Toshiba has launched what it calls « the world’s first operation Print-on-Tag RFID solution. » What’s that mean? It can print label information directly onto RFID tags. It is the TEC B-SX series of label printers from Toshiba that has accomplished this feat.
The technology utilized by Toshiba is called SPRINT—no, it isn’t some twisted cellphone RFID cameraphone printer that will rape you on overage charges—SPRINT actually stands for Short Pitch RFID Encoding Technology. This printer will help the exponentially growing RFID market by providing a technology that the smaller-sized enterprises will be able to afford and use. – Travis Hudson
