INDUSTRYBy BiztechAfrica - Oct. 18, 2012, 10:46 a.m.
Drive Control Corporation (DCC) is distributing the recently launched HP LaserJet Enterprise 500 series; multifunctional printers (MFPs) geared for mid-sized to large businesses. These devices not only print, scan, copy and fax, but also feature an 8-inch colour touch screen and wireless colour printing capabilities to suit every business need.
The HP LaserJet Enterprise 500 series includes the M525 mono version and the M575, which is the colour model. In addition to the 8-inch colour touch screen which enables easy navigation and document edits, these models also include the ePrint function, which allows users to print from virtually anywhere, provided there is an internet connection. The AirPrint feature also enables users to print directly from mobile devices, and an accessible USB port allows direct printing and saving.
“With wireless printing capabilities and a small carbon footprint, these MFPs make the ideal business tool for any mid-sized to large business that values both technological efficiency and the impact they have on the environment. The colour technology that HP has built into the M575 series results in a constant high quality of professional colour prints,” says Caron de Fortier, HP Image & Printing Group Business Unit Manager at DCC
The Pantone certification on the M575 MFP means that marketing, design, cosmetic and architectural companies can achieve the exact colour their brand requires, in a printed format. Additional features include HP’s EasyColour and Universal Print Driver, which automatically detects images within documents and adjusts the colour rendering to optimise quality.
This intuitive printer, with its enhanced functionality and flexibility has been well received by the SA and Africa markets, says De Fortier.
