Imagine seamlesslyintegrating color pages into a presentation or effortlessly scanningand routing color documents to e-mail accounts or folders. No morewaiting for off-site scanning or preparation. And no more payingexpensive per-page prices for occasional color printing.Control the cost of color even further with Color Usage Restriction,an authentication function that requires users to enter theirnetwork password to utilize color.Enjoy seamless integration of businesscolor for reports, charts, photos and more.Streamlined Document DistributionThe Aficio 3224C lets you speed communications, enhance productivityand reduce costs the digital way with its built-in functions.Scan-to-Email scans and converts black & white or full-colordocuments to JPEG, TIFF or PDF files and then sends themsimultaneously over the Internet or intranet to up to 100 e-mailaddresses. Real-time e-mail address lookup of the LDAP server databasemakes sending files even easier. An additional 2,000 e-mail addressstorage capacity plus the ability to manually enter e-mail addressesprovides virtually unlimited sending capacity. Scan-to-Email also allowsrecipients to print in color reducing the use of dial-up fax services.Scan-to-Folder boosts productivity of networked workgroups bysending images directly to a Windows network folder. Up to 1,000shared-folder designations can be stored.Scan-to-FTP circumvents file-size limitations on e-mail attachmentsand minimizes network traffic by sending scanned images directly toan FTP server. Files may be shared outside the network and betweendifferent operating systems so any user with access rights can browsethe FTP directory and conveniently add, delete or download documents.Network TWAIN captures black & white or color hard-copy imagesin digital form. Using TWAIN, you can edit documents on your host PC,incorporate them into other electronic documents, or save them forfuture use.Fax Capability is optional and features ultra-fast transmissionspeeds for walk-up or faxing directly from your desktop.
