Although colour printing is now commonplace in business and private life, there is still a general feeling that professional-quality colour is expensive and difficult.
The multifunctional ineo+ 200 from DEVELOP proves this is no longer true. This machine combines the best features of a monochrome office machine with the added bonus of easy, inexpensive, professional-quality colour. And that makes this machine ideal for printing presentations, invoices or letters featuring a corporate logo in colour.
Patrick Klaus, the DEVELOP product manager responsible for the ineo+ 200, explains the concept behind the new machine: Nothing announces your presence more powerfully than colour. It ties together all your business communications, in all media, and is essential for professional proposals, reports and presentations. We know the office market needs a machine that is inexpensive to run and easy to use. This ineo+ 200 fulfils those two requirements, but still should not be seen as just a basic multifunctional office device. It has a broad range of functions that save time and effort in an office environment and are all easy to use, not least thanks to the large touch-screen operating panel.
The standard printing, copying, scanning and optional faxing functions of the ineo+ 200 meet all the business communication needs of any office or work group. A single multifunctional machine obviously requires a lot less space than four separate devices and offers a few other advantages besides, e.g. one set of consumables instead of four and a single operating concept that means less hassle for office users.
The ineo+ 200 produces prints and copies of unusual quality for a machine of its size. Whether in colour or black and white, the speed is the same: 20 A4 pages per minute. Of course, the ineo+ 200 is not as fast in A3, but the mere fact that it can print and copy in this format distinguishes it from many other smaller office machines. An optional duplex printing capability and an optional job separator are among the other useful office functions.
Though multifunctionality often means mediocrity in minor functions such as scanning and faxing, this is certainly not the case with the ineo+ 200. This office device has a respectable scanning speed of 40 originals per minute (opm) in black and white and 20 opm in colour, enables several pages to be scanned at once and allows scanned documents to e-mailed to a PC or any other address as a PDF, JPEG or TIFF file. A fax option turns the ineo+ 200 into fast fax machine that is ideal for multipage faxing (and scanning) if the optional automatic document feeder is fitted.
Besides Energy Star, Blue Angel and ROHS compliancy, the ineo+ 200 works quietly a significant advantage in a desktop device designed for small or mid-size offices.
