MDBR Staff Writer Published 12 August 2010

Epson America and Royal Philips Electronics have agreed to integrate Epson ink jet printers and WorkForce all-in-ones with Philips ultrasound medical imaging systems in healthcare clinics and hospitals in the US and around the world.

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.

The 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.

Epson America consumer ink jets product manager Craig Allen said that now healthcare clinics and hospitals worldwide that use Philips ultrasound devices will have more flexibility when selecting a dependable printer or all-in-one to print patient information with ease and clarity.

Philips Healthcare vice president and ultrasound business unit controller and interim general manager Andrew Hatt said that providing new options to Philips ultrasound customers for off-cart printing using Epson Universal Print Drivers will help simplify and enhance customer experience.
