The new Brother Mono Laser Series that means Business

IMG_20160804_112944 modified

Brother International Philippines Corp. has launched an all-new mono laser series that delivers high reliability, value and productivity for businesses. Designed in Japan, the four models in the new range comprise two mono laser printers, the HL-L5100DN and HL-L6400DW, and two Multi-Function Centres (MFCs), the MFC-L5900DW and MFC-L6900DW, which serve high print volume office environments.

Multi-Function Centres (MFCs), the MFC-L5900DW and MFC-L6900DW

Brother has enhanced the new series significantly based on customer feedback, achieving several firsts in the process. This family is the first mono laser range by Brother to print up to 50 pages per minute (ppm)¹. This is also the first Brother mono laser series to feature a new heavy duty Automatic Document Feeder with an 80-sheet capacity, a 60 percent improvement over the previous series². Maximum input capacity has improved by 150 percent to a maximum paper input of 2,650 pages¹, another ‘first’, while the dual CIS supports 100 images per minute (ipm) scanner², another new introduction.

IMG_20160804_121228 modified

“The new mono laser series offers reliable performance that Brother is known for, coupled with significant innovations to meet the expectations of a modern workplace,” Brother Philippines President Glenn Hocson said. “Businesses are looking for user-friendly, cost-efficient solutions with outstanding high-volume, quality output that can scale as they grow. These Brother laser printers and Multi-Function Centres provide an excellent combination of dependability, versatility and security to meet office needs.”

Improved total cost of ownership (TCO)

Brother’s latest mono laser family is built for high efficiency and cost effectiveness. The laser printers and MFCs support monthly print cycles of up to 150,000 pages per month¹, while an ultra high-yield toner¹ enables up to 20,000^ printed pages with cost savings in mind. Compared to the previous mono laser range, the new family has raised maximum paper output capacity by 600 percent, and expanded toner yield by 66 percent for vastly improved TCO.

 

Superior productivity and ease of use

MFC-L6900DW Situ3

Productivity is a key feature of the new series. High volume print jobs are easily managed, without the need for frequent paper reloads. The default paper tray can hold up to 520 sheets¹, and optional upgrades of either two additional paper trays or a tower tray provide businesses with a total input capacity of as many as 2,080 sheets¹. A 4-bin Mailbox³ with stacker and sorter makes even easier to share a printer as bins can be assigned to individual users or groups.

 

Simplified business operations

The new models are easily managed over the network with Brother’s BRAdmin Professional Software. This software includes a suite of security solutions to ensure that documents remain confidential. It is also a network management tool that supports remote configurations and the monitoring of useful information such as page count, toner and drum status. Print costs can be more controlled with the option of setting print quotas for users, while instant notification of printer downtime lets customers attend to the problem quickly.

 

Customized workflow solutions

As each business is unique and may operate under unpredictable conditions, Brother has developed flexible workflow solutions that can be customized if required. Brother Special Solutions Customization (SSC) enables Brother to collaborate with a business on modifying Brother products for specific business needs. The Brother Solutions Interface (BSI¹), a web-based service platform, aims to improve customers’ productivity and efficiency by allowing software developers to create custom solutions easily.

 

Mobile convenience

Brother also supports the convenient integration of mobile devices into the workflow. Brother iPrint&Scan, Apple AirPrint® and Google Cloud Print enable users to print directly from their mobile devices. JPEG and PDF documents can be printed, while faxes and copies can be previewed. Apple products can also save documents to iCloud.

HL-L6400DW Situ2 a

Buyers Laboratory (BLI), a widely-respected testing and resource company, has evaluated several of the new Brother models.  BLI noted the significant business value of the new machines:  “The Brother models offer competitive to lower than average cost of ownership,” BLI’s Director of Office Equipment Product Analysis Marlene Orr said.

BLI recognized the machines’ reliability, particularly in high-volume printing.  “Even during peak periods, users won’t see any noticeable slowdowns in output speeds,” Orr added.  She also noted the ease of use: “The smartphone-like interface on the touch-screen models reduces the learning curve, and NFC connectivity eliminates guesswork for mobile printing, offers badge authentication and a quick link to troubleshooting information.”  In addition, BLI pointed to robust scan features that boost worker productivity, and simple and affordable sharing of content and collaboration in the cloud with Brother WebConnect+.

