Sharp Imaging and Information Company of America has announced 11 new Advanced and Essentials Series workgroup MFPs, as well as two new Advanced Series desktop MFPs for the technology-driven workplace. All the new models are built using Sharp’s latest controller technology and share Sharp’s award-winning, easy-to-use touchscreen display, common across 30+ models in the lineup. The new models also offer available voice control features, greater cloud integration, leading-edge security and more.
Using the available MFP Voice feature with Amazon Alexa, users can ask the MFP to make copies or scan a document. The new models also integrate with today’s network environments and offer 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 allows administrators to easily add new applications and update existing ones right from the touchscreen of the MFP.
All 13 models deliver security features, such as firmware attack prevention and a self-recovery capability, which can identify a malicious intrusion and restore the machine firmware to its original state. An application whitelisting feature helps protect the machine’s file system from unauthorized access. Additionally, administrators can centrally manage select settings at the device using Active Directory Group Policy.
“We are excited to offer this new lineup of monochrome MFPs that not only offers great features but also delivers consistency throughout the product family,” said Shane Coffey, vice president, Product Management, Sharp Imaging and Information Company of America. “Our focus continues to be about providing quality products that deliver superior productivity and ease-of-use. We’re proud to continue that tradition with this new lineup of monochrome Advanced and Essentials series models.”
