TALLY MAKES ASSERTIVE BID FOR MAINSTREAM COLOUR LASER PRINTER MARKET Tuesday 10 April 2001 PDF Print Expansive Tailor-made Lineup Optimised for Business Applications, Graphics and Proofing Tally Ltd, the computer printer specialist, today announced the launch of its colour laser range, setting its sights on the fast-growing and highly competitive laser markets with a total of six new colour models with speeds of 6 PPM (full colour) and 24 PPM (monochrome). The development of these printers has been derived from the consideration of different applications in different markets. Testament to this is the division of the range into two distinct marketplaces: general business users and graphics professionals. Managing Director at Tally, Robin Edwardes, says “With many companies competing to provide the latest technology, it's vital that discerning users keep a clear head and focus on what equipment is actually needed to do the job. We are making colour easy for the general business user, whilst offering the graphics professional a feature-rich product series. It’s also important to recognise the service and support infrastructure that a particular manufacturer can offer to maximise investment in colour laser printing.” With the new range, Tally is offering the broadest range of colour lasers available from any manufacturer, with two distinct products aimed at general business users of colour, and four products aimed at the professional colour graphics market. Free installation and onsite warranty is provided directly from Tally.

This offers significant benefits by minimising the time data transfers across the network to the printer. Tally colour lasers are accompanied by an auto-installer CD. This feature automates the set-up process and streamlines installation of the printers either as standalones or on networks. It also enables extremely easy colour matching for the general business user. Tally Network Printer Manager When configured with an Ethernet 10/100Base-T interface, Tally’s colour laser printers can access the utility, Tally Network Printer Manager. Compatible with the industry standard HP Web JetAdmin and accessible via any web browser, this utility allows remote printer installation, status monitoring, configuration, firmware flash updating and troubleshooting over even the largest networks. Tally Printer Manager includes e-mail notification of printer errors, printer status and job completion. This utility also features WebPanel, an “on-screen” printer control panel that functions exactly like the one installed on the printer, but is accessible from the user’s desktop or from anywhere on the network.
