Introduction
The MX-M503N/U, MX-M453N/U, MX-M363N/U, and MX-M283N are highly productive black & white
multifunctional systems for small/medium workgroups.
The new MFPs have been designed with efficiency in mind. Especially, as for N models, their large 8.5” colour LCD
touch panel with handy thumbnail preview and the optional retractable keyboard make operating the MFP easy.
The N models can also be equipped with an expansion memory board that enables users to produce compact PDF
with high quality. Furthermore, the MX-M503N/U, MX-M453N/U, MX-M363N/U, and MX-M283N also support the
latest Sharp OSA 3.0 and 3.2, which makes it easier for users to customise their MFP and integrate it into their office
workflow.
Speed of business and cost efficiency are becoming more important than ever. To meet these needs, the
MX-M503N/U, MX-M453N/U, MX-M363N/U, and MX-M283N have improved print and copy speeds of 50, 45, 36,
and 28ppm respectively. By using optional 4K finisher, users can print a large amount of data without interruption.
The N models support 1200 x 1200dpi – without sacrificing its printing speed. In addition, N models support not
only black & white scan but also colour scan with 70opm.
In summary, the MX-M503N/U, MX-M453N/U, MX-M363N/U, and MX-M283N are well placed to become market
leaders in their respective segments.

Market Analysis
The Mono MFP Market
The mono A3 MFP market has been under pressure for several years thanks to the ever growing popularity of the
colour / colour capable market.
The push for cheaper / faster colour machines was often predicted to be the end of the mono market in a fairly short
time, mirroring the Inkjet printer market.
In truth, the move towards colour MFPs has been steady if not spectacular, with the impressive gains in the colour
market not being matched by equivalent losses in the mono market. It seems clear that in the long term the market
will shift inexorably towards colour output, mono MFPs still constitute over 60% of the office MFP market.
The mono MFP is not dead yet!

As the graph above shows, the overall market for A3 MFPs has been growing steadily (3% CAGR* 2004-2008). It is
also clear that the driving force behind that growth is the colour market. However, that still only accounts for 38%
of the overall market.
Even at the current rate of change, mono MFPs will still constitute the majority of the market for several years,
although clearly it will become more and more competitive as manufacturers fight for their share of a shrinking
market.
Between 2004 and 2008, the colour market increased at 36% CAGR, whilst the mono market shrank at -5% CAGR.
However, the majority of the fall in the mono market was in the lower end (the 11-15ppm segment shrank at -47%)
with the rest of the market shrinking much more slowly.

The 21-30ppm market has begun to turn down since 2005, but the rate of decline has slowed dramatically to the
point that it appears to have hit a plateau.
The 41-50ppm segment has maintained a gradual decline, but the surprise is the 31-40ppm segment, which showed
a slight increase in unit sales in 2008.
No doubt this has a lot to do with falling prices and shrinking customer budgets, but this shows that there is still a
strong demand for workgroup and office – sized mono MFPs.
In fact the demand for this type of product is so strong that the decline in sales for this segment is less than the
decline of the overall mono MFP market.

The Competitors
Since the new Sharp models span such a wide range of speeds, competitors have been broken down into their
respective speed segments.

KM Bizhub 250
Ricoh MP2550CSP
Canon iR3025N

Toshiba e-Studio 233
Sharp AR-M 256
Canon iR 2022
Ky ocera KM3050
Xerox WC 5225
Canon iR2022i
Others
The 21-30ppm segment is clearly very fragmented, although Konica Minolta and Canon both have 2 of the top 10
sellers each.
The top 10 best-selling MFPs only accounts for 47% of the overall market, and it’s interesting to note that there is a
mixture of relatively high-functionality machines (KM Bizhub 250, Ricoh MP2550CSP, Canon iR202i) and low-end
(Bizhub 211, Canon iR2022)

As with the 21-30ppm segment, the top 2 machines are manufactured by Ricoh and Canon, but this segment is
much less fragmented, with the top 10 machines accounting for almost 60% of unit sales.

In the 41-50ppm segment, the top 3 units account for over a third of the overall market, with the Kyocera KM-5050,
Xerox WorkCentre 5645 and Ricoh Aficio MP5000 taking the top spots.
The top 10 accounts for more than 64% of the market – more than either the 21-30ppm or 41-50ppm, suggesting
that this segment is much lest congested in terms of different models available.
Of the top 10 sellers, 4 are rated at the top end of the segment - 50ppm - suggesting that speed is one of the key
selling points in the segment, especially compared to the other segments.

