Minolta-QMS Inc. on Monday introduced its magicolor 3300, a color laser printer that prints at up to 26 pages per minute in both color and black & white. It’s compatible with Mac, Windows, Unix and Linux operating systems and includes 10/100baseTX Ethernet, USB and parallel interfaces. The printer supports PostScript 3, PCL 6, PDF, HP-GL and line printer emulations.
Outputting content at up to 1200×1200 dots per inch (DPI) resolution, the printer includes a 500-sheet cassette that can hold letter, A4 and legal sheet sizes. A multipurpose tray can accommodate another 100 sheets of anything from postcard to banner (8.5 x 35.4 inches). 500-sheet and 1,000-sheet input feeders can also be added.
The printer includes a 450MHz RISC processor and comes equipped with 256MB RAM — it’s expandable to 512MB. It can also support a 2.1GB internal hard disk for local storage of fonts and forms, direct PDF printing, collation, and job accounting.
The magicolor 3300 has three selectable quality modes — Standard, which outputs 600×600 DPI resolution; Quality, which outputs at 1200×1200 DPI at top speed, and Fine mode, which produces 1200×1200 DPI content at half-speed. It offers internal automatic color calibration and can also work with personalized ICC profiles.
The printer ships with a set of supplies including cartridges, imaging unit, transfer unit and a fusing unit. It’s available for US$1,999 for the EN model and $2,199 for the DN model, which adds duplexing.
