Media Sciences Ships Color Toner Cartridges for Use in Xerox(R) Phaser(R) 7300; OKI(R) 9300 and 9500; and Konica(R) 7830 Office Color Printers
OAKLAND, N.J., march 06- Media Sciences International, Inc., leading independent manufacturer of solid ink and color toner cartridges for office color printers, today announced the immediate availability of the Media Sciences® 9000 series of newly manufactured, universal, high capacity cartridges for use in Xerox® Phaser® 7300, OKI® 9300 and 9500, and Konica® 7830 office color printers. These cartridges replace and expand upon the Company’s TC7300 line of cartridges for use in the Xerox Phaser 7300.
The significant features and benefits of the Media Sciences 9000 line include:
Printer users save up to 49 percent when choosing Media Sciences over the
printer manufacturers’ brands.
List prices for the Media Sciences 9000 line are 14 percent lower than the TC7300 line it replaces. When compared to the printer manufacturers’ brands, the 9000 cartridges deliver end-user savings of up to 49 percent. The OKI, Xerox, and Konica printers for which the 9000 products have been designed are traditionally high volume printers. Therefore, end users can experience significant accrued savings when they choose Media Sciences.
Lower manufacturing costs to Media Sciences.
Media Sciences has been able to dramatically reduce the cost of the 9000 line of cartridges versus the TC7300 line it replaces, while maintaining its trademark high quality. The result is a lower selling price to the end user and distribution channel, while delivering substantially better margins to Media Sciences.
New, universal cartridges designed for use in four different printers.
As universal cartridges, the four (cyan, magenta, yellow and black) 9000 cartridges are designed not only for use in the Xerox 7300 office color printer, but also for use in three additional printers: OKI 9300 and 9500 and Konica 7830 office color printers, which together increase the installed base opportunity for the product line by nearly 80 percent. The universal nature of the Media Sciences 9000 cartridges means that distribution partners need only to inventory four Media Sciences cartridges for these four printers, in comparison to the 12 cartridges from the printer manufacturers.
Michael W. Levin, President and Chairman of Media Sciences International remarked on the new product line’s significance to the Company. “The product launch of the 9000 series of color toner cartridges brings more value to the end user and increases margins to the channel while significantly expanding the installed base opportunity. All Media Sciences’ constituents — customers, channel partners and stakeholders — benefit from its introduction.”
Other product news from Media Sciences since the start of its fiscal year on July 1, 2005, has included announcements of new solid ink products for use in the Xerox® Phaser® 8500 and 8550 office color printers and the Xerox WorkCentre® C2424 multifunction color printer. Announcements regarding new or upcoming products in the Company’s color toner cartridge line have included products for use in the Ricoh® Aficio® AP3800C and CL7000 and the OKI® 5000 and 7000 series of printers. Well known in the industry for its highly successful INKlusive® FREE Color Printer Program, Media Sciences expanded its INKlusive program offerings in August 2005 to include free printer programs for the Xerox Phaser 8500 and 8550, Xerox WorkCentre C2424, and OKI C5200n office color printers, for customers committing to a two- or three-year Media Sciences supplies agreement. All Media Sciences products present the customer with an opportunity to purchase high quality, warranty-protected office color supplies for a significant savings when compared to the OEM brand.
