Toshiba TEC Announces New e-STUDIO2550CSE Series
CHERTSEY, U.K. – Toshiba TEC UK Imaging Systems announced the introduction of its e-STUDIO2550CSE series A3 color multifunction products (MFP), which set a new industry benchmark by offering high-end technology and a compact design at a highly competitive price point.
Although they account for almost half of the entire color printing and copying market, smaller MFPs with speeds of 20-29 pages per minute (ppm) have traditionally lacked the technology associated with higher end products. The e-STUDIO2550CSE series re-write the script as far as this is concerned by providing small businesses and workgroups with features and benefits previously unheard of in devices of this size.
Part of the company’s Document Manager range, they are the smallest A3 color products in their class. Suitable for any type of organization they can output in monochrome or color at printing speeds of up to 25 ppm and color scanning up to 50 ppm. Online paper capacity can reach up to a comfortable 2,900 sheets from up to five different paper sources. The e-STUDIO 2550CSE series consists of four models: two basic models; e-STUDIO2050C/2550C and the security enhanced models; e-STUDIO2050CSE/2550CSE.
In order to create professional looking documents the MFPs come with a variety of finishing options. These include a job separator and an inner finisher with 50 sheet multiple position stapling, and a professional saddle-stitch finisher with a capacity of 1,000 sheets that can also create booklets with up to 60 pages.
Although small in size these MFPs are big on workflow integration and have web based services as standard. Toshiba TEC’s e-BRIDGE X controller technology supports access to Google Docs, Microsoft SharePoint and Microsoft Exchange via optional workflow connectors, while e-Filing functionality offers over 10,000 one-touch templates to help process and store documents. Other innovative software solutions supported by the e-STUDIO2550CSE series include Drivve | Image, which streamlines MFP document capturing processes by creating automated scan profiles with predefined document filing, or flexible scan profiles with customized indexing.
The protection of confidential and vital information has never has been more important than it is today and Toshiba’s SE models incorporate Toshiba TEC’s unique Secure Erase Drive (SED) technology that makes unauthorized access to information impossible. With virtually no loss of performance all data is encrypted and, in addition, the SED knows which device it has been built into and will allow only this system to access the data. If the SED is removed and connected to another device authentication will fail and the encryption key is automatically deleted.
Total cost of ownership has been a key objective in developing these new products, resulting in a reduction in time spent on service, with labor costs greatly reduced thanks to a simplified service model. The e-STUDIO2550CSE series has been developed to greatly reduce the down time of the device during maintenance, increasing the uptime at the customer’s site. As well as featuring low power consumption, as part of Toshiba TEC’s Carbon Zero Scheme all carbon emissions produced during the manufacture of these devices are entirely offset, making them incredibly environmentally friendly.
“These are the first devices in this market segment to incorporate such high levels of functionality and output quality,” commented Chris Mills, Toshiba TEC UK Imaging Systems’ product manager. “We believe that the e-STUDIO2550CSE series raise the bar for what customers should expect from an MFP and we have demonstrated that it is possible to spend less without having to compromise on color quality and output stability. We are confident that many smaller businesses will benefit from their high performance, incredible efficiency and excellent user friendliness.”
