Toshiba’s new e-STUDIO2500AC color MFP.

On March 16th, Toshiba America Business Solutions introduced five new toner-based, A3 e-STUDIO MFP series. The new MFPs start at $5,339 and will be available via authorized Toshiba dealers this summer. The new lineup includes three color MFP series (13 models) and two monochrome series (10 models).

The MFPs feature a newly engineered feature said to address the print, document-management, and workflow needs of “virtually any business application.” The new software and hardware elements include Intel’s new multi-core Atom processor for handling complex tasks such as embedded optical character recognition (OCR), as well as customizable tablet-style user interface (UI), Embedded Application Platform, and Dual-Scan Document Feeder (DSDF).

The Embedded Application Platform also enables the MFPs to use embedded or third-party applications, and connect to the cloud enabling access for mobile users

Toshiba’s 9-inch tablet-style UI is said to provide a more intuitive user experience, while its latest e-BRIDGE Next controller, working with the UI, enables various document-workflows.

Bill Melo, Toshiba America Business Solutions chief marketing executive, commented: “Our latest e-STUDIO line represents our most innovative and intuitive MFPs to date. Understanding that every industry has unique needs, we integrated state-of-the-art and customizable technology into our new MFP line to meet the complex demands of today’s business users.”

The e-BRIDGE controller’s color-profile tool for the new color MFPs allows for the creation of profiles to adjust color for varying media types, lighting, or to match specific Pantone colors. The DSDF is rated up to 240 images per minute while holding as many as 300 sheets at a time.

Toshiba says the new MFPs also feature a more durable and reliable engine to maximize uptime and reduce total cost of ownership, as well as a new black matte look.

All of the 23 new products are EPEAT Gold-rated for environmental friendliness, and comply with Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) and Energy Star guidelines.
