Creating a Simpler, Secure Workflow: Xerox Technology
Xerox (NYSE: XRX) today introduced ConnectKey™, a software system embedded in Xerox multifunction printers (MFPs) and a set of
solutions that respond to an increasingly mobile workforce and the need for more advanced IT security across connected devices.
Sixteen ConnectKey MFPs – including the new WorkCentre® 5800 and 7800 Series – will use the industry’s first embedded security
protection from McAfee, giving IT managers more control and peace of mind in “bring your own device” (BYOD) workplaces.
ConnectKey MFPs also have an extra layer of security with Cisco’s TrustSec, which protects data paths to and from the devices.
With ConnectKey’s open Application Programming Interface (API), sales channel partners, systems integrators and resellers can
develop and embed apps on the MFP with no additional software requirements.
“ConnectKey was designed for one purpose: to simplify how work gets done in a secure, ‘always on’ world,” said Douraid Zaghouani,
president, Channel Partner Operations, Xerox. “Through the MFP as a secure hub, ConnectKey’s features include the ability to scan
and upload documents to cloud repositories, send business-critical documents directly into workflow processes and print securely
and easily from any mobile device. It’s Xerox innovation that takes hassles out of workdays and adds more productivity into workplaces.”
Concord Hospitality Enterprises Company, a hotel management and development company based in Raleigh, N.C., recognizes the
benefits of ConnectKey – such as scanning to SharePoint and mobile printing – in its headquarters and plans to expand these services
to its 90 hotels in North America.
“From an innovation standpoint, ConnectKey is great. My only regret is that we didn't have it sooner,” said Brian Cornell, chief information
officer, Information Technology, Concord Hospitality.
Work simplified with MFP apps, cloud access, mobile printing
ConnectKey’s solutions give IT professionals, channel partners and large, medium and small workplaces fast and easy ways to get work
· Standard apps or build-your-own: Xerox’s App Studio will let users and channel partners customize apps that make daily work
processes faster. For example, a custom app for a health insurance company could scan reimbursement claims directly into the
payment system from the MFP screen.
Cloud access: With a single touch – and no middleware – ConnectKey Share to Cloud moves documents to repositories, such as
SharePoint Online, Google Drive, DropBox, Evernote, PaperPort Anywhere and Salesforce.com. It also allows automatic
conversion to searchable PDF, Word or Excel, making documents easier to manage for the future.
Connect to SharePoint: Office workers can browse, convert and store documents in SharePoint and network folders, or store directly
to their SharePoint My Site or home folder. With a focus on ease of installation and maintenance, it’s designed for small and midsized
Easy IT integration: ConnectKey MFPs can be managed as a central part of the network, much like servers, for straightforward set-up
and service. Troubleshooting and training can be addressed remotely by IT administrators, or self-help can be initiated with online
support and videos on the front panel.
· Print from anywhere: Workers can print from any email-enabled mobile device without special software with Xerox Mobile Print, or
use apps with additional convenience features developed for iOS, Android, Windows and Blackberry. Users have the added flexibility of
choosing to implement mobile print as either a cloud-based or on-site solution.

Xerox DocuShare Automates TLC Vision’s Accounts Payable Process
The average cost to process a single invoice manually is $24, according to IOMA in 2011. This expense combined with the time
involved with a manual accounts payable process prompted TLC Vision to engage Xerox DocuShare to automate its accounts
DocuShare, Xerox’s enterprise content management platform, helped address challenges presented by TLC’s paper-based accounts
payable process, including the delay caused by each of the 62 offices across North America sending invoices through the postal
system to a central corporate office for review and payment. Employees at each of the offices now scan invoices, and through the
new automated workflow in DocuShare, the digitized documents are routed to shared and secure folders for approval.
“DocuShare is a Web-based environment – ideal for enabling our mobile and remote workforce to stay connected,” said Delano Ligu,
director, Technical Services, TLC Vision. “It saves people time, makes them more efficient in their work and reduces errors that can
be caused by a manual process.”
The automated accounts payable process has substantially reduced late payments as the speed of invoice processing and staff
efficiency improve. Once scanned, the status of an invoice can be easily tracked, increasing the accuracy and integrity of TLC’s
Following the success of the automated accounts payable work flow, almost every department in TLC adopted DocuShare as the
main file repository.

Xerox eConcierge Offers Resellers New Ways to Build Business
Xerox is making it easier for resellers to grow their business and stay connected with their small- and medium-sized customers with two
new offerings within Xerox eConcierge®, a cloud-based supplies replenishment program for networked printers and multifunction printers.
New to the program is the Xerox Replacement Cartridge line, allowing resellers to offer their customers savings through a lower-cost,
high-quality alternative to OEM cartridges. Not only will resellers make it easier for customers to replace supplies for any manufacturer’s
device, Xerox eConcierge helps resellers grow revenue and margins by simplifying the hassle of order tracking.
Resellers who buy through Xerox’s distribution partner Supplies Network can now offer the program to their customers. Under this
arrangement, resellers maintain the pricing and shipping rates established with Supplies Network, allowing them to offer Xerox
eConcierge while maintaining the same profit margins.
“With these additions to Xerox eConcierge the door is wide open for resellers to take full advantage of what the program can offer their
customers – and them,” said Kurt Schmelz, president, North American Reseller Sales, Xerox. “Xerox is focused on helping resellers
succeed by delivering unique products to differentiate them in the small business marketplace.”
Through Xerox eConcierge, resellers help their customers save money with free lifetime service coverage on Xerox devices – worth an
average of $1,280 – and on reliable replacement cartridges for non-Xerox devices, up to a 50 percent savings.
One of the many reseller partners benefiting from Xerox eConcierge is Atlantic Office & Laser Products, Inc., a Baltimore-based office
equipment and print solutions provider. The reseller uses the program to convert customers to a managed print model, lowering costs
and improving efficiencies.
“With eConcierge we can stay relevant with our customers, offering services and savings that are critical in today’s competitive marketplace,”
said Michael Trevisan, president, Atlantic Office & Laser Products, Inc.

Xerox’s WorkCentre 3315/3325 Multifunction Printers (MFPs) and Phaser 3320 Printer can produce up to 33 and 37 pages-
per-minute respectively – with the first page coming out as fast as 6.5 seconds on each machine. For larger print jobs, an optional

Xerox Launches New ColorQube
Small businesses and enterprises share a common set of challenges – finding new customers and staying productive. Xerox’s (NYSE: XRX)
new color multifunction printers (MFPs) can help turn these challenges into opportunities by making it affordable to create colorful
marketing materials while managing office functions ranging from printing to scanning with ease.
Compact enough to fit into any office environment, including on a desk, the Xerox ColorQube® 8700/8900 Color Multifunction Printers use
solid ink technology – a cartridge-free, crayon-like ink stick – to produce high-quality prints such as sales brochures, flyers and presentations.
With the ColorQube, any size business can create professional-looking, colorful marketing materials and other documents on a range of
media, including recycled paper.
Cost-savings can be gained with Hybrid Color Pricing Plans, allowing businesses to pay only for the amount of color on a given page. This is
an important differentiation when using just a little bit of color, such as a company logo on letterhead.
But saving money on color prints doesn’t have to come at the expense of sustainability, functionality or security. Companies can
maximize resources and productivity with features that include:
Energy-saving methods like Intelligent Ready, which switches to low-power mode during downtimes. Compared to laser MFPs in the
same class, the ColorQube 8700/8900 MFPs produce up to 90 percent less printing waste and use 17 percent less life cycle energy.
A 7-inch touch screen makes it easy to program jobs, including printing, scanning, distributing and organizing documents.
Embedded security features, such as image overwrite and encryption, protect the documents, hard drive and network from
“There are roughly six million small and mid-size businesses in the United States and most are focused on growing their business,” said
Shell Haffner, manager, Desktop Product Marketing, Xerox. “Xerox’s ColorQube MFPs provide hassle free, fast, quality color printing – a
simple and affordable approach to getting real work done.”
ColorQube 8700/8900 Support Xerox’s Managed Print Services
The MFPs are offered as part of Xerox’s Managed Print Services (MPS), which helps companies control print spend. As the MPS market
leader, Xerox works with businesses of all sizes to increase productivity and achieve savings up to 30 percent.

Xerox DocuShare 6.6 Speeds Daily Document Processes
Managing documents and reducing costs just got easier with Xerox Corporation’s newest DocuShare® enterprise content management
(ECM) software. DocuShare 6.6 automates the entire lifecycle of documents, images and forms – from the point of capture until they are
no longer needed. By doing so, DocuShare 6.6 helps organizations of all sizes redirect time spent on paper-based processes to focus
on their business objectives.
New features and add-ons of DocuShare 6.6 include:
* DocuShare Lifecycle Manager keeps documents current to meet compliance standards by notifying administrators when updates are
needed. Documents are destroyed when the retention setting expires.
* DocuShare Enterprise Capture digitizes large volumes of paper documents – up to two million pieces – into searchable data through
integration with ABBYY FlexiCapture®.
* SharePoint integration allows easy access to DocuShare content and simultaneous searching – with the ability to browse and
manage documents, collections and workspaces.
* Workflow and eForms enhancements offer expanded content rules and permissions for document collections, and the ability to
add attachments and authentication to eForms – supporting solutions such as invoice and claims processing, and case management.
Workflows can be easily integrated with DocuShare add-ons to create a complete solution.
Ventura County to Transform Paper-based Processes
General Services Agency (GSA) Business Solutions of California’s Ventura County provides document management services for
government agencies. GSA leverages DocuShare to automate document workflows, saving time and reducing paper usage.
By deploying DocuShare eForms to the County’s parking permit process, GSA has improved the processing time by more than 50 percent.
The County will save more than $9,000 in paper and staff time, and now have instant access to vehicle and permit data.
With enhanced eForms available with DocuShare 6.6, the County will automate other paper-based processes, such as badge requests,
facility work orders and inter-office memos.

