Sharp to Preview New Printer/MFP with Beefed-Up Security
Sharp Imaging and Information Company of America (SIICA) reported today that it will showcase a new printer with enhanced security, with an eye in particular for use in healthcare environments, at the 2019 Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) Annual Conference and Exhibition that will be held in Orlando, Florida, February 11 – 15.
During the event, Sharp will also collaborate and exhibit with long-standing Sharp Partner Program member RF IDeas.
Together, Sharp and RF IDeas will present a complete solution that enables users to authenticate at any Sharp multifunction printer (MFP) by swiping their ID badges, which provides access to the print/scan/copy capability, and the network resources and shared folders they are authorized to access.
Sharp will also showcase how it can use its innovative products, services and technology features to help address the challenges of modern healthcare providers. Sharp will demonstrate technologies that better enable HIPAA compliance, leading-edge security, AI technology, and high-resolution 4K Ultra HD touch displays.
New Sharp MX-C304W Color Desktop MFP
Sharp will also preview its new MX-C304W Color Desktop MFP to demonstrate the latest in security and AI technology. It says the MX-C304W ‘s leading-edge security features provide strong protection for customer data and personal information. Healthcare-specific features include firmware attack prevention and a self-recovery capability, which can identify a malicious intrusion and restore the machine firmware to its original state. These are further enhanced when paired with the Secure Print Release feature available through Sharp and its Partner Program.
The MX-C304W also features Voice feature with Amazon Alexa, enabling users to interact with the printer by using simple verbal commands.
4K AQUOS Board
Sharp will also showcase its 4K Ultra HD 70″ Class (69.5″ diagonal) AQUOS BOARD interactive display system. Launched last year, the display uses Sharp’s original capacitive touch technology to provide highly accurate touchscreen operation.
Because of its extremely precise and smooth operation, Sharp says the PN-L705H interactive display facilitates interactivity in virtually any environment and in various orientations—landscape, portrait, face up and tilted backwards. Sharp says the PN-L705H interactive display also provides a more natural touch experience due to the incorporation of its direct bonding technology, which helps to minimize parallax errors and reduce reflection and refraction of light. In the medical field, specifically, it can be applied for medical training by allowing instructors to enlarge images for students to provide a close-up look at intricate details that would normally not be visible to the human eye.
Finally, Sharp will be highlighting its certifications and compatibility with leading healthcare EHR (electronic health record) providers, such as Cerner Millennium, McKesson STAR 200, Epic, and MEDITECH MAGIC OS. Certification helps to guarantee the interoperability of Sharp printers and MFPs with leading EHR systems.
“We’re excited to return to HIMSS for a sixth consecutive year alongside RF IDeas, our long-standing Sharp Partner Program Member,” commented Shane Coffey, vice president of Product Management, Sharp Imaging and Information Company of America. “The annual conference provides a unique opportunity for Sharp to illustrate how our leading-edge technology can make a lasting impact on the healthcare community by meeting its needs both now and well into the future.”
