Color Printer Interfaces For Amiga, ST
Okidata has announced that the Okimate 20, a color thermal transfer printer, can now be easily interfaced with the Amiga and Atari ST through its Plug 'N Print modules. The module is included in the $268 price for the printer, and contains everything the user needs to begin printing immediately: a data cable, black and color cartridge ribbons, and sample computer paper.
    In addition to printing over 100 colors, the Okimate 20's 24-element printhead provides correspondence at 80 cps in draft mode and 40 cps in NLQ mode. Users can select from several different type fonts, including wide print, boldface, fine print, and italics. Underlining, superscript, and subscript are also standard features.
