Compact and affordable MB491+LP multifunction printer delivers advanced features and functionality to small- and medium-sized workgroups

Mount Laurel, NJ (October 9, 2012) — OKI Data Americas announces the company’s latest addition to its expanding line of award-winning A4 monochrome multifunction printers (MFPs) with the launch of the MB491+LP. The fast, full-featured device offers copy, print and fax capabilities, plus a legal-sized platen scanner for optimal productivity within office environments that produce legal-sized documents with regularity, particularly within the government and education markets. The MB491+LP is ideal for small- and medium-sized businesses (SMB), producing professional-looking documents at impressive speeds – all at a competitive price-point and low total cost of ownership (TCO).

The MB491+LP delivers fast print speeds, color and monochrome scanning with scan-to capabilities, and duplex print/copy standard, affording SMBs a cost-effective, all-in-one solution. Equipped with standard multi-tasking functionality and legal-size scanning capabilities, combined with network connectivity, the MB491+LP allows users to share documents with ease, improving productivity and efficiency within the workplace.

“OKI Data Americas is excited to introduce its first desktop A4 monochrome MFP with legal-platen to our already broad portfolio of award-winning and innovative printing solutions,” said Hiroyuki Fukushima, Director of Non-Impact Printer Product Marketing for OKI Data Americas. “The advanced features and functionality of the MB491+LP meet the needs of small- and mid-sized workgroups, delivering enhanced print, copy, scan and fax capabilities at an extremely competitive price.”

In addition to the legal-size platen scanner, the MB491+LP includes Nuance (R) utilities to organize scanned files with ease. Users can better control office security by granting or restricting access to individuals or groups through PIN identification codes accessible by the MFP’s control panel. The MB491+LP’s reliability and long-lasting consumables provide tremendous value and an exceptional return on investment.
