OKI Launches Anoto Qualified Printer
OKI Printing Solutions (the brand name for Oki Data Corporation) today announced a partnership with Anoto, the provider of solutions for the transmission of handwritten text from paper to digital media. The first integration project is already underway with the C5400, the first color printer to complete the Anoto Print Qualification Program.
The Anoto solution is similar to using a digital pen and paper as an interface to the digital world, as the pen stores everything you write in ink onto its digital memory. The paper is printed with the Anoto dot pattern (it is not visible to the eye, but gives the paper a slightly off-white color) and the pen takes a digital snapshot of anything written on the page. Anoto is the only company that licenses the dot pattern technology.
The Anoto solution is currently being used by more than 100 partners worldwide to help meet the challenge of speeding up communications in industries such as government, healthcare and logistics. For example, doctors issuing drug prescriptions on pre-printed forms produced on the C5400, only need to place the pen in the docking station at the end of his/her rounds for the prescriptions to be automatically sent to the pharmacy. This not only hastens the dispensing of medication, but also reduces the manual flow of paper.
In addition to valuable time savings, the Anoto solution provides resource and cost savings as users have the flexibility to print forms on demand rather than purchasing pre-printed forms.
The C5400 printer is available through OKI Printing Solutions regional sales offices and authorized solution providers.
