Samsung Press release:

Milan, Italy – June 12, 2012 – Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd, a global leader in digital media and digital convergence technologies, today unveils its next generation of ultra-fast A3 color copiers and A4 color laser printers/MFPs. This new fleet of powerful, intuitive copiers/printers offers superior color quality and cutting-edge design, and has been developed to enhance the efficiency of businesses of all sizes.
The 11 new series spans four A4 segments and A3 copiers featuring a number of key benefits including:
•    World’s first all-in-one main board with 1 GHz Dual Core CPU for more processing power and faster print speed
•    Dual CPU for A4 color printers / MFPs with compact and ergonomic designs that feature simple and customizable interfaces and easy connectivity;
•    ReCP image enhancing technology with real 1,200 x 1,200 dpi to deliver significantly sharper and more vivid images for optimum print results
•    Intuitive solutions for easy fleet and work flow management to enhance efficiency and productivity;
•    Easy connectivity, offering printing at the touch of a button from any device, including smartphones and tablets.
“By leveraging our extensive in-house know-how about semiconductors as well as mobile technology, we have been able to develop our own original technology based on digital expertise.  The result is the most state-of-the-art A3 and A4 devices – an unrivalled differentiator for our customers to experience true technology convergence,” said Seongwoo Nam, Executive Vice President and Head of IT Solutions, Samsung Electronics.

Total Technology Convergence for True Color and Speed
The new A3 copiers were developed using Samsung’s extensive know-how in semiconductors, holding the world’s first all-in-one board combining the commonly applied 7 chips and 9 boards including sub-boards into one. The all-in-one board enables to reduce the number of complex components and cost of quality problems for higher performance, better print quality and lower electricity consumption.
To ensure performance of complex jobs, the new A3 devices have been equipped with Samsung’s latest 1GHz Dual Core CPU for up to 1.5 times faster processing than conventional 1GHz CPU devices for maximum productivity.
Rendering Engine for Clean Pages (ReCP) – Samsung’s latest image enhancing technology – offers crisper and more vivid print and scan results; color edges and text/graphic clarity with real 1200 x 1200dpi resolution. While the addition of a new Polymerized toner, co-developed with Samsung Fine Chemicals delivers exceptionally sharp image quality for optimum print results.

Compact and Ergonomic Design
Heavy and clunky devices which eat up your office space? Through the convergence of technology and optimized design, the new Samsung copiers/printers are now more compact and lighter than existing competitive models, leaving maximum office space.
The Samsung Design Team revolutionized the design by separating the interface and storage zone of a copier/printer for ergonomic usage, providing a cleaner compact look. Apart from the external aspects the user interface (UI) has also been renewed by implementing a 7-inch and a 4.3-inch smartphone like touch screen display on A3 copiers and A4 printers, respectively.

Proven Technology in New A4 Color Laser Printer / MFP Devices
Samsung Printer has seen a great deal of success in recent years with its A4 monochrome laser printers, which were awarded 8 Buyers Lab ‘Picks’, ‘Line of the Year,’ an ‘Outstanding Achievement’ award for its Easy Eco Driver as well as widespread praise from globally recognized testing organizations.
By transferring the already proven technology and experience, Samsung is also introducing a whole new line-up of A4 color laser printers/MFPs and copiers from 18ppm to 48ppm. Targeting private and SOHO customers the CLP-360 series, CLX-3300 series, CLP-415 series and CLX-4195 series are compact in size enabling a more efficient use of space. The A4 copiers CLX-8640 and CLX-8650 deliver world’s fastest printing speeds up to 48ppm for maximum productivity.

Smart Business Solutions For Smarter Working Environment
In addition to the new devices, Samsung now offers upgraded business solutions, integrating documents into a digital workflow for faster, more cost-efficient processing and easier sharing. The new Samsung SmarThruTM solution captures paper documents digitally for fast, accurate, electronic archiving, indexing and file searching. In addition, SmarThruTM simplifies information sharing across different departments through the direct application on fax, FTP, print, E-mail and Microsoft SharePoint. The solution allows to boost corporate productivity.
The new Samsung SyncThruTM solution allows easy management of copiers/printers and other devices within a business, raising productivity through optimization of the printing environment – a true device management solution from job accounting control to hardware eco-settings not only from PCs but also from any mobile device such as smartphones and tablets.

“Samsung now has the capabilities to fulfill the needs of corporate customers with customized solutions and services. We are ready for the global B2B market and our goal is to become a top tier printing solution provider within three years,” added Nam.
