Lexmark adds touchscreens to enterprise printers

Web admin tool released

Article comments

Just in case you needed any more proof that touchscreens are going about as viral as a talented cat on YouTube, Lexmark on Tuesday announced a dozen new workgroup printer models, and "touch" is the star of the show. Lexmark has announced new models across its X792, C792, X925 and C925 series of printers, all featuring varying sizes of colour touchscreens that the company claims will give users more productive access to the features they need.

The X792 family of multifunction color laser printers for workgroups, for instance, features a 10.2-inch touchscreen, which Lexmark claims is the largest in its class. The screen's generous real estate can be put to good use as a print preview window for selecting documents or specific pages within a document to print. Lexmark says the X792 family features the fastest print and copy speeds in its category with 50 pages per minute (PPM) and has six configurable models, including one that offers hole punch finishing capabilities.

Scaling down a little, the C792 family of colour laser printers are single function versions of the X792 line, featuring a 4.3-inch touchscreen and a "flash interface... similar to a smart phone for intuitive navigation." The C792 family also has four configurable models, with media handling and input/output options.

The X925de and C925de round out Lexmark's new hardware for businesses with A3 (11-inch by 17-inch) printing needs. The former features the X792 family's 10.2-inch display, while the latter is the only single function A3 colour printer in its class with a 4.3-inch touchscreen.

On the software front, Lexmark also released Markvision Enterprise, a web-based tool that lets IT admins monitor anywhere from a handful to 20,000 devices, regardless of manufacturer. For bonus points, a permission system allows admins to grant access to other employees based on their level of responsibility.

Lexmark says that its new printers will be available through channel partners and at Lexmark.com. Markvision Enterprise should ship later this year.
