OKI Rolls Out New ‘Smart’ A3 Color MC873 MFP Series with Latest smart Extendable Platform


OKI Data MC873.

April 1, 2015 – OKI Data Americas today rolled out its latest A3 “smart” color MFP, the MC873 series, which provides standard print, copy, scan, and fax, and is available in three different configurations: the desktop MC8473dn, and two floor-standing models, the MC873dnc and MC873dnx. Designed for small to mid-size workgroups, and available through authorized OKI dealers, the MC873dn series prints and scans on up to 11″x17″ media, and are positioned as affordable, more compact alternatives to larger, more-expensive MFPs.

The MFPs use the latest open-API iteration of OKI’s smart Extendable Platform (sXP) to support OKI add-on solutions such as print management, document-capture and document-management solutions, which will be available beginning in the summer of 2015. OKI says this new platform will offer added functionality in order for developers to build unique solution applications for OKI smart MFPs.

The MFPs also qualify for OKI Data’s COREFIDO warranty and recycling program. The COREFIDO program allows consumers to upgrade from a standard one-year warranty to a five-year warranty at no charge, as well as participate in a free recycling program for used OKI toner and image drums from registered devices.

Highlights of the MC873 series, which use OKI’s toner-based LED-printing technology, include:
