SHARP Enhances A4 Line With New Workgroup Monochrome Laser Printers
MAHWAH, NJ ( February 19, 2009 ) – Underscoring its commitment to providing dealers with robust products to meet the growing demand for managed print services, Sharp today introduced the DX-B350P and DX-B450P -- two new high-performance, monochrome laser printers. Featuring enhanced print speeds, advanced security features, and IT-friendly configuration and management features that will save on time, energy and money, the DX-B350P and DX-B450P are versatile, economical products that enable dealers to integrate an end-to-end solution that meets the printing requirements of nearly any size office workgroup.
The DX-B350P and DX-B450P enhance the opportunity for Sharp dealers to offer managed print services, giving them more options to meet customer’s specific needs. These models provide a suite of intuitive tools to manage, monitor and maintain a fleet of Sharp devices, and include an embedded web page that allows IT administrators to easily configure and manage each device remotely, saving on support costs and increasing service efficiency. Other device management capabilities include printer status monitor, automated email alerts, and compatibility with Sharp’s Printer Administration Utility (PAU).
With speeds of up to 35 and 45 pages-per-minute, respectively, the DX-B350P and DX-B450P, are two of Sharp’s fastest printer models to date. Both models provide up to 1200 x 1200 dpi resolution, two standard paper drawers (with the ability to add two more), and include advanced finishing options such as automatic two-sided printing, and offset stacking.
The DX-B350P and DX-B450P include Windows® print drivers that offer a similar look and feel to other devices in Sharp’s lineup, thus improving customer usability and reducing the amount of time needed to train employees. For cross-platform environments, the new printers support both PCL (PCL 5e, PCL 6) and Adobe PostScript 3 with automated emulation switching.
Other features include a 533MHz processor for enhanced image processing power; 128MB RAM that can be expanded to 640MB; a compact footprint that enables it to fit in most business environments; expansion options for demanding document usage, with the ability to accommodate up to 1,800 pages of on-line paper; and dual paper drawers with automatic paper size sensing.