The Future
As has already been stated, the A3 monochrome MFP market is under a great deal of pressure, and is gradually
shrinking. However, it still accounts for the majority of the market (in terms of unit sales) and therefore cannot not
be ignored.

The future (according to IDC) shows a marked move towards the higher end of the market, with the 21-30ppm
segment falling significantly, the 31-44ppm segment shrinking, but slowly and the 45-69ppm segment actually
growing slightly.
The new MX-M36x to MX-M50x models obviously fit into the relatively healthy segments. The MX-M283N can be
considered a high-quality unit in the 21-30ppm category. The additional finishing, security and Sharp OSA
functionality not usually seen in this segment are potential sales arguments that can keep Sharp competitive in a
shrinking market.

Optimum Monthly Volume
The recommended volume at which the copier/printer will maintain an optimum performance level on an
on-going basis.
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.

Sales Approach
The new MX-M503N/U, MX-M453N/U, MX-M363N/U, and MX-M283N were designed around the

Image Quality
High Resolution Printing/ Copying
The more dots an MFP can lay down per inch (DPI), the more defined & refined the resulting image will be. The
more refined the image, the more impressive the final document will look.
The new MX-MX-M503N, MX-M453N, MX-M363N, and MX-M283N can print and copy data in true 1200x1200dpi.
Copy:
• Photo mode (1200dpi) produces finer and smoother image than 600dpi.
• MX-M503N, MX-M453N, MX-M363N, and MX-M283N can make copy data at the same speed as in the case of
600dpi.
Note:
1. In the case of Copy, only when users choose Text/Printed Photo, Printed Photo, or Photo mode on the resolution setting, they can produce
1200dpi copy.
2. Although 1200dpi mode produces clear photo, those modes may produce jaggy characters.
Copy Example: 1200dpi produces clearer hat and hair than that at 600dpi.
600dpi
1200dpi
Print:
1. Lines and characters are reproduced more clearly in higher resolution, resulting in better defined characters on
the page, meaning a higher quality and therefore a more impressive document.

New Improved Developer and Toner
The developer and toner used in the MX-M503N/U MX-M453N/U, MX-M363N/U, and MX-M283N series have been
enhanced compared to that of the MX-M450N/U and MX-M350N/U series.
This new developer helps improve the image quality through smoother distribution of the toner on the paper.
As a result, dots, fine lines & characters are better reproduced, and texture is less granulated.

ramifications of this for the MFP market include:
•
•
•
•
User frustration
Training
Users not understanding the capabilities of the MFP, therefore not getting the best out of it
Lost clicks

Remote Front Panel
The control panel for most MFPs is fixed, making it difficult for some people to use the MFP.
To combat this, Sharp has developed the Remote Front Panel that shows the full operation panel on a PC as is on the
MFP, making it easy to control remotely. Through Remote Access Interface, service helpdesk or disabled user can
connect with MFP.
Remarks: It is necessary to install the remote software to users’ PC. (Recommended VNC Software: RealVNC, TinyVNC, PAU Ver5)
Other uses include:
• Helpdesk support – help a user navigate using Remote Front Panel, so no need to visit the MFP
• Remote Administration – for example, an admin at a company HQ does not need to visit the
branch office to manage the MFP
• Sharp OSA developers can support their software remotely
Common Drivers
MX-M450/350U/N
MX-M503/453/363/283U/N
Sharp uses a standardised and simple driver design, which means that
• If you can use one Sharp printer, you can use any other Sharp printers
• Only one driver disk is needed to install drivers for any of our monochrome range, making drivers easy to
manage

MX-M503N/U 453N/U
MX-M363N/U 283N Sales Guide
Retractable Keyboard (N model only)
Data input is becoming a necessity on the front panel of MFPs:
• Email addresses
• Email titles & main messages
• Specifying file names for scans
• Meta data for document management functionality
• Working with Sharp OSA programs
The new integrated retractable keyboard means that data entry is both fast and easy, and the keyboard can be safely
retracted when not in use.
USB Interface (U model requires MX-PB11.)
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 (with MX-PKX1 installed)
•
Encrypted PDF (with MX-PKX1 installed)
•
XPS (with MX-PUX1 installed)
•
JPG (N model only)
•
TIFF
Users can select which interface to use: “Operation panel” or “rear side of MFP”.
Customers can choose the place where they can easily operate according to their usage.
For example, customers who often use the USB memory scan choose “operation panel” and customers who use the
USB Hub or card reader choose “rear side of MFP”.
Note: Users can only use one USB port. (The port is exclusive.) They are switched by the DIP switch. The default
USB port is “operation panel”.

