Ricoh Corporation Introduces Aficio MP 1600/MP 2000 Series


Digital Imaging Systems Provide All-In-One Convenience, Security, and Affordability

WEST CALDWELL, N.J., Feb. 26 /- Ricoh Corporation, the leading provider of digital office equipment, today launched the Ricoh® Aficio® MP 1600/MP 2000 Series. These digital imaging systems enable users to copy, print, scan and fax all from one conveniently compact and powerful system. The MP 1600spf and MP 2000spf are pre-configured and offer digital copying, printing, scanning and faxing standard. In addition, Ricoh has also launched the MP 1600L/MP 2000L Series that provides copying, PCL6 printing and TWAIN scanning capabilities and is ideal for Windows-based environments such as small businesses, workgroups and offices that require a budget-friendly package.

The MP 1600/MP 2000 incorporates user-friendly and time-saving features in addition to output speeds of 16 pages per minute (ppm) for the MP 1600 and 21 ppm for the MP 2000. Copying and scanning capabilities can be enhanced with the large, ledger-sized platen and jobs can be run without interruption due to a generous maximum paper capacity of up to 1,350 sheets on the MP 1600 and 1,600 sheets on the MP 2000. In addition, an optional 30-sheet Automatic Document Feeder (ADF) can be added to the MP 1600 and MP 2000 or an optional 50-sheet Automatic Reversing Document Feeder (ARDF) to the MP 2000 that processes two-sided documents automatically. The MP 1600L and MP 2000L match all the output speeds, volume ranges, document feeding and paper supply versatility of the MP 1600 and MP 2000.

In order to eliminate paper waste and save time, postage and delivery charges, the MP 1600/MP 2000 provides users with optional advanced scanning capabilities to convert documents to TIFF or PDF files and send them directly to recipients' e-mail addresses or network folders. The PDF or TIFF files can be encrypted and securely shared as well as archived in network folders. Security remains a priority for Ricoh and several modes of user authentication are available to ensure only authorized personnel have access to the system and the data stored within it.

The MP 1600/MP 2000's fax option further illustrates the systems' ability to save users time and paper. Documents can be faxed quickly with a Super G3 modem that fires off pages in as little as three seconds per page. By utilizing the LAN Fax feature, users can also send faxes directly from their PC, reducing work interruptions and saving paper. Users can save on long-distance and international phone charges and paper costs with Internet Fax that allows scanned documents to be sent directly to Internet-enabled facsimile systems via the Internet fax feature or to an IP fax machine with the IP fax function.

The MP 1600L and MP 2000L offer Windows-based printing standard through the inclusion of a PCL6 Lite controller as well as network TWAIN scanning and digital monochrome copying to price sensitive customers. Scan-to and fax capabilities have been eliminated in an effort to better position these systems for cost conscious customers.

"The MP 1600/MP 2000 Series is built for today's competitive marketplace and is designed to give users an edge in regards to productivity, time and cost-savings," said Ron Potesky, vice president of Corporate Marketing, Ricoh Corporation. "Ricoh prides itself on developing both efficient and secure products that ease customers' minds, ensuring that their sensitive documents are safe from falling into the wrong hands."

Ricoh continues its long-standing commitment to developing office solutions with environmentally friendly and superior energy-saving features, and the MP 1600/MP 2000 Series is no exception. This environmentally-conscious series includes Quick Start-Up (QSU) Technology, Power-saving Sleep Mode, Duplex and Combine Copy Modes, Toner Recycling and is Restriction of Hazardous Substances Compliant (RoHS), highlighting Ricoh's dedication to giving back to the user as well as the environment.

The suggested retail price of the Aficio MP 1600 is $2,300; the MP 1600spf is $3,325; the MP 1600L is $2,825; the MP 2000 is $2,950; the MP 2000spf is $4,225; and the MP 2000L is $3,475.