Xerox Mobile Offerings: Office Workers to Print From Anywhere, Anytime
ROCHESTER, N.Y. -- Xerox Corporation (NYSE: XRX) is helping mobile office workers and IT professionals
stay productive with three tools that make it easier than ever to print regardless of location.
The Xerox Mobile Print Solution lets mobile professionals easily and securely print e-mails, presentations and
other business documents from any smart phone or e-mail-enabled device.
Enhanced Mobile Express and Global Print Drivers tell workers instantly what printers are available to their laptop
for fast printing options for the roaming workforce, while offering simplified print management by IT staff.
“No two mobile workers are the same – from the executive reviewing a presentation on his phone en route to a
staff meeting to the NYC-based employee working at Paris headquarters – but all need an easy and secure way
to print,” said Rick Dastin, president, Enterprise Business Group, Xerox Corporation. “Our approach delivers
simplicity for any location, helping mobile workers focus more on their business and less on how to print.”
Smart printing via smart phone
The Xerox Mobile Print Solution allows users to print from e-mail-enabled devices without having to download
drivers or applications. Users simply e-mail the file in its original format, such as Microsoft Word or Adobe PDF, to
a secure server. A confirmation code is then e-mailed to the user to securely release the document for printing from
any Xerox Extensible Interface Platform®-enabled multifunction printer (MFP).
The Xerox Mobile Print Solution runs on a company’s private server to maintain full compliance with the existing
security infrastructure. The solution also:
- Preserves all formatting and data when printing Microsoft Office documents, just like printing from the desktop.
- Offers full preview of the document on the MFP’s user interface before printing.
- Provides the same print settings such as duplex, color and finishing options that are available to users on a desktop.
- Simplified print drivers
Enhancements have also been added to both the Xerox Mobile Express and Global Print Drivers. These tools allow
mobile workers to print to virtually any printer or MFP available on the network, regardless of location or brand, and
reduce the time spent managing print drivers for various devices.
The updated drivers:
- Eliminate the need for IT professionals to install new drivers to support full functionality on current and future
- Provide access to the latest set of features on Xerox printers and MFPs such as Color by Words, which displays
simple words to select colors such as “red apple” or “blue sky” for easy and accurate color printing.
- Help workers identify print jobs in busy workgroups without banner pages by automatically including user and
job information in the unused page margin eliminating wasted pages.
- Offer Earth Smart print driver defaults that can be set to include two-sided printing, proof print, recycled paper
and draft mode.
With the new Global Print Driver, IT administrators can also “push” driver settings out to employees on the network,
such as duplex printing as a default, without having to reinstall the entire driver.
The Mobile Express and Global Print Drivers are free and currently available for download at
The Xerox Mobile Print Solution will be available for early customer installs beginning in the fourth quarter, with
general worldwide availability in early 2011.

Xerox’s New Multifunction Printer Combines Affordable Color with High-Productivity Workflow Tools
Seven additions to the black-and-white portfolio deliver enhanced printing, workflow and security features
NORWALK, Conn., April 19, 2010 – Xerox Corporation’s new color and black-and-white multifunction printers
(MFPs) offer advanced scanning, document workflow features and security enhancements at an affordable price.
Aimed at budget-minded small- and medium-size businesses (SMBs), the Xerox WorkCentre® 7120 color MFP
prints high-impact color documents, such as presentations and budget charts. The MFP prints color and black-and-
white documents at speeds up to 20 ppm using Xerox’s Emulsion Aggregate High Gloss (EA-HG) toner, which
produces smaller, more consistent toner particles, to create crisp text and sharper color images.
“Today’s MFPs do far more than copy and print – they improve the way work gets done,” said Rick Dastin,
president, Global Product Delivery Group, Xerox Corporation. “The WorkCentre 7120 helps SMB’s maximize
office productivity and produce affordable, impactful color documents.”
The WorkCentre 7120 is equipped with advanced document management features that add convenience and
make office work easier:
-- Document routing to e-mail, network and content management software simultaneously for repeatable workflows
-- Advanced color scanning up to 55 ppm
-- Faxing over IP, fax forward to e-mail and scan to or print from USB
-- Xerox Auditron monitors color printing costs
The MFP also provides opportunities for SMBs to lower their environmental impact:
-- One of the most compact hallway color MFPs
-- Consumes 3.08 watts of power in sleep mode
-- Route and preview incoming documents on the interface or at PC to eliminate needless printing
-- Earth Smart print driver defaults include two-sided printing with no banner pages
In addition, Xerox is updating its line of black-and-white MFPs. The Xerox WorkCentre 5700 Series includes
seven new MFPs that handle everything from general office documents to high-volume print jobs. With print
speeds up to 90 ppm, the MFPs can:
-- Print, copy, scan or fax without interruption for quick turnarounds
-- Scan documents in color
-- Move to the next job if the first job in queue is held up due to a lack of resources with the Print Around feature
The WorkCentre 5700 Series comes equipped with advanced security features, including full support for the
IPv6 network security standard, Image Overwrite to electronically “shred” data, fax isolation to prevent
unauthorized access to data and Network Authentication to restrict access to scan, e-mail and network fax features.
“With advanced document security and workflow tools, the WorkCentre 5700 Series can help IT departments
solve their most difficult document management challenges,” said Dastin.
Both the WorkCentre 7120 and WorkCentre 5700 Series are built on Xerox's Extensible Interface Platform®
(EIP), a technology that can be used to create customized workflow applications. For example, a law firm can
scan information directly to a client folder from the MFPs’ color user interface without specifying the client name.
Availability and price
Starting at $6,999 U.S. list, the WorkCentre 7120 will be available in the Americas in May and immediately in
Western Europe and all other markets including Russia and South Africa through Xerox direct sales, agents,
authorized resellers and dealers, and concessionaires or by calling 1-866-480-3119. Starting at $7,475 U.S. list,
the WorkCentre 5700 Series will be available worldwide starting in May through Xerox direct sales, authorized
sales agents and Global Imaging Systems.

four consecutive years Xerox has been recognized by J.D. Power and Associates for providing “An Outstanding
Customer Service Experience” in Technology Service and Support.
All of the devices are ENERGY STAR® qualified and part of Xerox’s Green World Alliance.

Xerox Launches Audio Visual Solutions
NORWALK, Conn., Aug. 06, 2009 -- Xerox Corporation (NYSE: XRX) today announced an expansion into the
audio-visual market with the launch of Xerox Audio Visual Solutions. Previously known as Southern Business
Communications, a subsidiary of Global Imaging Systems, Inc., the AV provider became part of Xerox when the
company acquired Global Imaging Systems in 2007.
Southern Business Communications now becomes Xerox Audio Visual Solution, continuing to offer design,
installation, integration, maintenance and training on a variety of AV products to the education, commercial, military
and government markets in the U.S.
"For more than a half-century, Xerox has been in the business of making it easier to share information in schools,
in offices and in organizations of any size -- on paper, on the laptop and online," said Christa Carone, vice president
of marketing for Xerox. "Adding the Xerox brand to an already successful company in the AV marketplace adds
even more relevance to our role in helping to manage and share documents and communications in any form."
Xerox Audio Visual Solutions has integrated thousands of classrooms with AV products. The company is currently
handling the integration of more than 5,000 classrooms in Gwinnett County Public Schools, Georgia's largest
school system, with ceiling-mounted projection systems, sound reinforcement technology, and wall-mounted system
controls. Within the education market, Xerox Audio Visual Solutions is the largest North American dealer of products
from SMART Technologies™, including SMART Board interactive white boards.
"From the classroom to the board room, we have grown to a leading provider of the most advanced and innovative
AV solutions," said Dan Boylan, president, Xerox Audio Visual Solutions. "By leveraging the value of the Xerox
brand and its close association with simplifying how work gets done, we will find new ways to integrate our combined
technology with the needs of our customers."
According to Frank Cannata, president at Marketing Research Consultants, by adopting the Xerox brand,
Southern Business Communications not only receives a jump start in terms of recognition as it expands into new
markets, but the ability to link its AV offerings with Xerox printing and document management services. "In our
view, the promotion of a company starts with the brand," said Cannata. "By taking the Xerox name, Southern
Business Communications will more easily be able to grow its geographic footprint and gain access in markets
where it doesn't have presence."
Xerox Audio Visual Solutions will continue to operate independently as a Global Imaging Systems company with
its own U.S. marketing strategies and sales initiatives.
About Xerox Audio Visual Solutions
Xerox Audio Visual Solutions, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Xerox Corporation, has been providing audio visual
equipment and systems to the education, commercial, military and government markets since 1981. The
company delivers total audio visual and video communication solutions including design, installation, integration,

- printing up to 35 color pages per minute (ppm), to the Xerox WorkCentre™ 6400 color MFP that prints, copies,
scans and faxes. The Xerox WorkCentre 7400 color MFP series offers additional features such as advanced
paper handling and finishing capabilities for booklet making and hole-punching.
The products build on a heritage in color printing that has consistently earned top marks from customers. For the
second straight year, Xerox products were rated "best" overall when compared to competitors such as Canon,
Hewlett-Packard and Ricoh in the 2008 Industry Analysts Inc.'s annual Color End-User Survey.
"Color by Words," a breakthrough innovation feature of the Phaser 7500, is a color-matching technology that
answers the customers' need for color accuracy. Users can select from a unique menu of words, such as "red
apple," "blue sky" or "green grass," to fine tune the colors they want. With Color by Words, everyone from a
graphic designer to the part-time PowerPoint warrior can get the right color and vibrant prints the first time.
"We've been hard at work bringing our advanced MFP and printer technologies to our entire product line,
delivering increased productivity to workgroups of all sizes," said Rick Dastin, president, Global Products Delivery
Group, Xerox Corporation. "These new desktop products now have the same security features and workflow
ease of use as our console machines."

and Medium-Sized Businesses
NORWALK, Conn., Feb. 23, 2009 -- Xerox Corporation (NYSE: XRX) today introduced two new, affordable
office printers to help small and mid-sized businesses more easily add color to office documents.
"Businesses of all sizes are recognizing that professional-looking color documents leave a positive, lasting
impression with customers leading to new business opportunities," said Rick Dastin, president, Global Products
Delivery Group, Xerox Corporation. "Color in the office is no longer a luxury, it's affordable and necessary to