Productivity
Not only are the MX-M503N/U, MX-M453N/U, MX-M363N/U, and MX-M283N incredibly easy
to use, they are also very efficient – helping you to achieve the best productivity possible from
your MFP.
• Fast scanning speed and colour scanning supported
The MX-M503N, MX-M453N, and MX-M363N can scan at speeds of up to 70opm
(with DSPF: 200dpi) in both colour and mono. The MX-M503U, MX-M453U,
MX-M363U, and MX-M283N can scan at speeds of up to 50opm (with RSPF: 200dpi) in both colour
(MX-M283N only) and mono. No waiting next to the machine for your originals to complete scanning!
Note: Although N models support colour scanning, they don’t support the Auto Colour Selection and the
Auto Colour mode that clearly reproduces each component such as texts or photos clearly and that
suppresses background automatically.

•
Gigabit Ethernet (1000Base-T)
As well as scanning and output speed, the speed of the network connection has also been improved with
the addition of Gigabit Ethernet – so your print jobs will reach the MFP faster, and your scan jobs will be sent
much more quickly as well.
•
Tandem Print & Copy
If you have a particularly urgent job, and 50ppm isn’t fast enough, you can combine the output speed of 2
MFPs to output a single job, doubling your output speed of up to 100ppm. To execute tandem print & copy,
users have to use same configuration machines. (U model has to be equipped HDD.)
Copy
Jobs sent to one MFP can be
set to also output on another,
doubling overall output speed
Print out
•
Direct SMTP
When using Internet Fax, if both the sending and receiving machine are capable of operating by Direct SMTP,
the Fax can be transmitted without going through the mail server. This eliminates a potential bottle neck,
and since the Fax is transmitted directly, it takes less time to arrive.
•
Fax Inbound routing (N model and U model with HDD) & preview (N model only)
When you receive a fax, it can either be printed out immediately, forwarded on
to a user, who can decide whether it should be printed at their own PC, or it
can be stored on your MFP and previewed on the LCD panel, ensuring that junk
faxes are not printed, saving your time and money.
•
Stamp Unit
Users may wish to have evidence that all of their documents have been scanned without any problems.
(e.g in case of important fax sending, or paper document digitalisation) The stamp unit allows users to
check which documents have already been scanned, and in case of a duplex original, the marks are stamped
twice on the front side of the document.

Connectivity
There are so many different environments and systems in use in today’s office that an MFP needs to be compatible
with as many as possible.
The MX-M503N/U, MX-M453N/U, MX-M363N/U, and MX-M283N have been developed with this in mind.
Sharp is a founder member of the SAP Printer Vendor Program. SAP device
types for all of our devices will be created to provide connectivity with SAP.
WHQL (Windows Hardware Quality Labs) testing ensure full compatibility with
Windows systems.
Sharp is a Citrix Technology Partner, giving us access to testing resources,
technical support and other Citrix development tools.
Compatibility with the CUPS (Common Unix Printing System) ensures you can use
your MFP with both Unix and Linux.
And not only can our devices work with all these software vendors, the MX-M503N/U, MX-M453N/U, MX-M363N/U,
and MX-M283N can communicate with them exceptionally quickly over the latest networking technologies:
• Standard Gigabit Ethernet (1000Base-T)
• IPv6

Microsoft XPS
The MX-M503N/U, MX-M453N/U, MX-M363N/U, and MX-M283N are compatible with the latest formats, including
Microsoft XPS.
What is XPS?
XPS (XML Paper Specification) is a new file format from Microsoft intended for published documents, where once
published, the document cannot be changed. It is similar in function to Adobe PDF.
XPS is important because compatibility is built into Vista, the latest version of Windows, (separate downloads are
available for previous versions) therefore it will be usable for a lot of people in the near future.
Benefits over PDF file format
• All fonts are embedded in the document
• Colour handling has been improved, with support for systems such as ICC profiling
• Support for a wider gamut of colours
• Compatibility with Microsoft’s DRM software (RMS / Rights Management Software), which in turn is
supported by Microsoft SharePoint.
Printing XPS files
It is possible to print XPS files using PCL drivers, but it is not ideal. When printing via PCL, the data is effectively
converted into a Bitmap, which affects gradation and transparency settings within the data.
File Formats
The MX-M503N/U, MX-M453N/U, MX-M363N/U, and MX-M283N are compatible with a wide variety of document

