Improved Imaging System
Easy, High-Quality Copying
Sharp thoroughly revamped its imaging process for the
MX-5140N/4140N; now a high-performance processor, a new
developer, and the second-generation Mycrostoner-HG (High
Grade) combine to provide breathtaking image quality. The new
toner expands the colour reproducibility range for a more natural
rendering of clear blue skies, emerald green oceans, and other
colour images. And the smaller particle size of the toner and the
developer allows for reduced graininess and clear reproduction of
fine lines, fine text, and halftone colours.
The MX-5140N/4140N comes standard with Auto Colour Mode
to deliver high-quality automated copying. This function allows the
MFP to make clear, easy-to-read copies from documents that
contain not only text but also photos and maps. Here’s how it
works: Auto Colour Selection automatically determines whether
a page is colour or B/W. The contents of each page are then
analysed to distinguish between different components, such as
photos and text, and the appropriate copy mode for that page is
selected. Finally, Background Suppression automatically removes
unnecessary background colour for clearer output.
High-Resolution Output
The MX-5140N/4140N delivers 600-dpi copying and razor-sharp
1,200-dpi printing—without sacrificing output speed. Digital
smoothing technology enhances the print and copy resolution to
the equivalent of 9,600 x 600 dpi for incredibly smooth
reproduction of fine lines. Fine-grained photographs, detailed
illustrations and graphs, and small text come out crisp and clear.
Adobe® PostScript® 3™
The MX-5140N/4140N supports genuine Adobe PostScript 3 for
better graphics handling.
Direct Printing
Simultaneous Job Processing
The MX-5140N/4140N can print PDF, TIFF, JPEG, XPS*, and other
files without using the printer driver. And there’s a USB port
beneath its control panel, which comes in handy when printing
data directly from USB memory devices—an indispensable function
for users who are in a hurry or who want quick machine access
without a PC.
The MX-5140N/4140N makes it easy to simultaneously carry out
multiple jobs. Scanned documents can be copied and e-mailed at
the same time. And documents can be simultaneously printed and
faxed for ultra-convenient multitasking.
* Direct XPS printing requires optional MX-PUX1.

A3 Colour Network Scanning
LDAP Support
The MX-5140N/4140N works as a full-colour network scanner
and supports TIFF, PDF, PDF/A, encrypted PDF, compact PDF*,
JPEG, and XPS file formats. Scanned documents can be converted
into compact PDF files to enable fast, high-volume transmission
and save storage space. Enhanced scan performance improves the
legibility of extremely fine text and allows vivid colour reproduction
in scanned documents. Auto Colour Selection chooses the right
mode for scanning originals containing both colour and B/W
pages (see page 4). And five levels of sharpness and contrast
control enable finely tuned adjustments for optimal image quality.
Built-in LDAP (lightweight directory access protocol) support
eliminates the need to enter or register full addresses. When you
enter the first few letters of the recipient’s name, the MX-5140N/
4140N displays a list of possible matches from your company’s
LDAP server. Selected addresses can be stored to the MX-5140N/
4140N’s address book.
* Requires optional MX-EB11.
Drop Out Colour
This function removes chromatic colour from a scanned image,
reducing the data size for compact storage and enhancing the
legibility of B/W text to improve the text recognition rate before OCR.
Multiple Distribution of Scanned Files
Black Letter Emphasis
With just a few taps on the LCD touchscreen, you can choose
different ways to distribute your scanned documents. Scan to
E-mail sends documents as an e-mail attachment. Scan to FTP
Server scans documents directly to an FTP server for storage. Scan
to Desktop sends scanned documents directly to your PC desktop.
Scan to Network Folder (SMB) sends files to a shared folder on
a networked Windows-based PC. Scan to External Memory
Device scans documents directly to USB memory devices. And
Scan to Fax enables conventional faxing or Internet faxing.
When text-heavy documents are scanned, this function improves
the legibility of B/W text while keeping the file size down. Text is
scanned at high resolution while the rest of the document,
including photos and illustrations, is scanned at a lower resolution.

Improved Address Book
With the MX-5140N/4140N’s improved address book format, up to
seven destinations, including e-mail addresses, fax numbers, and
FTP addresses, can be displayed under each registered entry. For
enhanced security, when registering an entry, you can select
whether the information will be open to all MFP users or limited to
only designated users or groups. And since only the viewable
addresses for each logged-in user are displayed, the list of
addresses is narrowed down, making address searches easier.

Internet Fax
One Scan/Multi Format
Paperless faxing with inbound routing lets you check incoming
faxes via e-mail before printing them out. It can also forward
incoming faxes to destinations—another fax/Internet fax machine,
an FTP server, a network folder (SMB), or a PC desktop—specified
for each sender. When fax data is transferred by file, the Inbound
Routing function automatically attaches the fax sender’s name (as
registered in the MFP’s address book) to the file, so recipients will
know who sent the fax.
This function allows you to specify image resolution or colour for
each mode of broadcasting employed. For example, when sending
the same image data to both a fax and an e-mail destination, you
can send a B/W version via fax and a full-colour version via e-mail.

User Authentication
Tracking Information Print
The MX-5140N/4140N prevents unauthorised use by requiring
passwords for machine access. This safeguarded solution can
register up to 1,000 users in three access levels as Administrator,
User, or Guest and can designate to which function user
authentication applies. The MX-5140N/4140N can, for example,
be set to allow B/W copying by all users while restricting colour
copying to designated users. And the MX-5140N/4140N works
with an external Active Directory server to extend user
authentication to multiple MFPs and a greater number of users.
This function prints the MFP user’s name, the date, the MFP’s serial
number, job ID, and other specifics on printouts, making it
possible to track documents and
prevent data theft.
Encrypted PDF with Password Protection
To prevent unauthorised viewing of confidential data, the
MX-5140N/4140N enables scanned PDF data to be password
protected and encrypted for transmission over the network. After
transmission, viewers can gain access to the encrypted PDF only
after re-entering the password.
SSL and IPsec Data Encryption
To ensure an extremely high level of network security, the
MX-5140N/4140N employs SSL (secure sockets layer) and IPsec
data encryption technologies. SSL encryption prevents data
leakage through the network when printing via IPP, browsing
secure Web pages (HTTPS), or communicating via e-mail (SMTP
and POP3) or FTP (FTPS). IPsec encrypts and authenticates traffic
between specified parties.
Scan to Me Function
Scan to Me lets a logged-in authorised user send scanned data to
his/her own e-mail address simply by pressing the start button. This
eliminates the need to manually enter or select the address, thereby
preventing documents from being sent to the wrong address.
