Anoto works together with its partners to enable quality printing of the Anoto Microdot Pattern for a variety of business setups. Anoto always recommends the use of Anoto Qualified Printers and Anoto Certified Printing, but in certain cases this might not be possible or even necessary. In these cases, Anoto Tested Printers offer an alternative.
Anoto works with printer manufacturers in qualifying printing equipment, such as standard office colour laser printers, to ensure top-quality printing and printing products.
Qualified printers are always recommended, especially when the quality of the printed microdot pattern is of critical importance to the performance of the complete system.
Anoto has compiled a non-exhaustive list of qualified printers as well as the results of printers tested by Anoto,
Tested printers are more suited for PC-centric solutions and products that may not require the same level of quality as a qualified printer can offer. With tested printers, customers have a broader range of cost-effective printers to choose from.
