Lanier LP550C

The fast and flexible Lanier LP550C Series Color Laser Printer delivers exactly what marketing departments, advertising agencies and other graphics-intensive environments need to produce more full-color documents in-house and find smarter, more effective ways to handle color workloads. This versatile system prints anything and everything: pre-proofs, comps, presentations, booklets, brochures, expense reports, forms, and more. Its superior speed lets you pick up the pace, while its outstanding color quality ensures attention-grabbing output. Bottom line: the Lanier LP550C Series puts the power back in your hands, enabling you to maintain complete control over image quality, turnaround time, operating costs and productivity.

·  Achieve maximum clarity and sharpness for photographic-quality prints and smoother gradations. This printer offers true 1200 x1200 dpi resolution which many other printers in this class simply can’t match.
·  Choose the right resolution for any color document. With 4-bit color and interpolated resolution up to 9600 x 600 dpi, it is easy to optimize color quality for shadow detail and skin tones.
·  Print sharp, crisp photographic-quality documents quickly and easily with Glossy Mode.
·  Emulate the look of output from other devices, including offset printers and popular laser printers. Plus, support for PANTONE®, ColorSync, ICM and custom ICC profiles provides even more control over your prints.
·  Sharpen images with new PxP™ toner. Its wider color gamut and smaller particles enable the Lanier LP550C Series to capture subtle changes in color and tone.
·  Create reports, plans, presentations, brochures, and more with 50 pagesper- minute speed for full-color, black & white or mixed output.
·  Handle larger file sizes, complex applications, specialized fonts and other graphics-intensive demands with a high-performance 1 GHz Intel Celeron® Controller.
·  Enable instant reprints and other convenient print-on-demand capabilities while increasing font storage space with a standard 80 GB Hard Disk Drive (HDD).
·  Minimize waiting with a first color print time of eight seconds, or seven seconds for black & white. Warm-up time is less than a minute.
·  Let everyone share a single device without constantly reloading paper. This printer holds up to 3,200 sheets for demanding workloads.
·  Reduce the risk of misplaced output. The 4-Bin Mailbox provides shared access to the printer while keeping documents separate.
·  Print postcards, direct mail and other documents on heavy stock. All paper trays accept weights up to 140 lb. Index in simplex mode and 90 lb. Index in duplex mode.
·  Print packaging comps and proof sheets up to 11" x 17". For full-bleed 11" x 17" proofs, use the Bypass Tray, which prints sizes up to 12" x 18".
·  Energize event promotions with full-color banners. The LP550C Series can print banners 12" wide and up to 49.6" long.
·  Reduce the risk of errors and reprints with a convenient driver that lets users select the correct paper weight for any job.
·  Produce high-impact, full-color training, education and marketing materials with folding and saddle-stitching using the 1,000-Sheet Booklet Finisher.
·  Staple reports, plans and proposals with the 3,000-Sheet Finisher. Add the Hole Punch Unit so output can be inserted directly into three-ring binders.

·  Minimize interruptions with long-lasting, high-yield consumables.
·  Ensure accountability for every color page you print. Precise job tracking supports accurate chargeback and billing.
·  Protect confidential documents even if the hard drive is stolen with the optional DataOverwriteSecurity System (DOSS). It overwrites latent data on the hard drive after every job.
·  Strengthen information security with an HDD encryption option that makes it virtually impossible for hackers to gain access to stored files.
·  Make printer management much more convenient with instant e-mail alerts for administrators when the printer runs low on supplies or an error occurs.
