Jan 8 -- Ricoh Corporation, the leading provider of digital office equipment, and EFI, the world leader in color digital print servers, superwide format printers and inks, and print management solutions, announced today the availability of the Fiery EB-135 Print Controller for the Ricoh Aficio MP9000/MP1100/MP1350 Series.
Built to support the more complex printing requirements facing today's In-Plant and Print-for-Pay environments, the new Fiery-based EB-135 Print Controller sets the standard for performance and reliability.
Based on EFI's new System 8e architecture, EB-135 capabilities include: easily printing Word/Excel/PowerPoint documents through an email client without a printer driver; strengthened security, including enhanced LDAP (Lightweight Directory Access Protocol) support, designed to eliminate unauthorized operation; and EFI's in-RIP (Raster Image Processing) color management system provides consistent, predictable color. The Fiery-based EB-135 also provides a new user-friendly interface, improved page programming features, new preset scan settings as well as full integration with Ricoh's robust third-party finishing options.
Keeping pace with the need to provide a more secure document workflow, the new EB-135 supports several new security-related features in addition to full user authentication, including the ability to overwrite data sent through the device utilizing the new Secure Erase capability.
The new Fiery EB-135 comes standard with 512MB of RAM, a hard disk drive capacity of 80GB and a fast 2.8 GHz Intel Celeron processor to expedite production.
The Ricoh EB-135 Print Controller for the Aficio MP9000/MP1100/MP1350 Series is now available through authorized Ricoh dealers at a suggested retail price of $8,500.
