More on Mopria and Certification of Printers
June 14, 2014
Back in April of this year, we had the opportunity to speak to Emily Ketchen, of the Mopria Alliance and HP about some of the background of how the Alliance was formed, their membership, and much more. We recently had the chance to follow-up regarding further details about the certification process itself and future plans. Below are the statements from a Mopria spokesperson:
On the certification process:
Mopria allows companies to self-test their devices, following a protocol outlined by Mopria. We also hold testing "events" where companies can bring their products and test them alongside others. This allows companies to do a self-test in a common location, where they can ask questions and defer to an on-site expert that will help get quick answers. This is a great tool for first-time vendors. Once the test has been completed successfully, they submit it to a certification manager for review and approval. Once approved, the device is officially Mopria-certified, and simply needs to be added to the Mopria website.
How long does the process take?
Have all the members of the Alliance committed to make every future printer Mopria-certified