Save Money
All companies are interested in ways to save money – so how can the MX-M503N/U, MX-M453N/U, MX-M363N/U,
and MX-M283N help?
Duplex Printing
The MX-M503N/U, MX-M453N/U, MX-M363N/U, and MX-M283N come with duplex as standard.
By printing and copying as many documents as possible on both sides of the paper, your paper purchasing
costs could be halved.
Fax Management (All models require MX-FXX2. U models further require MX-PB11.)
With the advanced Fax management functions of the MX-M503N/U, MX-M453N/U, MX-M363N/U, and MX-M283N,
you need never print a fax again, whether receiving or sending.
Inbound routing - Incoming faxes are sent via email to a specified recipient or
sent as tiff or PDF data to servers/PCs at the specified time. Users can set the
transfer schedule. Therefore, system works efficiently and, so only required
faxes need be printed, and junk faxes are not printed.
PC-Fax - Fax electronic documents direct from your PC – no need to print them
first.
Fax Thumbnail also enables incoming faxes to be previewed prior to printing.
(N model only)
Of course, if you do need to print out a fax, you can always print it duplex!
Save Electricity, Save the Environment
The MX-M503N/U, MX-M453N/U, MX-M363N/U, and MX-M283N can be set to go into 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.

Compact PDF (N model only: MX-EBX3 required.)
The MX-M503N, MX-M453N, MX-M363N, and MX-M283N support compact PDF. The models create light and
high image quality PDF file by excellent character detection and well-balanced colour reproduction. The
compressed data size is about a tenth of the data size scanned without this feature. And compression speed in the
case of normal mode is much faster than that of current competitors’ MFPs.
Note: File size and/or compression speed varies depending on documents.

Security
Most IT departments are aware of the security issues of their networks, and take appropriate measures to protect
data stored on their systems.
But how many are aware of the dangers posed by an MFP?
Most MFPs fitted with a hard drive can automatically store copies of any jobs it processes on its hard drive, whether
they be print, copy, scan or fax jobs and they can stay on the MFP’s HDD for years.
How many sensitive and confidential documents pass through your MFP?

Financial data
Business documentation
Tenders
Product specifications
Employment data

Output by the MFP
On the MFP
Scanned documents can be
scanned in Encrypted PDF
format, meaning a password
must be entered before the
document can be opened.
Data on the HDD
(and
being
processed) can
be encrypted.**
PIN Printing means that no
printouts are left lying on the
MFP, as the user must enter a
PIN before the document is
printed.
Document Control means
that any document output
with DC patterns cannot then
be printed or scanned by
another Sharp MFP with DC
installed.** (N model only)
?/%&
Input to the MFP
IP & MAC address
filtering
restricts
access to the MFP
over the network.
?/%&$*#$~*$
$*#$
?
Files stored on
the HDD can be
automatically
deleted on a
regular basis.
Once processed,
data can be
overwritten with
random data.**
SSL / IPsec encryption
protects communication
over the network.
** Optional Data Security Kit
required.
IEEE802.1X
IEEE802.1X is a LAN standard established by the IEEE 802
committee. It is a technology used to authenticate
hardware connected to the network, therefore its main
function is to prevent unauthorized machines from
gaining access to your network.
The MX-M503N/U, MX-M453N/U, MX-M363N/U, and
MX-M283N support IEEE802.1X, maintaining the high
level of security your network requires.
There are broadly three techniques for preventing
unauthorized access to your network.
1. Authentication on your LAN switches
2. DHCP server system
3. Personal firewall system
Among the above, type 1 uses IEEE802.1X. By preventing unauthorized access at the network hardware level (rather
than at the server or computer level), IEEE802.1X is seen as providing a higher level of security, and it is often used at
major companies or public offices.

