Lexmark International’s new A4 700 and 800 series of colour laser printers and smart multi-function printers (MFPs) are now available from official South African distributor, Drive Control Corporation (DCC).
The new A4 colour laser products include the Lexmark CS720, CS725 (CS700 range) and CS820 (CS800 range) printers while A4 smart MFP series comprise the CX725 (CX700 range), CX820, CX825, CX860 (CX800 range) models.
All these devices meet the demand of this fast-growing segment of the print and imaging industry which according to the Worldwide Hardcopy Peripherals Format Forecast, Q3 2015 continues to represent a very strong segment for worldwide MFP activity.
The new MFPs are driven by a powerful quad core processor which allows for fast print and copy speeds. The flagship CX860 offers industry-best high toner capacity, large input/output capacity and flexible media support.
Additionally, the entire new A4 series features a new tablet-like touchscreen interface and flexible media handling – these products are easy to use, require minimal training and will easily allow for the integration of business process solutions.
