This Week in the Copier Industry 10 Years Ago, The Second Week in May 2003

 

Very cool thread from Boston Mike below.  From all of the threads about the Color MFPs, I think we can say that 2003 marked the beginning of the road for color MFP's.  Fifteen years later color MFP's are common in the office today. Margins continue to erode along lower cost devices.

I'm back, and have an answer about the volume delima. You need to open the Aficio 1224C/1232C Sales Hand Book that came on the Launch CD (the one with the Video. Am I the only one who reads this stuff?) Anyway, in Chapter 1, page 1-3, it talks about "Target Office/Target Copy Volume". It has a graph and text showing the Max. Volume is 33.3K per month. The graph also shows the BW and FC Prints based on a max of 33.3K per month. It shows how much color can be done at 10%, 20% etc. up to

Re: color volume for 1232

Ted, Hold the phone! The page you are referring to references page volume of 8,000 / 5000 then below that changes to developments. Developments must be divided by 4 to convert to letter size pages. The accompanying bar graph with color black ratios uses the developments numbers, but says copies. I think the person who put this together does not understand the difference in copies and developments. If you look in the sales information guide on the launch CD which is in the reference folder, you

Nice job Art. Be aware that RBS is coming to a town near you. In Florida they are in Tampa and have a branch office in Sarasota. Will be in Orlando, Miami and Jacksonville soon. If it is not bad enough to compete against Savin, Gestetner, Lanier, Ikon and another Ricoh dealer on some deals. That's (6) Proposals for Ricoh equipment to one customer. I guess one more from RBS couldn't hurt.

I have not personally seen the output, but from what I have heard it is more of a business color quality. I had a Xerox agent try to position it as a solution in a print for pay against a 6513 and the customer did not see the Xerox as a viable competitor. The DC 12 and 3535 are the only two products that I believe fit the creative color category.

Re: Band With Auto-Negotiaion

It sounds like you are refering to having a 10mb or 100mb network. All of the ricoh network devices I'm familiar with use Auto-detect to determine the speed of the network but then they set that value and do not detect again. So when the printer is turned on it looks at the network and detects 10mb speed, and sets the card to 10mb. If the network chances to 100mb the printer does not detect this until it is turned off and on again.

Re: citrix printing???

I'm no expert, but my understanding is Citrix runs on a Unix platform. Usually requires the mini PCL drivers and limited functionality at the output device. But recent drivers that Ricoh has updated supposedly offer additional functionality like duplexing. Bottom line Ricoh products can connect to this environment, probably depending on the version of Citrix. But you have to be mindful of sharing what functions you will be able to access. Best bet is to put it on as a trial, based on a pre

Well, I think GWA refers to the controller almost exclusively. Ground Work Architecture as I understand it refers to the fact that the components such as memory, hard drive, networking, etc. in the controller, are shared by the system and accessed as needed. This is why the old systems needed 2 network connections for printing and scanning and now we only need one (because they didn't have this).

Ridldle Me This Brad...when it is talking about BW only, it states 33,333 is the MMV. Wouldn't doing black only use only ONE dev.... The Black. You wouldn't divide this by 4. So, it still makes sense the way I stated that if they are talking pages on the BW, then they must be talking pages on the color. You can't be talking pages for BW and Dev. for the Color on the same chart...but then again this is Ricoh, the Master of Ambiguity!

One more thing, it says the "target volume" is 5K/8K per month. That is best case senerio, or what Ricoh would want the customer to do. In reality, the machine can do more than the "target volume". This number is called the "Max. Monthly Volume". That is what is being referenced in the chart.

OK I was only thinking of the 3850. I couldn't think of an example of a machine with GWA and a Fiery option, the 2105 is one. The "bug" we are speaking of only applies to Ricoh controllers in GWA machines. That should be more clear =)

Has anyone ever heard of a situation where the printer can effectively handle band with changes on a network. The IT people call it Auto-Negotiation.

Or could this be a problem where any printer may struggle and the problem can be coming from a different source? Thanks, Brian Miller
