ROCHESTER, N.Y., April 6, 2001 -- Xerox Corporation (NYSE: XRX) is bringing high-quality color at unbeatable prices to the home office at Smart*Home, a townhouse "wired" for the future. The home, located near Portland, Ore., is a state-of-the-art showcase that demonstrates leading digital products designed for consumers.
"Smart*Home is a great opportunity to show off our technology designed to provide maximum value and ease of use for consumers, wherever they work," said Jim Miller, president, Xerox SOHO Business Group. "Color is key to Xerox's overall strategy, and our inkjet products deliver faster color inkjet printing, while saving up to 20 percent in ink usage."
The Xerox WorkCentre M950 flatbed multifunction machine is the only office printing product being displayed at Smart*Home for the next year, beginning April 7. The M950 provides users with networkable color inkjet printing, copying, scanning and PC fax capabilities and resulted from Xerox's inkjet alliance with Sharp and Fuji Xerox.
It offers consumers many technological advances including eXpress Mode™, with speeds up to twice as fast as the competition's normal mode, and InkLogic™, an intelligent color ink system with individual ink tanks, which allows users to replace only the color that is empty, eliminating waste.
Smart*Home, a three-story townhouse in the Orenco Station community, is located in the heart of the "Silicon Forest" in Hillsboro, Ore. The project is a joint venture between JP Davis & Co., a producer of press receptions at major technology tradeshows, and PacTrust, one of the Pacific Northwest's largest real-estate developers and investment property owners.