Overloaded With Information? Get Back to Business in 2009
Xerox Scientists Offer Simple Ways to Save Time and Manage Information Overload
NORWALK, Conn., Dec. 02, 2008 -- Should I disconnect the cell phone? Boycott voice mail? Throw the PDA
out the window? As a chaotic 2008 comes to a close and workers resolve to regain sanity in 2009, where do
they go for answers to questions about how to cope with information overload?
For more than 30 years, Xerox Corporation (NYSE: XRX) social scientists have been studying how workers
communicate, organize and generally get things done. In fact, they pioneered the science of ethnography, where
researchers track the habits of workers as they go about their day.
Inspired by their Future of Work study, here are nine tips to help you save time and manage information overload.
Breathe. It may sound simple, but not enough people take the time to do it. So schedule breaks into your daily
working routine. It helps productivity - even stepping away from your desk for a moment. Even a quick nap helps
you regenerate and be more productive. Research supports this, we swear.
Simplify Your Schedule. Try scheduling all of your meetings on specific days so you have more time on non-meeting
days to process information coming in - it's much easier to focus when you don't have a meeting looming in 20 minutes.
Back It Up. No information is worse than too much. Make sure you have a solution in place for regular back-up.
De-clutter Your Desktop (both of them). File, pile or toss papers as soon as you receive them. Scan and save
important documents to reduce desktop clutter instead of filing. On your computer, consider getting rid of folders
altogether and using desktop search engines to find things when you need them.
Touch it Once. Often we waste time dealing with the same piece of information again and again. Respond as
soon as you receive it, put it in its file or delete it/shred it the first time you touch it.
Forget the Free Stuff. It comes at a price (e-mail garbage and unsolicited offers). Choose quality over quantity.
Manage your bills and accounts online and sign up for the do not call lists and the no junk mail lists.
Use Your Tools. Make use of your phone for getting the right info at the right time. For instance, you don't have
to waste time printing maps if you can access them from your phone. GPS phones have the smarts to give you
the right information based on your actual location.
RSS Reprieve. Sign up for an aggregator. It helps you see all your news in one place.
Manage Mobile Madness. Use a mobile device with e-mail support to make hours way from your desk more
productive. Keeping track of e-mail throughout the day can help you anticipate future work, and take care of mini-
projects as they arise instead of waiting until later to sift through a huge pile of e-mail.
"Tackling information overload is important for most global businesses today, tomorrow and five years from now,"
said Jenny Perotti, ethnographer in the Xerox Innovation Group. "Our findings will help people around the world
leverage the tools they have today and plan strategies and techniques that will enable effective collaboration and
information management in the future."
The findings from the ethnography team are used to help Xerox customers understand their future workforce,
and they also impact the design of Xerox products and services to make the future worker more efficient.
After launching the "sharing" era with the first xerographic copier 70 years ago, Xerox now helps customers
navigate the flood of information. The company has kept pace with innovations that help clear the path between
paper and digital content, cut through the clutter and make information relevant again. For more on information

Xerox Announces Document Management to Go
New Xerox Travel Scanner allows users to manage documents from anywhere
PLEASANTON, Calif., Sept. 25, 2008 -- Xerox Corporation (NYSE: XRX) today announced a small, yet powerful
mobile scanner that handles the document needs of business travelers, from expense receipts to business cards
and documents, for only $199.99. The Xerox Travel Scanner 100 shares many of the industry-leading software
applications that come bundled with other Xerox DocuMate™ scanners, so now users can work with the same
tools on the road that they are familiar with in their offices, delivering document management "to go."
The Xerox Travel Scanner measures only 2" x 1.5" x 11.4", weighs 10.6 ounces --less than a can of diet soda --
and has a resolution of 600 dpi with 24-bit color. Because the Xerox Travel Scanner is powered through the USB
port on a personal computer, users don't have to worry about finding a wall outlet while on the road. The Travel
Scanner also includes patented Paper Driven and AutoLaunch technologies from Visioneer, Inc. so users can
automatically start scanning documents as soon as they are inserted into the scanner.
"Business professionals want the best, easy-to-use products and full function solutions whether on the go or in
the office," said John Capurso, vice president of marketing for Visioneer, Xerox's authorized licensee. "Now
business travelers can scan, organize and share any document they encounter, from receipts, business cards,
and notes to photos, office documents and directions. The combination of size, mobility and software makes the
Xerox Travel Scanner the perfect companion for traveling and mobile professionals."
Powerful Yet Easy-to-Use Scanner
The Xerox Travel Scanner can scan and convert documents into searchable Adobe Portable Document Format
(PDF) files that are easily organized, shared and protected. It is designed to automatically save, at the user's option,
any scanned item into a text-searchable PDF file, while at the same time maintaining the appearance of the
It features industry-leading software. Included are award-winning Nuance PaperPort document management
software; Nuance OmniPage Pro for precision OCR analysis software with advanced layout detection and logical
form recognition so that users can create text searchable PDF files without retyping; and NewSoft Presto! BizCard,
which accurately reads business card information and imports it to contact managers such as Microsoft Outlook,
ACT, and Goldmine, as well as PDAs and smart phones.
The Xerox Travel Scanner software enables scanned receipts to be combined with virtually any expense report
form. Visioneer OneTouch® technology allows users to scan to the "destination" by simply inserting the document
into the scanner, eliminating multiple steps usually required to save scanned documents in popular file formats.
Integrated with Kofax® VRS™ technology, Visioneer OneTouch technology assures perfect scans from imperfect

New Xerox Multifunction Printers Bring High-End Printing Options to SMBs
Xerox Corporation (NYSE: XRX) today introduced two new desktop multifunction printers (MFPs) that offer high-
end scanning and fax capabilities at an affordable price. The new Phaser™ 3300MFP multifunction printer and
the WorkCentre™ 4260MFP multifunction printer, help trim the amount of time workers spend handling documents
and managing information.
Priced at $599, the Phaser 3300MFP delivers printing, copying, scanning and color faxing capabilities. With print
and copy speeds up to 30 pages per minute (ppm), it's faster and can handle more pages per month than other
products in its class, including the comparably priced Hewlett-Packard LaserJet M2727nf MFP. High capacity
toner cartridges and a toner-saving mode also help busy offices reduce running costs.
With the ability to scan in color and black-and-white directly to a USB thumb drive, e-mail or the network,
documents can be easily shared or stored. The Phaser 3300MFP is also equipped with Xerox Scan to PC
Desktop™ software, which allows users to send a document from the MFP straight to their PC desktop for viewing,
editing and storing.
The multifunction printer can also tackle a range of everyday office print jobs including automatic two-sided printing.
It has a 50-sheet multipurpose tray that can handle a wide variety of paper weights and sizes ranging from postcards
to legal-size documents.
For offices looking for more muscle, the WorkCentre 4260 multifunction printer is packed with advanced features
and starts at $2,999. The WorkCentre 4260 is Xerox's fastest desktop multifunction system with print and copy
speeds up to 55 ppm - a rate that makes it nearly 20 percent faster than the HP LaserJet M4345 MFP.
"Small and mid-sized businesses demand office equipment that is reliable and helps get work done faster," said
Rick Dastin, president, Xerox Office Group. "These new products bring some of the technology from our high-end
multifunction printers to the lower end of our portfolio to help businesses of all sizes better manage documents."
The WorkCentre 4260 delivers powerful workflow tools at an affordable price. With ID Card Copy, workers save
time when copying both sides of an ID or insurance card onto one side of a page. ID Card Copy is especially helpful
in healthcare organizations when adding information to patient files. Fax Forward to E-mail saves time and paper by
automatically routing incoming faxes to an e-mail address. The WorkCentre 4260 also comes with automatic two-
sided printing and the Save Print feature lets users store frequently used documents and forms on the hard drive
for fast printing anytime.
The WorkCentre 4260's multitasking capabilities allow multiple workers to print, copy, scan and fax at the same
time. If one print job is held up because of a lack of resources, such as needing legal-sized paper, the Print
Around feature makes sure other print jobs will continue without interruption, saving workers from unnecessary
downtime. In addition, the WorkCentre 4260 comes with a seven-inch color graphical touch screen that is simple
to use and not typically found on this class of product.
Other updates to the office portfolio
To help SMBs do more with their color documents, the WorkCentre 5225 black-and-white multifunction printer
now includes a color scanning configuration. The WorkCentre 5225 prints up to 25 ppm and offers Xerox's
Extensible Interface Platform™ (EIP), which allows independent software vendors and developers to create
applications for the device and to customize the touch screen.
In addition, Xerox is upgrading the software on its WorkCentre 5600 black-and-white multifunction series to keep
pace with today's ever-changing IT standards and protocols. With support for IPv6 and compatibility for Microsoft's
Web Services on Devices (WSD), the WorkCentre 5600 series - with speeds ranging from 32 ppm to 87 ppm -
becomes even more powerful for IT professionals.
The Phaser 3300MFP and the WorkCentre 4260 are ENERGY STAR® qualified and available immediately
worldwide through Xerox direct sales, agents, resellers, dealers, concessionaires, by calling 1-866-480-3119, or
going online at www.xerox.com/direct. The WorkCentre 5632, WorkCentre 5638, WorkCentre 5645 and
WorkCentre 5655 will include the software upgrade in North America on October 1. The WorkCentre 5665,
WorkCentre 5675 and WorkCentre 5687 will be updated later this year.

New Xerox Production Scanner Delivers Dependable Features and
Performance for Document and Imaging Workflows
Enterprise document management solution increases productivity and reduces the total cost of scanning
PLEASANTON, Calif., Sept. 03, 2008 -- Xerox Corporation (NYSE: XRX) and Visioneer, Inc. today announced
a new production scanner for document and imaging workflows that combines reliable, high-speed hardware with
a professional software bundle, making it a cost-effective choice for service bureaus, busy office environments
that handle a wide variety of documents, and businesses with complex document scanning requirements.
The Xerox DocuMate™ 765 document scanner combines high image quality, a 10,000-page daily duty cycle,
65-pages-per-minute scanning speed, and easy operation. Powered by Visioneer OneTouch® scanning
technology, the DocuMate 765 scanner features industry leading software, including Kofax® VirtualReScan™
4.2 Professional AIPE-EBC. Taken together, the Xerox DocuMate 765 scanner and the Kofax VRS Professional
bundle translate into measurable savings - fewer manual steps, reduced storage requirements and less operator
intervention - and significantly improved image quality.
"The combination of high performance hardware, perfectly engineered with award-winning software and drivers,
makes the DocuMate 765 scanner a superior product choice for production document and image scanning," said
John Capurso, vice president of marketing for Visioneer. "The extensibility of Visioneer OneTouch technology, which
seamlessly delivers scanned documents to enterprise content management (ECM) applications, is unmatched by
any other vendor in the industry."
The DocuMate 765 scanner has the ability to scan a wide range of document sizes and supports long document
scanning up to 34 inches. The scanner also has an easy-to-read LCD on the front that reminds the user of the
resolution, color mode, file type, processing and final destination of the scanned document.
Perfect Scans from Imperfect Originals
Ensuring that scanned images are of the best quality possible is critical to document management workflow. The
DocuMate 765 scanner includes Visioneer OneTouch® with Kofax® VRS™ technology and provides both high-
quality image enhancement and increased productivity with Kofax VRS Professional for auto-everything scanning,
including automatically rotating pages, detecting and skipping blank pages, and removing background colors that
may interfere with optical character recognition. The DocuMate 765 scanner also incorporates ultrasonic multifeed,
which uses sound waves to detect if there are two documents going through the scanner at the same time.
VRS 4.2 Professional improves workflow and reduces the total time needed to scan even the largest volumes of
mixed batch documents.
Powerful Scanning at the Touch of a Button
Visioneer OneTouch technology allows users to scan to the "destination" of their choice by pressing a single
button, eliminating multiple steps usually required to save scanned documents in popular file formats. The scanner
includes Nuance OmniPage Pro OCR for converting high volumes of paper and forms into files that can be
searched and edited. The DocuMate 765 scanner has the ability to instantly scan a document into a searchable
PDF file, and send it to one of the many ECM applications that Visioneer has developed links to such as Microsoft
SharePoint®, Kofax Ascent® Collection Server, EMC Captiva® QuickScan Pro®, FileBound®, Laserfiche®,
DocuWare®, Xerox DocuShare™ and ScanFlow® Store, and/or to devices such as printers and networked storage
systems in just one touch.
Reduced Service Calls and Extended Scanner Life
The DocuMate 765 scanner's design allows the hardware to be maintained directly by the user, virtually eliminating
the need for maintenance service calls through a user utility to track scanner usage and status. The scanner uses
a xenon lamp to illuminate the document as it passes through the scanner. The lamp is only on when documents
are being scanned, substantially extending the lamp's life and reducing required maintenance.
With easy-to-change and easy-to-clean parts, ongoing maintenance can be handled by the user. DocuMate 765
scanner roller kits last an average of 20 percent longer than many of its competitors, reducing the number of
service calls required.
Pricing and Availability
The Xerox DocuMate 765 scanner is priced at $6,995 and is available immediately through retail and online
channel partners and major resellers. The DocuMate 765 scanner is also a trade compliant (TAA) device.

