Toshiba e-STUDIO 45 Network Printing & Document Finishing Capabilities Cited in Study
Press release from the issuing company
Irvine, California (May 1, 2001) The Toshiba e-STUDIO45 multifunction copier-printer-fax-scanner has received "Four Stars" from one of the leading digital copier/printer independent research labs, Business Equipment Research and Test Lab (BERTL), which gave the new product its "Highly Recommended," designation based on its network printing and document finishing capabilities.
The e-STUDIO brand is Toshiba's next generation of digital document solutions, featuring expandable open architecture and powerful features that improve workflow and save time. The 45 page per minute (ppm) e-STUDIO45 copier can be upgraded to provide printing from any desktop on the network, as well as the ability to fax and scan documents.
"BERTL has such a fine reputation in the industry for analyzing digital document imaging systems that we were honored to be placed in the ÔHighly Recommended' category for our e-STUDIO45 digital multifunctional system," said Mark Mathews, Vice President of Marketing for Toshiba America Business Solutions, Inc. (TABS).
The March 15, 2001 issue of the BERTL Digital Times reported that the "Highly Recommended" rating was bestowed on the e-STUDIO45 because it features "one of the best print drivers tested at this level," and "more finishing/document building capabilities than most competing drivers." BERTL also remarked on its "above average finishing capabilities with no slow down when hole punching or stapling." Other e-STUDIO45 features that were noted were the easy to use touch screen, network management system, flexible network scanning and send-to-email capabilities and the Internet Fax option.
"Because of its compact size, the e-STUDIO45 is ideal for small and medium-sized workgroups that have space-limited environments. These machines feature a more compact, square-shaped footprint, so they take up less space than traditional office copiers while offering four times the functionality," said Mathews.
