MX-M1204 / MX-M1054 / MX-M904 Sales Guide
Introduction
The MX-M1204 / MX-M1054 / MX-M904 are well positioned for demanding production environments that require
fast processing and professional finishing. These 1,200 x 1,200 dpi black and white MFPs are capable of printing at
high speeds of 120 ppm, 105 ppm and 90 ppm respectively. They have a fast 120 opm scan speed and a 250-sheet
Duplex Single Pass Feeder as standard. Suited for long print runs they can produce a variety of professional
materials ranging from brochures, direct marketing materials to user manuals and folded collaterals for envelope
insertion or for inserting heavier weight covers.
High volume paper output is also available when the various output options are installed with either a high volume
capacity finisher or a saddle stitch finisher each supporting up to 4,000 sheets. High volume paper capacity also
means that once a job has started, a maximum of 13,500 sheets can be copied or printed without the need to refill
the paper. The toner cartridge can even be changed whilst the machine is running, resulting in even greater
productivity.
The MX-M1204 / MX-M1054 / MX-M904 have a large multi-angle tilt structure 10.1” LCD panel with cutting-edge
functionality which gives customers more visibility and improved ease of use. The panel has no hard keys, other
than power, power save and home buttons. Its intuitive design with flick and tap touch functionality makes it very
easy to use and offers wider flexibility. Users can customise the home screen to their own preference and the large
screen makes it easier to read text and access applications. A retractable QWERTY keyboard, which makes data
entry quick and easy, is available as an optional extra.
In addition to these specific features, the colour scanning, network printing, document filing and data security
functions will meet the needs of any document production environment. The MX-M1204 / MX-M1054 / MX-M904
are also Energy Star certified.
The optional web browsing expansion kit enables the user to browse the Internet directly from the MFP panel and
print web content. Furthermore, the latest version of Sharp OSA (Open Systems Architecture) offers enhanced
integration by enabling connection to server applications outside of the firewall.
In summary, the MX-M1204 / MX-M1054 / MX-M904 are well placed to become market leaders in the high speed,
black and white market offering high reliability, productivity and ease-of use.

Market Analysis
Firstly, it’s very important to understand that the high-end Office market & Entry Level Production markets (or Light
Production) for both B&W and Colour devices are quite complex.
Many manufacturers have their own opinions of what constitutes a Departmental Office product and what
constitutes to being a Light Production product. Some manufacturers choose to attack both markets with the same
engine, whilst others choose to attack each market with a different engine.
To help your understanding, let’s start by taking a general overview of the B&W market first before we start to break
down the upper segments where the MX-M1204, MX-M1054 and MX-M904 are targeted.

Year
As you can see in the chart above, the A3 B&W market (including the Light Production segment) is in decline mainly
through the ongoing popularity of colour products and ongoing forecasts predict this trend to continue albeit at a
slower rate than in the last 4-5 years. Ultimately, it is predicted that the B&W market decline will hit a level where
they plateau as the customer demand for B&W only products is not expected to disappear altogether at this stage.
Of all the segments in the B&W market, the very high-end segments and Light Production areas are showing the
slowest amounts of decline, which is why the new MX-M1204, MX-M1054 and MX-M904 are still important
products for Sharp in the B&W market place.

*Although sold via Office channels in Europe, these Xerox models are still considered Light Production products
based on their positioning in the market, e.g. specification and price.
It’s also important to note that whilst we have attempted to categorise the MX-M1204, MX-M1054 and MX-M904
from a target market perspective, these models will still hold advantages & in some instances a price premium over
certain models within the same category due to the more advanced features that are available.
Based on the previous table we will now look at market share figures for the Departmental & Light Production
categories based on InfoSource data for FY 2011.

The Light Production class of products is led by Xerox with 26.2% share. They have long been a strong player in the
Production market for both B&W and Colour products; however, severe pressure from other manufacturers in recent
times has severely impacted their overall position in the market.
Ricoh comes in 2nd with 22.8% market share followed by Canon on 20.2% and then Konica Minolta on 14.3%
market share. Oce is 5th with 13.4% and Sharp are 6th with 1.8% share. This is driven by sales of the MX-M950
and MX-M1100 and Sharp hopes to significantly increase this share with the launch of the MX-M1054 and
MX-M1204 into the same segment.

The Light-Mid Production class leading products are the Ricoh PRO 907EX and Xerox 4112 Copier/Printer.
Following these is the Konica Minolta bizhub PRO 950, Canon iR ADVANCE 8085 and in 5th place is the Ricoh PRO
1107EX.
The Sharp MX-M950 and MX-M1100 are 27th & 28th respectively with a combined market share of 1.8%. The
launch of the new MX-M1054 and MX-M1204 is set to see Sharp increase its market share quite substantially in this
category.
Summary
Sharp is performing well in the Light Production & Departmental categories thanks to the existing MX-M1100,
MX-M950 and MX-M850 products. The new MX-M1204, MX-M1054 and MX-M904 are even more advanced
products and are set to take market share from competitors from the outset with a combination of features and
reliability.
N.B. Although B&W is a declining market, the service & consumables revenues associated with high page volumes
in these categories means they remain very important products to both Sharp and its dealer channels.
Later on in this sales guide we will start to compare the MX-M1204, MX-M1054 and MX-M904 with some of the key
competitive products in the Light Production & Departmental categories to highlight some of the feature benefits of
these products. This will help you to determine the exact strengths and weaknesses of any given product against
the new Sharp offerings.

Machine Life
The Machine Life represents the product design life for a machine that has used genuine Sharp supplies and has
been serviced at the preventative maintenance schedule by fully experienced technicians. It is intended for
planning purposes only due to the influence on the life of the product by external sources such as environment,
customer handling, copy/print media used and geographical location.
Maximum Monthly Volume
The Maximum Monthly Volume indicates the greatest volume the copier/printer can handle, when work
patterns demand. Continual copying/printing at the maximum level can result in reduced performance and a
shorter overall life.

Upgraded/ New Features and Functions
Copy / Print
Insert Separator (New!)
Users can insert separator pages for every specified number of
copies or for every job before they are output. This improves ‘sort’
jobs when delivering copies, or prevents paper mixing.
Note: A finisher, saddle finisher or high capacity stacker is required to use the
Separator Page function.
Covers/ Inserts (Upgraded!)
Compared to MX-M1100 / MX-M950 / MX-M850, this feature is has been upgraded. The upgraded points are
as follows:
1.Up to 11 types of insert sheets can be inserted
2.It is able to combine with Z-folding
3.Covers or inserts can be continuously inserted
4.Insertion just before back cover is supported
Print
Pamphlet Style – Full Image Pamphlet (Same as MX-7040N / MX-6240N)
Sharp MFPs produce various pamphlet styles, ie, Tiled Pamphlet, 2-Up Pamphlet, Multiple Tiled Pamphlet, and
Multiple 2-Up Pamphlet. In addition, the MX-M1204/ MX-M1054 / MX-M904 can produce Full Image Pamphlet.
If users select existing four pamphlet styles, the paper to print data is twice as large as the paper size specified in
the application such as Word or Excel, and the data is automatically ‘fit’ into the paper size. On the other hand, if
users select Full Image Pamphlet, they can choose the “Fit to Page Print” setting. Then, they can choose the paper
size larger than the size that they choose at the “Fit to Page Print” setting. Therefore, users don’t need to
consider the margin setting. This feature can only be used on PCL6.

Screen Setting (New!)
To enhance image quality, especially for documents that include both photo and text, the MX-M1204 /
MX-M1054 / MX-M904 can automatically analyse the contents of each page, distinguishing three different
segments according to significant elements, text, photo and graphic; and adjusts the number of lines accordingly
(Default mode).
A low number of lines (Low screen) is suitable to display gradational or granular images, a high number of lines
(High screen) is suitable to reproduce text and/or fine lines and to reduce jagged edges. A very high number of
lines (Super high screen) are more suitable to reproduce fine lines and small texts. In addition to the default
mode, users can manually select the following four modes, text/photo, text, photo, and fine text, depending on
the original users will print.
Note: This mode can be used only when users choose high quality or fine on the print mode. In the case of normal mode, low screen mode is
applied to all area including text, graphic, and photo same as MX-M1100 / MX-M950 / MX-M850.

