New Samsung Xpress C430 and C480 Color Desktop Models Feature Native Scan-to-eMail, NFC Mobile Printing
Samsung Electronics today rolled out its latest A4 (print and scan on up to 8.5″x14″) color desktop laser printers and MFPs in South Korea, the Xpress C430 and C480 color printers and MFPs, which consist of the C430/430W single-function color printers; the C480/480W MFPs that print, copy, and scan; and the C480FN/C480FW “4-in-1” MFPs with added fax.
Key features of the Xpress C430 and C480 series, which are designed for small- and home-office users, include:
- Easy Installation – Initial printer installation is simplified for users that don’t have an IT administrator with the Samsung Printer Software Installer, which installs the print driver wirelessly without the need for downloading software via a USB or CD drive.
- Scan-to-Email and Mobile Printing – The scan-to-email function, previously available only on higher-end Samsung printers, is now a native feature of the C430/C480 series.
- Mobile printing is also provided via NFC (Near Field Communication) and cloud printing. Users can print, scan, and fax by tapping their NFC-enabled mobile devices on the printer, or by using the Samsung Mobile Print app. With the Mobile Print app, they can also save scanned documents directly to their smartphone. The new models are also compatible with cloud printing services such as Samsung Cloud Print.
- The printers in the Xpress C430 and C480 line-up run on 400 MHz and 800 MHz core processors, respectively, and can print at up to 18 (black-and-white)/4 (color) ppm. The Xpress C430/C480 series also support an enhanced resolution of up to 2,400 x 600 dpi, and use Samsung’s rendering engine technology for sharper text and image clarity.
- Eco-friendly features include Samsung’s One Touch Eco Button and Easy Eco Driver. With these features, users can change the print settings on a document-by-document basis, for instance by “un-bolding” bold text, or by printing only the text in a document that contains both text and images.
Further specifications and pricing are not available at this time.
Samsung’s David SW Song, senior vice president of strategy marketing and sales for Samsung’s Printing Solutions group, said the new printers and MFPs indicate Samsung’s commitment to the small- and home-office user-market, which it says make up about 70 percent of all users.
