<p>“The infusion of colour in business documents can create a competitive edge, which is one of the reasons why there is a growing demand for colour printing in the workplace” Graham Kittle, General Manager, Enterprise, Corporate and Government, Lexmark Australia and New Zealand. “With the number of colour impressions being created in offices each year, Lexmark’s focus is to give our enterprise customers easy to use laser devices that provide vivid colour printing at an affordable price.”</p>

<p>Lexmark X752e Colour Laser MFP</p>
<p>Building from the award-winning heritage of Lexmark’s colour laser printer and MFP solutions, the Lexmark X752e colour MFP provides printing, copying, scanning and faxing in a single device. The Lexmark X752e includes a 50-page automatic document feeder, providing single-pass duplex colour scanning, a 33.6 Kpbs fax, and a 10/100 Ethernet network connection.</p>
<p>Through the Lexmark X752e’s simple to use intuitive touch-screen interface, customers can easily access the most commonly used functions, customise standard functions and integrate 3rd party solutions such as Lexmark’s Document Solutions Suite.</p>
<p>The C752 and X752e are both appealing offerings for CIOs and CFOs as they deliver attractive price points, high performance and money-saving colour printing features. The key elements that provide enterprises with added control over colour printing costs are:</p>
<p>‘ColorSaver’. This mode reduces colour toner in images and graphics while preserving crisp text, delivering ‘office quality’ and reduced printing costs.</p>
<p>‘Toner Darkness Settings’. Up to 50% savings on printing costs can be achieved via the five user selectable levels of toner darkness on the C752. This provides customers with the ability to determine the best compromise of print quality and cost.</p>
<p>‘Coverage Estimator’. The Lexmark Coverage Estimator provides users with an indication of the toner coverage on any printed page. This estimation of toner coverage can be used to calculate an approximate cost, allowing customers to discover for themselves that printing colour documents on colour laser printers is frequently an economical way to create these documents.</p>
<p>‘Monochrome print lock’. Authorised IT personnel can turn the C752 into a black and white only printer for a specified period of time, specific job, or specific group of users. In this mode, all documents, no matter their origin, will print in black and white.</p>
<p>‘Proof Then Print’. The user can print a proofing page prior to printing multiple copies to ensure the document is accurate. If OK, the user can simply press the “Go” button on the printer to print the remainder of the copies.</p>
<p>The Lexmark C752 and X752e are available immediately in Australia. More information about these products can be found at</p>
