PDF Direct - Virtual Device

Print PDF documents directly to Zebra Link-OS™ printers from ERP systems, such as Oracle and SAP, without middle-ware. Until now, printers have not been able to directly print PDF’s. Zebra has changed the game by creating PDF Direct – an on-printer app that allows Link-OS™ printers to directly receive and print PDFs - without middleware.

PDF Direct eliminates the complexity and extra steps associated with printer drivers and middleware platforms. This new approach has additional benefits:

  • By using PDF’s created by the ERP system, those documents can be archived for later retrieval and reprinting.
  • PDF’s can be created at the intended print size – eliminating the need to scale documents, which can induce bar code scanning issues.
