Brother Canada Changes Printing Landscape With Launch of New Innovative Business Smart(TM) Series Inkjet All-In-One Printers
DOLLARD-DES-ORMEAUX, QC, Nov. 28, 2012, 2012 (Canada NewsWire via COMTEX) --
Game-Changer Boasts Ultimate Combination of New Landscape Print
Technology, Ultra-Fast Print Speeds, Low Cost Printing all in a Sleek
and Compact Design
International Corporation (Canada) Ltd., a leader in small business
technology, today announced the launch of its Business SmartTM Series.
This innovative new line of colour inkjet all-in-one printers offers
consumers a cool design and cutting edge technology. It completely
redefines the colour inkjet all-in-one experience as the ultimate
Prior to this launch, those in the market for a colour inkjet all-in-one
had to compromise between a number of criteria when making a purchase
decision: speed, size, productivity or printing costs. Rather than
manufacturing just another generation of all-in-ones, Brother(® )developed its Landscape Printing Technology that reoriented the way
colour inkjet printing is achieved. This breakthrough resulted in a
colour inkjet all-in-one product line that virtually eliminates the
feature tradeoffs customers faced in their selection process. Now in an
attractively designed product they can have:
-- Fastest in class^ print speeds
-- Smallest in class^ footprint
-- Low cost printing
-- Easy-to-use TouchScreen/TouchPanel display
-- 11"x17" ledger size printing
"This new inkjet series is a game-changer for the printing industry
because it delivers the ultimate combination of form and function,"
said Dwayne Filipchuk, Director of Product Planning. "In today's small
to medium business environments, entrepreneurs need technologies they
can rely on, coupled with a range of features that fit their limited
workspaces and budgets. The Business SmartTM series offers a striking
design and most models also include intuitive swipe TouchScreen display
controls to complement their other technologies such as laptops,
tablets and smartphones."
This new design changed how a page is stored and printed from portrait
to landscape, thereby reducing the machine footprint. Engineers also
developed a new engine and increased the size of the print head to help
increase print speeds. Ink cartridges were also redesigned to take up
less space even with super high page yields. These all-in-ones also
feature wireless and mobile device printing capabilities?, and
automatic two sided (duplex) printing. Additionally, these machines
have the ability to print up to 11"x17" documents - which amazingly is
about the same size of the unit's footprint. This introduction,
anchored by the model MFC-J4510DW, represents a breakthrough for small
offices/home offices and businesses. Businesses can now take advantage
of these new models to print a variety of documents, spreadsheets and
signage up to 11"x17". Users can also leverage the mobile printing
features to quickly and easily connect and print from mobile devices,
such as with AirPrintTM, Google Cloud PrintTM, BrotherTM iPrint&Scan,
Wi-Fi DirectTM & Cortado Workplace?.
The Brother MFC-J4510DW, with an estimated street price of $199*, will
be available in November 2012 at Staples Canada. Additional models in
the series will be introduced later this year.
The Business Smart Series inkjets, like all other Brother products,
include machine lifetime support. For more information about Brother or
