SINGAPORE - Fuji Xerox announced the launch of a series of printers designed especially for small and medium businesses (SMBs), the DocuPrint C305 Series – A4 single-function and multi-function colour laser printers that deliver both efficiency and quality, and offer value for money. Available in two configurations – single function (DocuPrint CP305 d) and multifunction (DocuPrint CM305 df), the DocuPrint C305 Series offers high reliability and empowers small office workgroups of up to ten people with their outstanding productivity features.
The new network-ready DocuPrint C305 Series is compact in design yet capable of producing high-quality print results with ease. Producing up to 23 pages per minute in colour or monochrome, the DocuPrint C305 Series ensures the printing needs of any SMB are met.
Images are printed in high 600 x 600dpi for laser sharp results and advanced technologies such as Natural Image Enhancement (NIE) that correct the contrast and colour balance of images, ensuring brilliant colour output. To attain high quality results, Dimensional Accurate Colour Mapping intelligently ensures that documents are printed in optimum colours, while Direct Transfer Technology gives better registration to improve colour sharpness. With these technologies, the printers promise only stellar print outs.
Fuji Xerox’s exclusive EA-HG Toner (Emulsion Aggregation) Toner has also been incorporated into the series. Unlike a conventional toner, EA-HG Toner is prepared by Emulsion Aggregation, a chemical process used to create small uniform particle sizes of a toner. With smaller toner particles, copies and prints can be created using less toner on the paper and produce finer lines yielding a higher quality appearance. EA-HG Toner is also less energy intensive and features a lightweight fuser which allows the heat from theinternal lamp to reach the heat roll surface very quickly – enabling almost instant warm up time. There is also a Run Black function to continue printing jobs in black when colour toners run out.This promises SMBs not only efficiency, but also allows for the conservation of energy.
For offices that printhigh volumes, an additional 250-sheet tray can be added to the DocuPrint C305 Series for a larger paper capacity to maximise print efficiency, reducing the frequency of reloading paper or higher flexibility of having multiple types of paper in the printer. Users will also benefit from the option of having multiple paper types available simultaneously in different trays, such as letterheads or coloured paper.
Offering unparalleled ease-of-use and reliability, the DocuPrint C305 Series features security technologies that will give users greater peace of mind. To protect sensitive information such as financial or employee records, the DocuPrint C305 Series encrypts data sent over networks using SSL and IPsec data encryption. The user-friendly control panel lock lets business owners limit user access via password protection, while the IP Filter limits printer access to registered IP addresses. Additionally, Secure Print and Secure Fax Receive functions enable SMBs to set password protection on prints and faxes so that they are only printed when a password is entered to protect sensitive data.
In addition, Fuji Xerox's "Auditron" technology allows business owners to restrict print settings for various registered users, making print management easier and preventing the unauthorised duplication of sensitive documents.
For added convenience, the multifunction DocuPrint CM305 df features a Remote Printer Monitor, automatically displaying the status of print jobs so users can keep track of printing without actually walking to the machine. CentreWare IS allows administrators to configure and monitor printer status via the internet, saving workers a lot of time usually spent walking to and fro to the printer.
Most SMBs would appreciate a device that has the ability to perform multiple document functionsas it reduces the need to purchase different machines. This allows for cost savings on office equipment, as well as enhances productivity for SMBs as they no longer have to go through the hassle of operating different machines.The multifunction DocuPrint CM305 df combines copy, print and scan functions all in one printer – saving office space and reducing power consumption.
The DocuPrint CM305 df enables users to quickly and conveniently copy documents with ease, including enlargements and reductions from 25 to 400 percent. There is also an automated ID Copy feature to copy two sides of a small document on the same side of an A4 page.
High quality scanning of up to 9600 dpi is simple to use and to improve document flow, scans can be saved directly onto a USB storage device, an FTP server or a network folder. The Scan to Email function does not require a PC and works by simply by entering an email address.
The fax function works at a speed of 33.6kps and has the capacity to store 200 speed dials. This means quick, convenient faxing for users. For added convenience, the Direct Fax function allows users to send a fax directly from a computer, and to take convenience a step further, the fax function also allows faxes to be sent to multiple recipients via a group dial function.To further enhance productivity, the DocuPrint CM305 df comes with DocuWorks 7.0 Special Edition document management software – an intuitive document handling solution that enables the seamless integration of electronic documents created by various applications and paper documents imported from scanners.
Both models in the DocuPrint C305 Series meet stringent Energy Star compliance requirements for reduced power consumption and energy usage. When not in use, the DocuPrint C305 Series automatically goes into low power mode to save energy. Other environmentally-friendly features include automatic double-sided printing to reduce paper use. Toner fusion in traditional laser printers is an extremely power-intensive process, accounting for 50 to 80 percent of total power consumed. EA-HG Toner works at a lower fusing temperature by more than 20 percent compared with a conventional toner, therefore reducing the amount of energy consumed.
The new Fuji Xerox DocuPrint CM305 df and DocuPrint CP305 d are retailing at the recommended retail price of S$899 and S$659 (inclusive of GST) respectively through all authorised Fuji Xerox resellers now.
