SAMSUNG Introduces Dual-Scan Technology on New A4 Color MFP Line Up

RIDGEFIELD PARK, N.J., January 31, 2013 – Samsung Electronics America, Inc., a subsidiary of Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd, today announced a new line of A4 color multi-function printers. Ideal for small, medium and large-sized offices, the new CLX-8640ND and CLX-8650ND models are built with dual-scan technology, saving time and company resources. Samsung is one of the few in the A4 segment to feature dual-scan technology, designed to automatically scan both sides of a document at once for faster output.

“Our new A4 product line with dual-scan technology delivers an additional level of efficiency that our customers have come to expect from Samsung MFPs,” said Tod Pike, senior vice president of Samsung Enterprise Business Division. “With this launch, we are well positioned to deliver innovative technology to our dealers while helping customers spend less time completing simple tasks. We are excited to bring our new product line to market and will continue to evolve our products to further the A4 category.”

POWERFUL PERFORMANCE
Automatic dual scanning provides scans on both sides of a document at once, to scan stacks of documents faster. Large print and copy jobs are easily handled, as well as scan throughput. Every task is completed up to 1.5 times quicker, resulting in more time being spent producing and less time waiting.

In addition, the CLX-8640ND and the CLX-8650ND pack a lot of power with their 1 GHz dual core processor and Samsung’s innovative anti-jam technology, which allows users to keep printing without the need to stop and fix time-consuming paper jams. The technology works by using a roller that is specifically engineered to minimize misfeeds and paper jams, which typically slow users down.


RELIABLE, ECONOMICAL AND ECO-SENSITIVE
Both units are built for high reliability with lower total cost of ownership. With print speeds of up to 51 pages per minute (ppm) for the CLX-8650ND and up to 40 ppm for the CLX-8640ND, users are able to complete jobs efficiently without spending much on resources.

In addition, to keep operating costs under control, both models use high-yield polymerized toner. The polymerized toner uses 35 percent less electricity than other toners in the manufacturing process, which results in a significant reduction in CO2 emission. With smaller and more uniform toner particles, the toner produces crisp lines, more subtly blended tones and beautiful color.

As part of Samsung’s commitment to the environment, all models come with Samsung’s S.T.A.R. Program, a free service that recycles empty cartridges into their major usable component materials and then reuses for other products. Single and bulk returns are available.

SMART, EASY-TO-USE FEATURES
The CLX-8650ND and the CLX-8640ND both feature a large 7-inch touch screen that helps the user perform jobs more smoothly and with fewer steps. The interface offers a smooth flicking and scrolling capability, similar to a smart phone, allowing users to accelerate their document workflow by changing the order or canceling print/copy/scan jobs. The touch screen also allows users to create shortcuts for the most-used functions.

OPEN ARCHITECTURE PLATFORM
The Samsung CLX-8640ND and CLX-8650ND MFPs connect to business applications through the unique eXtended Open Architecture (XOA) platform. Based on open standards, XOA allows third-party vendors to create embedded applications that enhance MFP capabilities, in order to improve business processes.

The CLX-8640ND and CLX-8650ND will be available in January, 2013. The MSRP for the CLX-8640ND is $6,947.46 and the MSRP for the CLX-8650ND is $8,340.12.
