Once, office printers were seen as one of the greatest inventions of the information age. They are now however, a constant source of frustration for business people. In fact, it seems that printers have been incredibly resistant to the significant advances in usability and responsiveness seen in other types of technology. The annoyance became even greater as professionals are accustomed to various and advanced technology tools for their work, especially personal smart devices, such as smartphones and tablets. Samsung Printing Solutions set out to eliminate this source of office frustration and to drastically improve printer usability, by seamlessly integrating a fully functioning Android™ powered tablet into each new printer.
The marriage of tablets and printers: a game changing solution.
It had to be tablet and it had to Android™. Because, it was important that our new Smart MultiXpress Multifunction printers (MFPs) series offer the same level of user-friendly interface that is intuitive and customizable enough to be equivalent to any other hand-held personal smart devices. The Smart MultiXpress series is first printer to be fully powered by Android™ OS, and provides Samsung’s XOA (eXtensible Open Architecture) platform for scalability, meeting diverse and specialized business needs. This allows limitless printing app scalability and also on-the-go connectivity through the Samsung Cloud Print™, reinforcing both the connectivity and scalability of the range. In addition, printers will help users work around everyday printer errors with simple and clear animated instructions displayed on the 10-inch touch screen without “intuitive” guesswork.
With the increasing use of mobile technologies, more and more office workers feel the need to print from their smartphones and tablets. With Samsung Smart UX center, the 10-inch Android™ OS powered touch screen; Smart MultiXpress MFPs can operate independently without a PC. Businesses can customize their printing experience with web search, quick print, and document preview functions. With an option to add wireless and active NFC capabilities, Smart MultiXpress provides users with the ability to effortlessly print files from an NFC-enabled smartphone using the Samsung Mobile Print App.
More than the tablet
Smart MultiXpress is more than the tablet. In order to actualize the speed, power and seamless printing experience we wanted to create via tablet technology, this required only the highest quality and reliable technology. Thanks to its 1GHz dual-core CPU, Smart MultiXpress delivers 1.5 times faster output speed then previous 1GHz single-core CPU model, enable multiple users to print and scan large documents without disruption. Also, it is built for performance with fast scanning and powerful paper handling, such as Dual Scan Document Feeder (DSDF) allows for double-sided scanning at up to 60 images per minute.
It does not end there. Samsung’s Rendering Engine for Clean Page (ReCP) technology and polymerized toner that empowers the printers to deliver sharp vibrant prints good for business, professional quality level prints at speeds up to 27 ppm for black & white and color. The series have an extended lifespan compared to similar models, a long-life drum and high yield toner perform longer, delivering superior reliability and lower total cost of ownership (TCO). And finally, Samsung’s XOA-Embedded platform makes it possible for solutions developers and businesses to build custom applications to meet a variety of business needs such as enhanced security, more modernity and better efficiency.
Redefining the Printing Experience
“As Samsung continues to strive for user-centered innovation, the introduction of the first Android™ OS-equipped MFPs will enhance Samsung’s smart office experience for business customers,” says Dr. KiHo Kim, Executive Vice President of Printing Solutions at Samsung Electronics. He continues: “Our new printer line combines Samsung’s best in class IT technology and OA device know-how to create more innovative products for the new office automation market.”
We strive to continue providing innovative new printing solutions and disrupt typical notions of printing and printing experience. And that’s why we are dedicated to producing high quality, end-to-end solutions to provide a cost efficient printer experience of unparalleled quality.
Samsung Printing Solutions’ Smart MultiXpress MFPs Series can deliver a seamless printing experience, letting employees print, scan and copy from anywhere to get more done faster, and smarter, without the usual frustration. The emergence of these truly smart machines may finally end the days of office printers that get in the way and usher in an era where printing actually adds to the effectiveness of the people it serves.
