Listed beneath this video was this note in Italian:  “Questa è una mia vecchia amica, una simpatica stampante italiana a matrice seriale. Nel 2002 ero l’unico ingegnere IBM a lavorare con Compuprint per portare questa stampante sul mercato come IBM 4247-V03. Nel 2004 abbiamo introdotto la prima LAN Ethernet AFP-IPDS completamente integrata. Nel 2008, e dopo che IBM Printing Systems è stata venduta a Ricoh, abbiamo rilanciato la stessa stampante del 4247-Z03. Le tecnologie elettroniche di questa stampante sono state rinnovate un paio di volte nel corso degli anni, ma fondamentalmente è la stessa bestia che era stata sviluppata da Compuprint 18 anni fa. Lunga vita alla stampante Serial Impact!”

With the assistance of Google Translate, in English, it reads with this nice sentiment —

This is an old friend of mine, a nice Italian serial matrix printer. 
In 2002 I was the only IBM engineer working with Compuprint to bring this printer to market as the IBM 4247-V03. 
In 2004, we introduced the first fully integrated AFP-IPDS Ethernet LAN. 
In 2008, and after IBM Printing Systems was sold to Ricoh, we relaunched the same printer as the 4247-Z03. 
This printer's electronic technologies have been revamped a couple of times over the years,
but it's basically the same beast that was developed by Compuprint 18 years ago. 
Long live the Serial Impact printer!
