Tuesday, April 07, 2009

Press release from the issuing company

TRUMBULL, CONN -- Océ, an international leader in digital document management, introduced today the Océ VarioLink 2221/2821 devices. These MFPs incorporate high quality black & white printing, copying, scanning and faxing, as well as extended document handling and finishing in one system. In combination with Océ PRISMA software, users can improve their document workflow and device management throughout the office, which reduces costs while ensuring that employees have the documents they require.

" In today's economic environment, our customers are concentrating on achieving their business goals more efficiently and cost effectively than ever before. The Océ VarioLink 2221 and Océ VarioLink 2821 are productive and affordable additions to the Océ VarioLink line-up that get copy, print and scan jobs done quickly and easily so users can concentrate on their core business," said Thomas O'Neill, Vice President, Product and Strategic Marketing, Océ North America, Document Printing Systems. "With standard functions and features that were once expensive options and through the use of a variety of Océ PRISMA software, these devices handle the document workflow needs of small and medium sized businesses, or workgroups in large enterprises, reliably and efficiently. Their security features help customers manage access and usage to protect confidential information and meet increasing regulatory demands. We are excited to expand the new VarioLink line with these two models."

The Océ VarioLink 2221/2821 devices meet every document need in the office by copying, scanning, printing or faxing from one compact system. The devices allow printing on paper sizes from 4.25" x 8.5" to 11" x 17", from up to five paper trays and a bypass tray. They also provide value-added finishing: saddle stitching, crease fold, two and three-hole punching, multi-position stapling, stacking and mail bin sorting. With these features, all employees will receive the high quality documents they need.

Efficient and reliable
With 1,000 user boxes, up to 320 MB of RAM and an optional 40-GB hard disk, the devices are designed to stand up to the most demanding use. Print speeds of 28 ppm for the Océ VarioLink 2821 MFP and 22 ppm for the Océ VarioLink 2221 MFP and a scan speed of up to 70 originals per minute ensure that employees spend less time producing documents and more time performing their core tasks. The Océ VarioLink 2221/2821 devices are fully equipped with a standard duplex unit, a paper capacity of up to 3,650 sheets and a warm-up time of just 14 seconds to further boost document production.

Easy to use
The Océ VarioLink 2221/2821 devices accommodate people of all skills and abilities. The easy-to-read touchscreen, with its "Enlarge Display" function, reduces the likelihood of costly mistakes. The innovative operator panel tilts to 7, 26 or 43 degrees to accommodate users of all heights. The user-friendly construction also extends to system maintenance. Easy-access doors facilitate toner refilling and easy-grip drawers make paper loading a breeze.

It is easy to keep information safe and secure with the Océ VarioLink 2221/2821 devices. The systems can be set to use SSL, user profiles, secure printing and secure user boxes, so confidential information remains confidential. In addition, there is a hard disk password lock, random hard disk erase, optional hard disk encryption and IP address filtering to ensure that important information is secure.

Sustainable features
The Océ VarioLink 2221/2821 MFPs saves money while reducing the environmental impact. The polymerized toner fuses at a lower temperature, so less toner and energy are used per printed page. Low-power mode, sleep mode, and a 14-second warm-up time save energy. The systems also feature recycled components and internal toner recycling while meeting the toughest environmental standards, including Blue Angel, EPA ENERGY STAR and RoHS.

Device management
Make your workflow more efficient with Océ PRISMAstart Box Operator, a PC-based solution to manage files stored in the user box on the MFP. There is also web connection, a web-based tool that shows you the status and settings of the Océ VarioLink 2221/2821 devices. With these and other Océ PRISMAstart and Océ PRISMAenterprise utilities, users are empowered with easier device operation and better integrated management of your fleet of devices.

The Océ VarioLink 2221/2821 devices are available now from Océ direct sales offices. A variety of acquisition plans are available, including sale, lease or rental. For more information, please visit www.oceusa.com.
