Sharp says its new series of compact colour multifunction printers have the smallest footprint of any A3 colour laser MFP. The new entrylevel BP series devices have a stylish cubic design and make quality colour printing, scanning and copying accessible to a wider range of organisations.
The BP20C20 and BP20C25 slot neatly into any office space, with a footprint (560mm x 560mm) as small as some A4 devices. The compact design and flexibility to add additional paper trays as required ensures a fast and easy installation as a floor standing or desktop device.
The models print at speeds of up to 25 ppm and offer scanning speeds of up to 37 ipm. The printers support a maximum 1,850-sheet paper capacity that can be fed from separate trays on the MFP, allowing users to select different paper styles dependent on the type of printing required, including labels, envelope, A6, glossy or heavy paper.
A 4-inch operation panel can display five lines of content for easy operation and can be adjusted for ease of use and better visibility. Optional features for the BP20C20 and BP20C25 include wireless connectivity, enabling easy everyday office printing from mobile devices, tablets and laptops.
Extra functions that support flexible working and improve efficiency include direct USB printing and the ability to scan to multiple destinations. The ID card copy feature lets users copy the front and back of ID cards onto a single page with a single button, ideal for improving customer service times in hotel lobbies, banks and other customer-facing service industries.
