Section 1: Evaluating Workgroup Multifunction Printers

Evaluate Productivity

In addition to actual print engine speed, consider the factors that affect
overall throughput.
to support the demands of your busiest departments? Is the device appropriately
sized for the entire workgroup? Can important features be used simultaneously, or are
employees forced to wait for the device to become "free"? Is the system designed to
minimize network traffi c? Can device functions be monitored from users' desktops
and/or at the device?
How the WorkCentre 5700
Series exceeds the productivity
The productivity of the WorkCentre 5700 Series
starts with seven output-engine-speed options,
which deliver output speeds from up to 35
ppm black-and-white to up to 90 ppm black-
and-white — ensuring the right fi t for a wide
array of offi ce environments and workgroups.
Document handling speed is notable as well,
with a 100-sheet DADH (75-sheet DADH on
WorkCentre 5735) that scans single-sided
documents at 60 or 80 ipm. With FPOTs ranging
from as fast as 2.7 seconds to 4.7 seconds,
users won't have to wait long for their jobs to
get started, either.
Network performance
Performance isn't limited to raw document
feeds and speeds. All network-enabled
WorkCentre 5700 Series devices feature a
new 1.2 GHz high-performance processor plus
an 160 GB hard drive. It's ready and able to
process your large, complex print and scan jobs.
In addition, 10/100/1000Base-TX Ethernet
connectivity comes standard for shared net-
work printing, and optional adapters for IEEE
802.5 (Token Ring) and 10Base5, 802.11a/b/g
wireless Ethernet ensure you can connect
WorkCentre 5700 Series devices according to
your company's specifi c needs.

Are the device's scanning and faxing features powerful enough
The WorkCentre 5700 Series devices are easy
on your network as well. With RAM collation,
fi les are sent over the network just once no
matter how many sets are printed. Job pipelin-
ing allows the device to process print jobs even
if the print engine is busy with an earlier print
job — thus optimizing system performance by
avoiding delays during job processing.
Image quality
With up to 4800 x 600 dpi interpolated copy
resolution and up to 1200 x 1200 dpi print
resolution, the WorkCentre 5700 Series devices
generate high-quality copies and prints with
crisp text and images. To ensure that printed
output meets users' high expectations, Xerox
also supports multiple Page Description
Languages (PDLs) including PostScript
emulation, XPS, PCL
and HP-GL2.
The new WorkCentre controller's advanced
design also helps avoid bottlenecks at the front
panel. Concurrent operation means you won't
have to wait until a long print job is complete
to program a fax, scan or copy job. By keeping
the front panel available for programming while
the print engine is busy, users stay productive
and avoid idle time waiting for the device. Scan
and fax jobs can be programmed and executed
without waiting for the print engine to become
available, while newly programmed copy jobs
will join the job queue and be executed when
earlier jobs are completed.

Monitoring system status
With the WorkCentre 5700 Series devices,
up-to-date information on every job — print,
copy, scan, email or fax, plus in-depth device
information — is always at a user's fi ngertips.
Whether at the device or from the desktop,
users can manage documents and jobs through
an integrated job queue with a few mouse-clicks
or button pushes.
