TORONTO, ON, May 6, 2011 – The innovative technology inside Xerox Corporation's (NYSE: XRX) first high-speed solid ink multifunction printers (MFPs) gave thousands of businesses around the world a hassle-free, low-cost way to print in colour every day. Three new MFPs built on the award-winning ColorQube® platform save customers money with faster print speeds and simple-to-use features that make work easier.

Companies can cut colour print costs in half with the Hybrid Color Pricing Plans available on the Xerox ColorQube 9300 Series – paying only for the amount of colour on a given page. This is an important differentiation when using just a little bit of colour, such as a company logo on letterhead.
“The Xerox ColorQube 9200 Series broke new ground in office colour printing by turning the cost equation on its head. It gave companies an affordable way to use colour every day – something they have requested for years,” said Robert Palmer, director, InfoTrends Digital Peripherals Consulting Service. “The new Xerox ColorQube MFPs deliver the cost savings businesses have come to expect from solid ink technology.”
The cartridge-free MFPs print and copy at speeds up to 55 pages per minute (ppm) in colour, 60 ppm in black and white, and scan as fast as 60 impressions per minute in colour.
Other benefits of the ColorQube 9300 Series include:

  • Colour that gets noticed – Solid ink produces consistent colour prints, regardless of media type, with intuitive features like Color by Words, a colour-editing tool that allows for accurate and vibrant colours from the first print.
  • Walk-up convenience – Employees can easily print from and scan to a memory stick or thumb drive via the USB port located on the side of the MFP.
  • Built-in security – Image overwrite electronically “shreds” data on the MFP’s hard drive while 256-bit encryption protects information flowing through the device.  Network authentication prohibits unauthorized access by validating user names and passwords.
  • Lower environmental impact – The ColorQube 9300 Series is ENERGY STAR® qualified and generates up to 90 percent less consumable and packaging waste than comparable laser devices. It includes only one replaceable component – a cleaning unit with an average life of 330,000 prints – that can be recycled through the Xerox Green World Alliance program. The ColorQube 9300 has been submitted to the Canadian Environmental Choice Program for EcoLogo certification. The certification process is expected to be complete within four-to-six weeks.
Additional productivity options include simple mobile printing. On-the-go workers can print securely from any email-enabled smartphone, tablet or laptop without downloading an application, loading software or searching for online printer information.
The ColorQube 9300 Series starts at $22,138. Order taking begins immediately in Canada. All systems are offered through Xerox direct sales, resellers and agents.
