<p>Fuji Xerox Printers Offers a Solid Choice for Colour Printing for Small to Mid-Sized Companies</p>
<p>Fuji Xerox Printers’ delivers world’s first multifunction printer based on solid-ink technology, delivering unmatched print quality and performance</p>
<p>Sydney, Australia – September 27, 2005 - Fuji Xerox Printers (FXP), the leader in printing innovation, today set another benchmark in document management technology with the launch of a complete new range of colour printing solutions including its first colour multifunction printer, scanner and copier based on FXP’s innovative solid ink technology.</p>
<p>Previously found only in FXP’s single-function laser printers, solid ink, the proprietary colour technology from FXP which uses solid, polymer–based ink instead of powdered toner, delivers unique benefits in energy efficiency, superior print quality and vibrant, true colours.</p>
<p>The WorkCentre C2424, designed for a small office or workgroup environment, offers the fastest first-page-out speed of any device in its class at just six seconds and prints up to 24 pages per minute (ppm). At a starting price of $4275.04 (inc GST), the WorkCentre C2424 is an affordable yet highly versatile print-scan-copy solution, and produces 97 per cent less waste than a typical laser multifunction printer.</p>
<p>The model also includes standard features that are usually optional in other multifunction printers including automatic two-sided printing, collation and scan to server (with high security internal hard disk drive) and scan to PC. Most features can be used with minimum fuss on the easy-to-use control panel or via the user friendly and intuitive graphical driver interface.</p>
<p>As a workgroup document management solution, it can manage multiple tasks and includes security features only available in high-end and more expensive models that enable save-secure-proof printing, and control access to scanned documents. It also includes mobile services capabilities, allowing users to submit jobs at a remote location through the Internet.</p>
<p>“Colour definitely is the fastest growing area of the market and as it has become more affordable, so it has opened up to a wider potential for customers, ” commented Paul Harman, operations manager for Australia and New Zealand, Fuji Xerox Printers.</p>
<p>“A key strength of the solid ink technology is the outstanding ease and lower cost of replenishing supplies, which consist only of the four ink sticks. This is in contrast to laser/LED units, which may require four toner cartridges and in some cases four drums, as well as additional consumable parts,” Harman said.</p>
<p>FXP also announced the availability of new solid ink printers, the Phaser 8500 and Phaser 8550. Both models, designed with small to mid-sized businesses (SMBs) in mind, provide superior design, ease of use, added functionalities, and a lower price point to deliver unbeatable value to businesses, at $2194.50 (inc GST) for the Phaser 8500 and $3184.50 (inc GST) for the Phaser 8550.</p>
<p>The printers boast industry leading speeds with a first page out time of five seconds for the Phaser 8500 and six seconds for Phaser 8550, three times faster than most competing brands. The Phaser 8500 prints colour at 24ppm while the Phaser 8550 prints colour at 30ppm.</p>
<p>With 2400 FinePoint image enhancement technology, the Phaser 8500 and 8550 provide fast quality prints on a wide range of media for professional desktop printing. Customers also get more with the standard and optional paper input trays, higher media flexibility, higher duty cycle, faster controllers, and proactive help tools.
