Original Press Release:

Ricoh Introduces the Aficio MP 2851 and MP 3351 Digital Imaging Systems

New Models Feature Innovative Technology and Provide Enhanced Customized Solutions

WEST CALDWELL, N.J., -- Ricoh Americas Corporation, a leading provider of digital office equipment, today introduced the Aficio MP 2851 and MP 3351 Digital Imaging Systems. Ideal for small and mid-sized businesses, the MP 2851 and MP 3351 provide quality features Ricoh is known for, such as color scanning capabilities and secure document storage, as well as an increased print speed of 28 pages-per-minute (ppm) with the MP 2851. The MP 2851 and MP 3351 also feature solutions-based technology that provides a customized and unique user experience with Personal Paperless Document Manager(TM) (PPDM) and App2Me®, a brand new technology available in early 2010.

Enabling users to capture, combine, convert and share three different document types, including paper, PDF and Microsoft® Office files, PPDM makes document distribution easy, secure and efficient. Users can send paper and electronic files to virtually any destination including email, FTP sites, Web folders and content management systems. With PPDM, paper originals can be transformed into fully editable Microsoft Office documents or converted into WAV audio files. In addition, data from fillable forms can be extracted into a .csv file for analysis. PPDM also creates custom workflows for users, displaying a personalized view through the interface at their workstation.

The Aficio MP 2851 and the MP 3351 ship standard with one PPDM license and offer an upgrade path for four additional licenses at a discount of more than 80 percent off MSRP at time of purchase.

The Aficio MP 2851 and MP 3351 are the first digital imaging systems to feature Ricoh's new innovative widget-based technology, App2Me. A revolutionary document management solution, App2Me enables users to create customized workflows and execute them anywhere there is a MP 2851 and/or MP 3351. Easy to use and compatible with laptops, desktop computers and various mobile devices, App2Me provides a unique, personalized workflow experience. After its official launch in early 2010, App2Me will be enabled throughout the Ricoh MFP lineup.

"We are pleased to introduce the Aficio MP 2851 and MP 3351 which continue Ricoh's commitment to offer solutions-based products to our customers," said Michael Hunter, director of product marketing, Ricoh Americas Corporation. "Through a combination of high-level security and affordability, these models greatly improve users' workflow with the latest innovation required for today's market".

In today's business environment, security plays a crucial role, especially since compliance regulations, such as HIPAA and Sarbanes-Oxley make it necessary to keep confidential records secure. With the Aficio MP 2851/MP 3351, administrators can restrict access to the system to only users who are authorized with various authentication methods. The Locked Print feature is another security function that allows users to protect confidential documents from being seen or accidentally picked up in the output tray by unauthorized parties. For organizations to meet the highest security requirements, customers can also use the DataOverwriteSecurity System (DOSS) to prevent the possibility of reconstructing data from "latent images" on the internal hard drive.

The Aficio MP 2851 and MP 3351 improve overall productivity with print speeds of 28 pages per minute (ppm) and 33 ppm, respectively. Designed to make professional business documents easier to produce, the MP 2851 and MP 3351 offer a new external keyboard that allows for fast and comfortable data entry when configured with eCopy or GlobalScan NX solutions, as well as a variety of finishing options, including a 1,000-sheet booklet finisher with optional hole-punching. These models also include special design features that provide ease of use, such as a large Full-Color VGA Control Touch Panel, easy-access paper tray handles and animated menu guidance. The MP 2851 and MP 3351 come standard with monochrome printing and copying, plus color and black-and-white scanning capabilities.

The Aficio MP 2851 and MP 3351 are the replacement models for the MP 2550 & MP 3350 SP/SPF engines. Ricoh will continue to keep the MP 2550B & MP 3350B in the product line as a low-cost copier solution with a flexible upgrade path to monochrome printing, scanning & faxing.

The Aficio MP 2851 and MP 3351 models are available at the suggested retail prices of $7,600 and $9,250 respectively.
