Chennai: TVS Electronics, a city-based computer peripheral major, has launched a new dot matrix printer, MSP 255 Marathon, targeting the banks, educational institutions, and small and medium business segments. The new product is to strengthen the company''s hold in the 9-wire, 136-column printer segment.

With a tagline "Prints Faster, Lasts Longer,'' MSP 255 Marathon has the highest printing speed of 432 CPS (characters per second) in its category. The machine sports the new TVS ribbon cassettes and could print three times more than the other normal printers due to the high life span of 10 million characters per ink bank.
