Mutoh America, Inc., manufacturer of wide-format printers has added ValueJet Status Monitor (VSM) to its product portfolio. VSM is a software application offered free to Mutoh customers. It is used to monitor the health and status of the company's ValueJet printers. This includes monitoring ink levels, heater settings, firmware updates, color output, and more.

Printer functions are checked by VSM to ensure the printer is providing the user consistent output and notifies the operator via email or smart phone if there is a problem.

Operators can multitask with peace of mind because VSM includes an email notification system to alert the operator to several pre-programmed messages including printer status, low ink, media end, and more.

The system is currently available on the VJ-1324, 1624, and 1608HS printers. New VSM-capable printers and smart phone remote access apps will be announced in the near future, the company says.
