Toshiba Joins Cortado Cloud-Printing Alliance

Toshiba Printer Cartridges Toshiba America Business Solutions (TABS) has joined the Cortado Cloud Printing Alliance, as part of its strategy for secure, wireless mobile printing from mobile devices such as Apple iPad and iPhone, Blackberry, Android and Symbian mobile devices.

The Cloud Printing Alliance was founded by Cortado, a division of ThinPrint AG, together with printer and Wi-Fi router manufacturers, Hot Spot providers, software developers, and mobile operators. The goal of the alliance is to work together to make on-demand mobile printing easy from any device and at any location. Current printer vendors who are members include Brother, Eastman Kodak, Konica Minolta, Kyocera Mita, Lexmark, Oki Printing Solutions, and now Toshiba.

With Cortado’s cloud-printing solution, documents can be stored in the cloud (using cloud services such as, Google Docs, etc.), and then printed from smartphones and tablets to any Wi-Fi or Bluetooth connected printer, regardless of device, printer or file type.

Cortado Cloud Printing ReadyCortado says its solutions supports “thousands of printer models from over 90 printer manufacturers worldwide,” and that it currently hosts more than 5,000 print drivers, with the number of print drivers it supports “constantly updated and expanded.” It says, however, that “printers most suitable for printing” are those marketed by Cloud Printing Alliance manufacturers. Recommended printers from Cloud Printing Alliance manufacturers display a “Cortado Cloud Printing Ready” logo.

The Cortado solution includes the Cortado Workplace app, which provides 2 GB of online storage, and can be set up for free when users install the Cortado Workplace app on mobile devices. It provides round-the-clock access to files and documents with wireless mobile cloud printing, regardless of the file type or user’s access to a PC. The user simply logs on with their Web-enabled mobile device and can use any installed imaging device. The drivers required to print are stored within the Cortado Hosting Center.

Noted TABS President and COO Mark Mathews. “One important feature often missing for many people is the ability to print while on the road. Now, due to our membership in the Cortado Cloud Printing Alliance, Toshiba MFPs will be fully supported and accessible from mobile devices.”
