Sharp to Introduce Three New Digital Full-Color MFPs

Large 10.1-inch Color Touchscreen LCD in a Lightweight, Compact Body;
Enhanced Integrated Solution Performance for Improved Office Productivity

Press Releases

Sharp Corporation will introduce into the Japanese market three new digital full-color MFP models. The MX-2610FN, MX-3110FN, and MX-3610FN all feature a large 10.1-inch touchscreen color LCD in a lightweight, compact body.

These models are equipped with a large 10.1-inch touchscreen color LCD and an easily mastered user interface that supports intuitive finger flick operation. Scanned documents are displayed on the LCD screen, enabling users to use finger touches to easily perform operations such as confirming document content, changing page order, and deleting pages, leading to fewer unintended printing mistakes. In addition, functions to improve efficiency of office work have also been expanded and improved, including direct access to the Internet from the control panel without using a PC, and being able to print web pages*1 displayed on the large color LCD screen.

Further, these models deliver high environmental performance thanks to an eco-learning feature as well as by reducing power consumption by approximately 67% compared to predecessor models*2 resulting from a significantly shorter warm-up time and holding down power consumption when on network standby. Additionally, a wide range of solution services is supported to improve efficiency of office operations via connecting with PCs and other devices.

Major Features

1. Intuitive operation via a large, 10.1-inch color touchscreen LCD.
2.   Compact size that is among the smallest and lightest in the industry*3, plus outstanding environmental performance thanks to a low-power-consumption design.
3. Support for Sharp OSA®*4 that provides enhanced connectivity with MFPs and applications, and for Sharp’s cloud-based solution services (to be available after the spring of 2011*5).
*1 Requires optional MX-AM10 Web Browsing Expansion Kit.
*2 Comparison is between MX-3110FN and its predecessor (MX-3100FN introduced in 2008). Comparison using TEC values (amount of energy consumed in one week), a standard developed under the International ENERGY STAR® Program.
*3 As of November 22, 2010, for A3-size color MFPs rated at speeds from 21 ppm to 40 ppm. “Smallest” is based on a comparison of footprint area (width by depth); “lightest” is compared to models with 4-tray paper drawer configurations (based on Sharp research).
*4 Sharp OSA is optional.
*5 Details to be announced at a later date.
