Seiko SLP webcam software
Seiko Instruments today introduced an update to its Smart Label Printer software, adding new webcam support. Compatible with several Logitech Quick Cam models - the Chat, Ultra Vision, and Pro 900 - and the Ecamm iMage, it is designed to allow users to directly place images on labels, to create personalized address labels and temporary security cards, among other things. Seiko claims that they are the first to introduce webcam compatibility directly with a label printer. Update: The company today told MacNN that the software is compatible with Apple's iSight cameras.
The updated software also features the ability to switch between millimeters and inches; offers better compatibility with more hardware print servers; adds a new driver and installer. In addition, the company said the update adds new label sizes and new templates: however, compatibility with the latest Leopard OS was not specified.
