New Lexmark colour printer and MFPs bring high performance

New Lexmark colour printer and MFPs bring high performance and productivity to workgroups

New devices offer enhanced functionality through high-quality colour output, intelligent software solutions, state-of-the-art security

Auckland, 17 August 2011 - Lexmark Australia and New Zealand has announced a number of new smart devices aimed at increasing productivity for heavy-usage workgroups and departments in mid-sized businesses and large enterprises. Highlighted by a cutting-edge user interface and time-saving features, the solutions-enabled devices enhance Lexmark's award-winning colour product lineup and strengthen its position in a key market segment - colour workgroup products.

Capable of printing media sizes up to 12.6 inches x 48 inches, the Lexmark X950de and X954de colour Multifunction Printer (MFP) Series and Lexmark C950de colour printer are ideal for workgroups who require specialty printing, such as A3-sized (11-inch x 17-inch) media, high-volume jobs and advanced finishing. Both product families also offer productivity solutions that help streamline workflow and reduce unnecessary printing, all while ensuring customer data, devices and networks are protected with advanced, multi-layered security features. Authentication, authorisation, audit logging and hard disk wiping* are each offered as standard, out-of-the-box capabilities and do not require the purchase of additional data security kits.

The addition of these products provides a strong complement to Lexmark's industry-leading portfolio of A4 workgroup printers and MFPs, so customers who maintain a mixed fleet of Lexmark devices will have a consistent user experience. Lexmark's smart devices leverage an intuitive e-Task interface and powerful solutions platform, enabling users to view, select and print specific pages within a document directly from the touch screen.

X950 and X954 Colour MFP Series

The dynamic Lexmark X950 and X954 colour MFP Series will accelerate the productivity of workgroups and departments that need high performance and flexible output options. Further, these feature-rich MFPs deliver outstanding colour output and support a wide range of media and finishing options, allowing businesses to produce their professional-quality marketing collateral in-house to save valuable time and money. Named Colour Replacement, offered standard on the new MFPs, is designed for the many businesses that require precise colour matching when producing branded materials. Print jobs that might otherwise be outsourced can now be done internally with colour output that meets the highest standard of accuracy.

The easy-to-navigate, 10.2-inch colour interface serves as a launching pad to a number of productivity-enhancing solutions and offers interactive sensory features, such as audible and tactile feedback to provide an enhanced user experience.

C950de Colour Printer

Lexmark's C950de colour printer is equipped with many of the same features as Lexmark’s new colour MFPs, offering workgroups brilliant colour printing, A3 functionality and easy-to-use workflow solutions, accessible via the 4.3-inch colour touch screen. The intuitive interface, which features leading-edge display design and interaction, closely resembles a smartphone and provides a rich,informative experience for users. Instead of simple beeps and tones, contextual sound delivers high-fidelity, differentiated tones from the touch screen, making it easier to distinguish between specific alerts and touch commands.

"The new products announced today, along with our other award-winning colour offerings, are notable additions to an extremely broad and high-performing printer and MFP product line and will help to ensure our competitiveness in the colour workgroup printing market," said Marty Canning, Lexmark executive vice president and president of Imaging Solutions and Services. "We are making Lexmark's powerful solutions platform more accessible to our customers – both large enterprise and SMBs – across a broader range of products than ever before."
