34 PPM DUPLEX COLOR FOR
Fujitsu has raised the bar in the

the fi-4340C is rated at 40 ppm in bitonal
mode at 200 dpi and 34 ppm in color mode at
150 dpi. At slower speeds it offers color
resolution of up to 600 dpi.
According to Scott Francis, senior product
manager for the Imaging Products Group of
Fujitsu Computer Products of America, the fi-

M3093DG. “We are offering users an upgrade

The fi-4340C lists for $5,495, $500 more than

Canon both have lower-priced departmental
color models that are rated slower than the fi-

Is Sale Of Show Just A Quick Fix

industry’s foremost trade organization.
AIIM is not going to go broke for at least a few more
years. This is the net result of the recent sale of its trade
show to Advanstar [see DIR 1/18/02]. AIIM, which was
in real danger of becoming insolvent in the near future
due to dwindling reserves, consistently unprofitable
operations, and the recent sour turn of the stock market,
has bought some time. H
