Office users
Sharp’s proprietary technologies give each of these MFPs quick warm-up and first copy
times. A motion sensor—a first for a Sharp MFP—lets you use the machine without feeling
like you have to wait. Thanks to their intuitive operation and superb usability, the
MX-4070N/3570N/3070N simplify even the most complex work processes and help you
finish document jobs fast.
Easy User Interface
Motion Sensor
The intuitive Easy UI mode makes it easy for anyone to use the
MFP’s advanced functions. In this mode, simple function icons are
displayed on the 10.1-inch colour LCD touchscreen. Each user can
customise the home screen by drag-and-dropping icons for
commonly used functions, making for smoother, more efficient
A built-in motion sensor detects your approach to the MFP and
wakes it from Sleep mode. The control panel lights up and the
machine finishes warming up as you enter your desired copy or
scan settings. Then, with a minimum of waiting, you simply push
the Start button to get the job underway.
Note: Detection range can be set to three different ranges.

Simply Better Admin
IT managers / administrators
These MFPs fit securely and seamlessly into your office system. An advanced security
environment and new, easily viewable administration tools reduce the workload for system
administrators and give full support to their management duties.
Secure Access Control
Integrated Device Management
The MX-4070N/3570N/3070N support the Active Directory®
service, which lets you use the machine’s log-on credentials for
internal network folders. System administrators can easily keep
track of user credentials, which makes for an efficient and highly
secure operational environment. And with single sign-on, you
can access internal network folders by simply logging into the
MFP—there’s no need to re-enter your IDs and passwords.
As a system administrator, you can get the most out of a Sharp
document system by using Sharp’s efficiency-boosting device
management tools. From a single location, you can use Sharp
Remote Device Manager* (SRDM) to manage multiple Sharp MFPs.
This includes everything from system setup, user access, and
security settings to troubleshooting and maintenance. It’s quick.
It’s effective. And it takes the hassle out of MFP management.

as thumbnails—or you can scan
documents directly to the USB drive.
Next to the control panel are two LED lamps: one red, one green.
These light up to notify you—even from a distance—of the status

These MFPs comply with the accessibility guidelines outlined
in US Section 508 and EU Mandate 376. This means that all
user aspects—from the heights of the control panel and glass
platen to the readability of the LCD—have been designed with
consideration for usability by people with disabilities.
The control panel can be tilted freely at various angles for
easy viewing and easy operation, even from a wheelchair.
Having the control panel at the perfect viewing angle means
you can reduce eye strain and avoid making input errors.

Lock-on Handles
The paper drawers on these MFPs feature easy-grip, lock-on
handles. As well as enabling easy opening and closing, they
ensure that the paper drawers close properly, thereby enhancing
safety in the event of a disaster such as an earthquake.
Remote Operation*
The Remote Operation function lets you display the MFP’s
main control panel on the screen of your PC or mobile device.
From a remote location, you can then check MFP settings or
reprint data stored on the MFP. This function also enables the
administrator to guide an MFP user through necessary
procedures and allows remote MFP operation from a
* Requires VNC application. Simultaneous remote operation from two or more
PCs or mobile devices is not possible. Remote operation also depends on the
network environment and applications being used. Contact a Sharp customer
representative for details.
When it comes to image quality, the MX-4070N/3570N/3070N deliver a reliably excellent performance. Thanks to their
outstanding precision and colour quality, these MFPs lend your documents a beautifully professional look.
Easy, High-Quality Copying and Scanning
Wide Colour Gamut
Through an advanced three-step process, Auto Colour Mode
provides fully automated copying and scanning in both colour
and B/W—with a simple press of the Start button. Here’s how it
works: Auto Colour Selection automatically determines whether
a page is colour or B/W. Auto Original Type Selection then
analyses page contents to distinguish between different
components (such as photos and text) and selects the appropriate
mode. Finally, Background Suppression automatically removes
unnecessary background colour.
By thoroughly revamping the imaging process, Sharp was able to
expand the colour gamut for these MFPs. As a result, colour
reproduction is more faithful and vivid compared to previous

Developer Refresh System
By discharging old developer little by little and continuously
replacing it with new developer, this system prevents developer
deterioration and ensures stable print quality over the long term.

Auto Process Control
To maintain consistently high image quality during large-volume
print jobs, these MFPs employ a periodic colour calibration
system. Image density sensors read high-density and halftone
colour patches and feed the information back to the image control
unit. The MFP can then make adjustments to minimise colour
variance between pages.

PCL 6 and True Adobe® PostScript® 3™
For better graphics handling, these MFPs come standard with both
PCL 6 and true Adobe PostScript 3. In addition, the PostScript driver
allows you to use the dot screening technique so that you can
emulate the high-quality printing of commercial offset printers.
High-Resolution Output
Each MFP’s print engine supports 1,200 × 1,200 dpi printing and
copying*. Digital smoothing technology delivers print and copy
resolution at the equivalent of 9,600 × 600 dpi, giving you
ultra-clear image quality. Fine lines and small text come out
looking crisper and easier to read.

PANTONE® Colour Matching
In colour-critical printing environments, these MFPs let you create
professional-grade documents using the global-standard
PANTONE MATCHING SYSTEM®. With this value-adding feature,
Sharp MFPs bring high performance, reliability, and
consistent colour quality to the job of producing
business documents.
Whether you’re in the office or out and about, being able to share information easily and securely is vital to
the smooth running of your business. Secure information sharing with a Sharp MFP transforms your working
style and helps you grab new opportunities before they pass.
Link to Cloud Services*
Public Cloud
An MX-4070N/3570N/3070N doesn’t just connect to your local server. It also
connects with cloud services directly from the MFP’s control panel. You can
upload scanned data to Google Drive, OneDrive for Business, or SharePoint
Online—or print directly from any of them. Using a cloud service like this can
save you the time and cost of setting up and managing a server within your
company. Once you log into the MFP, you can quickly access multiple
software services without having to sign in to each one separately. It’s a true
time-saver that gets your document jobs finished faster.
Google Drive™

* Requires optional MX-AMX2.
Link with Mail Servers
Scanned data can be conveniently sent via your regular Gmail™ or Microsoft®

finish even large projects quickly.
Automated Scanning*
* Originals per minute; when feeding A4 (8 1/2" × 11") sheets
Using advanced optical character recognition, these MFPs can
correct the vertical orientation of pages mixed in upside down.
This conveniently saves you the hassle of having to rescan those
pages. The MFPs can also automatically determine scan
resolution and skip blank pages in a multi-page document.

Multicrop Function
The Multicrop function automatically creates separate files for
multiple different-sized documents—such as receipts and
bills—that are scanned simultaneously.
Multiple Distribution of Scanned Files
Scanned documents can be distributed in a number of ways. For
example, they can be sent as e-mail attachments or they can be
scanned directly to an FTP server for storage. A standardequipped compact PDF function ensures that PDF files are sent
and received smoothly.

In every respect, these MFPs have been designed to deliver
exceptional energy efficiency. As a result, they boast a TEC value
that is significantly lower than the maximum allowable values
determined by ENERGY STAR®.
