Ricoh Announces New Digital Color MFP Series

MALVERN, Pa., Dec. 5, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — Ricoh USA, Inc. today announced a new digital color multifunction printer (MFP) series that feature enhanced usability and boosts productivity for high-volume environments. The ENERGY STAR® certified RICOH MP C6503 and RICOH MP C8003 color MFPs are Ricoh’s high-speed solutions for larger office workgroups, printing documents in vibrant color or sharp black-and-white at speeds up to 80 pages per minute (ppm). Packaged with Ricoh’s latest Smart Operation Panel technology, these new systems facilitate better collaboration across all types of locations and work styles.

Ricoh’s Workstyle Innovation Technology, the next generation of office automation, helps to streamline the flow of information throughout organizations.

Added to this next level of innovation is superior 1200 x 4800 image quality, 3″ full bleed and a variety of finishing options that make this series ideal for reproducing high quality professional looking output in-house, such as those produced by marketing and design firms.

“Today, businesses need technology to be more intelligent and must be assured it can sustain high-volume work environments,” said John Brophy, Vice President, Product Marketing, Ricoh USA, Inc. “The need for accuracy extends beyond getting data points right. It means making sure marketing collateral and other high-resolution documents get to your team with as much precision and vibrancy of the original vision. The RICOH MP C6503 and RICOH MP C8003 preserve and drive that kind of image quality, while leveraging its Smart Operation Panel to make the act of sharing and collaborating more productive and intuitive.”

The RICOH MP C6503 and RICOH MP C8003 accomplish much while demanding little energy. A major part of what earned this series its ENERGY STAR certification is its integrated motion sensor, which detects approaching users and activates key control panel operations, allowing users to start multitasking immediately. These high-powered collaboration hubs also utilize Ricoh’s Smart Device Connector app, another component of Workstyle Innovation Technology, which enables seamless integration with mobile devices to facilitate sharing information between other Ricoh devices, such as Interactive Whiteboards and projectors.
