Seagull Adds Support for New Toshiba Thermal Barcode Label Printer Series

Bellevue, Wash., USA - Seagull Scientific, the world's first and largest developer of true Windows® drivers for thermal and other industrial printers, announced with driver version 7.3 it has added support for several thermal barcode label printers from Toshiba America Business Solutions - including the B-EX4T1 and B-EX4T2 thermal printer series. Toshiba says that the two new printer series, released on April 2, 2012, boast the lowest cost of operation, flexibility and ease of use in vertical markets such as manufacturing, retail distribution centers or in-store and transportation/logistics.

The drivers provide users of virtually any Windows-based program access to the advanced features of the Toshiba thermal label printing solution. This includes print head checking, setting of ribbon type with the appropriate ribbon motor voltage, print job status monitoring, and use of "ribbon save" on the B-EX4T1 printer. When Drivers by Seagull® are used along with Seagull's BarTender WYSIWYG design and print software, users get a variety of enhanced functions, such as dynamic text and bar code formatting, powerful database access, professional drawing features and security management functions.

Harold Boe, president of Seagull Scientific, said, "We are pleased to offer extensive driver support for Toshiba's thermal barcode label printer line, as these drivers will allow their resellers and users worldwide to get the best possible performance out of Seagull's BarTender label software. Our close relationship with Toshiba allows us to leverage their experience with auto-identification technologies and help us develop superior service and products."

"With the introduction of the B-EX4T2 thermal printer line, Toshiba continues to grow its product portfolio to address our customers' needs in several vertical markets that require this type of industrial-grade printing solution," said Joseph Contreras, director of product and solutions marketing for Toshiba America Business Solutions, Inc. "Support from Seagull Scientific extends the B-EX4T2 Series' list of industry-best features to a wide range of compatible applications that our customers utilize on a daily basis."