Users can choose Sharpness from 5 values. When
users choose “Very Soft” or “Soft” mode, moiré can be
reduced. They can use those modes when there is
concern about moiré at the time of printing a scanned
image. When they choose “Sharp” or “Very Sharp”,
texts on the original are clearly reproduced. They can
use those modes when they want to clearly display the
outline or texts in digital photo.
Note: This mode can be used only when users choose high quality or fine on the print mode.

 Copy/ Print
Stability- Halftone Process Control (New!)
Users who require to copy/print large number of sheets also expect stable image quality from the 1st page to the
last page. Usually, MFPs have process control to enhance the stability and accuracy of each gradation.
The MX-M1204 / MX-M1054 / MX-M904 control halftone adjustment by two types of sensors:
The surface electric potential sensor monitors test patches of latent image generated on the drum surface. The
surface electric potential sensor has already been used on previous models, MX-M1100 / MX-M950 / MX-M850.
The image quality depends on the amount of toner on the drum, so it is necessary to keep the appropriate value.
The surface electric potential sensor measures the charged state by outputting various densities of some patches.
Then, the MX-M1204 / MX-M1054 / MX-M904 adjust the engine appropriate to the environment and life.
In addition, the MX-M1204 / MX-M1054 / MX-M904 are incorporated with halftone process control. In this
mode, the image density sensor automatically monitors several halftone patterns of developed images generated
on the drum surface and the MFP makes necessary adjustment to the provided optimum exposure level and
gradation according to the machine status and surrounding environments.
Note: Even if patches are added, the image adjustment time is almost the same as previous models because of the
speed-up of drum rotation speed and change of patch layout.

 Push Scan
Enhanced Background Suppression (Same as MX-7040N / MX-6420N)
One of the Auto Colour mode functions is automatic background suppression. In the case of previous models,
MX-M1100 / MX-M950 / MX-M850, the background colour was more suppressed, therefore, the colour balance
was imbalanced. The MX-M1204 / MX-M1054 / MX-M904 can suppress the background without losing the
colour balance i.e. ratio of RGB. This decreases the change of colour shade.

The MX-M1204 / MX-M1054 / MX-M904 offer the retention mode (RGB_RIP), suitable when users want to
resend/reprint the printed data stored in the MFP’s HDD for a long time. Unlike conventional models, the
MX-M1204 / MX-M1054 / MX-M904 can resend the print data stored in the HDD. In addition, whenever
users reprint the printed data stored in the HDD, they can always get the same result. In other words, the
colour tone of printed data does not change.

 Multi-Feed Detection Sensor Unit (MX-M1204 / MX-M1054 only)
The multi-feed detection sensor employs ultrasonic technology to help diagnose and
detect misfeeds from the document feeder as well as the paper feed section. This is
same as previous models, MX-M1100 / MX-M950.
 Create PDF for PC Browsing
Users can browse the PDF data stored on the MFP’s HDD from their PC by converting the filing data into PDF data.
You can also download the PDF data.
Note: When you use this feature, both normal document filing data and PDF data are created, so they consume
the capacity of MFP HDD.
 Store PC’s Application Data into MFP’s HDD
In addition to saving the filing data as PDF, users can use the MFP’s HDD as the NAS (Network Attached
Storage). Other users can read/upload the data stored in the MFP. Users can use up to 512 GB of the HDD as
NAS area.
Note: We recommend installing the optional Mirroring Kit (MX-EB15) to safeguard documents as a secondary back
up should the main HDD become corrupt or faulty.

MX-M1204 / MX-M1054 / MX-M904 Sales Guide

Data Backup (Mirroring Kit)
Data handling has been enhanced on the MX-M1204 / MX-M1054 / MX-M904, for example, users can use the
MFP’s HDD as NAS (Network Attached Storage), and share/edit the document filing data. The optional Mirroring
Kit, MX-EB15, is a second hard drive which enables data back up of those files stored on the HDD.
Even if one HDD is broken, the
data can be secured and
retrieved.
 Machine Adjustment (Upgraded!)
Although an administrator can adjust some features on the system setting screen, the adjustable items are very
limited. With the MX-M1204 / MX-M1054 / MX-M904, some items can newly be adjusted by the administrator.
Service people turns on this feature by simulation if he/she recognizes its administrator has appropriate technical
knowledge.

