IBM is updating its comprehensive printer family with the introduction of the Infoprint® 1552 (machine type 4537) and 1572 (machine type 4538). The Infoprint 1552 is a 45 page per minute (ppm)1 monochrome laser printer and the Infoprint 1572 is a 50 ppm1 printer.

The printers are ideal for small, medium, and even large workgroups. They deliver fast print speeds, flexible connectivity, and extensive input and output options to enable a scalable solution. The printers provide 1200 x 1200 dots-per-inch (dpi) resolution for crisp text and high-quality graphics.

A number of media options can be installed to offer additional sources of input. Combinations of the 250-sheet drawer, the 500-sheet drawer, the 2,000-sheet drawer, and multiple optional drawers are supported simultaneously. The 500-sheet duplex unit offers two-sided printing for the Infoprint 1552 and 1572. An Output Expander, High-Capacity Output Stacker, and StapleSmart Finisher provide flexibility and a scalable solution in the future.

The Infoprint 1552 and 1572 can adapt easily to existing infrastructures with the 802.11 Wireless feature and will use the optional wireless feature to reduce installation cost by avoiding the expense of new Ethernet cabling. Add this new printer with a wireless card to handle peak workloads, without waiting for IT to reconfigure cables. Preserve architecture or work around areas that are difficult or impossible to cable.

Print PDF documents quickly and easily with the convenient USB Direct Port. Once a flash memory device (thumb drive) is inserted in the front of the printer, a list of PDF files and directories is displayed. Navigational arrows are used to traverse the list/directory tree. The user can easily select the file, choose the number of copies to be printed, and submit the file for printing. Viruses are not a concern given no execution of files takes place on the memory device. The files are read and printed - no writing to the printer.

The Infoprint 1552 and 1572 are provided with printer management utilities. MarkVision Professional is a cross-platform print management solution that enables IT administrators to proactively monitor and manage network devices in an enterprise environment via a Web browser.

1 Exact print speed varies depending on document complexity, system configuration, software applications, driver, and printer status.
