Toshiba Launches the e-STUDIO 523/603/723/853 MFP Series

Toshiba America Business Solutions announces the new and improved e-STUDIO 523/603/723/853 and e-STUDIO 523T/603T/723T series nationwide. Built on the robust platform of the e-STUDIO520/600/720/850 family of MFPs, the new line of high-speed, large-volume MFPs features expanded security elements and encryption, support for the Microsoft Windows Vista operating system and enhanced XPS printing options. The e-STUDIO523/603/723/853 series incorporates high image quality, high-speed printing and multiple paper source options, making it the perfect choice for high-volume production environments.

The e-STUDIO523T/603T/723T family shares all the same product features as the e-STUDIO523/603/723/853 series, with the added convenience of tandem 1,250-sheet letter paper cartridges, effectively doubling the printing output capacity between paper refills in the same MFP footprint.

The e-STUDIO523/603/723 and e-STUDIO523T/603T/723T MFPs feature a high-speed, single-beam laser-imaging unit, while the e-STUDIO853 uses a dual laser-beam design, delivering pin-point print accuracy across the family of MFPs for every single copy. An 8-bit scanner module and up to 2,400 x 600 dpi output ensures that scans and copies are as clean as the original, while not compromising production speed. Standard in both MFP lines is the Toshiba Serial Filter, which produces crisp, sharp text and line-art, while maintaining deep black fills.

The Toshiba e-STUDIO523/603/723 and their T equivalents offer print speeds of 52, 60 and 72 pages-per-minute respectively, while the e-STUDIO853 prints at a blistering 85 pages-per-minute, ensuring efficient document output throughout the product line. All models scan at 71 scans-per-minute at 600 dpi when copying, and 83 scans-per-minute at 300 dpi when scanning to file. The e-STUDIO853 features a first-copy-out-time (FCOT) of less than 3.5 seconds, with the rest of the product family close behind with a less than four second FCOT.

Incorporating Toshiba's e-BRIDGE single-board architecture, the e-STUDIO523/603/723/853 series uses a single circuit board to control copying, printing, scanning and other functionality to decrease memory overhead and improve print time. Additionally, a dual-speed paper handling system slows down the paper while it passes through the process unit and makes up the speed elsewhere to maintain performance.

Working closely with Microsoft, Toshiba's new e-STUDIO523/603/723/853 and e-STUDIO523T/603T/723T family of products provide Windows Vista-specific printing enhancements in the form of XPS Print Path drivers, Windows Color System support and Windows Vista WS print and scan support, while remaining 100 percent backwards-compatible with existing deployments. This XPS format integration offers full printer functionality and enables users to print 2007 Microsoft Office system documents directly to the MFP without the wasted overhead of file conversion.

The e-STUDIO523/603/723/853 and e-STUDIO523T/603T/723T series offer advanced security features, including support for IPv6, IPSec, SSL, SNMPv3, 802.1x authentication, providing secure management and network communications. Additionally, the entire product family includes Encrypted PDF, allowing users to add a password when creating scanned PDFs, to prevent unauthorized viewing or printing.
