Copying (See "Copy.")

In addition to normal copying functions, convenient new functions, such as "Copy Sample" which helps to avoid copy errors, "Booklet" for making copies into booklets, and "Different Size Originals" for copying originals of different sizes together in one copy operation, are provided to increase your productivity.

Storing Scanned Data/Printing Stored Data (See "Scan and Store" or "Access Stored Files.")

The Scan and Store function enables you to save document data that has been scanned from the scanner unit or created on a computer. The saved data can be printed at a specified time, or merged with separately saved data or data created on a computer for simultaneous processing.
Also, by using the functions of the Advanced Space, you can set a file format (JPEG, TIFF, PDF, XPS, OOXML) for the scanned original, so that it can be accessed from your computer. The Advanced Space can be opened externally as an SMB server or WebDAV server. You can access the Advanced Space from your computer and move files from your computer to the machine or vice versa.

Sending Function (See "Scan and Send.")

The Send function enables you to send scanned image or document data to file servers, or send it by e-mail or I-fax. A variety of file formats are supported (JPEG, TIFF, PDF, XPS, OOXML), which offer you greater flexibility in accommodating digital workplace environments.

Faxing* (See "Sending/Receiving a Fax," "Fax/I-Fax Inbox," "Sending a Fax from a Computer (Windows)," or "Sending a Fax from a Computer (Mac).")

In addition to normal facsimile functions, the machine offers you Super G3 compatibility, which enables you to transmit documents at high speeds, greatly reducing transmission costs as compared to conventional facsimile machines. Scanned documents as well as documents stored in the Mail Box/Memory RX Inbox, and computer data can be sent by facsimile.
You can also send documents to multiple addresses and forward received facsimile to another destination.
Also, by using the Remote Fax function, you can share the fax function on the same network.
