TRUMBULL, Conn., July 10, 2001 -Pitney Bowes Office Systems introduced the DL200 multi-function printer/copier, providing businesses with a new competitively priced digital solution to help control office costs and increase office productivity. Included in this 21 page-per-minute multi-function product, are robust features such as scanning, copying, and faxing that are enabled only with digital technology. Network compatible, the new DL200 is priced to replace 18-25 page-per-minute analog copiers, network printers and convenience fax units with a device that has a much smaller footprint.
The DL200's networking capability allows users to perform multiple tasks on one device, eliminate redundant systems, and save money on consumable supply costs and monthly maintenance agreements. The DL200 only requires an imaging cartridge and add-in toner. For customers, administrative time is reduced by managing one vendor, one maintenance agreement and one set of supplies. Pitney Bowes all-inclusive plans cover all supplies, including toner and the imaging cartridge for a single price, making it even easier to manage print and copy costs.
"Many companies are learning how cost effective it is to migrate towards newer digital equipment," stated Nathaniel Gifford, vice president, Product Development and Strategic Marketing, Pitney Bowes Office Systems. "Priced competitively, the DL200 represents an overall trend towards affordability with newer digital products in the marketplace, and is an excellent example of how Pitney Bowes Office Systems is helping our customers control their office equipment spending."
Based on the proven digital copier design of Pitney Bowes DL260/DL360, the DL200 offers 21 page-per-minute photo reproduction quality printing at 600 x 600 dpi, convenience copying and plug-and-play print functionality for up to 100,000 pages per month. With an optional Pitney Bowes Connex™ print controller, the DL200 provides access to multiple machines from any desktop, speeding document production and simplifying user access. Users can print from PostScript®, PCL, and other file formats. The Connex print controller supports Windows® 95, 98, NT, and 2000, Novell® UNIX, Macintosh® and other platforms.
One of the distinguishing features of the DL200 is its impressive network scanning capabilities. Users can use the enhanced features as a digital "on-ramp" to applications like document imaging and archiving and to better distribute hard documents via email, or store them as PDF or TIFF files. The DL200 supports Scan-to-E-Mail, Scan-to-File, and Scan-to-URL of an FTP server. These new capabilities are essential for any business, including law firms, medical offices, real estate or insurance offices where the effective management and distribution of documents is critical.
As a high-volume fax device, the DL200 is engineered for the most demanding walk-up fax applications. It boasts a 33.6 Kbps modem and JBIG data compression to support a rapid 2.8 seconds-per-page transmit speed. It scans documents into its 16MB standard memory at less than a second per page. An optional second modem line allows simultaneous send and receive transmission.
The DL200, with a list price at $4,100, features 21 page-per-minute black-and-white print speed and is available immediately for ordering through Pitney Bowes sales offices. Additional information is available at 1-800-290-7860.
