Working with a range of POS software partners, Star provides a wide portfolio that effectively meets the needs of venues looking for traditional or tablet POS solutions. Whether you require an Ethernet printer in the kitchen or a Bluetooth printer in the bar, Star can provide a tailored solution to meet your POS printing needs. Or, maybe you prefer one printer with multiple interfaces reducing the need for different models across the venue. Offering IPX2 splashproof certification, ideal for demanding hospitality environments, Star is unique in providing exceptional functionality alongside practical and stylish design.
In fact, Star is the only POS printer manufacturer to offer:
- POS printer with 5 traditional and unique interfaces and IPX2 rating
- USB Lightning POS printer providing direct communication and charging with an iPad, iPod or iPhone via the Apple-supplied lightning cable to ensure connection is maintained at all times
- Apple AirPrint POS printer
The hospitality landscape is constantly evolving with a distinct shift in recent years towards Cloud-based software for both traditional terminals and tablet POS solutions with all the benefits the latter provides in terms of flexibility and reduced costs. Recognising this, Star is at the forefront of POS innovation with cost-effective, high-performance solutions including the first POS printer with 5 traditional and unique interfaces and multiple peripheral Hub operation.
mC-Print2™ and mC-Print3™ seamlessly combine sophistication with functionality and aesthetically match the sleek, modern design of tomorrow’s hospitality venues to provide feature-rich, front-feed compact printers. With a print speed up to 250mm/second, the printers can uniquely feature all of the following interfaces in one model: Ethernet LAN; Bluetooth (MFi); traditional USB; lightning USB (data and charge USB for iOS) and CloudPRNT™ as well as Hub functionality for more than one peripheral; scanner, customer display, etc. Ever mindful that venues are looking for sustainable solutions, Star has ensured the 58mm model is as intelligent as the 80mm model.
Star’s aesthetic design is not only stylish but also offers practical functionality for a variety of environments. In particular, the soft operating switches and ‘protected’ control boards as well as IPX2 rating allow these printers to operate efficiently in difficult or harsh environments. And, with easy Ethernet setup / static IP address setup using the Star Utility (Native) via USB, installation costs are kept to a minimum. Incorporating Star’s Cloud Services with digital receipting and Internet device management, mC-Print offers the next generation of POS printer that boasts a wealth of onboard marketing and receipt tools.
This series accompanies Star innovation in both traditional and tablet POS with the first AirPrint POS printer, TSP654II AirPrint, as well as the first USB Lightning POS printer to provide direct communication and charging via the Apple-supplied lightning cable ensuring connectivity is maintained at all times.
For direct cable communication and charging with iOS tablets, the latest addition to the renowned TSP100 futurePRNT™ series is the unique TSP143IIIU. This is the only USB receipt printer today to communicate and charge simultaneously and directly via the Apple-supplied lightning cable with an iPad, iPod or iPhone for reliable USB communication. The printer removes the insecurity of wireless connection and seamlessly combines the flexibility and cost savings of tablet POS with the reliability of traditional POS.
Tablet POS offers the advantages of versatile Cloud-based software alongside compact, low cost hardware. However, it has one disadvantage which is no connected peripheral control. Recognising this, Star has developed the TSP654II CloudPRNT-POS™ that allows Cloud-based software to run on any tablet or smartphone (Windows, Android, Linux or iOS) with peripherals controlled through the printer to provide a complete POS transactional solution with all the advantages of tablet POS.
