The Mopria Alliance was launched in September 2013 by Canon, HP, Samsung, and Xerox with the aim of simplifying, promoting and increasing the accessibility of mobile printing and addressing the need for “simple, standardised, brand-agnostic mobile printing”. Since then, other OEMs have joined the alliance, including Epson, Kyocera and Konica Minolta.
Toshiba officially joined the association in September 2014, but has now revealed its membership and a range of MFPs that have received Mopria certification. This includes A3 colour MFPs including the e-STUDIO 2550C, 5055C and 6570C; A3 monochrome MFPs including the e-STUDIO 507 and 857; and A4 MFPs including the e-STUDIO 407CS and 527S.
The OEM stated that it joined the organisation because “the number of mobile users is expanding exponentially and the opportunity to print from those mobile devices is similarly increasing”. Toshiba’s membership of the Mopria Alliance, it adds, aims to “seamlessly bridge the worlds of mobility and paper” as part of the OEM’s ‘Together Information’ initiative.
This is the company’s “vision to better enable people and organisations to create, record, share, manage and display ideas and data”, and is based on the belief that “successful organisations are those that communicate information in the most effective way possible”.