Xerox DocuShare Express Makes it Simple for Businesses to Manage
Documents; Drive Efficiencies in Information Overload Era
PALO ALTO, Calif., Aug. 19, 2008 -- Businesses of all sizes are experiencing information overload - the barrage
of papers, e-mails, electronic documents and other forms of content that are circulated on a daily basis. For small
and mid-sized businesses (SMB), cutting through the clutter can be a time consuming and expensive task. Enter
DocuShare™ Express - Xerox Corporation's (NYSE: XRX) content management software, tailored exclusively for
the SMB market to help manage business critical documents with ease and affordability.
DocuShare Express is an electronic filing system that provides easy storage, retrieval and sharing of information.
Its Web-based folders can accommodate paper and digital content ranging from scanned documents, spreadsheets
and Word documents to e-mails, blogs and wikis. DocuShare Express also includes a quick install process that
rapidly uploads the program and requires little technical knowledge to install.
"Smaller businesses can find it tough to avoid the black hole of information overload," said David Smith, vice
president, DocuShare Business Unit, Xerox. "DocuShare Express puts SMBs on equal ground with large
enterprises when it comes to managing information and gaining efficiencies."
Keeping track of paper and digital information can be difficult in a small business setting where administrative
resources are limited. For example, in a doctor's office regulatory materials, pharmacy procedures and training
manuals need to be updated frequently and can be costly to print, store and keep organized. DocuShare Express
allows employees to review materials online, anytime - fostering communication and collaboration without straining
DocuShare Express also includes a time-saving imaging and scanning feature, which enables documents to be
uploaded to specific DocuShare folders using special scan cover sheets. Easy upgrades to DocuShare or
DocuShare CPX allow SMBs to add more advanced content management capabilities as necessary.
EIP Brings Additional Efficiencies to DocuShare
Xerox has also added advanced scanning features to its entire DocuShare™ content management platform
through an Extensible Interface Platform™ (EIP) connector. By simply touching the screen of an EIP-enabled Xerox
multifunction device, users can scan documents directly into DocuShare folders.
The EIP connector, an intuitive one-step scan solution, offers greater efficiencies and environmental gains, since
paper files can be viewed, shared and searched online without further duplication or distribution.
Pricing and Availability
The entry-level U.S. list price for DocuShare Express starts at $1,800 for 10 users and 10 read-only seats. It will
be available through Xerox direct sales representatives and channel partners. DocuShare Express will be rolled
out globally starting in September.

New Xerox Desktop Document Scanner Boosts Productivity
PLEASANTON, Calif., July 31, 2008 -- Xerox Corporation (NYSE: XRX) today announced a new, easy-to-use
document scanner that help users be more productive by scanning, e-mailing and copying their documents at
the touch of a single button.
The Xerox DocuMate™ 162 color document scanner scans up to 50 images per minute (ipm) in duplex mode and
includes a 50-page automatic document feeder that handles everything from business cards and checks to legal
size documents. And it includes Visioneer OneTouch® scanning technology with advanced TWAIN and certified
ISIS drivers that will enable communication with hundreds of enterprise content management (ECM) and document
image management (DIM) software solutions.
"Having the DocuMate 162 scanner on your desk is like having a personal assistant," said John Capurso, vice
president of marketing for the Xerox DocuMate scanners. "Its next generation scanner technology solves real-
world problems such as capturing a multi-page contract in searchable PDF so that the document can be searched
by content; scanning receipts that are hardly legible; or scanning colored multi-part shipping forms that are smudged
and difficult to read and then electronically filing them with transit records. The Xerox DocuMate 162 scanner
combines speed and high functionality with ease of use and affordability so that the scanner adapts to the
customer's document and capture needs, not the other way around."
With a small footprint that fits on any desk, the scanner can quickly convert paper documents into searchable
PDF files that are readily shared, organized and protected. Visioneer OneTouch® with Kofax® VRS™ technology
enhances imperfect originals, straightens and automatically crops them with the touch of a button.
"Anyone who has a filing cabinet will immediately discover the benefit of making a small investment in a desktop
scanner," Capurso said. "The time saved alone in filing, searching and retrieving paper will pay back the customer
investment in only a few months, making it virtually a no-risk purchase."
Scanning at the Touch of a Button
Visioneer OneTouch technology allows users to scan to the "destination" of their choice by pressing a single button,
eliminating multiple steps in sending scanned documents to predetermined applications or devices. Scanner buttons
come pre-programmed to scan, e-mail or copy in searchable PDF file format, but the user can customize them to
scan to print, scan to archive, scan to network, and scan to OCR. The Visioneer OneTouch driver bundled with
the DocuMate 162 scanner also supports automatic delivery of scanned images to applications such as Microsoft
SharePoint®, Kofax Ascent® Collection Server, EMC Captiva® QuickScan Pro®, FileBound®, Laserfiche®,
DocuWare®, Xerox DocuShare™ and Datacap Taskmaster®.
The new scanner includes bundled software worth more than $400, including Visioneer OneTouch with Kofax
VRS technology, Nuance PaperPort®, OmniPage® Pro OCR and TWAIN, certified ISIS and WIA drivers.
Nuance PaperPort is a desktop document management solution that enables users to view and assemble mixed
document types into PDF files that can be managed and accessed locally or on the network. OmniPage Pro
converts high volumes of paper, PDF and forms into files that can searched and edited.
Pricing and Availability

channel partners, major resellers and Xerox and its agents and dealers.

New Xerox Color Multifunction System and Print Server Power Office Publishing
NORWALK, Conn., May 27, 2008 -- It's an office reality: A co-worker sends a file loaded with images to the
printer and the rest of the office stands in line waiting for this one print job. It's a frustrating drain on productivity.
To take this frustration out of the workplace and keep office printing humming, Xerox Corporation (NYSE: XRX)
launched the WorkCentre™ 7346 multifunction printer.
It's the company's latest color MFP that speeds through a range of documents, from everyday business reports like
Excel spreadsheets, to graphic-rich color presentations and brochures. The system features print speeds of up to 40
pages per minute (ppm) in color and 45 ppm in black and white, a fast 667MHz processor, 1.5 GB of memory, and
a 40 GB hard drive.
While documents with complex images traditionally slow down print jobs, the new Electronics For Imaging (EFI)
Fiery® print server for the WorkCentre 7300 series speeds up the process. As a result, the WorkCentre 7346 and
print server combination are suited for offices that need to print a variety of files, such as marketing and publishing
groups. In addition, the EFI Fiery print server provides easy-to-use color management controls for ensuring color
"Offices of any size thrive on speed," said Russell Peacock, president of Xerox Office Group. "And at the same
time, they demand quality, affordable technology. It's a tall order that the WorkCentre 7346 delivers. This system
is designed to cut down the print queue so that employees can send a file to the printer, grab and go. No wait time
means more work gets done."
The WorkCentre 7346 is also equipped with tools such as Auditron and Xerox Standard Accounting, which
regulate and track color usage, giving users the ability to manage costs by choosing when, where and how much
color they need.
The security features of the WorkCentre 7346 protect sensitive data at all points of vulnerability, from the device,
hard drive and network, to the document itself. An audit log tracks the date and user of every job the device
processes. Users can also be sure that documents remain confidential with Secure Print, a feature that allows users
to enter a pin at the device before printing begins.
The WorkCentre 7346 is enabled with Xerox's , a technology inside many Xerox MFPs. Based on Web standards,
EIP allows independent software vendors and developers to easily create applications for multifunction systems

Five Paper Tips from Xerox: Use Less, Use Wisely
NORWALK, Conn., March 31, 2008 -- Memos, reports, invoices, forms, presentations and instructions are the
trademark of a busy office - and signal the vital role paper plays in it every day. Yet Xerox Corporation studies
show that office workers throw away 45 percent of documents within 24 hours of printing them.
How can you stay productive while using resources wisely?
Paper is a renewable resource. If you think before you print and choose the paper that's right for the job, you can
reduce the environmental footprint of your office. As one of the world's largest suppliers of papers for office printers
and copiers, Xerox is sharing five simple tips for smart paper use.
Use both sides of the paper. It's called "duplex printing" and it is the single best way to reduce paper use. So
choose copiers, digital printers and multifunction devices that can print on both sides of the paper. Add duplex
as your "default" mode.
Go digital. Save on postage by sending electronic files and let your recipient decide whether to print them.
Replace paper files with electronic ones using the scan-to-file option on multifunction devices.
Be selective: Print what you need when you need it. For example, print only the portion of the report you need,
not every page. Preview your print to avoid printing pages with boilerplate. Print on demand. Don't stockpile forms,
letterhead, or instructions that will go out of date.
Reach for the right paper. A number of options promote sound environmental practices. For instance, Xerox High
Yield Business Paper™ is produced using half the number of trees of conventional paper. Print on papers certified
through global organizations, such as the Forest Stewardship Council or the Programme for the Endorsement of
Forest Certification, both of which have strict international standards for sustainable forestry. Or use paper with
Recycle. Collect used paper so the fiber can be used again. Recycling the fiber saves trees, reduces energy
and water use, requires fewer chemicals, and keeps paper out of landfills.
"It may be a surprise that Xerox is concerned about excessive paper use. After all, we're in the business of putting
marks on pages," said Wim Appelo, president, Xerox Strategic Services, which manages Xerox's paper business
as well as its company-wide environmental programs.
"But, the hallmark of our business has always been operating in an environmentally responsible way. That means
holding our suppliers to tough standards on how they make paper, improving forest management and protecting
endangered forests. As important, through Xerox innovation we help our customers minimize their impact on the
environment while meeting their business needs."
Xerox applies stringent requirements on all its paper suppliers and is working with The Nature Conservancy to
identify and promote best practices that will enable environmental scientists, forest managers and paper suppliers
to work cooperatively toward sustainable forest management. Long an evangelist for greener operations, Xerox
believes that environmental sustainability isn't a cost of doing business, but a way of doing business that benefits
shareholders, customers, employees and the world in which we work and live.

