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.

In the midst of the widespread popularity and adoption of cloud computing, it seems like everything is being offered “as a Service” these days: Infrastructure? Check. Platform? You bet. Software? Absolutely. Toaster? It’s only a matter of time. With service providers positioning vastly differing offerings under a generic “cloud” umbrella, it’s all too easy to get confused about what’s actually being offered. In his session at 16th Cloud Expo, Kevin Hazard, Director of Digital Content for SoftL...

For those of us that have been practicing SOA for over a decade, it's surprising that there's so much interest in microservices. In fairness microservices don't look like the vendor play that was early SOA in the early noughties. But experienced SOA practitioners everywhere will be wondering if microservices is actually a good thing. You see microservices is basically an SOA pattern that inherits all the well-known SOA principles and adds characteristics that address the use of SOA for distribut...
Microservice architectures are the new hotness, even though they aren't really all that different (in principle) from the paradigm described by SOA (which is dead, or not dead, depending on whom you ask). One of the things this decompositional approach to application architecture does is encourage developers and operations (some might even say DevOps) to re-evaluate scaling strategies. In particular, the notion is forwarded that an application should be built to scale and then infrastructure sho...

Microservices are the result of decomposing applications. That may sound a lot like SOA, but SOA was based on an object-oriented (noun) premise; that is, services were built around an object - like a customer - with all the necessary operations (functions) that go along with it. SOA was also founded on a variety of standards (most of them coming out of OASIS) like SOAP, WSDL, XML and UDDI. Microservices have no standards (at least none deriving from a standards body or organization) and can be b...
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...
