OKI Europe Rolls Out New A3 ‘Smart’ MC800 Color MFP Series


April 15, 2015 – OKI Europe reports that it’s launched new A3 “smart” MFPs with enhanced ease-of-use and functionality. Based on parent company OKI’s LED-printing technology, the new A3 MFPs (print and scan on up to 11″x17″ media) also incorporate OKI’s sXP (smart Extendable Platform), OKI’s embedded open platform for adding optional business and document-management solutions.

The MC800 series, which consists of the MC853 and MC873, are backed by OKI Europe’s three-year extended warranty, and are being marketed as more compact and less-expensive versions of more costly and complex competitive copier-based devices, and are designed for small to mid-size businesses, as well as departments within larger organisations.

Print speeds is up to 35 ppm, while scan speeds is up to 50 ppm. All models support Google Cloud Print and Apple AirPrint for mobile printing. The MFPs are also bundled with ABBYY FineReader Sprint OCR (optical character recognition) software, a downloadable PC/Mac desktop application that enables users to convert paper documents, as well as PDF files and images, into editable and searchable text into 190 different languages.

The MC853 and MC873 also feature SENDYS Explorer LITE, a server-based software available to OKI smart MFP customers at no additional cost. It enables users to capture documents from various sources and convert, distribute, or upload them to a chosen location, providing greater flexibility to edit, access, print, retrieve, and share files. A for-pay premium version is also available.

The MFPs are also integrated circuit (IC) smart-card reader-ready for user management, secure printing, and managing print jobs. Standard functions include print, copy, scan, and fax.
