Newton, MA (PRWEB) November 09, 2011
Lyra Research, the digital imaging authority (http://www.lyra.com) will host a free, live Webcast titled On the Go: Mobile Printing Drives Consumer, Office, Enterprise, and Graphics Market Initiatives on Thursday, November 17, at 12:00 p.m. eastern daylight savings time. Ann Priede, vice president of publications; Jim Lyons, senior editor; and Christine Tuohey, editor, will present their views on the state of the mobile printing market and where this hot market will be heading.
In 2011, the mobile printing movement caught fire. Previously, mobile printing was primarily of interest to individual business travelers who wanted to print documents on the road and consumers with smartphones or tablets who wanted to print materials such as photos, directions, or receipts. Now, the demand for mobile printing has migrated into the enterprise and graphic-arts markets as the utilization of tablet computers and smartphones have become essential instruments that enable users to get work done.
“Mobile printing has been one of the most talked about trends in the imaging industry in 2011,” said Ann Priede, vice president of publications, Lyra Research. “Over the past year, Lyra’s The Hard Copy Observer has devoted significant coverage to this growing market as a result of its influence on the consumer, office, enterprise, and graphic-arts printing markets and its untapped potential. The members of Lyra’s editorial team are excited to share their thoughts on the current state of mobile printing and the new initiatives that are on the horizon.”
Mobile Printing Market Insight

Almost half of the respondents said they have not printed from these devices but they expect to do so. Another quarter of the respondents have not printed from these devices but do not expect to do so. A small number of respondents said they weren't sure if their device has print capability or not.
