DirectOffice™ Mobile Print 3.0 Now Shipping in Tier One Mobile Phones and Tablets

BARCELONA, Spain–(EON: Enhanced Online News)–CSR plc (LSE: CSR; NASDAQ: CSRE) and Software Imaging Limited today
jointly launched DirectOffice™ Mobile Print 3.0, now shipping in top
tier manufacturers’ mobile phones and tablets including tier one
Android™ OEMs. DirectOffice Mobile Print 3.0 offers the ability to print
from mobile devices to most existing printers, delivering printed output
that matches the original, rather than simplified versions typically
rendered by earlier generation mobile print technologies.

“Unlike other mobile
printing solutions, which work with a limited set of printers and
document formats or require an investment in new devices, DirectOffice
allows users to print to their existing printers”

DirectOffice Mobile Print 3.0 will be on display at Mobile World
Congress in Barcelona, Spain, 27 February through 1 March 2012 in Hall
4, Level 0, Booth HS27.

“With the combined smartphone/tablet market expected to reach one
billion units by 2015, consumers expect and need to perform the same
functions on these mobile devices, with the same quality, as they do
from PCs,” said Neil Epstein, Senior Director of Product Marketing,
Document Imaging at CSR. “DirectOffice Mobile Print is the first mobile
printing solution designed to meet this need, without requiring drivers,
on the majority of printer models on the market today. For the first
time in mobile printing, what you see is truly what you get.”

Developed jointly between CSR and Software Imaging Limited, DirectOffice
Mobile Print 3.0 combines powerful print capabilities with seamless
integration with preloaded applications on smartphones and tablets, and
easy discovery of printers on a wireless network. “Unlike other mobile
printing solutions, which work with a limited set of printers and
document formats or require an investment in new devices, DirectOffice
allows users to print to their existing printers,” said Mike Phillips,
Director of Mobile Products at Software Imaging. With DirectOffice
Mobile Print, users can print Microsoft® Word, PowerPoint®, Excel® and
Adobe® PDF documents, web pages, emails and photos directly over Wi-Fi®
to their home or office printer –more than 85 percent of printers are
supported – or through multiple cloud service providers to most business
centre or public printers, all without installing printer-specific
drivers. Additionally, advanced automatic printer
discovery-and-configuration capabilities enable consumers to easily
locate, save and geotag printers for future use.

CSR will be at Mobile World Congress 2012 (Hall 4, Level 0, Booth HS27).
