NEW YORK, June 27 /PRNewswire/ --

PC Expo -- Building on its pledge to provide high-quality Digital LED printing and document solutions for small and medium-sized business, Oki Data Americas, Inc. today expanded the OKIPAGE 24 Series family of workgroup printers by introducing three new models -- the OKIPAGE 24, OKIPAGE 24n, and the OKIPAGE 24Tn.

From double-sided printing to wireless printing, the Series offers several standard and optional features that can be custom-configured to meet the specific needs of today's fast-paced office environments. Introduced at PC EXPO this week, the OKIPAGE 24 series employs Oki Data's Digital LED technology for reliable performance and high quality output.

"With this new family of printers, we have created affordable printing solutions that can be customized through various options to meet the changing needs of our customers' businesses," said Joe DiMartino, marketing manager, Oki Data Americas, Inc. "And the wireless options for selected OKIPAGE 24 Series models are further examples of how Oki Data is continuing to develop printing and document solutions that make businesses more productive and efficient."


The core model of this series of printers, the OKIPAGE 24, is built to meet the demands of growing business environments. Engineered for greater print speeds, the OKIPAGE 24 offers 24 pages-per-minute (ppm) with a fast time to first page of just 6.7 seconds. With a rated monthly duty cycle of 65,000 pages, the unit delivers true 600 dots-per-inch (dpi) resolution for crisp, clear images and text, and comes with a 630-sheet standard paper capacity. In addition, it comes standard with 16MB of memory, expandable to 80 MB for enhanced printer performance.

A variety of options and upgrades, such as duplexing, flash ROM and internal or external print servers, are also available to enhance workflow and cut costs.


The OKIPAGE 24n and the OKIPAGE 24Tn are designed to perform in demanding multi-user environments. Both units offer standard Adobe(R) PostScript(R) Level 2 and PCL(R)6, increasing workgroup productivity and efficiency by providing for cross-platform compatibility. Standard 32 MB of RAM can be expanded to 80 MB to easily handle complex, memory-intensive files. The OKIPAGE 24Tn comes standard with two 530-sheet input trays (one on the OKIPAGE 24n) for maximum performance. Both units are expandable with options to 1,790 sheets.

Network ready out of the box, the OKIPAGE 24n and the OKIPAGE 24Tn are equipped with the OkiLAN(R) 6100e+ print server. This 10/100Base-T Ethernet(R) print server offers data transfer speeds significantly faster than industry-popular models, as well as integrated support for the new Internet Printing Protocol (IPP). The IPP support combines the almost-instantaneous document transmission of fax with the sophistication and flexibility of e-mail and the professional print quality of a high-end printer. The OkiLAN 6100e+ can also be used to perform wireless printing from cellular telephones, handheld computers, notebook computers, and other devices using its built-in IrDA protocol stack and an optional IR Transceiver.


With a high-speed engine, powered by a R4700 120 MHz microprocessor, and a long-running 65,000 pages-per-month duty cycle, the OKIPAGE 24DX and OKIPAGE 24DXn are built to perform in demanding network environments. Duplex printing, which allows users to print both sides of a sheet, Adobe PostScript Level 2 and PCL6 come standard on both units. The OKIPAGE 24DX offers 16MB of RAM and true 600 dpi for printing proposals, correspondence and complex graphics quickly with sharp, professional-looking text. The OKIPAGE 24DXn ships with a 10/100Base-T Ethernet print server (optional on the OKIPAGE 24DX), 32 MB of RAM and 1160 sheets of paper capacity to accommodate a wide variety of network configurations and increasing workgroup productivity. Both models are upgradeable to 80 MB of RAM and total paper capacity of 1790 sheets.
