Expanded colour range
OKI Europe has expanded its product range with new A3 colour MFPs designed for corporate businesses with large print volumes, tight deadlines and a requirement for high quality, 1200 x 1200 dpi output. Ideal for producing reports, white papers and booklets as part of the day-to-day workflow, the ES94x6 MFP Series features a 9-inch, tablet-style, customisable touch screen and full finishing capabilities, including an inner finisher and inline multi-staple and saddle stitch finishers. Options include server-less pull printing, embedded OCR and an embedded card reader. The series includes two models, the ES9466 MFP (35ppm) and the ES9476 MFP (50ppm).
In the frame
The Frame from Samsung is a 55-inch Ultra HD TV that can also be used to display artworks from a built-in gallery. Developed in collaboration with Swiss designer Yves Behar, the screen can be customised with a choice of magnetic Frame Bezel surrounds (walnut, beige and white) and comes with a no-gap wall mount for flush mounting. A transparent connection cable pairs the Frame with the One Connect box.
No print server required
ThinPrint has launched a server-less print management solution that migrates print management to the cloud, while enabling secure printing to take place locally, even when the chief product officer at ThinPrint, says that by eliminating the need for on-site infrastructure, ezeep Dash enables companies of all sizes to make significant savings. “As Gmail makes the mail server unnecessary and Salesforce makes the CRM server obsolete, so ezeep Dash means print servers are no longer required,” he said. Administrators can use the cloud portal to define printers and assign employees or groups. Everything else, including the installation of drivers, driver updates and adjustments for changes to IP addresses, are automatically taken care of by ezeep Dash and agents on users’ machines. ezeep Dash costs €0.57 per user, per month.
Versatile POS system
The new HP ElitePOS is a versatile, modular, all-in-one point-of-sale (POS) system that also supports interactive signage, employee attendance and self-service applications like customer check-in. For versatility, the display can be separated from the input/output (I/O) base and expanded with optional accessories such as a receipt printer, magnetic stripe reader or barcode scanner.
You’re so vein
The Fujitsu PalmSecure ID Match is now available from Review Display Systems. The secure identification terminal matches the unique pattern of veins in a user’s hand with a biometric template stored on an individual smart card, thus eliminating the need for a central database. Comprising a 4.3-inch capacitive touch screen, an embedded processor board, a multi-card reader and Fujitsu’s PalmSecure M1E sensor technology, the terminal can be used as a standalone or wall-mounted device or integrated into a POS system.
Epson has launched a new generation of EcoTank printers. Unlike traditional inkjet printers, EcoTank devices have extra-large ink tanks containing up to three years’ worth of ink. They cost more to buy but have very low running costs and require minimal user intervention. For the first time, Epson’s range includes two five-colour models for high quality photo printing. The new generation has a more compact footprint and improved ease of use, with mess-free refills and ink tanks on the front of the device so that you can see ink levels at a glance. Prices start at £249.99.
Printer scrappage scheme
Datatrade has launched a ‘scrappage scheme’ for legacy warehouse printers from Mannesmann Tally and TallyGenicom. Until December 29, 2017, it will offer trade-in payments to businesses that upgrade selected legacy printers to more efficient TallyGenicom 6800 devices. Datatrade managing director Peter Laplanche said: “A bit like the scrappage scheme promoted by the automotive industry to take polluting vehicles off the road, our trade-in programme aims to take out older, ineffectual industrial printers and replace them with more efficient line matrix devices. The latest machines offer a 20% improvement in consumable cost per page when compared with the previous generation line matrix spool ribbon.”
