Tally Makes Assertive Bid For Mainstream Color And Monochrome Laser Printer Markets

Known for rugged, highly-reliable printers, Tally has long provided mission-critical solutions to Fortune 1000 companies and government institutions worldwide. Under the leadership of President, Alan A. Pinsonneault, the Company has now set its sights on the sizeable and highly competitive low and mid range laser markets with a total of nine new offerings: five monochrome printers from 12 to 21 pages per minute and four color models with speeds of 6 PPM (color) and 24 PPM (monochrome). In addition to Tally's reputation for reliability, this lineup has the breadth to address a wide variety of user needs, superior feature sets, and the lowest prices in the industry. "In my experience, I have never had a more competitive line of laser printers," said Pinsonneault. "At every level, these printers provide compelling end-user benefits at price points well below accepted norms," said Pinsonneault.

Xpress T9412 Series: Affordable, High-Quality Laser Printing for Personal and Business Use

The Xpress T9412c, Xpress T9412i and Xpress T9412n laser printers combine 12 pages-per-minute engine speeds and impressive processing power for a time to print first page at less than 14 seconds. With 4MB of RAM standard, these printers offer twice the memory of other products in this class (16MB on the Xpress T9412n network model). They generate outstanding print quality with 1200 DPI resolution and up to 200 levels of gray scale. Paper handling is exceptionally robust with maximum capacities to 1200 sheets. Windows and Mac environments are supported on all models, and PostScript Level 3 comes standard on the T9412n. Ideal for use in the home or office with a small footprint and elegant design, the Xpress T9412 series handle workloads to 15,000 pages per month.

The T8006 and T8306 deliver market-leading price/performance with absolutely no compromises. They offer the best combination of speed, outstanding print quality, ease of use, and low-cost operation for business workgroup printing. At engine speeds of 6 pages per minute (color) and 24 pages per minute (monochrome), these new printers are 50% faster than the market leader in both color and monochrome, but with processing speeds up to twice as fast. Both models accommodate a wide range of media including transparencies, thick stock, envelopes and even T-Shirt transfers. For letter or legal size paper, the T8006 has a maximum input capacity of 750 sheets, while the T8306 prints on up to 13"x19" media with a maximum capacity of 1250 sheets. Auto-duplex printing is optional for both models. Changing consumables is quick, clean and easy with color-coded, snap-in cartridges. In addition to producing exceptional color output, consumables on the T8006 and T8306 deliver a cost per color print of 5.9 cents--the lowest in the industry. The T8006 and T8306 support all network protocols and both Microsoft Windows and Apple Macintosh operating systems.

Model Speed Resolution Interfaces Price
T8006 6/24 PPM 2400x600 DPI Bi-dir Parallel, Ethernet 10/100 $1299
T8306 6/24 PPM 2400x600 DPI Bi-dir Parallel, Ethernet 10/100 $2999

T8106/T8406: Market Leading Price/Performance for Business Workgroups or Graphic Design

The T8106 and T8406 deliver all of the speed, paper handling, print quality, ease-of-use, and low-cost operation of the T8006 and T8306, plus true Adobe PostScript 3 and PCL5c for Windows and Mac environments. A 200MHz processor and co-processor generate complex files at impressive speeds. For graphic design applications, these laser printers provide easy, accurate and consistent color matching with support for ICC profiles and PANTONE colors. With color-control capabilities that meet the needs of the most discerning design professional, and the flexibility of optional automatic two-sided printing, custom paper sizes, and high-capacity paper handling, at very aggressive prices the T8106 and T8406 give users at any level the ability to produce eye-catching, full color announcements, brochures and presentations, more affordably than ever.

T8106 6/24 PPM 1200 DPI Bi-dir Parallel, Ethernet (10/100) $2199
T8406 6/24 PPM 1200 DPI Bi-dir Parallel, Ethernet (10/100) $3699

Lowest Cost of Ownership in the Industry - Without Compromise
Acommon characteristic of any Tally printer is low-cost operation. This benefit--imperative for high volume, mission critical printers--continues with the personal and professional lasers. Monochrome lasers offer a cost per print of 1 cent on the 21 PPM and 1.5cents on the 12 PPM, in some cases less than half that of popular competitive offerings. With a cost per page of 5.9 cents, Tally color lasers save users from 10% to 54% on consumables.

Designed with the End User in Mind
The Company's promise of unparalleled service begins when the user unpacks the printer. Tally color and monochrome lasers are accompanied by an auto-installer CD. This feature automates the setup process and streamlines installation of the printers either as standalones or on networks. Standard warranty is one year, and color models offer on-site warranties.

Tally Network Printer Manager
When configured with an Ethernet 10/100Base-T interface, Tally's color and monochrome laser printers can access the utility, Tally Network Printer Manager. Compatible with the industry standard HP Web JetAdmin and accessible via any web browser, this utility allows remote printer installation, status monitoring, configuration, firmware flash updating and troubleshooting over even the largest intranets. Tally Printer Manager includes e-mail notification of printer errors, printer status and job completion. This utility also features WebPanel, an "on-screen" printer control panel that functions exactly like the one installed on the printer, but is accessible from the user's desktop across the room, or around the world.
