WEST CALDWELL, N.J., April 19, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Ricoh Americas Corporation, a leading provider of digital office equipment and advanced document management solutions and services, today announced the launch of the Aficio SP C431DN-HS Color HotSpot Printer to provide cost efficient, high resolution, full-color 42 page-per-minute laser printing from anywhere. Whether a public or private network, paid service or free amenity, the SP C431DN-HS fits anywhere convenient mobile printing is required.
The SP C431DN-HS Color HotSpot Printer offers a fast and easy means to print emails and email attachments, documents and Web pages using virtually any Internet-enabled device, such as a BlackBerry® smartphone, Apple® iPhone® or iPad®, or DROID. Corporate guests and visitors do not need to access the company's network nor do they need IT support, driver installation, app downloads or connection cables to conveniently print.
"Our customers' workflows are changing as workers become more mobile. The SP C431DN-HS Color HotSpot Printer places the power of driverless mobile printing in the hands of every user," said Shun Sato, senior vice president, Marketing, Ricoh Americas Corporation. "At the same time, Ricoh continues to look for ways we can help our customers improve workflows and productivity as part of an overall document management solution. This product supports that strategy by helping both our customers' staff and visitors conveniently access the right information at the right time in the right form."
The SP C431DN-HS is a secure, embedded solution, providing access to brilliant full-color network printing without giving unmonitored access to a company's network. The Web-based PrinterOn Mobile Printing Service, which comes bundled with the SP C431DN-HS with a one year subscription, operates independently from the company network so that all mobile print jobs are processed outside the company firewall. In addition, files can only be printed after the job owner enters a private release code for each job, helping to mitigate the risk that sensitive documents will be seen in the printer tray by an unauthorized party.
All hardware and software are pre-loaded inside the printer, which means no external appliances, keypads or servers are necessary at the installation site. Ricoh's HotSpot technology is a customizable mobile printing solution completely embedded inside the desktop printer.