PLDT opens premier Data Center in Makati CBD, Biggest in PH

maxresdefault

Leading telecoms and digital services provider PLDT has opened the country’s biggest data center at Makati City, the country’s premier business district, to serve a wide range of organizations, particularly those handling vital data such as banks, business process outsourcing (BPO) firms, IT and content providers and government institutions.

Set up by PLDT subsidiary ePLDT, the newest VITRO Data Center sits on a nearly two-hectare property with 3,600-rack capacity.  It is equipped with systems and facilities to guarantee continuous operations, ensuring that businesses can utilize robust and scalable digital infrastructure, as well as world-class 24/7 technical support capabilities.

Vitro-Makati-Story

 

“PLDT is investing heavily in our VITRO data centers as we believe that these facilities are one of the basic building blocks of the country’s digital economy. This data center will be a vital resource for companies as they ramp up their own digital services,” said PLDT Chairman and CEO Manuel V. Pangilinan.

 

The new earthquake-resistant, purpose-built data center in Makati is built on solid ground without seismic faults within its proximity. In addition, special architectural techniques and materials planning were implemented to provide the data center with fire-rated concrete walls and flood-protected design.

 

As a result, VITRO Makati is rated to withstand earthquakes up to intensity eight in the Richter scale. The data center is also compliant with global design standards.

IMG_20160728_114734

 

“’PLDT recognizes how vital it is for enterprises to ensure stable operations despite changes in the external environment. The need for scalable and secure hosting facilities to house and manage critical platforms is also growing in importance as the enterprise becomes more data-driven as a result of continuous digital transformation initiatives,” said PLDT Executive Vice President and ePLDT President and CEO Eric R. Alberto.

 

To address the growing concern over digital security, VITRO Makati offers one of the most secure and impenetrable structures in the Philippines with an eight-layer security design, guaranteeing that data and applications will always be protected.

 

Each major component of the facility is configured with redundant counterparts in place that seamlessly operate to anticipate adverse events, including power generators and  Uninterrupted Power Supply (UPS) units, among others.

 

As part of the VITRO network of data centers, VITRO Makati also serves as a carrier-neutral Internet Exchange facility that provides numerous IP peering services, enabling access to local and international content.

IMG_20160728_114349

VITRO Makati is also a Nexcenter-certified facility, allowing its clients to use globally standardized Nexcenter services of world leader NTT Com at some 140 locations in 84 cities of 19 countries, in addition to NTT Com’s Arcstar Universal One private-network service, which is already available in the Philippines and which is largely used by the country’s BPO industry.

“As the world becomes even more digitally connected, Filipino enterprises must leverage on new technologies to ensure the security and resilience of their operations.  PLDT’s digital platforms can enable enterprises to take advantage of disruptive technologies, secure their operations, and promote growth in their businesses,” said Alberto.

Cinematic experience minus the cinema

The Lenovo TheaterMax technology gets an exciting update with the arrival of the TheaterMax Controller. The controller seamlessly integrates with the smartphones and the ANT VR Goggle for an immersive way to enjoy content, and is very easy to use. Compact and therefore easy to bring when one travels, the controller provides the flexibility for users to use it single-handedly or with both hands. Users can switch between audio/video mode and mouse mode whenever necessary.controller headset.jpg Both the VIBE K5 and VIBE K5 Plus are equipped with Dolby Atmos®, which gives a more in-depth experience through its surround sound technology.

Meanwhile, the VIBE K5 Note features a state-of-the-art audio codec, 3-mic audio input system and audio enhancement.

 

Uncompromising camera and display for viewing luxury

In terms of the devices’ display features, users are in for a visual treat. VIBE K5 offers a vivid and wide-view 5” HD, the VIBE K5 Plus has a 5” Full HD 1080p and the VIBE K5 Note impresses with its large 5.5” Full HD 1080p display.

All three have what it takes to capture the best photos and play the finest videos. VIBE K5 Note features a 13MP PDAF rear camera that promotes a super-fast autofocus function for capturing special moments as they happen. Its 8MP fixed-focus front camera is also made to deliver uncompromising camera performance.

Equally high performing are the 5MP front cameras of the VIBE K5 and the VIBE K5 Plus. These two also each have a 13MP autofocus rear camera with LED flash.