Xerox Creates Calculator That Measures Environmental Efficiency
First in the Industry to Answer "How Green is Your Office?"
Calculator "cracks the code;" tracks energy use, waste and greenhouse gas emissions of document technology;
provides data that backs up decisions to reduce environmental footprint in the office.
NORWALK, Conn., March 25, 2008 -- Xerox Corporation (NYSE: XRX) today unveiled the industry's first
Sustainability Calculator designed to help customers pinpoint opportunities to reduce their environmental impact
while reducing costs. The new proprietary software tool measures the overall impact a company's document
technologies have on the environment.
The Sustainability Calculator is the newest assessment tool available through Xerox Office Services. It evaluates
the current office environment of printers, copiers and multifunction devices and then measures environmental
benefits that could be achieved in terms of energy and paper use, solid waste, water, air and greenhouse gas
emissions. This tool provides customers the first fact-based measurement of their environmental footprint.
"This calculator cracks the code to help offices of any size really understand just how 'green' their offices are or
could be," said John Kelly, president, Xerox Global Services North America. "The same people who are
environmentally conscious at home are starting to bring this awareness to work, but in many cases, they didn't
know where to start. We designed the Sustainability Calculator to be an effective environmental assessment tool.
It provides customers with actionable recommendations to help them achieve their 'green' objectives and in doing
so realize cost-savings and efficiency gains that come with an optimized office environment."
The Sustainability Calculator not only tracks document technology from Xerox but also printers, copiers and
multifunction devices from other companies.
For offices wanting a quick assessment of their environmental footprint, a scaled-down version of the
comprehensive calculator will launch today on Xerox's Web site at www.xerox.com/thoughtleadership. Visitors get
a sneak peek at how the calculator can effectively help their company, regardless of its size. The quick Web-
based assessment provides how-to tips and advice on smart ways to make offices greener.
Northrop Grumman Weighs in with Big Savings
For global defense and technology company Northrop Grumman Corporation the calculator was able to show one
sector where it saved 27 percent in energy usage, 26 percent in greenhouse gas emissions and 33 percent in solid
waste. This sector of Northrop Grumman had more than 2,000 printers, hundreds of multifunction printers and stand-
alone copiers prior to leveraging Xerox Office Services - which optimized the office to less than 1,100 devices.
Xerox populated the calculator with metrics such as equipment specifications and usage patterns with the
original number of devices. Following that, the calculator evaluated the new office configuration and was able to
demonstrate areas where Northrop Grumman had achieved sustainability savings. Xerox will report metrics on
Northrop Grumman's office equipment throughout the year as the company continues to simplify the office settings
of six other sectors.
"Northrop Grumman is developing a variety of strategies to reduce our company's environmental impact," said
Kraig Scheyer, vice president of administrative services for Northrop Grumman Corporation. "Xerox's Sustainability
Calculator has been helping us in the area of office equipment to measure how far we've come, where we are today
and where we need to focus our efforts in the future."
How it Works
The Sustainability Calculator employs proprietary algorithms and document assessment research to deliver data
about a company's entire fleet of office products, from printers to multifunction devices and copiers, regardless of
the equipment supplier. The Sustainability Calculator can also provide information on the impact of printing on two
sides or using different types of papers. Preliminary testing of the calculator proves that customers realize both
environmental benefits and cost savings.
After the initial analysis that generates a detailed sustainability evaluation of their operations, Xerox partners with
customers to create an energy-saving office environment. Some of the changes can be as simple as moving devices
to different locations to replacing personal and single-function products with multifunction products. The calculator
can also detect opportunities for customers to become smarter paper users and to reduce waste. It provides information
on the impact of duplex printing or using different paper stocks.
"The goal for the Xerox Sustainability Calculator is to point customers in the right direction, to identify opportunities
where the reduced impact to the environment can be balanced with boosting the bottom line," said Patricia Calkins,
vice president of Environment, Health and Safety, Xerox. "We coupled our longstanding innovative leadership in the
area of sustainability with our deep knowledge of the office environment to create a tool to help our customers save
Smarter Ways to Green
Xerox's focus on sustainability dates back more than 20 years and is woven into nearly all aspects of how it
designs its products and selects its suppliers. Whether it is to develop an entire portfolio of sustainable paper or
be one of the first to incorporate ENERGY STAR® specification into its products, Xerox partners with customers,
suppliers and stakeholders to advance sustainable business practices. Some of the "green" programs and products
being produced by Xerox include:
Xerox's solid ink technology used in printers and multifunction devices use cartridge-free ink sticks that generate
90 percent less waste than laser or inkjet devices.
Intuitive "power down" capabilities in Xerox's solid ink printers learn the printing patterns of an office and
automatically shift into a low-power mode when it knows the printer will be in low use, like during the lunch hour.
Emulsion Aggregation toner is a major breakthrough in laser-based printing - requiring less toner to be placed on a
printed page while using 25 percent less energy to print than previous types of toner.
High Yield Business Paper™, created using 90 percent of a tree versus 45 percent of a tree typically used to create
standard white office paper.
Forest Stewardship Council and the Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certifications branded paper products
that were manufactured using raw materials harvested from certified sources and can be tracked from harvest
Research and development projects underway inside of Xerox labs include the development of erasable paper that
can be reused multiple times.
When combined, all of these efforts and alternatives will help customers reduce their use of resources, and ultimately
their environmental footprint.

Xerox Opens $24 Million Solid Ink Factory
Wilsonville, OR, Dec. 12, 2007 -- Xerox Corporation (NYSE: XRX) today opened a state-of-the art automated
ink manufacturing plant to serve growing demand for its proprietary solid ink color printers as more businesses
convert from black-and-white to color printing.
The $24 million factory fills 10,000 square feet of previously unused space on the company's campus here outside
of Portland, Ore., and expands Xerox's production of solid ink by 10 times. Over time, as the plant reaches full
capacity, Xerox expects to add 20 employees; about 75 employees work at the factory now.
The new plant will produce Xerox's latest generation of solid ink, which first became available in September
when Xerox launched its Phaser 8860 color printer and the Phaser 8860MFP color multifunction printer. These
products feature a breakthrough in solid ink technology that for the first time makes color printing as affordable
as black and white. Nearly five years in development, the new crayon-like ink sticks have been developed to
last longer than ever before. By increasing the total number of color pages the ink sticks produce, Xerox has
drastically reduced the price of color printing. When comparing the cost of the device and the ink, printing on
the Phaser 8860 is two times less expensive than using equivalent laser printers from other manufacturers.
The ink sticks also produce 90 percent less waste than comparable color laser products and were designed to
melt at a lower temperature, reducing energy consumption by 14 percent.
"Xerox has redefined color printing with the advancements we've made in solid ink," said Jim Rise, vice
president and general manager of the Solid Ink Business Unit. "Known for its exceptional image quality and
ability to print vibrant colors, solid ink was initially the preferred technology for graphic artists. Now, we've
taken it to a level where solid ink is the affordable, easy to use color printer for businesses of any sort and size.
That's why we're investing in this new factory; our success in solid ink is really just getting started."
The plant follows Xerox's opening in September of a $60 million emulsion aggregation (EA) toner plant near
Rochester, N.Y. EA toner produces sharper images than traditional laser printer toner, and uses less toner per

Xerox Teams Up with Top Direct Marketing Executives to Discuss
Effective Digital Campaigns at DMA Conference
Rochester, N.Y., Oct. 10, 2007 -- Xerox Corporation (NYSE: XRX) is making noise at this year's Direct
Marketing Association annual conference and exhibition. It won't be the standard sound of Xerox digital
presses in the booth. Instead, the chatter comes from 16 leaders in the direct marketing industry, who have a
thing or two to say about the impact digital printing has on direct marketing. The conversation will focus on
attention-grabbing direct-marketing jobs produced on Xerox digital systems.
"Using Xerox digital technology allows us to create highly profitable one-to-one communications that result in
greater customer loyalty, higher response rates and significant increases in return on investment compared to
traditional, static marketing programs," said Theresa Cloutier, senior vice president, marketing, DMM, a direct
marketing solutions provider in Scarborough, Maine, and one of the companies appearing in the Xerox booth.
DMM is producing direct marketing programs in industries such as pharmaceutical management, healthcare,
financial services, tourism and automotive. Its technology includes a Xerox iGen3 Digital Production Press and
Xerox DocuColor® 6060 Digital Color Press. Digital print sales make up 60 percent of DMM's revenue.
In addition to DMM, joining Xerox in its booth (No. 371) at DMA in Chicago from Oct. 14 - 17, are: Aspen
Marketing Services, Bowne Marketing & Business Communications, Cathedral Corporation, DME, DMI, Inc.,
EU Services, Freedom Graphic Systems, Hampton Printing and Mailing, Lexinet, Mailmark Direct Marketing
Services, NCP Solutions, RGC Communications, The Document Centre, The Mahoney Company and The
Total Mailing System.
"Digital print can bring proven power and effectiveness to direct marketing from simple to complex programs,"
said Tom Wetjen, vice president, Xerox Worldwide Graphic Communications Industry. "We have invited our
customers to share their success stories so direct marketers and creative executives can learn how to build
their brands and generate more business with relevant, personalized digital marketing communications."
Xerox and its customers will also participate in three DMA conference sessions. Shelley Sweeney from Xerox's
Worldwide Graphic Communications Business will be joined by Gordon Eyler of Bowne Marketing & Business
Communications for a session titled, "Inside a High-Performance Direct Marketing Engine for High Net-Worth
Customers." The session will include a case study of a Web-based marketing engine developed for a leading
financial services firm. The study provides details about the customized marketing materials including brochures,
personalized pitch books, seminar invitations and newsletters produced for more than 14,000 financial advisors
located around the globe. The online portal helps the organization maintain a consistent brand identity while
leveraging Web-to-print technology to help improve overall productivity.
John Mahoney, president, The Mahoney Company, will speak on "Building Blocks for a B2B DM Campaign."
He will outline tactics for building a successful, relevant direct-marketing program that can be modeled in any
In addition, Bob Wagner, head of Xerox's Creative Services Business and Premier Partners Program, will co-
present a session titled, "Becoming the Illusionist: The Magic of Using Brand to Drive Response Without Results
Disappearing" with Russell Kern, president, The Kern Organization, a fully-integrated direct marketing agency in
Woodland Hills, Calif. The session will highlight two marketing programs analyzed at Xerox's 1:1 Lab, a variable
testing ground for Xerox customers. The 1:1 Lab reviews a customer's traditional, static direct-marketing
campaigns and compares the results against those that utilize data-driven one-to-one messaging.
Many of the 16 Xerox customers are part of Xerox's Graphic Arts Premier Partners program, a global community
of more than 650 of its leading digital communications services providers. The work of these print providers
reinforces Xerox's emphasis on using the full capabilities of Xerox digital production printing systems, workflow

