Sharp Now Shipping First 80-ppm Digital Document System For High-Performance Business and Networked Use

Sharp Electronics Corporation announced that it is now shipping the AR-800 Digital IMAGER(TM), its first-ever 80 page-per-minute (ppm) digital "workhorse" multifunction machine and an ideal solution for busy networked office environments.


The AR-800 is the latest product from Sharp's Digital IMAGER series of monochrome and color copier/printers. It provides both the advantages of digital technology and meets the high-volume copy/printing requirements of business. In addition, its "plug and play" capability integrates with networked systems, providing the connectivity that information technology professionals increasingly look for. With an optional embedded print controller, the AR-800 can also serve as a powerful workgroup printer, able to seamlessly connect to workstations across multiple network operating systems and protocols.


The AR-800 is currently available through Sharp's authorized dealers. Sharp dealers provide business and government customers with a full line of Sharp products, service and support throughout the U.S.
