Epson Launches Cost-saving Workforce Pro WF-C869R RIPS printer For reduced printing costs

Epson Launches Cost-saving Workforce Pro WF-C869R RIPS printer
For reduced printing costs

Sydney, 15 August 2017 – Epson Australia has announced the launch of its new Replaceable Ink Pack System (RIPS) printer, the WorkForce Pro WF-C869R, a unit that delivers high-speed and high-quality printing while drastically reducing printing costs with its high capacity ink packs for businesses.

The high page yield and extremely low cost per page of the WorkForce Pro WF-C869R can help businesses significantly minimise running costs when compared with a laser printer. The WF-C869R printer’s revolutionary Replaceable Ink Packs comes with the option of standard ink packs that deliver uninterrupted printing – up to 22,500 pages in black and 22,000 pages in colour, as well as large ink packs printing up to 86,000 pages in black and 84,000 pages in colour before needing to be replaced, to help businesses save on running costs, increase productivity and reduce their impact on the environment.

The WorkForce Pro WF-C869R is equipped with Epson’s PrecisionCore technology to print at fast speeds of up to 35ppm for both black and colour, at 4,800 x 1,200 dpi resolution for special media and 600 x 600 dpi for prints on standard media. As the PrecisionCore printhead does not use heat to print, the WF- C869R requires no warm up time and has a fast first page out of 6 seconds.

The WorkForce Pro WF-C869R uses less consumables and generates less packaging waste compared to laser printers, which helps to maintain office productivity with less printer maintenance and downtime. The ultra long-life consumables of the WF-C869R only require periodic replacement and comprise just the ink packs, maintenance box and paper pick-up rollers Typical laser printers, on the other hand, require replacement of bulky toner cartridges, photoreceptors, waste toner boxes, transfer units and fusing units.

The versatile WF-C869R printer can print on a wide range of paper types, sizes and weights, including envelopes, from 64 to 256 gsm. Its rear tray supports the use of special media such as photo papers for photo quality pictures, and different sized paper can be placed in the different cassettes for automatic selection. Epson’s dual CIS technology allows duplex scanning in a single pass for improved speed and office productivity.

General Manager, Business Division at Epson Australia, Craig Heckenberg, said, “The new WorkForce Pro WF-C869R brings a new level of productivity and cost efficiency to its users. Epson RIPS printers also continue to surpass laser printers in terms of the lower environmental impact and greater cost savings they bring, as well as the reduced overall total cost of ownership with the minimal maintenance required.”

With Epson Connect, documents can be printed directly to smart devices or online cloud storage services via Epson iPrint, and scans can be sent directly through email or cloud storage services. Near Field Communication (NFC) enables users to conveniently print or scan just by touching a compatible device to the printer.

Epson Device Admin enables easy monitoring, managing and configuring the printer fleet within a network. Epson Print Admin provides the features required to monitor and manage printer usage while ensuring secure or confidential printouts are not left at the printers. The WorkForce Pro WF-C869R printer is also compatible with 3rd party software, Papercut MF, to provide similar functionalities as Epson Print Admin.

The Epson WorkForce Pro WF-C869R is available through all authorised Epson channel partners and resellers now. For more information visit: http://www.epson.com.au/products/BusinessPrinters/WorkForce_WF-C869R.asp

Outlander returns to Foxtel next month, with the third season of the much-loved drama airing express from the US from September 11 on showcase, Mondays at 7.30pm AEST, or stream on Foxtel Now.

The third season of 13 episodes is based upon Voyager, the third of eight books in Diana Gabaldon’s international best-selling Outlander series, developed for television by executive producer Ronald D. Moore (Battlestar Galactica, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, Star Trek: The Next Generation.

The new season picks up right after Claire (Caitriona Balfe) travels through the stones to return to her life in 1948. Now pregnant with Jamie’s (Sam Heughan) child, she struggles with the fallout of her sudden reappearance and its effect on her marriage to her first husband, Frank (Tobias Menzies). Meanwhile, in the 18th century, Jamie suffers from the aftermath of his doomed last stand at the historic battle of Culloden, as well as the loss of Claire. As the years pass, Jamie and Claire attempt to make a life apart from one another, each haunted by the memory of their lost love. The budding possibility that Claire can return to Jamie in the past breathes new hope into Claire’s heart… as well as new doubt. Separated by continents and centuries, Claire and Jamie must find their way back to each other. As always, adversity, mystery, and adventure await them on the path to reunion. And the question remains: When they find each other, will they be the same people who parted at the standing stones, all those years ago?

Diana Gabaldon’s eight-book Outlander series has sold more than 28 million copies worldwide and all the books have graced the New York Times best-sellers list. The Outlander series spans the genres of history, science fiction, romance and adventure in one amazing tale. The second season of Outlander won the Critics’ Choice Award for Most Bingeworthy Show, and four People’s Choice Awards, including Favourite TV Show.

Ronald D. Moore, Maril Davis, Matthew B. Roberts, Toni Graphia, Anne Kenney and Andy Harries serve as executive producers of Outlander, which is produced by Tall Ship Productions, Story Mining & Supply Company and Left Bank Pictures in association with Sony Pictures Television.

The marathon third season production filmed across ten months in its home base in Scotland, followed by Cape Town, South Africa, to shoot pivotal sea voyage scenes.

Resuming their roles from season two are Sophie Skelton as Brianna Randall and Richard Rankin as Roger Wakefield, while new cast members to be introduced include David Berry as John William Grey, CĂ©sar Domboy as Fergus, Lauren Lyle as Marsali MacKimmie, and John Bell as Young Ian Murray.

Berry’s character Lord John is a steadfast and honourable British subject, torn between a finely-honed sense of familial duty and a strong moral compass of right and wrong. He is boyishly handsome with an upper class rearing — the consummate gentleman. However, a scandal from his past has relegated Lord John to an undesirable position as governor of a desolate prison in Northern Scotland and an unrequited love makes him a prisoner of his own passion.
