This Week in the Copier Industry 10 Years Ago (Second Week of August 2007)

99762069653dba562c1149b4588905ce_three_columnSAN FRANCISCO -- Before the baseball winds up on eBay, before we make up our minds what the new record means (if we can) and before Pedro Gomez is assigned to follow around Alex Rodriguez, let's pause for a few words from the former home run king.

"I would like to offer my congratulations to Barry Bonds on becoming baseball's career home run leader," Hank Aaron said in a video message played on the AT&T Park scoreboard after Bonds hit his 756th home run. "It is a great accomplishment which requires skill, longevity and determination. Throughout the past century, the home run has held a special place in baseball and I have been privileged to hold this record for ........the rest is here

Two things going on there. B2C is about how the b&w and color clicks are handled. Basically, a b&w machine that also has color. Some color copiers can't separate out the solely b&w clicks and charge the color cpc for every click. B2C can make the distinction and charge accordingly. "Creative color" is marketing spin to cover the fact that Ricoh B2C color isn't as good as some other manufacturers, such as Konica Minolta's. Our Ricoh trainer guy also used to say "pleasing color" or "office color

well said Shaja, bit depth is far more important to quality color than resolution. if you have 8 bit 600X600 your quality will be much better than a 2 or 4 bit with a resolution of 2400X1800. Like a Konica minolta guy told me on resolution you can only put so many dot in an inch until they start to just pile up whereas the bit depth has to do with the color variation per pixel.

Art, It will do some but not on a regular basis. We had to replace a c4500 that was doing lots of thicker coated stocks with a Canon. I just sold a C811DN and I am certain the brochure on that product says "glossy". I also have the recomnended paper chart from Ricoh and will try to send tomorrow if I can find it.

Never thought I'd see the day we'd replace a Ricoh color machine with a Canon to get better media handling .

Re: Stewart Letter to Customers in North East!

I am sorry but I see nothing wrong with the letter. What do you guys see that is wrong? I think they are tyring to protecting their interests...ahould of thought about that before they signed on with Xerox. We have that letter from Ricoh/Tom that I carry around and that seems to work just fine. I never bad mouth the competition....I just provide the facts and let the customer decide. People like Ricoh and will go to where Ricoh is not where they were. But lets get real... there is a lot of mud

Aficio 2232 Fax forwarding subject line ?

When setting up the aficio 2232 or any Ricoh product is there a way to set a default subject line for scan to email or fax forwarding to email. Customer had a Toshiba machine and liked that the Toshiba could be programmed to include the fax number of a fax that came in on before forwarding to an email account. The message included the fax number of the incoming fax in the body of text of the email. Also for scanning to email can the subject line be defaulted to a certain message ?

I am not sure about the forwarded fax message including the sending fax machine number. I know the default subject for the MP series color machines can be changed to whatever the end user needs. The sending fax machine should transmit the fax information along with the fax so any image printed/viewed should display the fax number anyway. Either way, the current B2C Ricohs are tough to beat in a lot of areas.

A good rule of thumb is to run no more than about 25% of the machine's recommended monthly volume on "special" paper (e.g. heavy-weight or coated). N.B.-The paper recommendations in this file for the MP C3500/C4500 apply for the C811DN as well...

With regard to Ricoh copiers, what does that designation mean? How do they differ from other color copiers?
