Mr. Cameron Arnold, a guest who experienced the Moverio tour commented that it was ‘absolutely compelling,’ ‘rich and informative’ and a ‘whole new visual experience.’

Cost-Saving Printer

 

For small business owners, listen up! Brother has recently launched a new series of compact colour printers and Multi-functions Centre that promise to deliver cost-saving and high-speed printing. Price starts as low as $498/-

By utilising a newly improved LED printing technology, Brother is able to offer high speed printing at 16 pages per minute (ppm) and rich colour print quality at up to 2,400 x 600 dpi resolution, without increasing the cost of ownership. This will certainly meet the printing needs of both Small Offices Home Offices (SOHOs) and Small and Medium sized Businesses (SMBs)

Additionally, the MFCs offer print, fax, copy and scan functions in one machine with the unique scan to FTP and network features to reduce the amount of paper filing and easier document management for today’s offices. Alternatively, users can also scan to and even print directly from USB flash memory drive.

I do not have the chance to test up the printing quality but I guess this is pretty secondary.  For small business owners, what matters most is to achieve cost saving and decent print quality. The Toner Save Mode enables draft quality printouts that consumes less toner, while a separate toner and drum technology lets users maximise toner and drum usage so less is spent on replacing drums and reducing wastage.
