OKI Data Americas Expands its Award-Winning Product Portfolio with the Introduction of a New Color Tabloid A3 Printer Series for Small Workgroups

MOUNT LAUREL, N.J., June 13, 2013 OKI Data Americas announces the availability of the C831 Series of tabloid/A3 single function digital color printers. The C831 Series – including the C831n and C831dn – combines a powerful feature set with advanced print speeds at a competitive acquisition cost paired with a low total cost of ownership. These printers are ideal for demanding small workgroups, delivering versatile printing capabilities and enhanced performance within a compact device. In fact, the C831 Series are the tabloid/A3 color printers with the smallest footprint available in the market today [1].

The C831 Series builds off of the success of OKI’s award-winning C830 tabloid/A3 digital color printers, and offers users increased print speeds, longer consumable life, and improved maximum paper capacity. The product is backed by a one-year limited On-Site warranty [2] and industry-leading five-year limited LED printhead warranty.

The C831 Series features a new design that provides easy access to the black toner cartridge. Additionally, the C831 Series offers eco-friendly attributes including deep sleep mode, auto power off, ENERGY STAR® compliance and toner save function, plus standard duplex capability within the dn model.

“OKI Data Americas is pleased to announce the addition of its newest color tabloid/A3 single function printers to our broad printing portfolio,” said Hiroyuki Fukushima, Director of Non-Impact Printer Product Marketing for OKI Data Americas. “We believe that the C831 Series is a great addition to any small workgroup where tabloid printing may be needed.”

Each C831 model boasts highly competitive print speeds and best-in-class paper handling. It delivers clear, sharp print-outs of speeds up to 35 pages per minute for color and monochrome letter sized documents, and 20 pages per minute for tabloid sized documents [3].

The C831 also provides high definition color printing technology that is ideal for a variety of media from heavy card stock to polyester film to 52 inch banners, and includes an advanced control system that checks for alignment, registration and color balance. Users can also take advantage of larger paper capacity with two additional trays for a maximum of 1,460 sheets, and a multi-purpose tray which handles envelopes and custom sizes. All features and functionality are designed to optimize performance for small workgroups.

Each model includes a LCD display, intuitive menu system, and an alphanumeric keypad. The keypad enables quick retrieval of password-protected documents with secure print features that encrypt job data, store it on the optional SD Memory Card, and purge it when the job is printed. In addition, the C831 Series is compatible with OKI Print Job Accounting software which enables administrators to track printed output costs for bill-back to individual user and groups, and can also be used to prohibit unauthorized printing.

Fukushima continued. “OKI is committed to providing powerful printing technology and cost-effective printing solutions to the marketplace, and we believe that the C831 Series delivers on this promise.”
