TORONTO, ON - Xerox Canada today introduced its most affordable black-and-white multifunction printer, starting at $479 and designed for small businesses.

The Xerox Phaser 3200MFP packs print, copy, fax and colour-scanning features into a compact device that is inexpensive and easy to use.

"Small businesses today demand technology that is robust enough for a large network but with a reduced footprint and affordable price," says Ajay Dhingra, vice president, Canadian Reseller Operations, Xerox Canada. "For about the same price as a stand-alone printer, the Phaser 3200MFP offers the tools workers need to be productive in an exceptionally compact package."

The Phaser 3200MFP packages high image quality, speed and scanning versatility with heightened security and environmentally friendly features. It has true 1200 dpi resolution for crisp text and fine detail. With 64MB of memory, a 300MHz processor and print and copy speeds up to 24 pages per minute, the multifunction printer is one of the fastest in its class. With 4MB of fax memory and a monthly duty cycle of 10,000 prints, the Phaser 3200MFP can handle higher volumes than the comparably priced Hewlett-Packard LaserJet 3055.

Equipped with Xerox's latest Scan to PC Desktop software, the Phaser 3200MFP scans colour documents at up to 4800 dpi. This scanning software makes it easy to scan documents directly a PC for viewing, editing, storing and sharing. Scans can be made in black and white or in colour and in a variety of file formats, including Microsoft Word and Excel documents and PDF, JPEG and TIFF files.

The Phaser 3200MFP offers enhanced fax features for added security. Secure Fax Receive holds incoming faxes until the user enters a PIN to release them. With Fax Forward to E-mail, incoming faxes are delivered to an e-mail address, keeping the information contained in the faxes private.

For "green-conscious" offices, the Phaser 3200MFP comes with features designed to reduce paper use. PC Fax Send allows users to send faxes directly from their PC, eliminating the need for hard copy faxing. ID Card Copy lets users copy both sides of a document - such as an ID Card, license or an insurance card - onto one side of the page. A useful feature for medical or healthcare organizations that want to reduce the steps involved in creating patient files while reducing paper waste.

The Phaser 3200MFP is Microsoft Vista compatible, ENERGY STAR compliant and part of Xerox's Green World Alliance supplies recycling program. It comes with the Xerox Total Satisfaction Guarantee and is available immediately in North America and Europe through Xerox resellers, distributors, dealers and concessionaires. The Phaser 3200MFP is also available online at www.xerox.com/direct and at 800-ASK-XEROX.
