BRIDGEWATER, N.J., May 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Brother International
Corporation, a leader in small business technology, today announced the launch
of the MFC-9000 series, its newest series of digital color all-in-ones. This
new series is anchored by the flagship model MFC-9340CDW, which offers small
business users advanced, big business features, such as fast color and black
printing speeds (up to 23ppm color and black), automatic duplex printing,
plus, single-pass duplex scanning/copying. All models in the MFC-9000 series
feature a 3.7" Color TouchScreen Display with WebConnect^3 and are all priced
under $450^4.

Brother recognized that small businesses desire the same kind of connected
capabilities -- scanning to the cloud, web connectivity and mobile printing
technologies -- associated with larger businesses. Additionally, a recent
study among small business owners revealed that important business documents,
like those used for new business opportunities, marketing promotion,
presentations, etc., are typically printed in color^1. With this in mind,
Brother wanted to provide small businesses with an all-in-one that can scan
and connect to leading web-based destinations, while also printing and copying
high-impact color business documents, helping to save small businesses time
and money – up to 60 percent^2 – otherwise spent at local copy centers.

"While developing the new MFC-9000 series, we were inspired by the small
business owner who desires all of the big business features associated with
more expensive machines, but without the high costs or large, bulky design,"
said Steve Feldstein, director of marketing for Brother laser and scanner
products. "Our new MFC-9000 series delivers a feature-rich solution for
in-house production of color business documents in a compact design and at an
affordable price."

Additional business-focused features include a large paper capacity (250
sheets) and a 3.7" color TouchScreen Display with a tap and swipe interface
for simple, intuitive commands and easy access to wireless connectivity and
mobile device printing^6 functionalities.

The MFC-9000 series of digital color all-in-ones was designed with a compact
footprint and host of advanced productivity features that make producing
quality color business documents in-house quick, easy and affordable for small
businesses. The performance advantages of the MCF-9000 series include:
