Ricoh Corporation Introduces The AC205
New Multifunction Digital System Delivers Out-of-the-Box Results
WEST CALDWELL, N.J., Nov. 05– Ricoh Corporation, the leading provider of digital office equipment, today launched the AC205 Digital Imaging System, a new generation in Ricoh desktop Multifunction Products (MFPs). With advanced copier and network printer functionality, full color and black and white scanning, high-end Super G3 Fax capabilities and an all-in-one toner cartridge, the AC205 empowers workgroups of any size to optimize productivity and out-perform their competition.
The AC205 offers a PCL6 black & white network printing and digital copying speed of 22 pages per minute, along with full-color network scanning, G3 faxing capabilities and an all-in-one toner cartridge. The system’s advanced digital copying and scanning allows for crisp, clear prints and paper saving features, such as the ability to print both sides of a document onto a single side of paper. In addition to a maximum paper capacity of 550 sheets, the AC205′s 50-sheet bypass tray enables users to print or copy directly onto transparencies, labels, card stock, and envelopes, which not only reduces time and printing costs, but also expands the versatility of the system within an organization. Additionally, standard with 3 seconds per page G3 faxing, and a generous 4MB memory capacity, the AC205 offers Printer Settings Utility software that allows users the ability to manage their Address Book from their desktop.
The AC205 is a compact, sophisticated digital imaging system with network- ready capabilities that allows offices to streamline document management. Featuring Scan-to-Email functionality, users can scan full-color or black and white images, photos or logos, and forward them directly to clients or vendors via Outlook Express. Also standard, Readiris Pro 9 OCR Software converts hardcopy documents into text format when scanned by the AC205 for easy editing. In addition to sharing digital images and information, users can remotely monitor and manage the AC205 through any Web browser using the standard Web Image Monitor Type 103 software.
“Today, small offices and workgroups, as well as home offices need to remain competitive without paying a high price for technology,” said Hede Nonaka, vice president of marketing for Ricoh Corporation. “To help combat those restraints, Ricoh is proud to offer the AC205, a cost-efficient, advanced digital imaging system that streamlines job output through network printing, scanning, and copying.”
A truly versatile and user-friendly MFP, the AC205 offers a USB Flash Drive Port that enables users to print documents stored on a USB Flash Drive or scan documents directly to a USB Flash Drive. Additionally, system data can be downloaded to a USB Flash Drive — such as Phonebook entries and system settings — creating a convenient, portable data backup system.
The AC205 is now available at a suggested retail price of $620.00.
