OKI Europe launches extended range of MX8000 Series line printers for flexible, multi-part forms printing

Egham, 30th January 2014 - OKI Europe Ltd has introduced an extended range of MX8000 line printers designed for applications requiring high-volume, multi-part forms printing. For the first time the upgraded MX8000 Series includes a Table Top version, putting high-performance line printing on the desktop - a perfect option where office space is limited.

The MX8000 Series is targeted at sectors with a requirement to produce high-volume, multi-part forms with low running costs, forms flexibility and reliability. These include warehousing and logistics, financial institutions, automotive, retail and other environments with mission-critical back-office printing needs.

"The new MX8000 Series is based on advanced high-impact print technology and takes line printing to a new level of performance," says Peter Dresser, product marketing manager, OKI Europe, "combining robust design with user flexibility and low running costs."

The MX8000 Series replaces the MX1000 CRB Series and incorporates significant product enhancements. These include a new user interface with larger LCD screen, graphical display and intuitive menu navigation for improved user experience.

The new designs are quieter with increased sound-proofing and enable fast ribbon changes and easy paper loading, making the new printers simpler to use. The MX8000 Series also offers a range of print speeds, product variants and paper feed options to meet a wide variety of business requirements.

In addition to the new Table Top (desktop) line printers, which are available in both 500 and 1,000 lines per minute (lpm) versions, the MX8000 Series provides easy-to-move Pedestal variants for maximum office flexibility. These include Zero Tear variants, designed for customers printing large amounts of short print runs or single sheet jobs, when it is important not to lose forms between print tasks; for example when printing cheques, pay slips or tickets. Additionally, Cabinet versions are available keeping noise to a minimum - perfect for office environments.

"OKI has over 50 years of experience in the impact printer industry," confirms Terry Kawashima, managing director, OKI Europe. "The MX8000 Series builds on this outstanding heritage, offering a range of line printers which bring together proven trouble-free reliability, best-in-class performance and outstanding value for money."

IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...
It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged. Old habits die hard, but like most waterfall software projects, most waterfall-style Agile adoption efforts fail to produce the results desired. The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...
With the introduction of IoT and Smart Living in every aspect of our lives, one question has become relevant: What are the security implications? To answer this, first we have to look and explore the security models of the technologies that IoT is founded upon.

Wooed by the promise of faster innovation, lower TCO, and greater agility, businesses of every shape and size have embraced the cloud at every layer of the IT stack – from apps to file sharing to infrastructure. The typical organization currently uses more than a dozen sanctioned cloud apps and will shift more than half of all workloads to the cloud by 2018. Such cloud investments have delivered measurable benefits. But they’ve also resulted in some unintended side-effects: complexity and risk. ...

When growing capacity and power in the data center, the architectural trade-offs between server scale-up vs. scale-out continue to be debated. Both approaches are valid: scale-out adds multiple, smaller servers running in a distributed computing model, while scale-up adds fewer, more powerful servers that are capable of running larger workloads. It’s worth noting that there are additional, unique advantages that scale-up architectures offer. One big advantage is large memory and compute capacity...
