Demo: Pharos Beacon and Universal Print

Pharos Beacon integrating Universal Print (Prototype)

This video shows how easy it is to integrate Universal Print and Beacon cloud services to create a simple, serverless secure printing environment that’s easy to manage. Organizations running Universal Print can add a critical layer of security and confidentiality to their printing workflows, and also leverage comprehensive print analytics to gain the insights needed to continually optimize their print environment.

Secure Printing for Your Azure Environment

Universal Print will be part of Microsoft 365, helping to simplify office printing for IT managers and employees. Universal Print leverages the Internet Printing Protocol (IPP) and Azure Active Directory to make it easy for administrators to manage employee access to printers and enable direct printing workflows without requiring any print servers.

Microsoft Azure

Microsoft and Pharos share a vision of a world in which printing is simple, secure, and free of print servers. We look forward to supporting our customers who plan to use Universal Print and Azure Active Directory to simplify their printing operations.

Universal Print is currently in private preview and is scheduled for public launch in January 2021. Pharos customers who are considering Universal Print as part of their Microsoft 365 service can contact us for assistance and support with their integration.

Q: What printers work with Universal Print?
