Consistent High
Quality Colour
The CLX-8385ND/CLX-8385NX is a powerful colour
MFP for businesses and workgroups that regularly use
colour to add impact to everyday documents, such as
reports, spreadsheets, letters and presentations.
Easy Colour Manager
The A4 format is a cost-effective option for those that
don’t need the flexibility of A3 output, but who do
require the speed, reliability and robust print quality of a
workgroup device capable of handling print volumes of
up to 100,000 pages a month.
Colour print speeds of 38 pages per minute, network
colour scanning, walk-up copying and fax put the
CLX-8385ND/CLX-8385NX at the heart of workgroup
Support for Samsung’s XOA development platform
means that it can also be integrated into enterprisewide applications, workflows and cost-saving printer
management systems like SafeCom’s XOA-enabled
pull printing solution.
Easy Colour Manager lets you adjust colour
balance, brightness, contrast and saturation of
images viewed on a PC monitor. This feature
is especially useful if you have specific colour
preferences or corporate colour use guidelines.
The ability to grab an image from anywhere on
your screen, make the necessary adjustments
and print only the area selected helps eliminate
unnecessary paper and toner use.
Auto Colour Detection
Save time and money with Auto Colour
Detection. The MultiXpress C8385ND
automatically recognises colour and B&W
prints/copies and outputs them in the most
appropriate way so that you no longer have
to separate mixed batches before printing.
Improves productivity and prevents unnecessary
wear and tear of printer components.
Real-Time Calibration Technology
SafeCom & XOA
Gain control over print devices with SafeCom’s Enterprise
Smart Printing solution, now available as an embedded XOA
application on Samsung MFPs. This widely used solution
offers a set of tools to cut costs by 40%, including centralised
device administration, access controls, job accounting and
secure pull printing.
The software routes print jobs to a server where they remain
until the user pulls them down to the network printer of their
choice with a PIN or swipe/smartcard. Any that are not
retrieved within a pre-determined period are automatically
deleted from the print queue.
In this way, SafeCom eliminates unnecessary printing,
provides a record of MFP activity and maintains data security
as documents are not printed until the user is at a machine
to pick them up. Embedding SafeCom on a Samsung MFD
allows it to be operated via the control panel and removes the
need for additional hardware.
Real-Time Calibration Technology ensures
documents are output to a consistently high
standard, from the first print to the last. When
dealing with documents that require special
attention, users can opt to define colour quality
Consistent Colour Printing
The MultiXpress C8385ND delivers premium
quality 9600 dpi print resolutions with ease.
Easy Colour Manager and the enhanced CTD
sensor ensure colour output is always clear,
sharp and professional.
Colour Controls
Accounting and device management software
supplied with the MultiXpress C8385ND lets IT
administrators keep colour print costs under
control. Use it to monitor individual devices and
users, set quotas or restrict access to specific

Customisable User Interface
Customise the LCD panel with your
corporate logo, IT Support number and

Keeping A secure
office environment
XOA (eXtensible
Open Architecture)
The MultiXpress CLX-8385ND/CLX-8385X protects your
data with Common Criteria-certified security included at no
extra cost. As standard, it provides secure networking and
a Trusted Platform Module (TPM) security chip to prevent
unauthorised access to data on devices and across the
network. Encryption and HDD Image Overwrite options are
available for those who require additional levels of security.
Samsung’s eXtensible Open Architecture (XOA) is a
powerful development platform that makes it possible
to develop, implement and integrate document
solutions quickly and cost-effectively.
sun g Se c ur
More powerful still is the XOA Software Development
Kit (SDK), making it easy for developers to integrate
Samsung MFPs into existing enterprise applications
or create brand new ones that take advantage of the
devices’ print and scan functions.

High Level
of Security
At its most basic, XOA allows end users to customise
the MFP interface with corporate logos and each user’s
choice of applications and functions for a consistent
look and feel across the enterprise.
For maximum flexibility, the XOA SDK can be used to
create both Java-based embedded solutions that run
on the MFP itself and web-based applications.
Customer Benefits of XOA
Implement your print solutions your preferred way –
embedded or web-based.
Solution partners have the freedom to access ‘Out
Of Box (OOB)’ features, such as print, copy and
scan, to either customise or provide completely
seamless modification.
Customisable UI
The Samsung Security Framework provides
built-in features as standard, including:
Change the user interface to suit your company’s
exact needs in terms of function controls, user
shortcuts and GUI Skin design.