Office Integration
The trend towards office automation is clear.
including their document output infrastructure.
Customers want to make their offices as efficient as possible,
There is a demand for document solutions that can be integrated with either new or existing solutions, for archiving,
document workflow, accounting or scanning.
Sharp Open Systems Architecture is perfect for the job!
Sharp OSA makes it possible for third-party software developers to create custom applications that link the MFP to
software programs on a server or PC, giving you the ability to create your own solutions specific to your own needs.
The launch of the MX-M503N/U, MX-M453N/U, MX-M363N/U, and MX-M283N also marks the launch of the latest
version of Sharp OSA (3.0 and 3.2), which makes it even easier to customise your MFP and integrate it into your
office workflow.
Sharp OSA 3.0 supports following.
• A fully customizable User Interface (UI)
• Code description is based on standard HTML – a UI can be created with general coding skills
• Standard expansion technologies can be easily supported (such as Ajax, CSS & Flash)
• An existing Partner program, with many large developers already working with Sharp OSA
means that the right integrated solution could already be available.
Ajax: A group of interrelated web development
techniques used for creating interactive web applications
or rich Internet applications. With Ajax, web applications
can retrieve data from the server asynchronously in the
background without interfering with the display and
behavior of the existing page.
CSS: A stylesheet language used to describe the
presentation of a document written in a markup
language. Its most common application is to style web
pages written in HTML and XHTML.
Flash: A set of multimedia technologies. Flash technology
has become a popular method for adding animation and
interactivity to web pages.

•
Trial Mode
In order to allow a customer to assess Sharp OSA solution, a trial mode can be set up, which allows full
functionality for a limited period. On the MX-M503N/U, MX-M453N/U, MX-M363N/U, and MX-M283N,
this limit has been set at total 19,000 pages. (scanned/ printed/ sent)
•
Job Build Mode
The function where a particularly large original can be split into sections for scanning (if the number of pages
in the document exceeds the capacity of the document feeder) can now be used in Sharp OSA solutions.
•
Sending Data via HTTP / SMB
Previous versions of Sharp OSA were limited to the FTP protocol for the transmission of data, but many
Administrators don’t like FTP to be used on their networks. Sharp OSA 3.0 can also transmit data using the
HTTP and SMB protocols, making it suitable for almost all environments.
Control of MFP LCD screen/Sending
of job data: HTTP or SMB protocol

This allows for more simple control, for example using the same security setting used for web browsing (HTTP).

Additional features of Sharp OSA 3.2 include:
•
Single Sign-On
User authentication information used at the external authentication application can be hold in the MFP at the
time of login. In addition to login name, user name, and email address, a maximum of 10 parameters can
be set within Sharp OSA application.
•
Pages per File Support
The past Sharp OSA doesn’t support this feature, so the scanned document including n pages becomes one
file and it is sent to destination. On Sharp OSA 3.2, users can specify number of pages that can include into
one file.
•
Notice to application of MFP Configuration
More detailed information is possible with Sharp OSA 3.2.
•
Auto Clear Control API
Sharp OSA 3.2 prevents the execution of the “Auto clear” feature accidentally.
•
Home Screen Customisation
Sharp OSA application shortcut key (maximum of 4 applications) can be displayed on the Home screen.

Environment
Environmental regulations
•
RoHS

equipment.
•
WEEE
Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment regulations aimed at reducing the amount of waste going to
landfill and improving recovery and recycling rates.
•
Energy Star
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.
•
Nordic Swan
The Swan is the official Nordic eco-label which demonstrates that a product is a good
environmental choice. The Swan checks that products fulfill certain criteria including
power consumption, materials used, emissions and performance properties.
The label is usually valid for 3 years. The MX series is designed with the environment
in mind and based on Sharp’s policy of becoming a totally environmentally friendly
company.
•
Common platform
The MX series has 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.
•
Recyclable plastic
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.

