Brother Introduces New Flatbed Laser Digital Copier Printer (DCP)

  • 13 November, 2003 13:34

<p>The DCP-8020 and DCP-8025D Features Faster Printer/Copier</p>
<p>Brother International, a leading manufacturer of award winning Multi-Function Centres® has introduced two new, high featured Flatbed Laser Digital Copier Printers’ targeted at the Corporate/SME markets. As a 3-in-1 Digital Copier Printer, the DCP-8020 and DCP-8025D feature a laser printer, laser flatbed digital copier and colour flatbed scanner. The DCP-8020 and DCP-8025D come packed with a fast print speed of up to 16ppm, large 32Mb memory and a new 5-line back-lit LCD display. The DCP-8020 and DCP-8025D also has optional built-in networking capability. Specifically, the DCP-8025D also includes built-in duplex capability and an additional paper input source – a 50-sheet¤ multi-purpose tray for letterhead or envelopes.</p>
<p>Brother is seeing a dramatic shift from old analog technology copiers to the latest digital copying technology. This shift not only allows Brother to provide the consumer with a less service intensive machine, but digital technology enables Brother to also provide more value-added functions like printing and scanning, all in one unit. While these models are still compact enough for a small office, they are also robust enough for small corporate workgroups.</p>
<p>The new DCP-8020 and DCP-8025D includes high-speed USB 2.0∆ and IEEE 1284 parallel∆ interfaces, and is compatible with both Windows® and Macintosh® operating systems.</p>
<p>Both models function primarily as a flatbed digital laser copier- with print speeds of up to 16ppm. They include a 50-sheet¤ auto document feeder for easy reproduction of multi-page documents and with its back-lit 5-line LCD display, the control panel creates an enhanced user experience through greater ease of use and programming.</p>
<p>High Speed Printer With Copier Capabilities
As a business laser printer, the DCP-8020 and DCP-8025D have a fast print speed of up to 16ppm, HQ1200 dpi resolution printing (up to 2400x600 dpi), up to 250-sheets¤ standard paper capacity (expandable up to 500 sheets¤ with an optional second paper tray)‡ and support for PCL6 and BR-Script 3 (PostScript Level 3) emulations. It also includes a robust 32MB standard memory that is upgradeable to 160MB using industry-standard 100-pin DIMM memory‡. Specifically the DCP-8020 has a single sheet¤ manual feed and can be used for envelopes, letterhead and card stock.</p>
<p>Brother’s new DCP-8025D is an enhanced model, including all of the core features of the DCP-8020, plus two other key items for increased versatility. First, it incorporates built-in automatic duplex capability for two-sided printing. Using this function eliminates the complicated process for reinserting single sheets after one side has been printed. The duplex capability is not only for use when printing documents from your PC, but also for reproducing single-sided originals as 2-sided copies, thereby saving paper.
The other value-added feature on the DCP-8025D is a 50-page multi-purpose tray. While the DCP-8020 does offer a single-sheet bypass for specialised printing needs, the DCP-8025D comes standard with this multi-purpose tray. This makes it even more convenient to print on letterhead stationery, envelopes or cardstock.
Both models offer convenience and professional quality - expanding their suitability beyond home offices environments seeking the technological advantages of big businesses. Today, even corporate offices have found applications for digital copier printers that help to increase productivity without damaging their bottom line. These models also benefit the telecommuters or employees assigned to satellite offices by freeing them from the need to depend on the expensive services and workflow delays associated with copy centers.</p>
<p>Flatbed Digital Copier
As a digital copier, they provide fast copying up to 16cpm, reduction and enlargement from 25-400% in 1% increments, up to 99 copies, and a sorting function. They also allow for the ability to copy up to legal size documents from either the document glass or from the automatic document feeder. Also included is a “N-in-1” function to allow the user to copy multi-page documents to either 2-in-1 or 4-in-1 page formats.</p>
<p>Flatbed Colour Scanner
As a colour scanner, the DCP-8020 and DCP-8025D have the ability to scan colour documents at up to 9600 x 9600 dpi interpolated resolution (600 x 2400 dpi optical) on either the legal-size document glass or through the automatic document feeder. For Windows-based users there is an easy to use “scan to” button for scanning directly to an Image, OCR, File or e-mail applications. Document management and OCR software is bundled on the CD.
ScanSoft™ PaperPort® and TextBridge® OCR software are included standard for Windows users, and Presto! Page Manager (which also includes an OCR application) is included for Mac®.</p>
