The Marvell mPrint mobile printing platform supports up to four users simultaneously. Individuals may work with the Marvell mPrint's HTML-5 based user interface on a variety of mobile devices, including smartphones and the Marvell mPrint's removable tablet, which is also capable of functioning independently as a tablet computer. Whichever device is used, the Marvell mPrint's Guided Task Flow feature makes viewing, sharing, printing or archiving documents easy.
The technologies shown in the Marvell mPrint printing platform are available to mobile computing and imaging providers now. With Marvell's technologies, leading manufacturers can build richer, easier-to-use printing and mobile document management products and bring them to market faster.
