Toshiba’s Fastest Color MFP, Period
Toshiba’s new e-STUDIO5520c/6520c/6530c series of color MFPs are the fastest and most advanced color product line the company has ever created. Its clean-sheet design takes a radical new approach responding to the needs of today’s high-volume users, multi-user offices and lightweight production environments. The e-STUDIO5520c/6520c/6530c series can print color at the speed of business, with the e-STUDIO5520c producing color documents at 55 pages-per-minute (PPM), and the faster e-STUDIO6520c/6530c capable of 65 color PPM, with a first copy out time of less than seven seconds, providing fast color printing to businesses with moderate output needs. Additionally, the series has exceptional monochrome print speeds of 55, 65 and 75 PPM respectively. Utilizing Toshiba’s leading-edge enhanced laser image technology (e-Fine), these new color MFPs deliver best-in-class color clarity and rich text renditions in all scanning, printing and copying jobs. The entire line supports print resolutions of 1,200 x 1,200 dots-per-inch (dpi) and 10-bit scanning resolutions of 600 x 600 dpi, allowing the e-STUDIO5520c/6520c/6530c series to provide razor sharp text and superior graphic detail in all printed documents.
Unique Toner and Developer Delivery System
Unlike traditional color MFPs on the market, the Toshiba e-STUDIO5520c/6520c/6530c line does not require regularly-scheduled changing or refilling of developer. Thanks to Toshiba’s unique Self-Refresh (SR) Development System, new developer is introduced into the machine through the newly-designed imaging cartridge, virtually eliminating the need to refresh or change the developer for the projected life of the MFPs. And because the developer remains constant, the e-STUDIO5520c/6520c/6530c series delivers the same bright, vibrant color printing and exceptional image quality throughout the PM cycle.
Highly Secure Next Generation e-BRIDGE Controller
Toshiba’s next generation e-BRIDGE controller takes document security to the next level by featuring integrated Advanced Encryption Standard hard disk encryption, IPv6, IPSec, SNMPv3 and 802.1x authentication, protecting the document workflow all the way to the network. The e-STUDIO5520c/6520c/6530c series also includes Encrypted PDF, enabling users to password-protect documents when creating scanned PDFs, to prevent unauthorized viewing or printing. For an additional level of protection, the e-STUDIO5520c/6520c/6530c series’ standard 80GB integrated hard drive can be outfitted with the optional Data Overwrite Kit, ensuring that digital scans saved on the internal hard drive are completely eliminated after the print job is completed.
Intuitive Operation, Easy Access and Versatile Paper Options
The e-STUDIO5520c/6520c/6530c series features a large, adjustable 10.4 Super VGA touch screen for quick and easy access to copying, printing, scanning, faxing and e-filing features. The back-lit, adjustable color screen allows for quick MFP function access with large, easy-to-read icons and simple, step-by-step directions available at the user’s fingertips. The entire color line also allows users to scan directly to, or print directly from a USB flash storage drive in popular office file formats, including PDF, JPEG and Windows Vista XPS. The e-STUDIO5520c/6520c/6530c expands the typical role of an office color MFP beyond the standard paper size, with the ability to support full-color banner printing of sizes as large as 12 inches wide and 47 inches long.
Toner and Paper Replacement Without Workflow Interruption
Toshiba’s new Easily Replaceable Unit (ERU) technology ensures that the e-STUDIO5520c, e-STUDIO6520c and e-STUDIO6530c products stay running at full capacity, even when the products need their consumable supplies refreshed. As part of the series’ new design, the toner and paper cartridges are readily accessible and can be changed or serviced while the unit is in use. The ERU system keeps document workflow at a consistent rate. Coupled with an estimated monthly print duty cycle of 225,000, 250,000 and 275,000 sheets respectively, the entire series provides large corporations and office production managers the peace of mind that, no matter how big or complex the print job, it can be completed without interruption.

Building on its long-standing relationship with Microsoft, the
e-STUDIO5520c/6520c/6530c MFP series provides Windows Vista-specific printing
enhancements in the form of XPS Print Path drivers, Windows Color System support
and Windows Vista WS print and scan support, while remaining 100 percent
backwards-compatible with existing deployments. This XPS format integration
offers full printer functionality and
enables users to print 2007 Microsoft Office system documents directly to the MFP without the wasted overhead of file conversion.
