DEVELOP’s ineo 958 embodies entry level professional quality printing

DEVELOP South Africa, a wholly owned Bidvest company has launched the new ineo 958. Attendees and clients that were present at the launch were very impressed with the workhorse performance of this new device. ‘The ineo 958 meets the clients’ demand for an affordable but powerful printing system that brings a professional production printing performance to in-house printrooms and digital printshops,’ commented Marc Pillay, CEO at DEVELOP South Africa. ‘It is over 25 percent faster than its predecessor model and combines that speed and 1200 x 1200dpi output quality with a high degree of media performance.’

In-house printrooms and digital print service providers are in need of a solution that delivers speedy, reliable performance with excellent value for money. This reflects the growing demand for professional quality monochrome printing in production environments, which the new ineo 958 by DEVELOP is designed to meet. Dubbed the multifunctional printer (MFP) on steroids, this system offers enhanced performance and excellent productivity with convenient media flexibility, operability and scalability.

The ineo 958 is 95ppm fast and offers a number of new features, such as the new dual colour scanner that has a capacity of 300 sheets and scans at speeds of up to 240ipm in a single pass. The 150-sheet bypass tray brings greater media flexibility, for example, by allowing banners to be printed in-house, and the maximum paper capacity of 6650 sheets allows high volume print jobs to be completed without paper refills. In addition, the enhanced features do not come at the expense of compactness as the ineo 958’s small footprint means that this production printing system will easily fit into limited spaces.

The system has an easy-to-use touchscreen and optional upright operating panel to ensure good usability. The professional finishing solutions on offer include a 100-sheet stapling function, booklet making, post insertion and a Z-fold unit that is integrated into the finisher to save space. The ineo 958’s media flexibility – 52-300gsm, SRA3 as standard, mixplex/mixmedia and an intelligent paper catalogue – enables this device to deliver on a wide range of print jobs and increases productivity.

The OpenAPI interface supports third-party applications such as, YSoft SafeQ and Nuance eCopy Sharescan. Morevoer, the IWS technology and near field communication (NFC) authentication give the ineo 958 a high degree of scalability, making it easy to integrate into an existing workflow and structure.

The ineo+258 supports printing using mobile and cloud connectivity as it is equipped for NFC. It also supports printing via AirPrint, Mopria, Google Cloud Print, WiFi and direct printing from any location, provided the mobile device is connected to the internet.

A function like convert+share, allows you to scan a document in various file formats and send the file to whatever destination you want, like Google Docs, Evernote or Microsoft SharePoint. Furthermore, the store+find feature helps you locate any document easily and quickly through a keyword or full text search facility.

There are various means of authentication, such as passwords, finger-vein scanning, contactless smart cards or embedded NFC authentication available on the system. Security features such as IPsec, S/MIME e-mail encryption and IP filtering also make sure every form of system communication or document transfer is secure and all data stored on the system’s hard disk is protected from unauthorised access by data encryption technology and, if required – data erasure.

The system’s low energy consumption, economical running costs and intelligent environmental concept have earned it an ENERGY STAR rating, which makes it good for an organisation’s carbon footprint as well as the balance sheet.

‘The ineo 958 embodies the simplicity of an office device with the durability and capability of a production device which serves a great need with the local market,’ concluded Pillay.
