Mobile and wireless printing is a convenient tool that allows educators to print from any device rather than having to leave the classroom. As a result, they can spend more time on student-focused tasks.

Understanding these market trends, OKI will be demonstrating color banner printing on its reliable color single function printers, along with its mobile and wireless technologies on its durable color and mono MFPs. OKI’s passion for education is evident in the company’s broad portfolio of printers and related solutions tailored to the school or district environment – from classrooms to computer labs, to administrative offices and libraries.
