    The BP-70C31 A3 colour MFP is a secure print solution for the future workplace. It delivers effortless connectivity, security and sustainability whilst offering superior functionality to facilitate hybrid working.
    Effortless Connectivity
    The built-in Microsoft® Teams connector strengthens teamwork and collaboration by providing direct and secure access for printing to or scanning from Microsoft® Teams channels, all from the MFP. The Synappx Go mobile app also enables contactless and remote printing, aligning print capabilities with the new demands of hybrid working. With single sign-on, users can seamlessly connect their mobile devices via WiFi, AirPrint, Bluetooth, NFC or QR code to enterprise workflows and print capabilities – from wherever they are working.
    Effortless Security
    The BP-70C31 comes with a range of industry leading system and data protection features which not only protect the device but also the data it processes. Features such as BIOS based security, whitelisting, self-recovery firmware and standard Trusted Platform Module means that users can be confident that their sensitive data and documents are always kept safe and secure. In addition optional anti-malware software from Bitdefender can add an additional layer of reassurance that your device, data and network is protected
    Effortless Operation
    A motion sensor detects approaching users wakening the MFP from Sleep mode and the communication lamps provide an at-a-glance status view. Intuitive icons on the new 10.1” tiltable colour LCD operation panel make it easy to access and all of the productivity enhancing functions using smartphone style touch capability.
    Effortless Productivity
    The BP-70C31 can print and copy at speeds of up to 31 ppm in colour and black & white and you can replace toner and paper without pausing the print or copy job, so your productivity won’t miss a beat.

    The built-in Duplex Single Pass Feeder can scan two-sided documents at speeds of up to 280 ipm in batches of up to 300 sheets, making it quick to finish even large jobs. There’s even an option for eliminating double feeding of paper when scanning and an alert LED to remind users to remove their originals when they’re done, helping to keep documents secure. The BP-70C31 also uses AI (Artificial Intelligence) to determine the optimal resolution, gradation and compression rates for all scan jobs.

    The standard Print Release function allows users to securely release their print jobs from the most conveniently located MFP from up to 100 connected network-ready devices, and a variety of extensive finishing options including a folding unit, saddle stitching, manual and stapleless stapling add further versatility and bring more flexibility to your output.

    The Sharp Application Portal facilitates remote firmware and application updates which ensures that the MFP is always kept up-to-date and compliant.
    Effortless Sustainability
    Superior environmental performance delivers lower power consumption and a low TEC value and ensures that the BP-70C31 complies with energy consumption regulations. A comprehensive range of eco-focused functions including eco-scan together with a rapid warm up time all help to save money and support environmental objectives.

    The principles of the circular economy have been applied to the production of the BP-70C31 to minimise its carbon footprint and to maximise the recyclability of all components by eliminating harmful materials in operational processes and extending the life of key component parts to reduce the number of service visits.