Xerox Cascades Color Throughout the Office
Stamford, CT, Sept. 24, 2007 - Xerox Corporation (NYSE: XRX) is creating a wave of color for the office with
five new multifunction products and printers, including two that feature a breakthrough in solid ink technology
that for the first time makes color printing as affordable as black and white.
The product rollout includes the Xerox Phaser® 8860 color printer and Xerox Phaser 8860MFP color multifunction
printer - the first printers to feature the next generation of Xerox’s solid ink technology . Nearly five years in
development, the new crayon-like ink sticks have been developed to last longer than ever before. By increasing
the total number of color pages the ink sticks produce, Xerox has drastically reduced the price of color printing.
When comparing the cost of the device and the ink, printing on the Phaser 8860 is two times less expensive
than using equivalent laser printers from other manufacturers.
Designed for virtually any business with print volumes between 1,000 and 10,000 pages per month, the Phaser
8860 color printer and Phaser 8860MFP are ideal for customers - such as real estate agencies, marketing firms,
design agencies and contractors - who depend on color for business proposals, collaterals and reports, as well
as everyday documents such as e-mail, spreadsheets and more.
"Our customers told us that they want and need high-quality color printing to support their business, but that
price was a barrier," said Ursula Burns, president of Xerox. "By focusing our research on advancements in solid
ink, we can now make printing a page in color as inexpensive as black and white, and at total costs that are
much lower than comparable printers from other companies. Now, businesses can take the locks off the color
printer and depend on the affordable advantages of Xerox printers for all their printing needs - in any color. And,
they can do it knowing the environmental advantages of solid ink significantly reduce waste."
With Xerox’s cartridge-free solid ink technology, the ink sticks, which are simply dropped into the color-
coordinated ink trays, require minimal packaging and generate 90 percent less waste than comparable laser
"The new Xerox cartridge-free solid inks are each only one-third the cost of the black supplies. What this means
(and our tests confirmed) is that now - for perhaps the first time in the history of workgroup office color printing -
you can print almost any document in full color on this desktop printer for the same cost as printing it in black
and white," said David R. Spencer, President of the SpencerLab Digital Color Laboratory, which has
independently tested the Phaser 8860.
Base pricing for the Phaser 8860 color printer and Phaser 8860MFP is $2,499 and $3,999, respectively. The
black ink, with a yield of 14,000 pages, is $216. Each color ink stick, also yielding 14,000 pages, is only $72.
Comparatively, the Hewlett-Packard Color LaserJet 4700dn printer is priced at $1,599, with a supplies cost of
$178.99 for a black toner cartridge that yields 11,000 pages, and $253.99 for each color toner cartridge that
yields 10,000 pages.
With print speeds as fast as 30 pages per minute in color and black and white, a 750 MHz processor and true
Adobe PostScript3, the Phaser 8860 and Phaser 8860MFP produce color prints that are Pantone color
approved, meaning the image quality matches the tough standards of Pantone’s color system. Automatic two-
sided printing and N-up printing, which enables users to print multiple pages onto one, allow more images to fit
on a single sheet of paper. In addition to these features, industry-leading optical character recognition (OCR)
software in the MFP version of the Phaser 8860 allow documents to be scanned and converted to digital format,
saving users both time and money.
More Xerox Technology Offers More Choices, More Color
Building on the industry’s broadest product portfolio that offers customers wide choices for their document needs,
Xerox also launched today the Phaser 6180MFP color multifunction printer that prints at speeds as fast as 20
pages per minute in color and 31 ppm in black and white; and the Xerox WorkCentre® 7232 and WorkCentre
7242 color multifunction printers, which offer print speeds as fast as 10 ppm in color, and 32 and 40 ppm in
black and white, respectively.
The Xerox Phaser 6180MFP starts at $999, and features a 400MHz processor, 384MB of memory and a 950-
sheet paper input capacity. With Xerox’s environmentally friendly Emulsion Aggregation High Gloss Toner, true
Adobe PostScript3 and Pantone color, the Phaser 6180MFP produces high-quality prints in 600x600x4 dpi color
output. The unit is easy to set-up and use with PrintingScout, software that automatically sends users messages
at their computers about the status of print jobs. It also includes CentreWare® Web printer management software,
which allows IT administrators or office workers to remotely clone, configure and manage a fleet of systems. The
multifunction printer also includes ID Card Copy, making it simple to copy both sides of a document, like an
insurance card, onto a single sheet of paper.
Xerox’s new WorkCentre 7232/7242 are entry-level, color-capable multifunction products designed for small to
mid-sized workgroups that rely on black-and-white printing but need color for some business applications. The
systems offer two-sided copying and printing and a full range of color controls, such as Xerox Standard Accounting,
which lets offices track use and set limits for their employees.
The WorkCentre 7200 series is enabled with Xerox’s Extensible Interface Platform (EIP), a Web-based platform
that lets customers and developers quickly and easily create customized workflow applications. The line builds
on the success of the WorkCentre 7132 for "color cautious" customers who print primarily in black and white
but need the option of printing quality color.
Pricing for the WorkCentre 7232 and 7242 starts at $5,299 and $6,299, respectively.
Order taking for the WorkCentre 7242 begins in November, and order taking for the 7232 begins in January, in
North America, through Xerox direct sales, agents, authorized resellers and dealers. Order taking in Europe
begins in October. In other regions, including Latin America, Russia, Central and Eastern Europe, order taking
The Phaser 6180MFP is available immediately worldwide through Xerox direct sales, agents, resellers, dealers,
concessionaires, by calling 866-480-3119, or online at www.xerox.com/direct .

Xerox Launches Industry's Fastest Light Production Printers; Boost
Customers' Productivity and Profits
Rochester, N.Y., Sept. 06, 2007 -- Xerox Corporation (NYSE: XRX) is expanding its black-and-white digital
printing portfolio, today adding four offerings, including the fastest light production printers in the industry. The
systems make it easier and more economical for print providers of all types and sizes - from small quick print
shops, educational institutions and law offices, to large commercial printers and in-plant operations - to produce
brochures, course packs, and customized marketing materials and statements.
The Xerox 4112/4127 Copier/Printer and Xerox 4112/4127 Enterprise Printing System are entry-level products
designed for enterprises and print providers that require speed, functionality, ease of use, image quality and
workflow flexibility often reserved for more expensive high-end black-and-white equipment.
"Demand for digital black-and-white printing is still accelerating in areas like short-run brochures, manuals and
personalized statements," said Quincy Allen, president, Xerox Production Systems Group. "Always strengthening
our leadership in the market, Xerox continues to deliver new products and tools that help print providers respond
quickly to their customers' needs for fast, quality black-and-white print jobs."
Enhanced features in an entry-level printing system
Based on the award-winning Xerox 4110 platform platform, the Xerox 4112/4127 systems offer superior image
quality at 2400 x 2400 dpi for printing text, graphics and pictures with extremely fine detail and tighter image
registration, resulting in high-quality duplex printing. Printing at 110 or 125 pages per minute and scanning at
100 images per minute simplex or duplex, the systems give print providers unmatched print, scan and copy
productivity in a light production device. The 125 ppm models are the fastest light production printers in the industry.
The products help in-plant operations and print-for-pay users expand their job offerings to include workbooks
and manuals, transactional statements and personalized marketing pieces. Designed for distributed print locations
with limited space, the systems have a compact footprint, yet still feature extended functionality with in-line finishing
The products handle a wide range of media, including coated stocks. They also offer increased paper capacity
for longer unattended run time and efficient production of mixed-media jobs. The 4112/4127 systems feature a
new 20-sheet saddle-stitch booklet maker and folding unit for producing newsletters, brochures, course packs
and workbooks. The copier/printer configuration is equipped with an integrated scanner, and users can select
from three workflow options - an integrated copy/print server, optional Xerox FreeFlow® Print Server or an EX
Print Server, powered by Fiery®. The Enterprise Printing System is a printer-only version powered by the FreeFlow
Print Server, providing a distributed print solution that enables transaction and publishing workflows.
"Numerous improvements in the new Xerox 4112/4127 systems build upon the significant success that the 4110
family and its three workflow options have already had in a range of light-production environments," said Jim
Hamilton, group director, InfoTrends. "Print service providers will value the increased speed of the new models,
as well as benefits such as the improved ability to handle coated stocks, tighter front-to-back registration and

Xerox Innovates For More Office Efficiency
Rochester, NY, 06 Aug. 2007 - Like a global positioning system, Xerox Corporation's (NYSE: XRX) new device
management software provides customers with a roadmap of their entire print network, allowing them to know
in real-time how to keep their offices performing at peak efficiency.
Committed to maximizing office productivity, Xerox Global Services developed Xerox Office Services 4.2, an
enhanced suite of software tools that manage multiple printers and multifunction systems within the office
network. The tools help lower the total cost of ownership for customers' document technology and provides
highly measurable results.
"Xerox brings innovation to the 'software-as-a-service' market among print vendors," said Angčle Boyd, analyst,
IDC, a leading independent consultant firm. "This software combines Xerox's document management expertise
and its office consulting services to give customers significant advantage in the race to cut costs and improve
A key feature of XOS 4.2 is Print Infrastructure Mining data analysis technology developed by the Xerox
Research Centre in Europe. PIM provides a graphical and dynamic map of a customer's entire print network.
It enables Xerox Global Services technical advisors to provide remote advanced diagnostics and troubleshooting,
putting printers and multifunction devices back into operation quickly.
PIM tracks details of print jobs such as the number of pages being printed, what devices are printing the most
pages, and the complexity of the printing (color/black and white; stapled/collated; single/duplex) -- trend data
that helps companies and workgroups better manage their print infrastructure. As opposed to manually gathering
historic data, this type of analysis helps reduce the total cost of ownership because adjustments can be made
that are based on current information and the relationship between the document devices and users.
For example, PIM can identify when significant increases in print volume occur and the data used to determine
which user or groups are generating the majority of the volume. If the volume continues to increase over time,
the company could add a more efficient printer or multifunction device to meet the printing needs and move the
existing device to an area that generates a lower print volume.
Additional software upgrade features include:
Enhanced portal services - streamlines ordering supplies, placing service calls and requesting reports.
Greater global support - allows regional operation centers to link into a company's global monitoring infrastructure.
Device configuration management - locks down all devices by defaulting to the most secure settings.
Improved management and reporting - delivers statistics on all devices in a customer's office environment.
XOS 4.2 is currently available in the U.S. and Europe with expanded global deployment planned by the end of

