MFP Features

These new models feature Sharp’s award-winning, easy-to-use touchscreen display, which is common across 30+ models in the Sharp MFP lineup. The available MFP Voice feature with Amazon Alexa enables users to interact with the machine by using simple verbal commands to copy or scan documents. All the new models also offer enhanced productivity features, such as the ability to feed up to 50 envelopes from the standard paper drawer. New Adobe® Embedded Print Engine technology (standard on the Advanced Series) enables users to direct print PDF files from a variety of sources with greater performance and accuracy.

These new models integrate seamlessly with today’s complex network environments and support enhanced cloud services that now include Box and Dropbox. Sharp’s new Application Portal allows administrators to easily add new apps and update existing apps right from the MFP touchscreen. These models also deliver leading-edge security features, such as Firmware Attack Prevention and Self-Recovery, which can identify a malicious intrusion and restore the machine firmware to its original state.

The new Application White-listing feature protects the machine’s file system from unauthorized access. Additionally, administrators can centrally manage select settings using Active Directory® Group Policy.

Energy Star Compliant

Please note that a new ENERGY STAR® specification goes into effect on October 11th. These newly introduced models all meet this new Energy Star 3.0 standard. Additionally, the majority of our existing lineup will also meet the new standards. As Energy Star requirements evolve periodically, we recommend you check their online resources at https://www.energystar.gov/productfinder/product/certified-imaging-equipment/results to confirm the current certification status of a product. This is especially important if your customer has specified a requirement for Energy Star compliance.
