Zebra Technologies Introduces TLP 3844-Z Printer

Vernon Hills, Ill., January 14, 2004-Zebra Technologies Corp. (Nasdaq: ZBRA), a global leader in delivering on-demand printing solutions for business improvement, today released the TLP 3844-Z, a powerful desktop thermal transfer label printer with features previously found only in larger industrial models. Native support for reduced space symbology (RSS), high-quality 300 dpi resolution, and fast output from a 32-bit RISC processor make the TLP 3844-Z ideal for prescription bottle and specimen labeling, component identification, and specialty retail applications.
The printer uses Zebra programming language (ZPL), which provides advanced monitoring, control, and application development features-designed originally for industrial printers-for use in an office or commercial environment. Parallel, serial, and USB interfaces are standard and internal Ethernet connectivity is optional, giving TLP 3844-Z users a variety of communication options. The 300 dpi resolution and powerful processor ensure outstanding performance when producing graphics, small RSS bar codes, two-dimensional bar codes, and complex label formats.
In addition, the 3844-Z is supported by Zebra's newly released BAR-ONE Desktop software, the first label design software that supports every Zebra printer control language, plus a variety of others. Companies who use a variety of bar code printers and software packages can reduce their enterprise printing costs and support requirements by using the powerful code converter feature to consolidate and standardize on a single software platform with minimal programming, conversion or support requirements. As the first desktop labeling software to support all of Zebra's printer control languages (CPCL, EPL and ZPL) BAR-ONE Desktop makes it extremely convenient for any Zebra customer to migrate label designs and applications to the product.
The TLP 3844-Z's compact size also helps it fit into tight places. The combination of printing, connectivity, and networking features included in its convenient desktop size make the TLP 3844-Z ideal for precision printing applications in hospitals, pharmacies, specialty retail, electronics and other manufacturing environments.
The TLP 3844-Z also features Zebra's unique OpenACCESS design for easy media loading and rugged, dual-wall construction for reliable operation in harsh environments.
