The standard Workio DP-2330 is a high-speed 23 cpm digital copier, 23 ppm network laser printer, and TWAIN based scanner.
Featuring the Advanced Technology of Panasonic's Departmental-Class Digital Systems, the WORKiO(R) DP-2330 and DP-3030 Copy, Print, Scan, and Fax
Panasonic introduces a new series of WORKiO(R) digital imaging systems that suit the volume requirements of workgroups, yet deliver the high performance of departmental multifunction products (MFPs).
The new, network-ready DP-2330 and DP-3030 take the strongest features of the WORKiO DP-2500 (rated "most reliable" in the 2001 copier dealer survey by The Office Products Analyst), and combine them with the superb functionality of the ground breaking 60-page-per-minute WORKiO DP-6010 document imaging system.
The DP-2330 and the DP-3030, which copy and print up to 23-ppm and up to 30-ppm, respectively, follow in the WORKiO tradition of reliable products that are engineered to last. They each come with a combination of features and functionality that is virtually un-matched in workgroup MFP's especially at their lower speeds and costs.
Both models perform a multitude of functions and come standard with network printing, document management software, and an enhanced graphical user interface (GUI) that raises the bar for ease of operation. The control panel features an oversized 8-inch diagonal, half-VGA (640 x 240 pixels), touch-sensitive, LCD display and a logical, intuitive layout for quick access to any function.
With the WORKiO in copy mode, the LCD panel shows both the original image and what the final output will look like, for true WYSIWYG operation. This feature alone represents a potentially substantial savings in both time and paper. When being used remotely, the WORKiO system can automatically send a Job Completion Notice to the user's PC.
With the DP-2330 and DP-3030, leveraging your network has never been easier. Both WORKiO models can be connected to a LAN right out of the box via the built-in 10Base-T/100Base-TX Ethernet interface. In addition, both come with a USB port for direct connection to a PC.
The WORKiO MFPs offer 600-dpi, high-speed network scanning and Internet fax (scan-to-email) capability.
Except for the difference in their speed, the new WORKiO models are jam-packed with the same cutting-edge features and capabilities. In this latest series, Panasonic has not only taken the best of the best, but has also added several enhancements to these digital systems, including:
-- New dual-component engine -- Lower cost-per-copy (based on toner, developer, and photo-conducting drum) -- Enhanced preventive maintenance schedule
According to Paul Wharton, product marketing manager for copier/fax/MFP, Panasonic engineers grafted the electronic architecture of the feature-rich WORKiO DP-6010 onto the frame of the award-winning WORKiO DP-2500 to create the new series.
"These digital imaging systems are very well-suited for today's networked business environment," Wharton said. "They provide consistent quality up to 23 or up to 30 pages-per-minute. And with only a few (finishing) exceptions, the DP-2330 and DP-3030 can do literally everything the feature-rich DP-6010 does."
Wharton added that the new multifunction machines offer a high degree of document management productivity and low ownership cost, while being very easy to use.
The new, high-volume WORKiO models copy up to 30 (DP-3030) and up to 23 (DP-2330) copies-per-minute, with a first-copy time of less than 4.5 seconds.
With 600 x 600 dpi resolution and 256-level grayscale, image quality is equally impressive. Also, Panasonic has incorporated new image-processing technology, including ultrafine toner and carrier particles that are 20% smaller and provide accurate image reproduction. The result is crisp, legible copies with virtually no blurring of small characters, and virtually clear, sharp photos.
The new WORKiO models have inherent network connectivity with a standard Ethernet interface, enabling a number of convenient copying features. Concurrent Copy allows the system to handle up to 12 jobs at a time. For extra-large-volume copying, Tandem Copy enables two of these WORKiO's to work jointly on a single job. With Remote Copy, jobs can be sent to another WORKiO unit across the LAN in another room, or even in another building. Proof Copy outputs a proof set for double-checking before committing to a large quantity.
The new WORKiO's include intelligent network printing capability using Windows(R) Printing System technology. Print speeds (letter) are up to 30 (DP-3030) and up to 23 (DP-2330) ppm(1). These WORKiO units can handle paper sizes from invoice to ledger.
Image quality is driven by 600 x 600 dpi resolution with 256-level grayscale. Panasonic's exclusive Image Enhancement Technology further improves printout quality to 1200 dpi, resulting in superb photo and graphics reproduction with clear, crisp details and smooth gradations. In addition to standard Windows printing, optional printer drivers provide PCL5e/6 and genuine Adobe(R) PostScript 3(R) capability. Printing flexibility is further enhanced with the built-in automatic duplex unit.
