Section 1: Evaluating
Tabloid/A3 Color Printers
Print Quality
Many factors determine the quality of the print output delivered by a color
printer. Print head technology and image resolution, color registration and accuracy
and intuitive, user-friendly color adjustments are all key components of a printer’s
ability to deliver the results you demand to bring your high-end color print jobs
in-house.

Productivity
Productivity is a critical consideration when evaluating tabloid/A3 color
printers, such as the Phaser® 7100. Does the printer deliver the level of performance
required to support the workload of larger groups of users, and can it be expanded to
meet a workgroup’s evolving needs?
How the Phaser 7100 exceeds the
productivity requirement:
Printing Performance
The Phaser 7100 Color Printer features a print
speed of up to 30 ppm for both color and
black-and-white documents. And with a 667
MHz processor, and standard 1 GB of memory,
the Phaser 7100 is designed to handle a steady
flow of print jobs loaded with detailed images
and graphics.
For average print jobs of three pages or less,
the most important specification is first-pageout time, and the Phaser 7100 printer delivers
black-and-white pages in as few as 9 seconds,
and color pages in as few as 11 seconds.
Expandability
Duplexing
Numerous accessories are available to tailorfit the Phaser 7100 Color Printer to your
environment. For those users who print a
high volume of large, complex files, controller
memory can be expanded to a maximum of 2
GB with a 1 GB upgrade.
Automatic two-sided printing comes standard
on the Phaser 7100DN configuration, providing
more flexibility and helping reduce paper
consumption. Automatic two-sided printing is
optional with the Phaser 7100N configuration.
Plus, the optional Productivity Kit with 40
GB Hard Disk Drive provides more advanced
security features, Network Accounting
capability and the ability to store fonts.
For workgroups of 10 or more users, consider
increasing paper capacity by including up to
three additional 550-sheet trays. The Phaser
7100 can handle a total paper capacity of
2,050 sheets for optimum, uninterrupted
workgroup productivity.

Section 1: Evaluating
Tabloid/A3 Color Printers
Simplicity
Regardless of a tabloid/A3 color printer’s ability to produce a wide range of
complex print jobs, nothing should be complex about the printer’s usability.
Which is why the Phaser 7100® Color Printer features superior printer management
capabilities and innovative, helpful technologies. Even those with no experience using
advanced color printers will quickly become comfortable with the wealth of useful
features offered by the Phaser 7100.
How the Phaser 7100 Color
Printer exceeds the ease-of-use
requirement:
Location Flexibility
The Phaser 7100 Color Printer is available
as low-profile desktop printer, or it can be
configured into a highly productive floorstanding model.
Bidirectional Print Drivers
The Phaser 7100 printer includes print drivers
for Adobe® PostScript® 3™ and PCL® 6/5c.
Organized by tabs, the print drivers make job
programming easy and intuitive. The most
commonly used features are located on the
default tab, with advanced features easily
accessible when programming more complex
jobs. The print driver also sends print-job
updates, along with toner and paper supply
levels, to users’ desktops or even over the web.
Pop-up alerts immediately notify users of any
print problems —and how to fix them.
And Xerox®-exclusive Job Tracker monitors jobs
individually, immediately alerting a job owner via
pop-up window should a problem occur, as well
as providing helpful suggestions for solving it.

Section 1: Evaluating
Tabloid/A3 Color Printers
Deployment and Management
Deploying printers can be challenging, whether in a large organization or
small office. The process includes integrating the devices into your existing network
infrastructure and deploying print drivers to users’ computers. Evaluate whether the
driver deployment process can be automated. Also, evaluate the management tools
delivered with the printer, and whether they will ease the task of managing the device.
How the Phaser® 7100 Color
Printer exceeds the deployment
requirement:
Installation
The Phaser 7100 Color Printer is designed to
be setup and installed by non-technical users.
Supplies come pre-loaded, and the included
quick install guide helps install optional
accessories, connect the printer to your network
and a power source, and power-up the device.
The printer will automatically be assigned
an IP address and join the network via DHCP
(other networking protocols can be set at the
front panel). Device settings, such as language
selection and feature setup, are completed
either at the front panel or via remote
management software like Xerox® CentreWare®
Web or CentreWare Internet Services
(CentreWare IS), which is easily accessed by
simply entering the device’s IP address into
your web browser.
For IT administrators in Mac environments,
peace of mind comes from knowing that Xerox®
printers and MFPs are the devices of choice for
more Mac users than any other brand of office
equipment. The Phaser 7100 is no exception,
providing full compatibility with Mac operating
systems (Mac OS® X 10.5 and higher).
8
Xerox® Phaser® 7100 Evaluator Guide
Driver Deployment
With the Phaser 7100 Color Printer, print drivers
can be deployed centrally, thereby eliminating
the need for IT staff to perform desk-to-desk
manual installation of the driver software.
CentreWare Web wizards are provided to aid in
the processes of installing, troubleshooting and
upgrading print drivers for employees, freeing
up IT personnel for more pressing projects.
Driver support is delivered for Windows (XP and
later), and multiple UNIX and Linux platforms.
Also, all Xerox® drivers are WHQL (Windows
Hardware Quality Labs) certified, ensuring
compliance with Microsoft standards and
seamless compatibility with MS Windows
environments.
Deployment of multiple units is simple with the
ability to “clone” network configurations.
Plus, the Phaser 7100 supports two innovative
print drivers that can greatly simplify installing,
managing and supporting printers and
multifunction devices on the network, and
increase end-user productivity:
• Xerox® Mobile Express Driver® (X-MED)
makes it easy for mobile users to find, use
and manage Xerox® and non-Xerox devices in
every new location. Plug into a new network,
and X-MED automatically discovers available
printers and provides status and capability
information. Save a list of “favorite” printers
for each location, store application print
settings for use on any printer in any network,
and greatly reduce mobile support calls to IT.
• Xerox® Global Print Driver® (X-GPD) is
a truly universal print driver that lets IT
administrators install, upgrade and manage
Xerox® and non-Xerox devices from a single
driver. It provides a consistent, easy-to-use
interface for end-users, reducing the number
of support calls, and simplifying print services
management.
In addition, these drivers provide users with a
consistent single interface for all printers, with
real-time, dynamic reports of printer status. As
a result, users can easily identify the best printer
for their needs, quickly choose the correct
options and see updated consumables status
without the assistance of IT.
To learn more, and download X-GPD and
X-MED free, visit www.xerox.com/global
and www.xerox.com/mobile.
How the Phaser® 7100 Color
Printer exceeds the management
requirement:
Xerox® Management Software
Xerox® CentreWare® Web is a powerful device
management solution for IT departments.
CentreWare Web is free software that eases
the chore of installing, configuring, managing,
monitoring and pulling reports from SNMPcompliant networked printers and multifunction
printers throughout your enterprise —
regardless of vendor. Xerox also addresses
enterprise asset management through
compatibility with network management
tools for Sun, Novell, Microsoft and other
environments.
The Phaser 7100 Color Printer also includes
CentreWare IS, an embedded web server that
allows users and IT personnel to perform
detailed status checks on the system and
consumables, administer system settings, and
manage access and accounting controls via any
standard web browser.
