The Lexmark X740 Series and Lexmark C748 family are highlighted by intuitive 7-inch and 4.3-inch color touch screens, respectively, that provide tablet-like navigation. In fact, the models within the Lexmark C748 family are the first and only color laser printers under $1,000 to offer a color touch screen user interface(1). These sophisticated touch screens are the gateway to several pre-loaded applications, such as Forms and Favorites and Scan to E-mail on the Lexmark X740 Series, and can also be tailored easily with additional time-saving solutions based on unique business or workgroup needs.
The Lexmark X740 Series and Lexmark C740 Series deliver high-quality color documents consistently from the first to the last page. Equipped standard with Lexmark Named Color Replacement, businesses can store pre-defined colors on the devices to ensure precise and consistent color matching for branded materials. Print jobs that might otherwise have to be outsourced and cost thousands can now be done internally with vibrant colors that meet the highest standard of accuracy.
For added productivity, all models within the Lexmark X740 Series and Lexmark C740 Series boast a maximum paper input capacity of 4,300 sheets, which is the highest paper capacity in these classes of devices(2). Optional 550-sheet trays and 2,000-sheet high capacity trays allow users to load multiple paper types and further customize input options to meet specific printing needs.
The new MFPs and printers announced today are equipped with advanced, state-of-the-art security to help protect valuable corporate data. Authentication, authorization, audit logging and hard disk wiping(3) are each offered as standard, out-of-the-box capabilities and do not require the purchase of additional data security kits.
Like the large workgroup and other mid-range workgroup devices in Lexmark's product portfolio, the Lexmark X740 Series and Lexmark C740 Series are fully capable of being deployed in managed print services (MPS) engagements.
