BROTHER International has introduced two new, high featured flatbed laser digital copier printers' targeted at the corporate/SME markets.
As a 3-in-1 digital copier printer, the DCP-8020 and DCP-8025D feature a laser printer, laser flatbed digital copier and colour flatbed scanner.
The DCP-8020 and DCP-8025D have a fast print speed of up to 16ppm, large 32Mb memory and a new 5-line back-lit LCD display. The DCP-8020 and DCP-8025D also have optional built-in networking capability.
Specifically, the DCP-8025D includes built-in duplex capability and an additional paper input source - a 50-sheet multi-purpose tray for letterhead or envelopes.
The new DCP-8020 and DCP-8025D include high-speed USB 2.0 and IEEE 1284 parallel interfaces, and are compatible with both Windows and Macintosh operating systems.
As business laser printers, the DCP-8020 and DCP-8025D have a print speed of up to 16ppm, HQ1200 dpi resolution printing (up to 2400x600 dpi), up to 250 sheets standard paper capacity (expandable up to 500 sheets with an optional second paper tray) and support for PCL6 and BR-Script 3 (PostScript Level 3) emulations.
The printers also include a 32MB standard memory that is upgradeable to 160MB using industry-standard 100-pin DIMM memory. Specifically the DCP-8020 has a single sheet manual feed and can be used for envelopes, letterhead and card stock.
The other value-added feature on the DCP-8025D is a 50-page multi-purpose tray. While the DCP-8020 does offer a single-sheet bypass for specialised printing needs, the DCP-8025D comes standard with this multi-purpose tray. This makes it even more convenient to print on letterhead stationery, envelopes or cardstock.
As digital copiers, they provide fast copying up to 16cpm, reduction and enlargement from 25-400% in 1% increments, up to 99 copies, and a sorting function.
They also allow for the ability to copy up to legal size documents from either the document glass or from the automatic document feeder. Also included is an "N-in-1" function to allow the user to copy multi-page documents to either 2-in-1 or 4-in-1 page formats.
As a colour scanner, the DCP-8020 and DCP-8025D have the ability to scan colour documents at up to 9600 x 9600 dpi interpolated resolution (600 x 2400 dpi optical) on either the legal-size document glass or through the automatic document feeder.
For Windows-based users there is an easy-to-use "scan to" button for scanning directly to an image, OCR, file or e-mail applications. Document management and OCR software is bundled on the CD.
The DCP-8020 and DCP-8025D are compatible with both PC and Mac environments (Windows 95/98/NT4.0/2000/Me/XP and for the Mac OS 8.6-9.x, OS X 10.1, 10.2.1 or greater). Network capability is also possible with the additional purchase of a Brother NC-9100h internal print/scan server board.
The new printers support networking as an option. This feature provides a variety of LAN networking solutions including network printing, network scanning, scan to e-mail, and web-based management utilities.
The Brother NC-9100h print/scanner server allows the DCP-8020 and DCP-8025D to connect with a 10/100Mbit Ethernet Network.
The web-based management and administration utilities provide easy configuration and management, while connected to the network. Multiple protocol capabilities allow users in Windows, Novell, Macintosh, and Unix environments to simultaneously have access to the DCP-8020 and DCP-8025D.
