MAHWAH, NJ, July 18, 2013 – Sharp Imaging and Information Company of America (SIICA), a division of Sharp Electronics Corporation, introduced the new MX-4140N, MX-4141N, MX-5140N and MX-5141N color workgroup document systems offering speeds of 41ppm and 51ppm. These enhanced performance models offer new features, such as true Adobe® PostScript® printing, Compact PDF color scanning and wireless networking. These models will also offer Sharp Cloud Portal Office, a new cloud storage service that enables businesses to collaborate and share documents and resources seamlessly throughout their organization. For color critical environments, the MX-4140N, MX-4141N, MX-5140N and MX-5141N will also offer standard PANTONE® Licensing for businesses that utilize the PANTONE Matching System.
“These new mid-volume workgroup models are designed around today’s busy office environments, offering powerful multitasking features, off-premises cloud support, mobile device access and more,” said Mike Marusic, Senior Vice President, Marketing and Business Solutions Group, Sharp Imaging and Information Company of America. “Tablet-style menu navigation, combined with a built-in retractable keyboard and Internet browsing ability, enables these MFPs to be both high functioning and an added value. The standard Compact PDF feature on the MX-4141N and MX-5141N models is able to reduce the scanned file size of color documents by as much as 75 percent, resulting in decreased network traffic and more efficient use of disk and cloud storage.”
The MX-4140N, MX-4141N, MX-5140N and MX-5141N models support the Sharp OSA® 4.1 development platform, offering powerful document workflow capabilities to help businesses leverage their network infrastructure, as well as off-premises cloud services. All four models include Sharp OSA modules for application communication and external accountingapplications. The standard End-of-Lease feature can overwrite all document and user data, which helps protect business and personal information at time of trade in.
These new models also feature Sharp’s 2nd generation high-resolution, touch-screen display, offering easy-to-use tablet-style menu navigation and multi-touch pinch & zoom image preview. The available built-in Web browser (standard on the MX-5141N) provides access to web pages for walk-up access to Internet resources.
Convenience and Productivity Features
Sharp’s built-in wireless networking, in conjunction with the free Sharpdesk® Mobile app, offers convenient printing and scanning for guest users, without having to access the company’s corporate network. The MFP’s “Point-to-Point” mode establishes a direct wireless connection to mobile devices, which is isolated from the wired LAN. The new models also support an Infrastructure mode for wireless communication on a customer’s wireless network.
The MX-4140N, MX-4141N, MX-5140N and MX-5141N offer a new 2,000-sheet tandem paper drawer enabling a total on-line paper capacity of up to 6,600 sheets for enhanced productivity.
