IRVINE, CA, Jul 31, 2012 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) —
, a leading global provider of smart
M2M connectivity solutions, today announced the worldwide
availability of its new xPrintServer(TM) – Home Edition, the
follow-up to the company’s award-winning xPrintServer – Network
Edition, the industry’s first and only plug-and-print hardware
solution for printing from iPads(R), iPhones(R), and virtually any
Apple iOS(R) device.
“Lantronix has hit on an incredibly simple but powerful solution for
home users of iOS devices,” said Jeff Wolfe, president and co-founder
of Wolfe Engineering, a California-based civil engineering firm. “The
inability to quickly and easily print from your iPad has been a
source of frustration for Apple enthusiasts since the iPad launch.
With no apps to download, no software to install, and no need to buy
a new printer, the xPrintServer has surpassed our expectations and
should be a success with even the most novice of home users.”
The xPrintServer – Home Edition: Key Differentiators
xPrintServer – Home Edition boasts the same ease-of-use and high
performance as xPrintServer – Network Edition, and has the added
benefit of transforming USB printers to network printers. Now instead
of being tied to only one PC or Mac computer, the USB printer will be
available over the home network to all networked PC and Mac computers
in addition to the iOS devices.
-- Ease-of-Use. No IT experience required. Simply open the box, plug it in, print. -- No Software. No software or apps to purchase, install, or support on the iOS device. -- One xPrintServer, Multiple Printers and Users! Preserve your investment in USB printers. One xPrintServer - Home Edition supports multiple USB printers, up to two network-connected printers, and an unlimited number of iOS devices and users. -- Share USB Printers. No longer tied to a single PC or Mac computer, USB printers will now be available to all PC and Mac computers on a home network in addition to the iOS devices. -- No Configuration. The xPrintServer - Home Edition auto-discovers and auto-provisions printers. -- Always-on and Economical. Unlike most app solutions, the xPrintServer - Home Edition does not require a high power consumption PC or Mac computer to be on. The xPrintServer - Home Edition also has a very environmentally friendly power consumption of approximately 1 watt. -- Print Everything. If it can be viewed, opened, or read on an iOS device, it can be printed with the xPrintServer.
The xPrintServer: Open it. Plug it in. Print!
xPrintServer – Network Edition and Home Edition are the first Apple
iOS print servers compatible with the new iPad, iPad2, iPhone, iPod
touch, and virtually any device running Apple’s iOS mobile operating

easy-to-use hardware solution that utilizes the iOS native print menu
and requires no additional applications, software downloads, or
printer driver installations. With automatic printer discovery and no
configuration, printing is fast, easy and hassle-free. Simply open
the box, plug the xPrintServer anywhere into the network or router,
