ePrintit Kiosk, world’s first mobile print kiosk, debuts at Toronto Airport
With the claws of tablets and smartphones getting deeper into our loves, printing technology doesn’t want to stay in the confines of our office space and home anymore. St Joseph Communications partnered with HP and Printer On, and launched the world’s first self-service public pay kiosk that lets consumers to print directly from their smartphones and tablets. Toronto Pearson International Airport is the first ever location where eight of these ePrintit Kiosks have been installed.
The kiosks come integrated with St. Joseph’s proprietary developed monitoring software, a HP colour laser printer, a Citizen dye-sublimation photo printer, online video camera, and 42” digital signage. Apart from the printing function, they will also provide a North America-wide directory of all restaurants, hotels, attractions, and theatres and will print out maps to the locations as well as general mapping and driving directions for any location. It would be just be a matter of time before these will become a routine accessory in airports across the world.
