    Sharp Unveils New Color Multifunction Copier Line
    MX Series Color MFP Line Features Outstanding Image Quality
    January 
    2006 Sharp Document Solutions Company of America announces the first
    four of eight new models in a color MFP (multifunctional peripheral)
    series that represents a significant change for the copier industry:
    rather than developing discrete MFP engines for various line segments,
    Sharp has based all models in the series on a scalable engine design,
    giving Sharp customers access to eight new color models in less than
    six months. The MX Series products will range in speed from 23
    pages-per-minute (PPM) to 70 PPM.
    Today, Sharp introduces the line’s
    first four MFPs, which range in speed from 23 to 45 PPM (models
    MX-2300N, MX-2700N, MX-3501N and MX-4501N) and offer cost-effective
    color as well as advanced functionality, available previously on
    Sharp’s monochrome models. The MX Series models will support Sharp’s
    Open Systems Architecture, for seamless integration with network
    applications, as well as Sharp’s award-winning* security suite. All
    models come with 24-hour support from My Sharp, a dedicated online
    customer training Web site.
    Powerful and Reliable MFPs
    Designed
    for general office use, the new MX-3501N and MX-4501 make speedy work
    of any project with PPM speeds of 35 and 45 respectively. The MX-3501N
    prints and copies both color and black and white jobs at 35 PPM while
    the faster MX-4501N prints and copies black and white jobs at 45 PPM
    and 35 PPM for color. Both mid-sized MFPs complete jobs quickly with
    standard features like Sharp’s Color Scan2(TM) technology that
    minimizes paper handling while maximizing performance and providing
    faster scan speeds. To keep print and copy jobs processing efficiently,
    these networked MFPs have the highest on-line paper capacity in their
    class – up to 5,600 sheets.
    All models in the MX Series line utilize
    Sharp’s multitasking controller technology with dual job queuing to
    process copy, print and scan jobs more efficiently.
    The MX Series
    MFPs also enables users to print color or black and white files
    directly from a USB memory device, such as a thumb drive. For added
    convenience, customers can scan a document on the MFP and save it to a
    USB memory device in popular formats such as TIFF, JPEG, PDF and
    encrypted PDF . Additional USB-based features include device
    installation cloning and firmware updates through USB memory device.
    Ideal for larger machine deployments, device cloning allows technicians
    to apply the same set-up information to every machine so users have an
    identical experience on all of the MX MFPs they use. The software
    embedded into the MFPs hardware, also referred to as the firmware, can
    be updated using a USB memory device, eliminating the need for
    technicians to carry laptops for firmware upgrades. Only authorized
    technicians can upgrade the machines’ firmware.
    Full Featured to Meet Mid-Sized Business Needs
    The
    new entry-level document systems for small to mid-sized workgroups
    provide exceptional performance, with copy and print speeds in both
    color and black and white of up to 23 PPM on the MX-2300N and up to 27
    PPM on the MX-2700N. These compact and flexible models offer many
    innovative features, not found typically on MFPs in this category, such
    as advanced user account management, inbound fax routing to e-mail,
    secure print and scan-to-SMB.
    Network Security
    Since MFPs have
    become an integral part of the networked office , IT administrators are
    demanding more and more advanced security features. Sharp offers
    several layers of network and data security to deploy digital copying,
    printing, scanning and faxing safely in any business or government
    environment. The industry-leading security for these network-attached
    MFPs can be enhanced through data security kits, which encrypt document
    data using 128-bit encryption and erase the memory of a document on the
    hard drive by overwriting encrypted data up to seven times.
    For
    added security, the MX Series MFPs all have accounting and management
    tools to ensure that only authorized users can access the machines. The
    MX-4501N and MX-3501N can be programmed with up to 1,000 user accounts
    while the MX-2700N and MX-2300N offer 200 user accounts. These user
    accounts can be customized to better manage machine usage and related
    costs by setting limits on different features, such as color copying.
    The MX series can also be configured to require users to log into a
    corporate network, using LDAP protocols, via a virtual QWERTY keyboard
    on the MFP’s large LCD screen or external USB keyboard before they can
    copy, scan, fax or e-mail.
    Superior Image Quality and Finishing Options
    For
    superb reproduction quality, Sharp developed micro-fine toner
    technology and advanced image stabilization for enhanced image
    definition that delivers outstanding output on every page. The MX
    Series also monitors ambient conditions, such as humidity and
    temperature, during the imaging process to ensure optimal image quality
    and color balance.
    To collate, sort, staple and otherwise finish
    outputted jobs for a professional look and feel, the new MFPs offer a
    choice of finishing selections, including a compact internal finisher
    or a floor-standing saddle-stitch finisher. All four models have
    three-position stapling and three-hole punching options.
    Custom Application Integration with Sharp Open Systems Architecture
    Sharp
    Open Systems Architecture (Sharp OSA) is a development platform that
    opens the door to a broad array of value-added functionality and
    flexibility, all designed to deliver the power of customization to the
    customer. Sharp OSA leverages the inherent interoperability of Web
    services design to enable Sharp, its dealer network and ISV partners to
    better meet customer needs.
    Sharp OSA streamlines document workflow
    and enhances productivity by making the MFP a gateway for
    document-based business communications, enabling customers to automate
    tasks and save time. For example, businesses will be able to scan an
    invoice on the MFP and integrate that invoice into an accounting
    software package instantly to process payments without user
    intervention at the desktop. Additionally, Sharp OSA-enabled MFPs allow
    companies to control access and track usage more effectively by
    offering tighter integration capabilities for areas such as network
    security and accounting.
    Sharp is also partnering with developers to
    integrate all types of applications with Sharp MFPs. For faster
    deployment, Sharp OSA uses industry-standard protocols such as XML and
    SOAP, which allow the MFP to communicate with business-critical
    programs such as document management systems and workflow software, as
    well as perform expanded tasks on the network.
    Dedicated My Sharp Support
    The
    MX Series models come with My Sharp support that is customized by
    Sharp’s independent dealers to match the features of customers’ MX
    Series MFP. Customers visit their personalized My Sharp page to see
    more than 50 Web demonstrations that walk the user through typical and
    not-so-typical product usage and service questions. For example, users
    can use My Sharp to learn how to load toner or program complicated copy
    jobs. My Sharp also provides online access to user manuals and supply
    information so customers can get the information they need anytime with
    a few simple keystrokes.