Our conventional models have various hard keys: power source, energy saving, home, copy start (both B/W and
colour), system settings, job status, proof copy, and number keys. The MX-M1204 / MX-M1054 / MX-M904 only
have three hard keys, power source, energy saving, and home keys. Except for the above keys, the MX-M1204 /
MX-M1054 / MX-M904 feature various soft keys, which give the following advantages:
1. Preventing potential mistakes in operation.
2. The intuitive panel makes it easier to use and navigate.
3. Changes the place of keys for higher priority features.
In addition, the main mode of the MX-M1204 / MX-M1054 / MX-M904 have changed from conventional models;
“Fax” and “Scan to Email” modes replaces “Image Send” mode.

MX-M1204 / MX-M1054 / MX-M904 Sales Guide
Common Drivers
Sharp uses a simple driver design, which is standardised across most models meaning that:
 If you can use one Sharp MFP, you can use any other Sharp MFP
 Only one driver disk is needed to install drivers for any of our colour range, making drivers easy to
manage
MX-M1100 / MX-M950 / MX-M850
MX-M1204 / MX-M1054 / MX-M904
Remote Access Front Panel
The control panel of most MFPs is fixed, making it difficult for some people to use the MFP. To combat this,
Sharp has developed the Remote Access Front Panel which shows the full operation panel on a PC as it appears on
the MFP, making it easy to control remotely. Service helpdesk or disabled users can connect with the MFP using
this feature.
Note: It is necessary to install the remote software to users’ PC. (Recommended VNC Software: RealVNC, TinyVNC, SRDM)
Other uses include:
 Training – the user panel can be shown to a whole room using a projector, so there is no need for all of
the trainees to gather around the front of the MFP.
 Helpdesk support – help a user navigate using Remote Access Front Panel, so no need to visit the MFP.
 Remote Administration – for example, an administrator at a company HQ does not need to visit the
branch office to manage the MFP.
 Sharp OSA developers can support their software remotely.
38
MX-M1204 / MX-M1054 / MX-M904 Sales Guide
USB Interface
An easy to access USB port allows users to scan important documents directly onto their USB memory drive, or to
print documents directly from their USB memory. Compatible file formats include:
 PDF
 Encrypted PDF
 Compact PDF (requires optional MX-EB11)
 XPS (requires optional MX-PUX1)
 JPEG
 TIFF
There are two USB ports; one at the front of the MFP on the operation panel and one at the rear of the MFP. The
USB port at the rear is exclusive for the wireless USB adaptor* (MX-EB13) if this option is installed by the user.
* Launch month of wireless USB adaptor for the MX-M1204 / MX-M1054 / MX-M904 is TBD.
System Settings
When users want to operate the system settings, they can access from the operation panel and/or the Web page.
With conventional models, some settings can only be accessed from the Web page and the screen of the system
settings. However, on the MX-M1204 / MX-M1054 / MX-M904, the number of settings that can be accessed
from the operation panel and the web page is almost the same.

Benefits for Customers

Customers do not need to install server PC and software.
-> Reduces cost for IT management.

Large-scale initial investment is not required.

SaaS type applications can communicate through firewall.
-> Customers can construct more flexible system.
The above benefits can expand solution sales of Sharp OSA for small and medium-sized companies that have
strong demands for SaaS type applications.

Environmentally Friendly
 Reduced TEC Value
The MX-M1204 / MX-M1054 / MX-M904 adopt various environmental technologies, for example, the learning
feature to reduce power consumption, and the LED lamp. (These are the same as the MX-7040N / MX-6240N).
In addition, the MX-M1204 / MX-M1054 / MX-M904 feature “eco scan” mode, which executes a job by keeping
the fuser off when that job does not require the fuser, such as image send or document filing. These
technologies result in a drastic reduction of the TEC value and warm-up times compared to the previous models,
MX-M1100 / MX-M950 / MX-M850.
1) TEC value comparison between MX-M1100 (25.1 kWh), MX-M950 (23.8 kWh), and MX-M850 (18.3 kWh),
MX-M1204 (17.4 kWh), MX-M1054 (15.8 kWh), MX-M904 (12.6 kWh).
2) Warm up time comparison between MX-M1100 / MX-M950 / MX-M850 (240 sec), MX-M1204 / MX-M1054 /


Energy Saving Mode
The MX-M1204 / MX-M1054 / MX-M904 can be set to go into the power save mode after a set period of inactivity.
In addition to this, there is a power-save button which, when pressed, forces the MFP into power save mode
immediately.

