Lexmark International has announced the launch of the Genesis, a new web-enabled all-in-one printer which it calls “the industry’s first inkjet AIO to deliver speed, style, and Smartsolutions”.
Building on the company’s previous web printers, the new device features an unusual upright design and a range of features using the company’s most advanced technology.
The Genesis is wifi enabled and will allow for cloud-based applications including Stamps.com and Evernote and Lexmark’s new Facebook and Twitter apps.
It is reported to have a black print resolution of up to 2400 X 1200 dpi, and a colour resolution of 4800 x 1200 dpi. The maximum print speed for black is 33 ppm, while colour is 30 ppm.
Lexmark also says the printer uses its Vizix technology, which uses separate ink cartridges “to enable greater speed and produces high quality print output at an economical replacement cost for customers”.
The device also uses Flash Scan technology, which Lexmark says can print in as little as three seconds, and uses a digital camera to let users preview scans before printing.
Paul Rooke, Lexmark Executive Vice President and President of the Imaging Solutions Division, said: "From its unique, sleek upright design to the broad range of SmartSolutions, the Lexmark Genesis is truly an innovative, one-of-a-kind product in today's AIO market.
"Most importantly, after a quick and easy setup, busy professionals will immediately experience its time-saving instant preview, quick copies and unmatched speed when scanning content to the cloud."
The Genesis will be available early next year in the US and Canada at around $399.
