HP INTRODUCES NEW UPC FONT PRODUCTS FOR LASERJET PRINTERS.
HP's new font DIMMs, SIMMs, and TrueType fonts on a disk mean that any LaserJet 4, 5, and 6 Family, and LaserJet 4000 and 8000 printer customer can create high-quality bar codes from within their Windows and non-Windows applications.
HP's UPC & EAN bar code products are based on Azalea Software, Inc.'s innovative bar code font technology licensed to HP. Azalea is the premier bar code and OCR font publisher and includes Agfa, International Typeface Corp., Monotype, and others among their font distributors in addition to Hewlett-Packard.
The font DIMM's will work with the new LaserJet 4000 and 8000 lines. The font SIMM's will work with LaserJet 4, 5, and 6 printers. These font products are available now directly from HP's Solutions Group at 541/715-5757. A disk accompanying the UPC/EAN hardware add-on includes utilities, sample code, and complete online documentation.
"Azalea Software and Hewlett-Packard are both committed to expanding HP's line of printer-based fonts for HP LaserJet printers. By using these hardware add-ons, LaserJet users can integrate high-quality bar code printing into all of their projects," says Jerry Whiting, President and CEO of Azalea Software, Inc. "We're excited to have our UPCTools font collection added to HP's catalog."
