• Sharp enhances compact A3 colour line-up with new advanced MFP

        • Sharp has announced the addition of a new advanced compact colour multifunction printer to its line-up of the smallest A3 colour MFPs on the market. 

          The BP-30C25 offers a host of productivity functions, best-in-class security enhancements and the same powerful workflow features and user interface common across the Sharp A3 range. The compact and stylish cubic design offers a versatile range of deployment options, helping to support social distancing for those returning to the office.

          The BP-30C25 offers robust security features, such as a firmware attack prevention and a self-recovery capability, which can identify a malicious intrusion and restore the machine firmware to its original state. A new whitelisting feature helps protect the machines' file system from unauthorised access. 

          The cubic device also fits into any office space and is even suitable to position on desks, due to its best-in-class footprint (575mm x 630mm), ideal for offices being redesigned with social distancing in mind. The compact design and flexibility to add additional paper trays as required ensure a fast and easy installation as a floor standing or desktop device.

          Ben Lake, Senior Product Manager, Sharp said, “we understand the need to provide businesses with a solution that meets the needs of the new normal office environment and can be seamlessly integrated. The newest addition to the BP series offers the same powerful performance and business functionality as our advanced A3 models, and thanks to its compact design can be easily placed in various locations in the office, helping to make allowances for social distancing, and provide reassurance for those returning to the office.” 

          The new model integrates with today's connected workplace, enabling easy access to an expanded list of cloud services that include Box and Dropbox. Optional features for the BP-30C25 include wireless connectivity, enabling easy printing from mobile devices, tablets and laptops without making physical contact with the device. Easy integration to existing network applications and public cloud services means information can be securely shared and accessed anywhere, anytime, helping to increase productivity. 

          The BP-30C25 prints at speeds of up to 25 ppm and offer scanning speeds of up to 52 ipm. The printer supports a maximum 1,850-sheet paper capacity that can be fed from separate trays on the MFP, allowing users to select different paper styles dependent on the type of printing required, including labels, envelope, A6, glossy or heavy paper. 

          The new A3 MFP provides a range of time-saving functions as standard including a customisable user interface, accessed via a 7” LCD touchscreen common across Sharp’s current range, enabling those already familiar with Sharp devices to be ready to work with the machines straight away. In addition, Sharp's Application Portal allows administrators to easily add new applications and update existing ones directly from the touchscreen on the machine. 

          The BP-30C25 is available to buy now from Sharp and its partners.
