Sharp launches touch control MFPs

Sharp Middle East has announced the launch of the world’s first Multi Function Printer (MFP) range with a finger-swipe touch control panel. The line up is the newest of Sharp’s next-generation printing solutions to be offered in the Middle East region.

The three models in the range are the full colour MX-2610N, MX-3110N, and the MX-361ON, all of which feature the 10.1″ control panel which users can tap, flick or slide a finger to control many features such as accessing documents, functions and settings.

Gautam Chakrabarty, Deputy GM Marketing, Business Solutions Division, Sharp Middle East says, “We are very happy to be able to offer these new products to businesses in the region. The addition of a very flexible, incredibly user friendly control system for these new colour MFPs gives a new dimension in controlling the print environment in an office. The intuitive interface has been a revolution in mobile phones, and now we have brought the simplicity of touch screen to the MFP.

“He added: “The new range is geared towards the future of office automation. With features enhancing networking and connectivity combined with intuitive interfaces packaged in an environmentally advanced design, these solutions will help take businesses in the Middle East into the next generation of office operation.”

The entire control experience, based around the colour LCD touchscreen, can be fully customised, with users able to place the most used tools and applications on the home page of the system as desired.
