While the long-predicted end of office printing has yet to arrive, the print industry is going through massive changes nonetheless — with major implications for the channel.
There’s a showdown underway in the office printer market. A3 copier king Xerox is looking to move into A4 printers — which accommodate standard-sized paper, and which have long been HP Inc.’s turf — with an array of new products. One recent A4 introduction by Xerox is the VersaLink C505, a color multifunction printer (or MFP) that has HP’s LaserJet M577dn as one of its major competitors. Both of the MFPs offer printing, copying and scanning, and are aimed at small to medium-sized businesses and workgroups.
Ringdale, a U.K. provider of document-output management solutions, today announced that its FollowMe Embedded is now available Lexmark’s latest A4 workgroup MFPs including the MX420, MX520 and MX620 Series (see “Lexmark Focuses on Faster Print and Scan Speeds, Higher Toner Yields, and More with New A4 Models“).
The OEM published their first quarter results for the fiscal year 2018 declaring an increase in MFD unit sales and showing a positive outlook for future export markets.
SEOUL – South Korea’s technology giants are bracing for the possible emergence of Chinese chipmakers by increasing sales of high-quality memory chips and pressing ahead with development of next-generation products to try and widen their lead.
