over the first couple of years of product development, there will be increasing numbers of small workteam, workgroup and departmental
printers and MFPs, with a huge range of paper-handling options to meet the needs of many different types of input and output workloads.
Question: Interfaces: just how do I connect these printers? They look like network printers, but I need to know about driver support, are they
supported on Windows and Mac and Linux/Unix?
Answer: Memjet is simply supplying the components and our partners will develop a broad range of devices, under their own brands, that
provide a range of functionality: connecting directly via USB, wirelessly, via the network, via Bluetooth, software drivers that
support a range of OSs and include GDI drivers, universal drivers, PDL drivers, etc. Some will use standard printer MIB protocols to
integrate with management software for job accounting (Liberty, Equitrack, Pharos, etc) or overall device management (Web JetAdmin,
MarkVision, etc). Others will work directly to create more integrated solutions. While Memjet is driving the basic architecture, our brand
partners will implement the final solution and final service architecture and drive the answer to these questions.
Question: I live in Hawaii and repair has always been a bugaboo. What kinds of exceptions should I have?
Answer: My guess is that repair in Hawaii will vary based on our brand partners service infrastructure. One advantage to the Memjet system vs. a laser printer system, for example, is that the entire printhead is replaceable. This will limit some service issues that require a printhead replacement.
