Newton, MA (PRWEB) August 11, 2010
Lyra Research, the digital imaging authority (http://www.lyra.com), will host a free, live Webcast that will discuss the hot topic “Cloud Printing: Fleeting Fad or the Industry’s Future?” on Wednesday, August 18, at 12 p.m. eastern daylight time. Lyra’s President Charles LeCompte and Vice President of Publications Ann Priede will examine which companies (Google, HP, Lexmark, etc.) are working on technology related to cloud printing and discuss why users should print from the cloud and what’s next for cloud printing. Attendees will also get a quick tour of The Hard Copy Observer Web site’s features and the key industry coverage that this online publication provides.
“Is cloud printing important? It certainly is new, and it certainly makes it possible to print a document in Boston when you are in Los Angeles, but the question remains—is there a real need for it? Today, the answer is probably ‘no’ but it will be ‘yes’ in the future because there will be applications that will make it desirable,” said Charles LeCompte, president of Lyra.
Lyra’s Hard Copy Observer (http://observer.lyra.com/thelyraweb/) has delivered in-depth coverage of this new trend. To read more about cloud printing in several free articles published on The Hard Copy Observer Web site, go to http://observer.lyra.com/thelyraweb/BrowseArticles.aspx?CatID=11&AspxAutoDetectCookieSupport=1.
