Dollard-des-Ormeaux (QC) - November 28, 2012 - Brother International Corporation (Canada) Ltd., a leader in small business technology, today announced the launch of its Business Smart™ Series. This innovative new line of colour inkjet all-in-one printers offers consumers a cool design and cutting edge technology. It completely redefines the colour inkjet all-in-one experience as the ultimate combination.
Prior to this launch, those in the market for a colour inkjet all-in-one had to compromise between a number of criteria when making a purchase decision: speed, size, productivity or printing costs. Rather than manufacturing just another generation of all-in-ones, Brother® developed its Landscape Printing Technology that reoriented the way colour inkjet printing is achieved. This breakthrough resulted in a colour inkjet all-in-one product line that virtually eliminates the feature tradeoffs customers faced in their selection process. Now in an attractively designed product they can have:
"This new inkjet series is a game-changer for the printing industry because it delivers the ultimate combination of form and function," said Dwayne Filipchuk, Director of Product Planning. "In today’s small to medium business environments, entrepreneurs need technologies they can rely on, coupled with a range of features that fit their limited workspaces and budgets. The Business Smart™ series offers a striking design and most models also include intuitive swipe TouchScreen display controls to complement their other technologies such as laptops, tablets and smartphones."
This new design changed how a page is stored and printed from portrait to landscape, thereby reducing the machine footprint. Engineers also developed a new engine and increased the size of the print head to help increase print speeds. Ink cartridges were also redesigned to take up less space even with super high page yields. These all-in-ones also feature wireless and mobile device printing capabilities□ , and automatic two sided (duplex) printing. Additionally, these machines have the ability to print up to 11"x17" documents - which amazingly is about the same size of the unit’s footprint. This introduction, anchored by the model MFC-J4510DW, represents a breakthrough for small offices/home offices and businesses. Businesses can now take advantage of these new models to print a variety of documents, spreadsheets and signage up to 11"x17". Users can also leverage the mobile printing features to quickly and easily connect and print from mobile devices, such as with AirPrint™, Google Cloud Print™, Brother™ iPrint&Scan, Wi-Fi Direct™ & Cortado Workplace□ .
The Brother MFC-J4510DW, with an estimated street price of $199*, will be available in November 2012 at Staples Canada. Additional models in the series will be introduced later this year.
The Business Smart Series inkjets, like all other Brother products, include machine lifetime support. For more information about Brother or the new Business Smart™ Series, please visit www.Brother.ca