Unleash Yourself: Achieve your fitness goals with Samsung’s all-new Gear Fit2 and Gear IconX

Wearables

Anyone who’s tried working out knows that it’s easier said than done. It’s already hard enough to set aside ample time and reserve so much energy into staying fit, but it gets even harder when things are holding them back from giving it their best.

Any fitness animal knows the struggle is real when they need to switch songs through their smartphone just to get the right song that keeps them pumped up for their workout, all on top of having limited movement because of earphone cords that always get in the way. Not only that, but anyone who’s tried keeping track of their progress know that looking through their smartphone risk tripping, especially when running.

Luckily, Samsung, the leader in tech innovations, has created the perfect fitness companions. The all-new Gear Fit2 and Gear IconX were made not only to help reach their fitness goals, but to keep pushing for greater performance, too.

Recently, the smartphone has become an essential companion for fitness animals during their workout. It allows them to listen to music, track their routine and even their progress. However, despite being helpful, there’s no denying that one of the biggest problems that fitness animals face is the trouble of lugging around a heavy smartphone with them during their workouts, ultimately distracting them from achieving their fitness goals.

Gear Fit2_Product

The all-new Samsung Gear Fit2 is a GPS sports band that promises a bulk-free and advanced fitness experience. There’s no need to bring around a heavy smartphone for progress tracking because the Gear Fit2 will help keep you motivated to outdo your last fitness record – may it be in terms of length of time, number of reps, or calories burned.

With its stand-alone GPS tracking capabilities, the Gear Fit2 can help fitness animals easily monitor not only location, but also their burned calories, distance, speed, route, time, hours of sleep, and stress levels to keep them fit and healthy.

With its Social Challenge capabilities, the Gear Fit2 also allows fitness animals to challenge one other into doing fitness routines that can help create motivational friendly competition amongst friends, pushing themselves more and outdo their best records.

Gear Fit2_Lifestyle

Worried about water or sweat breaking your device? Don’t be. The Gear Fit2, with its IP68 rating, is water and dust resistant, all wrapped into a sleek and lightweight band-type design compatible with any style.

Thanks to other features available on the Gear Fit2 like a 2GB storage capacity to store up to 500 songs, and a curved Super AMOLED Display for easy viewing of their fitness data, the Gear Fit2 is truly an essential companion for fitness animals.

Gear IconX_ProductHowever, being able to track one’s workout progress is not enough for fitness animals to achieve their goals. Movement and focus are equally important. Imagine doing a 10km run with wires hitting the face. That would immediately distract a fitness animal from truly focusing on his or her full goals. The all-new Samsung Gear IconX helps with just that. Having a truly wireless design, these cord-free fitness earbuds   and help motivate fitness animals to push themselves more with its in-ear fitness tracker, something the market hasn’t seen or any other earphone device can do, with real time updates on time, distance, speed, heart rate, calories burned, etc. Equipped with audio feedback, the cord-free earbuds provide fitness animals with a coach’s voice in their head – literally – to push them further into achieving their goals and the most effective training they long for.

But it doesn’t stop there: The Gear Icon X allows fitness animals to listen to up to 1,000 songs on its 4GB storage. Controlling the music player is done much easier, too, thanks to its Smart Touch function: users will be able to control the volume, or select play, pause, and skip with just a few simple taps on a Gear IconX earbud.

Gear IconX_Lifestyle

Samsung has also taken into consideration the safety of its Gear IconX users. The cord-free earbuds have an ambient noise feature that allows fitness animals to still hear their surroundings and be aware of their environment without sacrificing the need for a seamless music experience.

One of the best things about Gear Fit2 and Gear IconX is their compatibility beyond Samsung, working with Android 4.4 or above and 1.5GB RAM devices. To top all of that, both fitness devices have the ability to function without the other. Fitness animals are usually introduced to fitness gadgets that require another – but that’s not the case with the new Gear Fit2 and Gear IconX, which can actually work as stand-alone devices.

Samsung’s newest GPS sports band and cord-free fitness earbuds are the perfect fitness companions in unleashing one’s self by setting fitness animals free from limitations, distractions, and things that hold them back from achieving not just their goals, but their optimal performance as well. The Samsung Gear Fit2 and Gear IconX help #UnleashYourself.

The Samsung Gear Fit2 and Gear IconX are now available at Samsung Experience Stores and authorized dealers nationwide for only P8,490 and P7,990, respectively.
