Seiko debuts new SLP
Seiko Instruments today unveiled the SLP 440, a Smart Label Printer (SLP) with a small footprint offering simple setup with 300dpi thermal printing capability. The device supports 2D barcoding, enhanced networking, and graphics. The SmartCapture feature automatically recognizes information from specific Mac and PC applications, inserting it directly into the SLP software. Users can highlight and "grab" text from standard desktop computing applications, such as ACT, Goldmine, Word, and Outlook for easy output on a label via SmartCapture. The SLP 440 also includes new software that runs natively on Intel Macs as a Universal Binary. The SLP 440 is expected to ship this month for $160, and requires Mac OS X 10.2 or later.
