Part I: Overview
Platform Introduction
The Xerox® ConnectKey Technology platform was launched in February of 2013, and consisted of five series of MFPs, as well as
various software solutions. ConnectKey Technology was further updated in 2014 with a software upgrade available for existing
products already purchased that added new features and provided updates to existing functionality. The ConnectKey portfolio was
also expanded with the addition of a 70 ppm color tabloid sized MFP, a new monochrome tabloid sized MFP series, and two A4 MFP
laser devices.
In 2016, Xerox launched the new 2016 ConnectKey Technology-enabled ‘i-Series’ Smart MFPs built on this successful platform which
offer a powerful and complete range of devices that include an array of new capabilities and solutions. Some highlights include:
• An industry first – ready to use embedded MFP apps allow you to easily connect your mobile workers to the device. Xerox ® App
Gallery allows you to download new apps, such as Print from DropBox™ and Scan to Microsoft ® Office 365 directly from the user
interface.
• A cloud-based service utilizing state-of-the-art technology to provide instant, draft-quality machine translation or convenient access
to professional translators via multiple platforms. Thirty-eight language translation choices are supported with the new Xerox®
Easy Translator Service App.
• Secure and accurate printing and scanning with a continuum of mobile options that fit your environment, with free print and scan
apps, such as Xerox® Mobile Link App.
• Xerox® PrintSafe Software providing secure print authentication for printed data on most multifunction printers, including both
Xerox® devices and devices from other vendors. This software is open to work with a variety of industry standard secure readers and
cards.
• Xerox® devices built on ConnectKey Technology support a Wi-Fi Direct connection that lets you print from your mobile device
without having to connect to a network.
• A simplified and intuitive user interface that can be tailored for your business needs.
Like their predecessors, these powerful office MFPs handle your document needs with exceptional speed, optimal efficiency and
worry-free security. This innovative use of Xerox® technology makes it easy to customize and optimize unique job processes – helping
you find better ways to get your best work done. These features and others are explained in more detail in Part II of this document.
As provided in the past, a set of existing ConnectKey-enabled MFPs can be upgraded with the new features found on the 2016
ConnectKey Technology-enabled ‘i-Series’ Smart MFPs.

ConnectKey Technology
New Productivity Features
Simplified User Interface
Users will experience even more simplified user interface screens with larger icons, making ConnectKey Technology-enabled MFPs
even easier to use. For a detailed comparison, see Part III of this document.
Embedded Apps and Xerox® App Gallery for Extra Convenience
Visit the Xerox® App Gallery and simply download our lightweight, serverless ConnectKey Apps to your ConnectKey Technologyenabled multifunction printer via USB or Xerox® CentreWare® Internet Services. You can access the App Gallery from the User
Interface of a 2016 ConnectKey-enabled MFP or by visiting www.xerox.com/AppGallery.
Other embedded Apps Include:
• QR Code, an embedded app, provides a simple way for a multifunction printer enabled with ConnectKey Technology to display its
IP address to an app, and to be used to connect a mobile device to the MFP. The user loads the Xerox® Print Portal App and then
scans the QR code on the UI with the mobile device.
• @PrintByXerox App allows users to leverage the Xerox® Cloud Services print platform to print to ConnectKey Technology-enabled
MFPs using one universal email address.

Print Around with Print on Alternative Paper
Print Around, an existing feature on ConnectKey-enabled MFPs, allows jobs to be held in a queue if the printer does not have the
correct resources, such as mismatched media type, color or size, and permits other jobs in the queue behind it to print. The upgrade
enhances this feature as users are now able to select different media to that originally specified and loaded in the device. The Print on
Alternative Paper feature also allows the user to scale and center the image if the media is a different size. This feature can be
enabled or disabled in Xerox® CentreWare® Internet Services.
Arabic Support
The user interface for ConnectKey Technology-enabled MFPs and Xerox® CentreWare® Internet Services are now available in Arabic
and users can select Arabic as their default language. This selection will update the user interface to use Arabic characters and accept
input from the soft keyboard, which will be configured to display Arabic characters. The Xerox® CentreWare® Internet Services Web
pages have also been translated to Arabic, however, there is currently no support for Arabic in embedded pages.
Added Web UI Functionality