Description
Prints an incoming fax on both sides of paper.
Reduces and sends two original pages as a single page.
By pressing the [Pause] key, a number entered before can be combined with a number
entered after.
After the connection is established and the fax signal from the other machine is confirmed,
scanning begins without using memory and the fax is transmitted.
Designates the number of copies to be printed out as well as whether incoming faxes are to
be stapled.
F-Code is a standard established by the ITU-T to ensure greater security and confidentiality in
fax transmissions.
Until now, special communications (for example, ‘confidential transmission’ and ‘relay
broadcast transmission’) could be performed only with another Sharp fax machine.
However, these functions are now available with other fax machines, as other
manufacturers have come to support F-Code.
A flash memory is used for saving fax data. It can hold information without the need of
electricity.
Received faxes can be automatically forwarded to a specified e-mail address, FTP server,
SMB server, or desktop.)
Numbers incoming fax pages when printing them out.
Sends data directly from a PC to a fax machine without printing the data on paper.
Polling is the procedure of asking another fax machine whether it wants to send information
and receive that information. Naturally, information must already be stored on that machine
in memory called “polling memory.” You can also perform the reverse, or scan a document
to polling memory on your fax machine as the information to be retrieved by another fax
machine.
Received fax data can be displayed as thumbnails and preview screen on touch panel.
MX-M503N/U, MX-M453N/U, MX-M363N/U, and MX-M283N with the fax option start to
dial and send a multiple-page document as soon as the first page is scanned into memory.
Resends the document after a certain period of time if the recipient is busy.
Can choose not to print out an incoming fax automatically. When this function is enabled, a
password entry screen will appear without printing the received fax automatically.
MX-M503N/U, MX-M453N/U, MX-M363N/U, and MX-M283N is set by default to rotate a
vertically placed original so that it is oriented horizontally before transmission.
Prints a transaction report automatically and you can confirm the transaction results.

Description
This application detects all available MFPs on the network and creates destination addresses
on the MFP automatically. It also receives scanned data from other MFPs.
A network tool designed to speed up the installation and configuration of all connected
Sharp devices.
Primarily for IT Managers, it allows you to manage all Sharp and non-Sharp SNMP compliant
printers over the network right from your desktop.
IT Managers can customise machine information as well as view device status with optional
pop-up alert messages.
Allows you to monitor important printer information on your PC via network.
For example, when something is wrong with the MX-M503N/U, MX-M453N/U,
MX-M363N/U, and MX-M283N, the MFP alerts you via an easy-to-follow graphic display.
[Advance]
Important information includes on-line/off-line status, name of the current active print job,
and machine conditions (such as amount of paper or toner).
Sharpdesk is Sharp’s original document management software and is fully integrated with
Sharp MFPs scanner functions.
This software provides you with a personal, PC desktop based system for managing scanned
images and electronic file documents.

Description
This function is a part of the ‘Retention Print’ function. ‘Hold after Print with PIN or Pass
Code’ is called ‘Confidential Print.’
Requires a personal ID number to be entered at the MFP before printing.
With the optional Data Security Kit, data that has been scanned for copying or printing is
automatically cleared from storage after the job is finished.
It can also encrypt certain types of data, and provide a Document control Function.
Network settings such as IP addresses and private information such as address books are
stored in the main unit. The printout of this data can be disabled to prevent leak of individual
data in the address book or administrative information on MFPs.
Use of the address book can be disabled in the following transmission methods to avoid data
transmission to invalid and unauthorised destinations.
Scan to E-mail / Scan to FTP / Scan to Desktop / Scan to Network Folder / Internet Fax Send /
Fax Send
Forwards all sent/received documents (except “USB memory scan” and “PC scan” data) to
‘e-mail’, ‘FTP’, ‘desktop’ and ‘Network folder’ for the administrator.
When data printed under this mode is scanned by MX-M503N, MX-M453N, MX-M363N,
and MX-M283N or later models equipped with the Data Security Kit, the Document Control
function cancels the job by detecting certain characteristic patterns inserted upon
copying/printing, and prevents printing/transmission of the data.
Enables you to protect data with password and/or encrypt scanned PDF data.
Authenticates hardware that connects to the network at the LAN switch or the wireless LAN
access point. This is used for some “unauthorised connection prevention solution” and
“quarantine network solution”.
IP/MAC address filtering controls MFP access to enable secure network printing.
Port filtering blocks unneeded TCP/IP services and enhances network security.
Encrypts and certifies data that flows on the network. It is able to encrypt all data sent by
using IP.
Keeps a log of machine operations.
Sharp’s proprietary operating system makes it less vulnerable to attack from the outside by
viruses and malicious executable files. This is an advantage compared to mainstream OS
installed on our competitors.
Impersonated transmission when scanning to E-mail must be prevented. For this purpose,
the [Sender Name] selection in the [Send] settings for Scan to E-mail operations can be
enabled/disabled as needed. When the selection is disabled, the Web page administrator’s
address is applied to the sender and changes are restricted.
Enables data communication using SSL (Secure Sockets Layer), a protocol that encrypts data
for transmitting over networks.
Server Message Block for scanning to secured folders.
Simple Network management protocol version 3 for advanced security.
Confirms whether a user is authorised to use the MFP.
Note: * feature is available on N model only.
