Copystar Sets a New Standard in Industry’s Most Dynamic Color Market Segment with Next Generation Compact MFPs

FAIRFIELD, N.J. – February 2, 2016

Copystar, a division of KYOCERA Document Solutions America and a leading document imaging company, today announced the introduction of the CS 406ci multifunctional printer (MFP) series. This is the first series of compact Copystar MFPs offering up to a maximum of legal sized output, which incorporate the features, functions, business applications and robust finishing options that organizations commonly associate with larger footprint devices.

The CS 406ci Series is efficient and compact, yet robust enough to offer all of the power typically associated with higher-volume MFPs. The three new models in the series are: the CS 406ci (42 pages per minute [ppm] color/42 ppm black); the CS 356ci (37 ppm color/37 ppm black) and the CS 306ci (32 ppm color/32 ppm black).

For customers that still associate color documents with higher running costs, Copystar further strengthens this new product introduction by offering its unique Tiered Color System. Providing customers the ability to monitor and control their costs for color output, ranging from simple text documents with a color logo to a vibrant color document, all on their Copystar CS 406ci series device. The CS 406ci series is the latest Copystar CS MFP series with the Tiered Color System capability, putting customers in control of color costs by paying for the actual color used.

As is true with many Copystar CS MFPs, the CS 406ci series delivers an industry-leading preventive maintenance schedule of 300,000 pages for the CS 406ci and 200,000 pages for the CS 356ci and CS 306ci. Copystar’s long-life technology is known to deliver the ultra-reliability that businesses demand helping to reduce required service intervention, while maximizing performance in every environment. This long-life technology offers customers increased productivity and uninterrupted workflow of critical documents.

Featuring a 7 inch tablet-like touch screen interface on the CS 406ci and 356ci (4.3 inch on the CS 306ci) with a 90 degree tilt for adjustable viewing, high definition color resolution of up to 1200-dpi, and, equally important, countless device configurations, these newest additions to the Copystar line-up are sure to impress. A large selection of advanced finishing options, including a 300 sheet internal finisher for the entire series, a 3,200 sheet finisher (CS 406ci/356ci) equipped with 3-position staple and hole punch and an optional 5-bin mailbox, as well as a 1,000 sheet finisher with 3-position staple and optional hole punch mean that these MFPs can be as compact or robust as the office needs demand.

According to Danielle Wolowitz, vice president, Corporate Marketing Group for KYOCERA Document Solutions America, “We realize that the workplace is ever changing, and customer requirements are always evolving. This series of compact Copystar MFPs is a total document solution that delivers the ideal technology which will directly integrate into an organization’s existing infrastructure and help to optimize their document environment, no matter what the industry. Bottom-line, this color series will change the way customers think about their A4 MFP.”
