SOFTWARE ADDS PLOTTING CAPABILITY TO WIDE-FORMAT FAX/COPIER FROM XEROX ENGINEERING SYSTEMS

 ROCHESTER, N.Y., March 22 /PRNewswire/ -- A software package that adds plotting capability, and supports the direct importation of AutoCAD plot files, to a multifunctional wide-format facsimile machine, was announced today by Xerox Engineering Systems.
 FAX-ivity, Revision 2.0, is a software enhancement to the Xerox 7124S Engineering Facsimile/Copier. With FAX-ivity software, users can connect the 7124S to a PC to enable printing of ASCII and AutoCAD Revision 12 plot files, as well as scanning, viewing, faxing, copying and digital storing of documents. The 7124S with FAX-ivity software is the only wide-format fax machine on the market to accept AutoCAD files.
 "Due to budget restraints and the demand for increased productivity, customers are looking for devices that serve more than one function," said Mark Maltese, vice president and general manager, systems reprographics, Xerox Engineering Systems. "The 7124S with FAX-ivity gives them three functions within one machine."
 A companion premium-grade thermal media for the 7124S also was announced today. The 7124S Premium Top-Coated Thermal Media is heavier, whiter, more durable and easier to handle than standard thermal media. It was designed especially for the plotting application. The top coat protects the paper from fingerprints, scratch marks and other flaws inherent in other thermal papers. Because of the durability of the media, the same plot also can be run through a xerographic copier to make distribution copies.
 Another feature of FAX-ivity software is its ability to convert ASCII files to the format required by the 7124S. This allows the user to convert ASCII documents from word-processing and other programs to print or fax on the 7124S. Also, the view utility has been enhanced from the previous version to provide increased capability while viewing documents received, scanned or AutoCAD generated.
 In addition to performing standard facsimile functions, FAX-ivity software makes it possible to customize operations. For example, faxes can automatically be retrieved, archived, broadcast or sent on a time- delayed basis to take advantage of lower long-distance rates. Also, documents can be scanned into the system and viewed on screen at 50, 25 and 12 percent scales. FAX-ivity software also provides a monthly report listing of all on-line activity.
 Xerox FAX-ivity software is used in conjunction with a Small Computer Systems Interface (SCSI) board. It is compatible with PCs running MS-DOS.
 The Xerox 7124S Engineering Facsimile/Copier with FAX-ivity software is available immediately from the Xerox Engineering Systems direct sales force. The cost is $15,495. Current owners of 7124S facsimile machines will receive the upgraded software at no cost.
 The 7124S Premium Top-Coated Thermal Media is available from the Xerox Engineering Systems direct sales force and authorized Xerox dealers.
 The 7124S is covered under the Xerox Total Satisfaction Guarantee. Under the guarantee, customers decide for themselves whether the product is performing to their satisfaction. If they are not satisfied, Xerox will replace the capabilities -- up to three years from the date of delivery.
 Xerox Engineering Systems is the world's largest supplier of engineering copiers, wide-format printers and fax machines, raster plotters and engineering document management systems.
