Toshiba Tec (TOKYO:6588) today announced that it has received two notable awards for its unique eco-friendly e-STUDIO306LP/RD30 that lets customers reuse office paper for multiple printing.
The Toshiba e-STUDIO306LP/RD30 has been awarded as a gold winner in the category Most Innovative Product of the Year by Best in Biz 2014 International. Best in Biz 2014 is an independent business awards program judged by members of the press and industry analysts. Subsequently in Australia, being recognized as an eco-product that demonstrate product leadership offering a point of difference from its competitors, the e-STUDIO306LP/RD30 has been named an ABA100 winner for the Best Eco Product in The Australian Business Awards 2014.
Toshiba Tec accentuates green attributes in ‘Unique Differentiations’, its essential strategy in the printing business. The e-STUDIO306LP/RD30 is an innovative multi-function device consisting of a printer with erasable toner and an erasing device, which allows paper to be reused multiple times. The e-STUDIO306LP prints documents with an erasable, blue toner while the e-STUDIO RD30 erases the identifiable print from paper. At the same time, a scan function allows documents to be scanned and archived to a designated file location, before the print is erased. By turning paper into a reusable resource, Toshiba’s e-STUDIO306LP/RD30 drastically reduces the environmental impacts associated with printing and copying, offering up to 50% reductions in CO2 emission and 80% reductions in paper use.
Since the e-STUDIO306LP/RD30 was released, it has helped various companies to meet the increasing demand to be sustainable and limited the use of resources. The e-STUDIO306LP/RD30 has developed a powerful reputation for being a unique green printing solution which significantly reduces paper usage. Customers - spanning from logistics and manufacturing to government offices - noticed considerable paper reductions when using the system to print temporary, internal documents. In the case of an Australian logistics user, a drastic reduction as high as 90% was reported. Toshiba’s valuable customers have experienced that the e-STUDIO306LP/RD30, like no other system, contributes to aligning their business goals with environmental responsibilities.
The 2014 awards honour Toshiba’s e-STUDIO306LP/RD30 across the globe for its innovative use of technology to not only drive great value for customers but also make a green impact on their business. In 2013, the e-STUDIO306LP/RD30 already received several awards such as the “METI Minister’s Awards of Green IT Award 2013”and “Cho (Super) MONODZUKURI Innovative Parts and Components Awards 2013” for its ground-breaking solution which reduces environmental burden as well as improves operational efficiency.
While being proud of the awards received, we know we can do better. We have a big responsibility to help our customers to achieve a smaller footprint. With the passion of leading innovation, we are striving to enrich our reputation by introducing Toshiba e-STUDIO306LP/RD30 to more customers.

You use an agile process; your goal is to make your organization more agile. But what about your data infrastructure? The truth is, today's databases are anything but agile - they are effectively static repositories that are cumbersome to work with, difficult to change, and cannot keep pace with application demands. Performance suffers as a result, and it takes far longer than it should to deliver new features and capabilities needed to make your organization competitive. As your application an...

As the world moves from DevOps to NoOps, application deployment to the cloud ought to become a lot simpler. However, applications have been architected with a much tighter coupling than it needs to be which makes deployment in different environments and migration between them harder. The microservices architecture, which is the basis of many new age distributed systems such as OpenStack, Netflix and so on is at the heart of CloudFoundry – a complete developer-oriented Platform as a Service (PaaS...

The term culture has had a polarizing effect among DevOps supporters. Some propose that culture change is critical for success with DevOps, but are remiss to define culture. Some talk about a DevOps culture but then reference activities that could lead to culture change and there are those that talk about culture change as a set of behaviors that need to be adopted by those in IT. There is no question that businesses successful in adopting a DevOps mindset have seen departmental culture change, ...

The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, discussed single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series dat...