Eco Mode
The MX-M1204 / MX-M1054 / MX-M904 have an “Eco mode”, which can make the energy saving related
settings collectively.
Enhanced Auto Power Shut Off
The MX-M1204 / MX-M1054 / MX-M904 have an enhanced “Auto Power Shut-off” mode. In conventional
models, MFPs can automatically set the auto power shut-off timer in accordance with average usage for four
weeks. However, it is NOT suitable for users who intensively use an MFP on specific day(s). With the MX-M1204 /
MX-M1054 / MX-M904 you can prepare “Specific Date Operation Settings”. This enables users to set the
specific pattern manually to suit their usage.
Eco Scan Feature
The MX-M1204 / MX-M1054 / MX-M904 also support Eco scan feature. Jobs not requiring printing such as
Image Send or Scan to HDD can be executed with the fuser turned off.
Power On/Off Scheduling
Users or the Administrator can register the schedule so that the MX-M1204 / MX-M1054 / MX-M904 are
automatically turned on or off. For example, the MFP can be turned on at the start time of work and then turned
off during lunch time or at the end of the day. Up to three patterns can be set.

Environmental Regulations

RoHS is a European directive, on the restriction of the use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and
electronic equipment.

WEEE – The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment regulations is aimed at reducing the amount of waste
going to landfill and improving recovery and recycling rates.

Energy Star is a label for energy efficient products with worldwide recognition. The Energy
Star programme was introduced to Europe in 2002 as a voluntary label for computers,
monitors, printers, fax machines, scanners, copiers and multifunctional machines. New
specifications were introduced in 2007 which ensure that the Energy Star represents only
the markets most energy efficient products.

The official Nordic Ecolabel demonstrates that a product is a good environmental choice.
They check that products fulfil certain criteria including power consumption, materials
used, emissions and performance properties. The label is usually valid for three years.
(As of August 2012, MX-M1204 / MX-M1054 / MX-M904 have not yet been certified with Nordic
Ecolabel).

MX-M1204 / MX-M1054 / MX-M904 Sales Guide
The MX series are designed with the environment in mind and based on Sharp’s policy of becoming a totally
environmentally friendly company.

The MX series have been developed with “Common platform” concept, which utilises common mechanical
parts, boards, consumables, software and controllers as much as possible. This fact is important for the
overall company’s activities such as stock management, production, logistics, technical training, etc. This
means less power is required to sustain the company’s activities and total energy consumption is reduced, as
everything is Sharp.

The material name and characteristics are mentioned on all plastic parts and cabinet for recycling. Also
labels for caution or operation are reduced as much as possible and instead of these messages are now
embossed on plastic.

Biomass Plastic
MX-M1204 / MX-M1054 / MX-M904 are the first Sharp’s overseas monochrome models that adopt the biomass
plastic that is environmentally friendly, ie, it can reduce CO2 emissions.
 Biomass Toner (New!)
In addition to Biomass Plastic, MX-M1204 / MX-M1054 / MX-M904 are the first Sharp overseas models that
adopt its use. Considering the environment, the toner adopts non-crop type biomass feedstock to replace resin,
which previously accounted for a high percentage of the overall toner. Using carbon-neutral materials in place
of resin contributes to a reduction in CO2 emissions, thus lessening the impact on the environment.

Initialise Private Data/Data in the Machine
Users can restore the system-set value to the factory default state and can delete the data such as address book
data, job log, or data in document filing folders stored in the MX-M1204 / MX-M1054 / MX-M904 by themselves;
by pressing the “Initialise Private Data/Data in the Machine” button. By using this feature, users do not need to
worry that their important information may leak.
Hidden Pattern Print (Copy/ Print)
This feature allows the user to add text in the background of an original document, for example ‘Copy’,
‘Confidential’ or ‘Not for Copy’.
If the original is copied, the MFP detects this ‘pattern’ and prints the text across the original document. This
feature can prevent unauthorised copy and protect the confidential information/ personal information.
Tracking Information Print
Some information such as printed date/user name is always printed on the output page in the upper or lower side
of the sheet by checking this feature on the system settings. Tying this feature to the job log enables information
tracking.
