COMMENT Workgroups and small businesses that require the flexibility and sophisticated functionality of an A3 colour MFP but in a compact A4 device will find just what they are looking for in Toshiba’s new e-STUDIO400AC series of A4 colour MFPs. Meeting the diverse needs of busy workgroups, these productive devices incorporate Advanced Toshiba e-BRIDGE Next controller technology, offering seamless integration with a company’s existing print infrastructure and business processes, as well as support for mobile and cloud printing. A 10.1in touchscreen provides intuitive tablet-style operation for quick and easy interaction with workflows, embedded apps, third party solutions, smart MFP functionality and a built-in web browser. The customisable display can be used to turn complicated multi-step processes into time-saving one-touch functions, helping to maximise productivity and avoid bottlenecks. It can also be personalised so that when each user authenticates themselves at a device the home screen displays their choice of apps and permissions. There are two models in the range – the 33 pages per minute e-STUDIO330AC and the 40 pages per minute e-STUDIO400AC. Both produce high quality colour output on a range of print media, from envelopes to banners, and feature a dual scan document feeder capable of scanning both sides of the page in a single pass. For security, the devices support NFC and/or card-based authentication and, as standard, come with a self-encrypting Toshiba Secure HDD that prevents sensitive information from falling into the wrong hands. Like other Toshiba MFPs, the e-STUDIO400AC series is delivered carbon neutral through Toshiba’s Carbon Zero Scheme. In addition, customers can use the e-BRIDGE Plus for Green Information app to save energy and paper costs through on- screen monitoring, reporting and advice. The e-STUDIO400AC series will be available at the end of August.
