Sharp unveils new range of colour MFPs

December 14, 2018

Sharp Imaging and Information Company of America (SIICA) has introduced a new line of Advanced and Essentials Series colour document systems for the technology-driven workplace.

The eleven new models include seven that are available now, and four models that will be available in early summer 2019. All the new models offer Sharp’s award-winning, easy-to-use touchscreen display, which is common across 30+ models in Sharp’s multifunction printer line-up, and add exciting new features for conversational AI, cloud integration and security enhancements.

The new MFP Voice feature, powered by Amazon Alexa, enables users to interact with the machine by using simple verbal commands. These new colour models also easily integrate with today’s complex network environments and offer quick access to an expanded list of cloud services that include Box and Dropbox.

Additionally, Adobe Embedded Print Engine technology enables users to direct print PDF files from a variety of sources with greater performance and rendering accuracy. Sharp’s new Application Portal, available in Spring 2019, will allow administrators to easily add new applications and update existing ones right from the touchscreen of the machine. Additionally, the new models are equipped with enhanced productivity features, such as the ability to feed up to 50 envelopes from the standard paper drawer.

The new colour Advanced and Essentials Series also deliver enhanced security features, such as a firmware attack prevention and a self-recovery capability, which can identify a malicious intrusion and restore the machine firmware to its original state. A new whitelisting feature helps protects the machines’ file system from unauthorised access. Additionally, administrators can centrally manage select settings at the device using Active Directory Group Policy.

“This is an exciting time at Sharp, as we roll out a new line of colour workgroup MFPs that offer greater integration, enhanced workflow capability, and voice integration to meet the demands of today’s technology-driven workplace,” said Shane Coffey, Vice President, Product Management, Sharp Imaging and Information Company of America. “Our focus continues to be to provide quality MFPs that deliver superior productivity, performance and ease-of-use. We’re proud to continue that tradition with this new line-up of colour Advanced and Essentials series models.”
