What is LIO?

  • LIO is a new input/output specification design for networking compatible HP printers in small workgroups. It has fewer features when compared to earlier I/O specifications such as EIO. LIO will be first implemented on low-end printers where these restrictions are not applicable.

  • LIO stands for "low-end input/output" and was the name chosen to differentiate the connectivity slot used on these Inkjets from the MIO (medium input/output) and EIO (enhanced input/output) connectivity slots used on other HP printers.
