Ricoh India has launched two new models of colour multifunction printers (MFPs) – the Ricoh C2004SP and C2504SP. Powered by Workstyle Innovation Technology, the MFPs “redefine the way users print and share information in a modern work environment,” said the OEM. A new sound-reducing design that incorporates an anti-vibration system and noise-absorbing materials, makes for much quieter operation. Businesses can customize their work through iconic automated shortcuts, user-specific security controls and fingertip access to critical information that help drive productivity. This is combined with banner printing capabilities for high-quality output and a new Intel processor to help productivity and speed up jobs.

With Ricoh’s various device and document management software and solutions such as Card Authentication, Cloud Connectivity and Remote Monitoring, these devices can fit into any workflow, existing or new, the company added. Delivering up to 25 colour pages per minute with finishing options, these devices also feature new Human Detection Sensor Technology that detects approaching users and activates key operations for immediate use. Once triggered, the device can recover from sleep mode in less than one second, boosting productivity and reducing environmental impact.

One more notable component of Workstyle Innovation Technology is the new 10.1-inch-wide Android-powered Super VGA Smart Operation Panel that allows users to create one-touch shortcuts for mundane tasks, pin informational widgets and have quick access to important work. The intuitive grid design of the touchscreen offers a wide range of embedded Apps that simplifies the most complex of workflows. This streamlined interface relies on actions already familiar to smartphone and tablet users, leveraging pinching, flicking and swiping gestures.

To meet print requirements with speed and accuracy, the Ricoh Smart Device Connector facilitates quick access to MFPs by registering it with any smart device via NFC, Bluetooth, a QR code, or the IP address of an MFP. In addition, the devices can be equipped with a variety of security features – including Card Authentication Control, Data Encryption and Data Overwrite Capability – that allows information to move in a more swift and more secure way.
