<p>Lexmark introduces powerful combination of colour and convergence with new colour lasers</p>
<p>– Products provide superior performance and quality in colour output –</p>
<p>SYDNEY, 25 October 2004 – Lexmark has introduced the region’s first million page colour laser printers, it was announced today.</p>
<p>The Lexmark C760, the Lexmark C762 and the Lexmark X762e multifunction product (MFP) are powerful workgroup devices with outstanding performance, print quality and flexibility.</p>
<p>The new Lexmark products are the only colour laser devices rated for 1 million pages with proper maintenance, and the 100,000-page maximum monthly duty cycle of the C762 can easily accommodate high-volume printing environments. The high-yield 15,000 page toner cartridges significantly reduce costly interventions and offer a monochrome cost of printing that is equal to today’s workgroup monochrome lasers.</p>
<p>“The combination of high speed colour output and a low-cost path to multifunction colour has resulted in a most compelling value proposition in the colour market today,” said Graham Kittle, general manager, enterprise, corporate and government, Lexmark Australia and New Zealand. “Workgroups can use this extremely reliable technology for their most demanding colour jobs, and administrators will be amazed by the ease of use and low cost of ownership.”</p>
<p>Powerful Performance</p>
<p>The new products feature single-pass technology and can print up to 24 pages per minute (ppm) in both monochrome and colour. With a time to first print on colour jobs of as little as 15 seconds, the majority of jobs get done in a hurry, and the 600 MHz controller quickly processes large and complex colour applications.</p>
<p>High Resolution Print Quality</p>
<p>At the heart of these new products is 4800 CQ resolution, exclusive Lexmark technology that automatically adjusts dot size and shape simultaneously. This unique technology delivers sharp colour for both images and business graphics. Pantone calibration complements this technology to deliver the consistent and accurate colours that customers expect.</p>
<p>New Colour Solutions</p>
<p>The new products have been designed to support two colour applications that many businesses have been requesting in a product they can purchase and use internally to reduce costs, banner printing and outdoor signage. The products can print up to 914 mm (36”) long banners on demand, providing a much more affordable solution for signage in small and medium sized businesses. They can also produce low-cost outdoor signage for retail stores and other commercial enterprises.</p>
<p>To help customers control usage and reduce printing costs, both printers come with Lexmark’s unique ColorCare technology that provides a variety of cost-saving colour management tools. The newest addition is Colour Print Permissions, a feature which allows administrators to centrally control colour printing costs by identifying authorised users.</p>
<p>Lexmark X762e</p>
<p>The Lexmark X762e delivers a most compelling value proposition by offering the performance and functionality of a larger departmental device at a fraction of the cost. The power of the Lexmark X762e starts with the e-Task interface, an intuitive, easy-to-use, colour touch-screen display. The award-winning e-Task interface allows first-time users to easily transfer documents back and forth between hardcopy and electronic formats for efficient, effective and economical improvements to virtually all paper-based processes. Coupled with Lexmark Document Solutions Suite, customised workflow solutions can be initiated with the touch of a button.</p>
