IBM is updating its comprehensive printer family with the introduction of the Infoprint® 1585 (machine type 4539). The Infoprint 1585 is a 50 page per minute (ppm)1 letter/A4 and 28 ppm1 for 11 x 17 in/A3 monochrome laser printer that supports wide format printing, optional two-sided printing, a quick first-page-out time as fast as 7 seconds, and extensive input and output options to enable scalable solutions with reduced costs and increased productivity.

Printing complex jobs is made easier with the powerful 625 MHz processor, 256 MB of standard memory, and an optional hard-drive upgrade. Produce great-looking documents with industry-leading print quality and achieve professional results with 2400IQ print resolution and true 1200 by 1200 dpi at full speed.

The Infoprint 1585 supports a variety of media types and sizes for user flexibility so you can produce complex documents in-house, to save time and cut costs. Paper handling options - such as duplex, high-capacity input, and a finisher - can handle a wide variety of input and output needs. Standard offset stacking capabilities allow for print job separation, and an optional high-capacity finisher on the Infoprint 1585 allows you to take advantage of multi-position stapling and hole punching for optimal productivity.

The operator panel is a four-line 160 x 64 APA (all points addressable) backlit gray scale display, supporting four lines with 20 characters per line. This provides easy navigation and usability is improved with simple to use, large, bold icons on the buttons. Reliability and serviceability are enhanced with "show me" screens and "tell me more" screens.

The Infoprint 1585 can adapt easily to existing infrastructures with the optional 802.11 Wireless feature. This new printer will use the optional wireless feature and reduce installation cost by avoiding the expense of new Ethernet cabling. Add these new printers 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. 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. The files are read and printed - no writing to the printer.

The Infoprint 1585 is 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.

MarkVision Messenger enhances administrators' quality for service and improves end-user productivity and satisfaction by providing real-time notification of printer conditions and facilitates automated responses to these conditions before they become critical and disruptive to user productivity.

This printer provides several standard and optional features that improve or enhance the security of the device.

Using the latest version of MarkVision Professional, administrators can configure and manage devices by using authenticated and encrypted network communications. Using Confidential Print, a user may assign a PIN to a print job, and have the printer hold that job until the user physically arrives and enters the correct PIN. This will prevent another user from taking the printed output from the output bin.
