Sydney, 2 June 2015 – OKI Data Australia, a global manufacturer of business printers and multifunction devices, has announced the introduction of the new MC800 A3 LED colour 4-in-1 multifunction series. 

The new MC800 series delivers the performance, versatility and productivity enhancement that is sought after by businesses seeking fleet optimization within their environments.  With a space-saving, compact footprint and robust construction, the new ergonomic design of the MC800 series includes a customisable 7-inch colour touch screen panel with auto-tilt mechanism, making it viewable when the scanner cover is opened.  The user-friendly smart MC800 also features a comprehensive on-screen guided help and self-maintenance function, to assist with the replacement of consumables and maintenance items, as well as tips on how to look after important areas of the device such as the LED print heads, scanner unit and paper feeds. The screen also lets users programme their own jobs macros as individual function commands.


There are two models, each available in several configurations.  The range-opening MC853 includes:

·         Media handling from A6 to 1.3m banners, up to 256gsm

·         Optional paper capacity to a maximum of 2,005 sheets

·         Print speeds of up to 23/13 ppm (A4/A3) in colour and mono

·         Time to first page output as fast as 14 seconds

·         Colour scanning with send-to functionality

·         Standard duplex printing capability

·         100 sheet duplex RADF that scans both sides

·         Networking + optional wireless LAN

·         Standard convenience stapler + job separator/second output bin

·         Secure print encryption for confidential documents

The range-topping MC873 offers in addition to the MC853:

·         Print speeds of up to 35/20 ppm (A4/A3) in colour and mono

·         Time to first page output as fast as 9.5 seconds

·         Optional high capacity toner cartridges

Both models use the latest open API version of OKI’s smart Extendable Platform (sXP) to enable print management, document capture and document management.  sXP (available from July) will offer additional functionality for developers to build unique solution applications. Both models are also Google Cloud Print ready and AirPrint™ ready. Further, the models are integrated circuit (IC) smart card reader-ready^, for flexible user management and secure printing.

Document-intensive office tasks are made more agile with ABBYY FineReader Sprint OCR (Optical Character Recognition) software, a downloadable PC/Mac desktop application that is available free of charge. This powerful software allows users to quickly and easily convert paper documents, as well as PDF files and images, into editable and searchable text. Additionally, bundled SENDYS Explorer LITE, enables simplified document management including the ability to capture documents from various sources. Documents can then be converted, distributed or uploaded to a chosen location, providing greater flexibility to edit, access, print, retrieve and share files.

 “OKI Data understands the needs of today’s evolving workplace and now offers a more compelling portfolio of solutions designed to increase productivity,” said Antonio Leone, Marketing Manager, OKI Data Australia. “The introduction of our new MC800 series addresses these needs by providing enhanced functionality and performance in a range of smart, compact, easy-to-use devices, with integrated self-maintenance, backed by the peace of-mind of 3 years warranty and LED technology’.

The new models are available through OKI’s distributors - Alloys, Dynamic Supplies, Multimedia Technology, and XiT, as well as its dealer network which includes Leading Edge and Office Brands.
