The Datamax S-Class family of ticket and tag printers represents a significant advancement in features, value, and performance for a direct thermal admissions ticket printer. The ST-3210 includes the most requested features in a tabletop ticket printer: up to 10 ips print speed, adjustable ticket width guides, user selectable firmware-resident printer languages, self-loading printhead mechanism, easy access printhead for cleaning, serial and parallel communication interfaces, and rugged metal cabinet.
Adding 300 dpi print resolution to the ST-3210 results in the ST-3306. In addition to all of the industry standard linear bar codes, the S-Class can also print complex two dimensional (2D) bar code symbologies including PDF417 and Datamatrix. As more and more ticketing venues incorporate the security of 2D-symbology usage, they will find that the ST-3306 is the ticket printer of choice with its high-resolution graphics and 300-dpi bar code printing capability.
The development of the ticket printer within Datamax was driven by market research identifying the potential growth of thermal printer sales within the ticket printing industry. The driving force for the growth is the combined demands for automation, printing of variable data, reduction of fraud and the increased use of the Internet as an avenue to print and sell tickets.
The need for computerized ticketing to automate the admissions process is now expanding to medium and small applications. These emerging markets include small office/home office, E-commerce, and s e c o n d a ryschools and universities, all requiring a less expensive overall admissions system. Use of the Internet along with a reasonably priced ticket printer will allow the market to expand to these smaller venues. The use of a demand printer ensures accuracy and reduces the opportunity for fraud and waste associated with preprinted tickets. Because tickets are valuable, the printer must be very easy to use, simple to load, and simple to maintain.
A growing number of admission systems and ticketing software companies have already certified the Datamax S-Class for use with their products. From theme parks to movie theaters, from symphony alls to professional sports arenas, the Datamax S-Class is an excellent ticket printing solution designed to keep your business in business, while saving you money.
