Xerox's New Multifunction Printer Combines Affordable Colour with
High-Productivity Workflow Tools

Seven additions to the black-and-white portfolio deliver enhanced printing, workflow and security features

TORONTO, April 19 /CNW/ - Xerox Canada's new colour and black-and-white multifunction printers (MFPs) offer advanced scanning, document workflow features and security enhancements at an affordable price.

Aimed at budget-minded small- and medium-size businesses (SMBs), the Xerox WorkCentre(R) 7120 colour MFP prints high-impact colour documents, such as presentations and budget charts. The MFP prints colour and black-and-white documents at speeds up to 20 pages-per-minute (ppm) using Xerox's Emulsion Aggregate High Gloss (EA-HG) toner, which produces smaller, more consistent toner particles, to create crisp text and sharper colour images.

"Today's MFPs do far more than copy and print - they improve the way work gets done," said Rick Dastin, president, Global Product Delivery Group, Xerox Corporation. "The WorkCentre 7120 helps SMB's maximize office productivity and produce affordable, impactful colour documents."

The WorkCentre 7120 is equipped with advanced document management features that add convenience and make office work easier by including:

    
    -  Routing documents to e-mail, network and content management software
       simultaneously for repeatable workflows
    -  Advanced colour scanning up to 55 ppm
    -  Faxing over IP, fax forward to e-mail and scan to/print from USB
    -  Xerox Auditron monitors colour printing costs.
    

The MFP also provides opportunities for SMBs to lower their environmental impact:

    
    -  One of the most compact hallway colour MFPs
    -  Consumes 3.08 watts of power in sleep mode
    -  Route and preview incoming documents on the interface or at PC to
       eliminate needless printing
    -  Earth Smart print driver defaults include two-sided printing with no
       banner pages
    

In addition, Xerox is updating its line of black-and-white MFPs. The Xerox WorkCentre 5700 Series includes seven new MFPs that handle everything from general office documents to high-volume print jobs. With print speeds up to 90 ppm, the MFPs can:

    
    -  Print, copy, scan or fax without interruption for quick turnarounds.
    -  Scan documents in colour.
    -  Move to the next job if the first job in queue is held up due to a
       lack of resources with the Print Around feature.
    

The WorkCentre 5700 Series comes equipped with advanced security features, including full support for the IPv6 network security standard, Image Overwrite to electronically "shred" data, fax isolation to prevent unauthorized access to data and Network Authentication to restrict access to scan, e-mail and network fax features.

"With advanced document security and workflow tools, the WorkCentre 5700 Series can help IT departments solve their most difficult document management challenges," said Dastin.

Both the WorkCentre 7120 and WorkCentre 5700 Series are built on Xerox's Extensible Interface Platform(R) (EIP), a technology that can be used to create customized workflow applications. For example, a law firm can scan information directly to a client folder from the MFPs' colour user interface without specifying the client name.
