The future of fax.

MAHWAH, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb. 10, 1995--Just as fax technology has changed the way we work in the 1990s, it will continue to have a great impact on the way we work and live in the year 2000.

According to Sharp Electronics Corp., the leader in domestic fax unit sales since 1987(a), research indicates that the following fax products will have the most impact on the next two to five years:

o Connective/Multifunctional Facsimiles -- New facsimile technology will yet again change the way we work. Emerging now, connective/multifunctional machines allow users to connect their fax directly to PCs or LANs for use as a printer, scanner and fax. Users can scan documents in, send and receive facsimilies, and print documents, with one machine.

o Low-Cost Laser Plain Paper Facsimilies -- Laser plain paper facsimilies will continue to be the way to go for businesses as models become more affordable. This year, PPFs will be available at a manufacturer suggested list price below $1,900. By the turn of the century, laser PPF machines are likely to carry a list price under $1,000.

o Standalone Facsimiles -- Although many units will connect to PCs or a network, the market for standalone facsimilies will remain strong. Standalone units will continue to be very reliable and provide businesses with functions that improve user productivity, while lowering operating costs for high traffic fax centers.
