MONTVALE, N.J., Sept. 7, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Sharp Imaging and Information Company of America (SIICA), a division of Sharp Electronics Corporation (SEC) is pleased to announce its participation in PRINT 17, where it will highlight the Sharp MX-6580N and MX-7580N high-speed color document systems with an optional MX-PE12 Fiery® Print Server. The two new additions to Sharp's high-volume color multifunction printer (MFP) lineup are ideal for professional printing and color-critical environments.
The MX-6580N and MX-7580N print 65 and 75 pages per minute, respectively, and are equipped with the latest Sharp OSA® technology. This enables easy integration with network applications and cloud services, including Cloud Connect for popular platforms such as OneDrive®, Google Drive™, and SharePoint® Online. The optional MX-PE12 Fiery Print Server provides unsurpassed job and color management, while working seamlessly in environments requiring more control and precision color output.
"The integration of the MX-PE12 Fiery Print Server into our MFP lineup demonstrates Sharp's commitment to providing the features and options our customers require to achieve the high quality results they have come to expect from Sharp," said Kent Villarreal, Senior Product Manager, Product Planning and Marketing, Sharp Imaging and Information Company of America. "The Fiery Print Server extends Sharp's reach into the light production market, allowing for more print jobs to be brought in-house, saving time and money."
Complementing Sharp's world-class support on the pre- and post-sale side, all Sharp Print Production Managers have earned the Fiery Certified Expert title, the highest level of training attainable through EFI, which provides direct access to EFI support engineers and helps to guarantee the best possible support to Sharp's customers. This training and support is critical for light production and Fiery-connected environments, where productivity and up-time matter most. During PRINT 17, attendees can stop by the Sharp exhibit to speak with a Sharp Print Production Manager, where they will be answering questions and providing demos on the newest products.
For those customers not requiring a Fiery print server, the MX-6580N and MX-7580N standard print controllers now include Pantone Licensing as part of Sharp's continued focus on color matching. These models add to the long list of MFPs offered from Sharp that are Pantone licensed. Through PANTONE® Color Matching, Sharp MFPs are easily able to reproduce colors from the PANTONE Coated Series of colors without the expense or required expertise that sometimes comes with optional software or hardware. There are now a total of 14 current Sharp color models with this capability, including the new models.
Users will also benefit from the mobile printing capabilities the MX-6580N and MX-7580N have to offer. Mobile scanning is available via Sharpdesk Mobile, and connectivity is available via mobile printing supported platforms such as Apple® AirPrint®, Google® Cloud Print™, and native Android™ printing. A no cost server-less print release option allows users to release a job from another capable Sharp MFP without needing a server or extra software.
Sharp is exhibiting at PRINT 17 in the Formax booth #3625, September 10-14, in Chicago, Illinois.
