    scanning, faxing and printing -- improving office productivity.
--  Multi-layered security features to assist in document confidentiality,
    including built-in encryption, physical printer security and PIN control
    for jobs sizes.
--  Color Care Technology that controls color through assignable print
    permissions, monochrome proofing options and three levels of toner saver
    and mono only drivers, reducing up to 50 % of costs.
--  USB Direct Printing and scanning port to simplify tasks, whether basic
    or advanced scan, scan to email, or copy fax and print jobs.
--  Flexible finishing options such as hole-punch, offset, staple, saddle
    stitch and fold, bringing professional finishing options to in-house
    projects.

Our commitment is to deliver solutions which optimize business environments across all industries, globally," said Theresa Lang, Director of Worldwide Distributed Solutions for InfoPrint Solutions Company. "The latest color MFP solution is in response to the era of today's multi-tasking office, needing to do more, for less and even faster than before."

High performance and print speeds for all jobs

Workgroups of all sizes can get more done with these versatile and reliable color MFPs. Both models include a 1.25 GHz processor, 512MB of standard memory, included duplex and multiple standard input sources and fast print speeds.

The 1759 MFP can work up to 30 ppm(1) color or 40 ppm(1) monochrome letter/A4 (18 ppm(1) color or 22 ppm(1) 11"x17"/A3). The 1769 MFP prints at speeds of up to 40 ppm(1) color or 45 ppm(1) monochrome letter/A4 (18 ppm(1) color or 22 ppm(1) 11"x17"/A3).

The customizable award-winning 8" color touch screen provides access to easy-to-use, walk-up MFP functions. Standard color copy/print/scan and mono fax, with a 75-sheet ADF, three input sources, duplex and 80GB hard drive can help increase end user productivity.

These wide format MFPs are designed with the user in mind. Features and functionality are optimized to be intuitive, convenient and user friendly. The Automatic Document Feeder (ADF) can quickly scan both sides of large jobs, or use the flatbed glass for delicate or bound items. The MFP can also identify most different-size pages as they scan and print them on the correct size paper.
