    In a Move to leverage its strength in the PC peripherals space throughout the commercial solution provider channel, Samsung is throwing its hat into the colour-laser printer arena. Up until now, the vendor manufactured only a monochrome printer line.

    Samsung’s first entries into the space are slated to ship later this quarter, said Samsung executives at a press conference in the US last week.

    One configuration of the CLP-500 will ship initially to the office superstore space during the fourth quarter, but Samsung will add wireless and networking functionality to the printer before shipping it to the commercial reseller channel in the first quarter of 2004, said Rey Roque, vice president of product marketing at Samsung’s Digital Information Technology Division.

    “The printer will fall under the Power Partner program,” an initiative under which Samsung provides financial incentives — including marketing funds and rebates — to solution providers that sell a broad spectrum of the company’s PC peripherals, Roque said. Consumables will fall into that category also, he said.

    “When you combine this printer with our strong storage and display business, a solution provider can really start to accelerate its financial return from Samsung,” Roque said.

    The CLP-500 will produce five pages per minute in colour and 20 ppm in monochrome, company executives said.

    In addition, Samsung will manufacture its own colour-laser print engines, which will contain fewer moving parts than other printers and therefore be measurably quieter machines, they said. The CLP-500 also will ship with USB 2.0, built-in IEEE 1284 parallel interfaces, a 250-sheet cassette and a 100-sheet document feeder.