Office Group. "These systems adapt to the way you work-instead of the other way around."
The WorkCentre 7675 prints and copies at speeds up to 50 pages per minute in color and 75 ppm in black and
white. Boasting a print resolution up to 2400 x 2400 dpi, the system can produce high-end color prints as well as
everyday business documents quickly and cost effectively. It can also scan and fax, and it includes tools to
manage color costs, improve document workflow and keep documents secure. The product is equipped with
Xerox Standard Accounting, free software that enables businesses to track usage, set limits for users and
The WorkCentre 7675 is available with an optional light-production finisher that offers increased stapling capacity,
an interposer for post-process sheet insertion, a hole punch and optional C-, Z- and engineering fold. The finisher
will also be available for Xerox's existing WorkCentre 7655 and 7665 color multifunction systems, which have

can also store frequently printed documents, such as forms or templates, on the device and modify the settings
before printing, which eliminates trips back and forth from computer to MFP.
The WorkCentre 5600 Series also offers expanded finishing options for models that operate at 55 ppm and
above, including C- and Z-folding and post-process sheet insertion. Scan-enabled models have the ability to
create searchable PDF and XPS files.

available on all new WorkCentre multifunction systems. An Encrypted Disk and Image Overwrite feature deletes
images from the hard drive automatically upon job completion or on demand.
Other software from Xerox and its partners provides the ability to access common business forms directly from
the MFP, print on demand from document repositories, and much more. For example, people can preview newly
scanned documents on the MFP's display for accuracy and then store them in Xerox DocuShare™, Microsoft
Corp. SharePoint or Windows folders, without the need for a pre-defined template. The MFP's touch screen
can then be used to browse and print those documents.

Xerox Printer Delivers Smart Features, Faster Speed, More Memory at
Wilsonvile, Ore., April 03, 2007 -- Xerox Corporation (NYSE: XRX) today announced a black-and-white
network laser printer packed with advanced features to help workgroups in companies of all sizes work more
efficiently at a price that won't break the bank.
Starting at $899, the Xerox Phaser 4510 offers features and capabilities normally found in higher priced printers.
For instance, Smart Duplex automatically detects pages that only need to be printed on one side, speeding up
print time. Another capability, called Personal Print, allows people to download jobs to their own mailbox on the
printer's hard drive and then print them all at once so they don't get mixed up with co-workers' documents. With
twice the standard memory of the comparably priced Hewlett-Packard LaserJet 4250, a faster 533 MHz
processor, and a standard 700-sheet paper capacity, the printer tackles complex print jobs quickly.
"Busy workgroups expect office equipment to keep up with their workload without interruption," said Hervé
Chauveau, vice president of marketing, Xerox Office Group. "The Phaser 4510 is an ideal primary office printer
because it's almost invisible. People don't have to think about the printer and the technology - it just prints the
information they need to get their work done."
The Phaser 4510 is built on the award-winning Phaser 4500 printer platform. Government Computer News
gave the Phaser 4500 its Reviewer's Choice Award and praised it as a "plug and print" thoroughbred because
of its easy set-up. The Phaser 4510's automatic installation has users up and running in as few as four mouse clicks.
At speeds up to 45 pages per minute and with a first-page-out time as fast as 8 seconds, the Phaser 4510 is
capable of handling the printing needs of a busy office. The printer comes with "smart paper trays" that
automatically sense paper size to match the print and a simple paper path to reduce the number of paper jams
and job interruptions. When events such as low paper or toner occur, PrintingScout warns users with a pop-up
message on their PC. For other problems, users can turn to PhaserSMART, a Web-based technical support tool,
for more information.
Businesses can choose from four Phaser 4510 configurations, from a basic non-network version to a full-featured
version that comes with a 500-sheet output stacker and a 40 GB hard drive. The Phaser 4510 offers true 1,200
dpi resolution for sharp text and fine detail and Adobe PostScript 3.

Xerox, Adobe Urge Print Design Executives to Differentiate, Offer
SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 23, 2006 - Today’s successful print providers can no longer just print. That is the
message Quincy Allen, president, Production Systems Group, Xerox Corporation (NYSE: XRX), delivered
here at Adobe System’s Momentum in Print conference.
In a keynote address, Allen urged graphic communications professionals to develop and deliver the right value-
added services to help clients gain loyalty and increase response rates, while generating more profits for their
"Printers need to differentiate from their competitors," said Allen. "They must push the boundaries of digital and
seize new opportunities in services such as Web site design, Web hosting, e-mail campaigns, signage, and
cross-media campaign management."
Allen highlighted four new opportunities in digital printing:
· Promotional transactional print taking applications to the next level by including targeted, full-color advertising
messages in credit-card statements.
· Web-ordered print-on-demand communications allowing consumers to customize and order items such as calendars
and greeting cards directly though the Web, in quantities as few as one.
· One-to-one marketing and cross-media publishing areas that are expanding to include personalized marketing
campaigns and Web sites to increase the response rates of jobs and grow a company’s profits.
· Book production digital technology allows print providers to use efficient workflows that drive both digital and
offset book operations.
To help support these opportunities, Xerox announced a tool that gives designers a how-to approach for designing
files for digital printing. The Xerox Job Preparation Guide for Designers is aimed at maximizing the full potential
of digital printing equipment, providing tips and techniques to ensure files are printed right the first time.
Part of Xerox’s ProfitAccelerator collection of business development resources, the guide covers topics such
as selecting the right paper, achieving better color consistency, and how to properly prepare files. It was
designed using Adobe’s Creative Suite 2 software. The Job Preparation Guide for Designers will be available
worldwide in mid-February to all Xerox customers at no cost through their sales representative.
Xerox also announced it will sponsor the Adobe Design Achievement Awards. It is a campaign targeting
2,800 design schools in 24 countries including the U.S., Australia, China, Italy, Japan, Germany, South Africa
and the United Kingdom. As the official print communications sponsor, Xerox is working with one of its
customers, Toppan America, to print all the materials on a Xerox iGen3® 110 Digital Production Press using
Xerox paper and supplies. This will include 11,000 posters and 207,000 postcards in seven languages, and the
official program guide for the awards banquet to be held July 20 at the Royal Ontario Museum in Toronto.
The Adobe Momentum in Print conference is a three-day event for print and design professionals to explore
issues affecting a printer’s business and the graphic communications industry.
It is the first of several initiatives Xerox and Adobe will work on together this year, building on a 16-year
relationship. Xerox also will be the digital print technology sponsor for the Adobe Art Directors Invitational
Master Class, March 29-April 1, and it will collaborate with Adobe on a commemorative poster to be printed
on a Xerox iGen3 110 press for graphic design professionals at the HOW Conference, June 12-15.

Xerox Rolls Out Fast, Affordable Color Printer
WILSONVILLE, Ore., Oct. 10, 2005 - Xerox Corporation (NYSE: XRX) today unveiled four additions to its
growing office line, including a network printer that runs 33 percent faster and costs $550 less than the closest
comparable competitive model from Hewlett-Packard.
At a starting price of $2,999, the Xerox Phaser(r) 7400 is the fastest desktop color printer in its class. It equips
small- and medium-sized businesses to turn out high-quality spreadsheets, brochures, presentations and other
business-critical documents at 36 color or 40 black-and-white pages per minute.
In addition, Xerox has launched a family of three black-and-white office multifunction, printing and copying
products featuring exceptional print quality. The most advanced is the Xerox WorkCentre(r) Pro 133, a 33-ppm
multifunction system that combines printing, copying, scanning, faxing and e-mailing in one easy-to-use system.
The offerings are the latest in a series of 40 Xerox office printers and multifunction products announced this year.
Virtually all of Xerox's office product line has been refreshed within the past two years.
"Productivity and value spell success for small- and medium-sized businesses, and that's what these hard-working
Xerox products deliver," said Tim Williams, president, Xerox Office Group. "They perform better than the
competition while being easy to use, reliable and versatile. These attributes help customers stay focused
on their business and work smarter."
Xerox Phaser 7400
Like other Xerox Phaser products, the Phaser 7400 delivers industry-leading printing speeds, vivid color and
reliable operation. The Phaser 7400 supports not only letter-size paper but also media sizes up to 12" x 18"
and heavier media weights up to 270 gsm so people can print spreadsheets, brochures, presentations and
collaterals on a variety of paper sizes and types. Finishing features that were not previously available in the
Phaser printer line -- including booklet making, saddle stitching, stapling and hole punching for up to 1,000
sheets -- are optional.
The Phaser 7400's combination of low price and high performance helps customers increase productivity,
control costs, and print the materials they need to conduct business in-house and on-demand.
Customer replaceable consumables are now top-loading so people can replace toner cartridges, imaging units,
and other consumables without pulling the printer away form the wall or turning the printer to access the
consumables. Network connectivity is a standard feature on all configurations of the Phaser 7400.
Xerox CopyCentre/WorkCentre/WorkCentre Pro 133
The 33-ppm black-and-white family includes a multifunction system, digital copier and digital copier/printer.
For customers that want to consolidate stand-alone equipment, the WorkCentre Pro 133 monochrome MFP
offers best-in-class media support from 16 lb. to 110 lb. and print quality up to 1200 x 1200 dpi. These
multifunction systems can handle multiple jobs at the same time, allowing an office worker to scan a document
while a print job is running. With a 20GB hard drive, Adobe Postscript 3 and the ability to handle paper as
heavy as 110 lb. index, these systems have the power to print complex office documents quickly.
The CopyCentre(r) 133 stand-alone digital copier starts at an estimated retail price of $5,148; the WorkCentre(r)
133 copier/printer offers copying and printing with optional fax and starts at $6,148; and the WorkCentre Pro
133 advanced multifunction system starts at $8,899. These products further expand Xerox's line of multifunction
systems available through resellers and dealers.
All three systems use Xerox's patented emulsion aggregation (EA) toner, which standardizes the size and shape
of toner particles so prints and copies have sharper image quality and fine line text. EA toner uses an
environmentally friendly manufacturing process that consumes an estimated 25 percent less energy than
traditional toner, and it avoids the use of organic solvents commonly required to make particles in the
nanometer-or-less size range.

