Some manufacturers have produced devices considered multifunction peripherals that include several office devices in one package. One such device is the Xerox Document HomeCentre, a multifunction device aimed at the personal use home market. The HomeCentre can scan and copy in color as well as function as a printer. Xerox Document HomeCentre ink prints in color or black and white.
Xerox Document HomeCentre ink cartridges are comprised of four-color inkjet technology. Xerox is more commonly known for its solid ink technology, such as with the Phaser 8400 ink printer. Media that the printer can handle includes plain paper, envelopes, labels, A4 or transparencies. Xerox Document HomeCentre inkjet cartridges print at 600 by 600 dpi.
A unique feature of the HomeCentre is the scanner perched on top of the device. Users can remove the scanner to scan materials that don't fit into an 8.5-inch by 11-inch sheet feeder. This handheld feature is certain to find many special applications with small businesses that have this requirement. Included software comes on CD-ROM and is comprised of drivers, Pagis Pro97 and TextBridge Pro 96. Pagis is for the scanner and TextBridge is an OCR application.
Lacking a fax machine may put off some potential buyers of the HomeCentre, who are comparing multifunction office machines. The removable scanner may be just a novel enough idea to find purchasers with specific needs. The Xerox Document HomeCentre inkjet printer will fulfill the needs of those looking for a basic printer that produces good results.
Multifunction devices have been growing in popularity since the mid-nineties. They provide full office machine coverage to small business and home office users. The HomeCentre is a low-cost example of just such a device, although lacking a fax machine may prove to be too much of a deficit. The removable scanner head may be the one redeeming feature that will attract specific buyers to the device.
