Panasonic is a major manufacturer of printers and photocopiers, and the Panasonic DP-3030 is a relatively new addition to the company’s long list of products. It has Panasonic’s “Departmental-Class” Digital Systems technology and the Panasonic DP-3030 offers printing, copying, scanning and faxing facility all combined into one chassis.
The DP-3030 offers high level WORKiO models that offer around 30 pages per minute with the first-copy time of 4.5 seconds. It has a 600 x 600 dpi resolution and 256-level grayscale that enhances the quality of each copy unlike other copiers that offer better results with the initial copies and deteriorate in the subsequent copying jobs. It has ultra fine toner cartridges and carrier particles that are 20% smaller and thus offer better image quality. Concurrent Copy is a unique feature of Panasonic’s DP-3030 that enables the printer to handle up to 12 prints and copy jobs at a time. An ethernet interface is available for the copier as well. The standard paper holder can accommodate 500 sheets along with 50 in the automatic paper loader.
The print function of Panasonic DP-3030 is equally great. It can easily handle 30 pages per minute and offers the standard 600 x 600 dpi resolution with 256-level grayscale. Image enhancement technology can enhance the image to 1200 dpi thus making the print job stand out and making images and graphics crisper and clearer. The printer provides genuine Adobe(R), PCL5e/6 and PostScript 3(R) as an integrated capability and the built-in automatic duplex unit quickens up the printing speed. PC suite enables users to employ printing features of the Panasonic DP-3030 in an improved manner. They can view the queue and manage and prioritize printing jobs by using different features of the software.
Network scanning facility is available on the Panasonic DP-3030 with a complete support of TIFF, JPEG and PDF formats. Network connectivity features enable quick scanning of all documents besides the scan-to-folder, scan-to-email and scan-to-FTP formats. A document management system is built in and offers a one-stop management solution of printing, copying, faxing and scanning jobs.
Fax features employ a 33.6 kbps modem with a speed of three seconds per page and the Super G3 faxing option. Duplex faxing is also available along with paperless faxing that sends image files email attachments which can be opened and displayed on the image viewer. Panasonic DP-3030 is ideal for medium level offices as it provides a good printing speed and higher quality image processing. Even larger companies can easily use Panasonic DP-3030 as a primary or secondary image processing machine.
