OKI Europe enhances A3 multi-function printer offering, delivering stunning results at high volume

New ES94X5 MFP series offers organisations the exceptional combination of performance, flexibility and finishing

Egham, 11th June 2014 - OKI Europe Ltd has launched the ES9455 MFP, ES9465 MFP and ES9475 MFP, an advanced range of A3 colour multi-function printers (MFPs) based on OKI's pioneering digital LED technology. These smart MFPs are aimed at schools, businesses with large departments and companies where there is a need for high-volume printing, copying and scanning.

The ES9455 MFP, ES9465 MFP and ES9475 MFP have a large colour touch screen providing easy access to all functions of the device, while sXP, an open platform architecture and embedded web service interface, provides support for a wide range of document capture and document output solutions offering customers an opportunity to customise and control the flow of work to and from the device.

"OKI's new range of smart MFPs meets the needs of more demanding users who want A3 colour printing, copying and scanning in one cost-effective device that can handle heavy workloads," says Peter Dresser, product marketing manager, OKI Europe Ltd. "These MFPs further enhance OKI's already substantial offering in this important part of the market. They are designed to manage document workflows across every kind of organisation - from small businesses to busy departments."

New to the range is the ES9455 MFP which addresses the needs of customers requiring a flexible device capable of handling heavy workloads while also providing sophisticated finishing when required. Uniquely for a product at its price, it offers the option of an internal two-tray finisher and external Saddle Stitch finisher.

The ES9465 MFP and ES9475 MFP are direct replacements for the ES9460 MFP and ES9470 MFP. The ES9475 MFP's 50 pages-per-minute print speed meets what is becoming the standard requirement for printing in the commercial world. Both the ES9465 MFP and ES9475 MFP feature key enhancements which include:

  • Better print quality
  • Faster warm-up time (warm-up time of just 12 seconds)
  • 28% faster scanning
  • Lower power consumption
  • Smaller unit size
  • Reduced weight

Their advanced security features and seamless integration with document workflows allow users maximum productivity even when dealing with confidential documents.

Each unit is sold with a variety of optional trays including a choice of either Cabinet, Paper Feed Pedestal (PFP) or Large Capacity Feeder (LCF) configurations and a range of finishing options, the ES94X5 MFP Series combines versatile paper handling with high-definition printing, granting users the flexibility to generate a wide variety of documents in-house.

Before becoming a developer, I was in the high school band. I played several brass instruments - including French horn and cornet - as well as keyboards in the jazz stage band. A musician and a nerd, what can I say? I even dabbled in writing music for the band. Okay, mostly I wrote arrangements of pop music, so the band could keep the crowd entertained during Friday night football games. What struck me then was that, to write parts for all the instruments - brass, woodwind, percussion, even k...

Keeping pace with advancements in software delivery processes and tooling is taxing even for the most proficient organizations. Point tools, platforms, open source and the increasing adoption of private and public cloud services requires strong engineering rigor – all in the face of developer demands to use the tools of choice. As Agile has settled in as a mainstream practice, now DevOps has emerged as the next wave to improve software delivery speed and output. To make DevOps work, organization...

There's a lot of things we do to improve the performance of web and mobile applications. We use caching. We use compression. We offload security (SSL and TLS) to a proxy with greater compute capacity. We apply image optimization and minification to content. We do all that because performance is king. Failure to perform can be, for many businesses, equivalent to an outage with increased abandonment rates and angry customers taking to the Internet to express their extreme displeasure.
Right off the bat, Newman advises that we should "think of microservices as a specific approach for SOA in the same way that XP or Scrum are specific approaches for Agile Software development". These analogies are very interesting because my expectation was that microservices is a pattern. So I might infer that microservices is a set of process techniques as opposed to an architectural approach. Yet in the book, Newman clearly includes some elements of concept model and architecture as well as p...

Adding public cloud resources to an existing application can be a daunting process. The tools that you currently use to manage the software and hardware outside the cloud aren’t always the best tools to efficiently grow into the cloud. All of the major configuration management tools have cloud orchestration plugins that can be leveraged, but there are also cloud-native tools that can dramatically improve the efficiency of managing your application lifecycle. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, ...

No matter how well-built your applications are, countless issues can cause performance problems, putting the platforms they are running on under scrutiny. If you've moved to Node.js to power your applications, you may be at risk of these issues calling your choice into question. How do you identify vulnerabilities and mitigate risk to take the focus off troubleshooting the technology and back where it belongs, on innovation? There is no doubt that Node.js is one of today's leading platforms of ...

Let's just nip the conflation of these terms in the bud, shall we?

"MIcro" is big these days. Both microservices and microsegmentation are having and will continue to have an impact on data center architecture, but not necessarily for the same reasons. There's a growing trend in which folks - particularly those with a network background - conflate the two and use them to mean the same thing.

They are not.

One is about the application. The other, the network. T...

This is a no-hype, pragmatic post about why I think you should consider architecting your next project the way SOA and/or microservices suggest. No matter if it’s a greenfield approach or if you’re in dire need of refactoring. Please note: considering still keeps open the option of not taking that approach. After reading this, you will have a better idea about whether building multiple small components instead of a single, large component makes sense for your project. This post assumes that you...

Sharding has become a popular means of achieving scalability in application architectures in which read/write data separation is not only possible, but desirable to achieve new heights of concurrency. The premise is that by splitting up read and write duties, it is possible to get better overall performance at the cost of a slight delay in consistency. That is, it takes a bit of time to replicate changes initiated by a "write" to the read-only master database. It's eventually consistent, and it'...
Node.js and io.js are increasingly being used to run JavaScript on the server side for many types of applications, such as websites, real-time messaging and controllers for small devices with limited resources. For DevOps it is crucial to monitor the whole application stack and Node.js is rapidly becoming an important part of the stack in many organizations. Sematext has historically had a strong support for monitoring big data applications such as Elastic (aka Elasticsearch), Cassandra, Solr, S...
