|Using A Laser MFD You Can…|
|Send faxes directly from your computer's modem without having to print the document and feed it manually into the fax machine.
Scan photos and e-mail them directly by just pressing a button (on models that support the scan-to-email feature).
Use a second function while another function is being performed; this depends on the MFD model.
Scan multiple documents in batch-processing mode, and also OCR them.
Save received faxes on your computer and print only the required ones.
Use it as a copier without the need to connect to a PC by just pressing the Copy button.
And,(Automatic fax/phone switch) If you have a single line for phone calls and faxing, some MFDs will switch to the fax function when there's an incoming fax.
|The Fax Features Of An MFD|
|Most MFDs come with a fax feature. They can send as well as receive faxes without the need for a PC. The number of pages that an MFD can store depends on the fax memory. Some MFDs can provide a detailed report about the number of faxes sent and received, as well as the numbers to which they are sent to and received from. This is useful for system administrators.
The "junk fax barrier" feature in some MFDs lets you specify certain fax numbers that you think are likely to send junk faxes. Faxes from these numbers are then blocked. Then there is the Broadcast feature, which lets you send faxes to a number of recipients at once.
The Delayed fax or Scheduled fax feature lets you prepare a fax to be sent at a later time.
