Hello everyone,


I have 2 pieces of medical equipment that are used fairly consistently in my office. They dont have access to the office network, both output to parallel for printing and each uses its own ~vintage~ printer. I would like to consolidate both printers into one color laser unit. Im not even sure if they even sell parallel printers anymore.


Does anyone know of any modern color laser printers that have a parallel input? Is there any type of conversion cable on the market I can use?


Any ideas would greatly be appreciated.

I'm sure there are some parallel to serial(USB) boxes for your needs.  BlackBox makes  some and KVM has a number too.
