Ricoh SA will showcase its range of Ricoh projectors, the MP C4502ARDF multifunction printer fitted with the SR3110 booklet finisher, and the MP C305SPF at the Africa Print RoadShow in Port Elizabeth, taking place on 13 February at the Boardwalk Convention Centre. 

 Experts will also be on hand to discuss the entire range of Ricoh products.

The Port Elizabeth market is important to Ricoh SA which is why we re-established our direct presence in the area last year, said Vaughan Patterson, sales manager for the production printing business group at Ricoh SA. The devices and solutions we will display are particularly suited to the market requirements of the region by helping those types of businesses be ready for the future. However, we will not be limited to providing information and expertise on those systems alone but on the entire range of Ricoh products from high-end production equipment to the smallest printers and single function devices in our lineup because we aim to be partners to our customers to drive their success.

The MPC4502ARDF multifunction printer is designed for users who run between 10000 and 50 000 copies, prints and faxes per month. It is a colour laser device that handles stock from A6 to A3 sizes and is most suited to medium workgroups. It is distinguished by its network connectivity, it is easy to use with its intuitive touch-screen LCD and drivers. It has 190Gb of in-device storage and is modular so it can be upgraded at any time.

The SR3110 booklet finisher handles A5 to A3 stock up to 256gsm and up to 2 000 sheets. It can saddle stitch suitable for booklets, catalogues, brochures and manuals.

The MP C305SPF provides colour printing, scanning and copying functions from the desktop and operation is easy using the til-table 10,9cm (4.3-inch) colour touch panel. It is Ricohs next-gen platform that includes the new GWNX controller, which gives users the same capabilities as the newly launched A3 devices. The simple cube design optimises space.

The device warms up quickly using Ricohs new Quick Start Up fusing technology, which cuts typical electricity consumption and reduces the recovery tie from sleep mode and initial warm-up time, and extra paper trays make it last longer between refills. It scans colour, to e-mail, folder, or USB and digitally signed PDF. The device also offers better management options normally associated with A3 devices, such as configuring device settings, monitoring status, and creating usage reports. Companies can also reduce the number of unnecessary prints and copies by establishing daily output limits for individual users or groups and standard duplex printing helps to reduce the volume of printed documents and saves paper.

Ricohs range of projectors covers entry-level, mobile, ultra short throw, high end, and standard devices. Entry-level projectors are an economical option for those with limited requirements and budgets and they include the money-saving Eco Mode that cuts power consumption and extends lamp-life by 33% for a low total cost of ownership.

The mobile projectors need less space than a piece of A4 paper, stand just as tall as an IC card, can be set up by the side of a desk or in the corner of a room in a clients office, and weigh 1,8kg. Ricohs ultra short throw projectors combine a space-saving upright design and Ricoh’s innovative free-form mirror system so that the PJ WX4130 or PJ WX4130N bring cutting-edge projector technology to the smallest spaces.

Ricoh Smart Presenter, which runs on the Apple iPad, allows a user to hold paperless meetings and presentations in conjunction with the Ricoh projector. Smart Presenter allows materials to be shared among the participants of a meeting on their iPads, which means a meeting host does not have to distribute printed materials prior to the meeting. For participants without iPads, a full view of the presentation is simultaneously projected through the Ricoh projector.
