Epson partners with Philips to offer printing solutions

Aug. 13, 2010

LONG BEACH, Calif. – August 11, 2010 – Epson America today announced an agreement with Royal Philips Electronics that will help pair Epson ink jet printers and WorkForce all-in-ones, designed specifically for business environments, with Philips ultrasound medical imaging systems in healthcare clinics and hospitals in the U.S. and around the world, wherever Epson printers are available. This is possible due to the unique Epson ESC/P-R Print Class Driver that enables users to print to a full line of Epson ink jet printers from a wide variety of digital equipment.

Prior to incorporating Epson printers, Philips Healthcare was using printer models that each used a unique printer driver and Philips was tasked with qualifying each one. This was a laborious process since Philips’ ultrasound devices had long lifecycles and the selected competitive printers often became obsolete before the process was complete. When paired with a supported Epson printer or all-in-one, compatibility is no longer an issue due to the innovative Epson ESC/P-R driver.

The Epson ESC/P-R Print Class Driver supports applicable media types, paper sizes and associated printing modes suitable for Philips ultrasound systems and Epson inkjet printers. This unique driver allows many kinds of devices to connect and communicate with Epson inkjet printers, expanding possibilities for use with medical equipment, measuring equipment, electronic whiteboards, and in the home with home electronics and game machines.
