    "Businesses are always looking for new ways to increase the overall productivity and efficiency of their workplace, while keeping an eye on their bottom line," said Mike Garofola, Senior Marketing Manager, Color Printers and MFPs at OKI Data Americas, Inc. "Boasting greater media flexibility, the new C9650 Series enables companies to take control of both traditional office and outsourced printing requirements, ultimately reducing their operating costs, saving time and allowing our customers to explore their internal creativity."

The C9650 Series touts the most media flexibility in its class, accommodating up to 307 grams per square meter (gsm) of paper, which is equivalent to a 54lb bond or a 75lb cover - ideal paper weight for a company's direct mail marketing piece for example. Combined with fast printing at up to 36 pages per minute (ppm) in color and 40 ppm in black-and-white with 10.5 seconds time to first color page(1), businesses can produce exceptional corporate materials in-house with affordability, quickness and ease.
