Sharp Advanced Series MX-WC04W equipped with optional paper sources.

Sharp Imaging and Information Company of America today introduced two new A4 desktop color multifunction printers that it says provide strong workflow capabilities and leading-edge security features, all in a compact design.

The new Advanced Series MX-C304W and Essentials Series MX-C303W provide standard copy, print, scan, and fax, as well as wireless networking for easy access from mobile devices.

The new models incorporate Sharp’s 7″ color touchscreen, and feature voice command capability via  Amazon Alexa, which enables users to interact with the printers by using simple verbal commands. For instance, via voice command, users can request the MFP to make a copy or scan a document to themselves, and can also change optional settings such as quantity, color/monochrome, simplex/duplex, staple finishing, and more. Sharp launched its first voice-driven MFPs last December (see Sharp Launches First Voice-Driven Copier/MFPs).

They new models also feature cloud connectivity, enabling users, for instance, to access and print their documents stored in their accounts at Box.com and Dropbox.com, for example.

Sharp also says that an Adobe Embedded Print Engine technology enables users to direct print PDF files from a variety of sources with greater performance and rendering accuracy. Sharp’s new Application Portal, available in this spring, will also allow administrators to add new applications and update existing ones from the MFP’s touchscreen.
