Xerox announced four new office products this week, featuring advances in color accuracy and reduced output of greenhouse gases.
The Phaser 7500 color laser printer’s “Color By Words” feature lets users alter the colors in an image before printing it. Users select from a drop-down list of words, such as “red apple,” “blue sky,” or “green grass,” and the copier fine-tunes the color according to the user’s specifications, adjusting a sapphire blue to a lighter blue for the “blue sky” adjustment, for example. The copier also features Pantone-approved color tables and 1200 by 1200 dpi resolution, Xerox said.
The company also announced three new releases in its WorkCentre product line.
- The WorkCentre 6400 color multifunction printer offers faxing, scanning, printing and copying functionality, 32 ppm color and 37 ppm black and white copying, Xerox said.
- The WorkCentre 7400 color multifunction series uses Xerox’s Emulsion Aggregate High Gloss toner, which produces smaller toner particles to create sharper image quality, the company said. The 7400 also consumes less than 2 watts of power at sleep mode and incorporates biomass plastic, which produces 16 percent fewer carbon dioxide emissions during manufacturing.
- The WorkCentre 4250 black-and-white MFP increase security through network authentication and hard-disk overwrite, Xerox said.
All of the products are Energy Star qualified and part of Xerox’s Green World Alliance, an initiative that encourages customers to recycle supplies.
The Phaser 7500 sells for $2999; the WorkCentre 6400 color MFP sells for $4299; the WorkCentre 7400 MFP starts at $11,995; and the WorkCentre 4250 MFP sells for $2199.