Xerox Fuels Growth with 24 New Digital Products
NEW YORK, June 28, 2005 - In its biggest office product launch in two years, Xerox Corporation
(NYSE: XRX) today hurdled the competition with 24 new digital products, software and services that target a
$60 billion market opportunity and serve businesses small to large.
The offerings solidify Xerox's office line as the broadest and most comprehensive in the industry, serving every
segment of the business market.
"As of today, with the breadth of its offerings across so many segments, Xerox has never been better
positioned to serve customers and capture growth in the office IT market," said IDC's Angčle Boyd, group
vice president, Imaging/Output & SMB Practices.
With the addition of these products, 95 percent of Xerox's office product line has been completely refreshed
over the past 24 months.
Xerox unveiled its latest suite of office multifunction systems, printers, digital copiers and software, along with
IT services designed to track, analyze and optimize how customers manage fleets of office devices, during a
live "IT XChange" webcast from the C3 Expo technology trade show in New York City.
Xerox also announced a capability that allows office customers to manage Xerox network devices alongside
Hewlett-Packard products through peripheral management software. The new plug-ins for HP Web Jetadmin
software - based on open standards and developed in conjunction with HP - enable customers to manage
Xerox printers with a mixed set of office equipment brands and accessories.
"With a broad range of plug-ins for networked peripheral management software tools, including IBM's Tivoli
software, Computer Associates' Unicenter and now HP's Web Jetadmin software, Xerox provides IT
administrators with a breadth of information about the status of these powerful document devices," said Brian
Bissett, editor and publisher of The MFP Report. "This enables IT personnel to ensure each device maintains
optimal performance and is critical to lowering often overlooked IT infrastructure costs."
Building its leadership in the burgeoning color market, Xerox is bridging the office and high-end production
printing segments with the DocuColor® 240/250 color laser multifunction systems.
"At speeds up to 50 pages per minute in color, these offerings allow Xerox to serve customers in graphics-
intensive offices and print shops. We are now better positioned to increase share in the light production color
market, just as we have in the digital light production black-and-white market, where we have significantly
increased our market share in one year," said Tim Williams, president, Xerox Office Group. "This strategy will
drive growth for Xerox and superior value for our customers."
The DocuColor 240/250 with an integrated EFI controller provide professional quality printed materials from
systems that are 15 percent smaller than the closest comparable products in their class.
The systems use a new proprietary 32-beam laser, rather than a traditional 2-beam laser, to write text and
images at a higher rate and resolution, resulting in razor-sharp output with fine line and shadow detail. The
DocuColor 240/250 are the only devices in their class to offer true 2400x2400 dpi, 16 times the resolution
of the Xerox DocuColor 12, one of the industry's most successful office color laser multifunction systems with
more than 60,000 units sold to date.
For small to large-sized businesses and workgroups, four new Phaser® network color printers - the Phaser
8500 and 8550 solid ink printers and the Phaser 6300 and 6350 color laser printers - deliver cost-effective,
yet vibrant color prints. The 24-ppm networked Phaser 8500 starts at $899. For higher-volume printing, the
Phaser 6350 offers the industry's fastest color print speed in its class at 36 pages per minute.
Office Multifunction Leadership
Leading the industry in document security, performance and productivity, 18 new CopyCentre® digital copiers
and WorkCentre® and WorkCentre® Pro multifunction devices are even easier for IT administrators to
manage. With a new 1 GHz processor, the systems copy and print at speeds from 32-75 pages per minute,
reducing processing time and improving the management of large files and complex jobs. The WorkCentre
and WorkCentre Pro models also scan and fax. Powerful security features allow customers to restrict access,
track usage and protect confidential information, such as legal, healthcare or financial data.
Enhanced Office Services
In addition to expanding its product array, Xerox enhanced its value-added services that help simplify how
people manage documents in their offices. The Xerox Office Services portfolio includes upgraded software
and device management services that keep offices running at peak productivity by identifying how often
equipment is used and flagging printer or network problems before they occur.
KeyBank is one of many customers getting the most out of Xerox Office Services. One of the nation's largest
financial services companies, KeyBank expects to save up to $6 million, relying on Xerox for many functions
including detailed analysis and recommendations for improved efficiency based on usage patterns, employee
needs and device performance.
Document Management Partnerships and Software
Xerox also announced 10 partner solutions designed to control costs and streamline document-intensive
processes. These offerings extend the capabilities of Xerox advanced MFPs to help solve problems related
to cost accounting, document scanning and routing, making emergency notifications and managing forms.
The list of companies includes EFI, Equitrac, IPro Tech Inc., Notable Solutions Inc., Principia Products,
ScanSoft Inc., Streem Communications and Verity Inc.
Xerox is now bundling its DocuShare® content management software with its FreeFlowTM SMARTsendTM
workflow software. This offering allows customers to integrate hardcopy documents into digital work processes
to reduce costs and comply with industry regulations.
In a multi-year contract, the City of Newark, N.J., is using a combination of DocuShare software, Xerox
multifunction systems and services to link 1,500 city employees and reduce inefficiencies associated with
managing paper documents such as budget reports, human resources materials and forms.

Focus on Innovation At Xerox Produces More Than 500 Patents
STAMFORD, Conn., Jan. 13, 2005 - Xerox Corporation's (NYSE: XRX) research and development investment
continued to pay off in 2004, adding 520 U.S. utility patents in areas as diverse as mobile document imaging,
color print reproduction, management of print shops, and advanced materials that can improve the
performance of printers and copiers. This unflagging commitment to innovation fueled by the brainpower
of Xerox scientists and engineers has netted more than 16,000 patents since Xerox was founded and is the
launch pad for future growth.
"These patents typify the creative brilliance that's enriching existing products, developing next-generation
product platforms, and exploring potentially disruptive technologies for new growth opportunities. The
innovations they represent are at the heart of Xerox's future success; they are the way Xerox creates
shareholder value," said Hervé Gallaire, chief technology officer and president, Xerox Innovation Group.
Gallaire noted that Xerox introduced 40 new products in 2004. Through the third quarter of last year, about
two-thirds of the company's equipment sales were generated from products launched in the last two years.
"Our intellectual property process identifies ideas that will spawn the coming waves of document services
and technologies - ones that our customers can ride to new levels of productivity," he added.
Xerox provides unmatched expertise in document systems, services and solutions. Its research helps customers
in workplaces and commercial-printing environments increase the intelligence, quality and productivity of their
documents and work processes and build new businesses.
Much Xerox research is tightly coordinated with business units; the remainder is aimed at developing future
opportunities both in its core business and in related areas of expertise. Xerox was awarded a number of
strategic patents in 2004 that strengthen its intellectual property portfolio. Included were patents in the areas
of capturing and converting documents from hardcopy to digital form using a mobile phone or phone camera;
streamlining production printing shop operations to become more productive; and achieving even more accurate
color reproduction from one printer to the next. Other key patents include ones that help make printer parts
like photoreceptors last longer; belt coatings that improve product performance; and a flexible and efficient way
to compress and decompress digital documents that allows print professionals to produce high-resolution color
prints with fully personalized content and images at speeds of 100 pages per minute.
In addition to the patents granted to Xerox last year, its joint-venture partner in Japan, Fuji Xerox Co. Ltd., was
awarded 202 patents, raising the overall patent total for the Xerox Group to 717. (Because the two
companies' research is strategically coordinated, the group total includes five jointly held patents where Xerox
Corporation and Fuji Xerox worked together on research.) The combined total ranks the Xerox Group among
the top 25 U.S. patent winners in 2004. With more than 16,000 U.S. patents granted since the company's
founding, Xerox is one of the country's most prolific generators of inventions.
Xerox Corporation operates research and technology centers in the United States, Canada and Europe that
conduct work in color science, computing, digital imaging, work practices, electromechanical systems, novel
materials and other disciplines connected to Xerox's expertise in printing and document management. The
company consistently builds its inventions into business by embedding them in Xerox products and solutions,
using them as the foundation of new businesses, or licensing or selling them to other entities.

XEROX WINS 2003 IEEE Corporate INNOVATION AWARD FOR
AND THE PRINT-ON-DEMAND INDUSTRY
STAMFORD, Conn., June 23, 2003 - Xerox Corporation (NYSE: XRX) has received the 2003 IEEE Corporate
Innovation Recognition award for its pioneering work that created the DocuTech product line and resulted in
the $30 billion print-on-demand industry.
The IEEE recognized Xerox "for its DocuTech product line, which unified digital electronics, computing and
communications with xerography to create the print-on-demand industry," said Michael Adler, IEEE president.
The IEEE, which is the world's largest technical professional society, presented the award to Xerox at its annual
awards ceremony in Nashville, Tenn., on June 21.
As revolutionary for the printing and publishing industry as the original Xerox copier was for the office, the
DocuTech product line was simultaneously an innovative product, system and service. The DocuTech Production
Publisher, introduced in 1990, combined the steps of the printing process (prepress, printing, finishing) into new
electronic workflows and made possible digital publishing of documents.
Its genius was in merging both hard copy and digital inputs into fully laid out pages, generating full documents
described by computer programs. These programs, called job tickets, were created by workers via a graphical
user interface and were "run" by the DocuTech device to create finished hard copy documents.
"Within a decade of its introduction, most of the black-and-white printing work in the United States had shifted
to DocuTech, profoundly changing the nature of the printing industry and moving it into the digital age," said
Frank J. Romano, chair of Rochester Institute of Technology's School of Print Media.
A principal advantage of the DocuTech was its ability to produce short-run lengths of print jobs "on demand,"
simplifying production and distribution and giving the new business its name. Indeed, DocuTech's ability to
"distribute, then print" instead of offset printing's traditional "print, then distribute" model fundamentally changed
the work processes of printing documents.
The full spectrum of Xerox's black-and-white products based on the seminal DocuTech architecture now includes
more than 20 digital printers and presses, ranging from 75 to 180 pages per minute. They are supported by an
array of integrated workflow components including the Xerox DocuSP common controller, Digipath Production
Software and other innovative software, products and services. The black-and-white products are now
complemented by Xerox's DocuColor series of digital production presses, which deliver the benefits of DocuTech
architecture in full-color digital presses.
In 2002 the print-on-demand industry created nearly 400 billion print-on-demand impressions in the United States,
with a retail print value of about $30 billion, according to CAP Ventures, Inc., a business communication
technologies and services consulting firm. For Xerox alone, revenues from the DocuTech product line have
exceeded $17 billion since its introduction.
In addition, the groundbreaking architecture of the DocuTech has been the basis for two succeeding waves of
· The digital transition, which swept the office copier industry in the late 1990's, transforming analog office
copiers into digital multifunction devices that could provide scanning, printing, saving, editing and communications
such as faxing.
· The emerging transformation of the print-on-demand industry to the personalized-print-on-demand industry by
adding database merging and Internet delivery functionality to the original architecture.
"In honoring the DocuTech product line, the IEEE is recognizing a breakthrough technology that is based on an
astonishing array of innovations. Xerox continues to build on that legacy, most recently with its next-generation
DocuColor iGen3 Digital Production Press, a 100 page-per-minute color product launched last year," said Hervé
Gallaire, Xerox chief technology officer and president of the Xerox Innovation Group. Gallaire accepted the
award on behalf of the Xerox employees whose foresight and creativity brought the DocuTech to market.
