Lexmark Europe has unveiled several new printers and All-In-One (AIO) products for consumers and small office/home office (SOHO) professionals. At its annual conference in Lisbon last week the company also introduced a new ink technology that combines for the first time dye-based and pigmented inks.
Lexmark claims that, when used on its own photo paper, the new ink resists fading from light, enabling consumers and professionals to better- preserve treasured photographs and keepsakes.
The ink technology is available in the new X5250 printer, which boasts photo capabilities with six-colour and borderless printing. The X5250 can print up to 14 pages per minute (ppm) in colour and can generate up to 20 ppm in black.
At the conference Lexmark also launched several new laser printers for the professional market, but the company believes laser printing will become less important in the future.