The printer can be controlled from a desktop, allowing the user to check the virtual printed results on the left side of the printer driver screen while specifying commands via the GUI. Finishing results can be confirmed on-screen, and the new visual status monitor allows the status of a remote WORKiO to be checked in real time, enabling a quicker response to such problems as paper jams and depleted toner. In addition, documents can be stored in a user's personal mailbox or security box - with space for up to 100 users - and printed at a later time. Intelligent job control management is another important benefit of the new WORKiO series. Using the enhanced GUI, the print queue can be viewed and even deleted for each print or copy job, and approximate job times can be displayed. On a network, the administrator can monitor device status with the job queue and other WORKiO controls, as well as set up or configure the system.
With network scanning capability, the new models offer high-speed digitization of paper documents. Originals up to ledger size can be converted to PC data. With up to 600 x 600 dpi resolution and 256-level grayscale, original images and text are reproduced accurately. The standard, automatic duplex document feeder holds up to 50 sheets (20-lb bond) at a time and can batch feed using Job Build up to a maximum of 999 pages.
Built-in network connectivity enables scanned documents to be transferred to any client PC on the LAN - a far more efficient way of sharing documents than printing out copies. The multi-protocol, multi-network design ensures that the systems can connect without fail across all Windows, Macintosh, and Unix network operating systems.
The new models allow a user to either convert a paper document into PC data using the Scan-to-File function, or scan a paper document and send the scanned data to a specified PC using the Scan-to-PC function. With Scan-to-FTP (file transfer protocol), scanned data can be transferred to an FTP server on the network, so images can be downloaded to the client PC or transferred to another network via the Internet. Images can be automatically scanned and directly launch third-party applications such as OCR, email or graphics program. The control panel's user-friendly, animated LCD displays the progress of the scanning operation.
The standard Document Management System software makes desktop document management easy, allowing efficient handling of scanned documents and other PC data. When a scanned image arrives on a PC, Document Manager automatically alerts the user. Using the document viewer, comments can be added or memo slips attached to the image. Scanned documents can be managed by drag-and-drop and shared by network PCs. And with the provided Panafax Desktop software, a fax can be sent directly from a user's PC without having to print it.
Panasonic's optional DD Storage System is provided for large-scale document management on a client-server network. When DD Server software is installed, scanned documents are stored on the DD Server automatically, and the proprietary DD code is stamped on the document's cover page. With the code stamp, a document can be quickly retrieved from the server and printed. Any PC on the network can also retrieve stored documents from the Document Manager screen.
With the optional fax communication kit, the WORKiO is transformed into a high-speed, 33.6 kbps Super G3 fax, transmitting at about 3 seconds per page(2) (letter). Panasonic's 0.7-second Quick Scan makes short work of prep time. Quick Memory Transmission saves even more time by connecting to the receiver and beginning transmission while still collecting data. And with the WORKiO systems' high-resolution scanning capability, 600 x 600-dpi resolution is available for G3 fax or Internet fax.
With the Internet fax option, paper documents are converted to TIFF-F or PDF image files and transmitted as email attachments via the LAN. Sometimes called "free fax," this Send-to-Email feature enables the document to be sent directly to other Internet devices, or even to multiple email clients worldwide. When LAN and PSTN lines are used at the same time, email/G3 mixed broadcast is a convenient way to send the same document to both email addresses and G3 fax machines.
Paperless faxing is yet another WORKiO capability. Image files sent as email attachments can be easily opened and displayed using the existing image viewer (e.g., Imaging for Windows(R)) for paperless fax delivery. WORKiO's fax/email gateway function can automatically route received faxes to the designated recipient's email inbox. Similarly, documents sent from a PC via the LAN can be transmitted to a G3 fax machine.
PAPER HANDLING AND DOCUMENT FINISHING
The WORKiO's offer a generous standard paper capacity of up to 1,150 sheets (2 x 500 + 50), with options for up to 2,250 sheets from 5 sources. The standard built-in, stackless duplex unit ensures trouble-free, high-speed duplex copying. Automated, inline document finishing is also available.
Document production is accelerated by features such as N-in-1 copy for copying multiple originals on a single sheet, Zoom Copy for specification of enlargement/reduction ratios and Image Rotation for accurate copies, regardless of paper orientation. Sort Copy electronically collates copies as shifted or rotated sets; adding expandable sorting memory further enhances sorting capability.
