Sharp Launches New Line of Mid-High-Volume Monochrome MFPs

Sharp Imaging and Information Company of America (SIICA) has launched a new family of six mid-high-volume monochrome MFPs offered in two distinct varieties, the Advanced Series and Essentials Series.

The new Advanced Series document systems represent Sharp's newest technology and are designed for customers with demanding workflow environments that need superior performance. The MX-M365N, MX-M465N and MX-M565N models offer speeds of 36 pages per minute (ppm), 46 ppm and 56 ppm, respectively.

These new MFPs refine the user experience with Sharp's 10-inch, tablet-style touch screen and other innovative features that include an integrated retractable keyboard, wireless networking, true Adobe PostScript 3 and available high-capacity paper handling for longer uptime. The Advanced Series also provides access to Sharp Cloud Portal Office, a revolutionary new cloud storage service enabling businesses to collaborate seamlessly with Sharp document systems and other collaborative devices such as Sharp's AQUOS BOARD Interactive Display Systems, as well as with the latest smartphones and tablets (available Q1 2014).

The new Essentials Series document systems are designed for cost-conscious customers, offering features common to competitive models in this class. The MX-M364N, MX-M464N and MX-M564N provide full multifunction capability (copying, network printing and network scanning) at speeds of 36 ppm, 46 ppm and 56 ppm, respectively.

"This new family of monochrome MFP products have been designed to support today's busy office environments, offering high productivity, powerful multitasking, off-premises cloud support and more," said Mike Marusic, senior vice president of marketing and the Business Solutions Group, SIICA. "Offering both an Advanced Series and an Essentials Series allows Sharp dealers greater flexibility in balancing their customers' business needs within their budget requirements."

Sharp's built-in wireless networking on the Sharp Advanced Series, 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 "Point-to-Point" mode establishes a direct wireless connection to mobile devices, which is isolated from the wired LAN.

Both the Sharp Advanced Series and Essentials Series offer a range of paper handling and finishing options to accommodate virtually any size office environment.

Sharp's standard End-of-Lease feature can overwrite all document and user data, which helps protect business and personal information at time of trade in.

The new MX-M365N, MX-M465N and MX-M565N Advanced Series and the MX-M364N, MX-M464N and MX-M564N Essentials Series monochrome document systems are available now.
