MISSISSAUGA, ON, July 19th, 2022 – Sharp Electronics of Canada Ltd. (SECL), a subsidiary of Sharp Corporation, today announced the all-new BP Advanced and Essentials Multifunctional Printer Series. The series fits today's diverse work styles and utilizes the latest technology to help users get work done with greater efficiency. The elegant cabinet design with easy-roll casters, soft-close paper drawers and the contemporary colour scheme makes this series a perfect fit for any office environment.
Six new colour models, ranging in speeds of 26-45 pages per minute, are the first in a new series comprising a total of 16 colour and monochrome models that will be rolled out over the coming months. These models offer intelligent features and connectivity that enable office workers to collaborate with colleagues seamlessly and securely, even when they are working remotely.
Enhanced cloud service connectivity, such as with Microsoft Teams, make it easy to streamline communication and native Microsoft Universal Print capability facilitate integration with Microsoft 365 environments that leverage simplified print management. Innovative features such as multi-feed scan detection and enhanced auto skew correction, help ensure jobs come out right the first time, every time. Users can scan documents at up to 280 images-per-minute with the 300-sheet duplexing single pass feeder on Advanced Series models. The new inner folding unit offers a variety of fold patterns, including trifold, z-fold and others without taking up any extra floor space.
Leading security technology is also built into the new Advanced and Essentials Series to help organizations protect their data. Features, such as system integrity check at startup, firmware attack prevention with self-recovery, as well as optional Bitdefender® antivirus (coming soon) will help provide protection from hackers and malicious intruders.
