Put all-in-one printer productivity front and center

Everybody on campus is racing to stay on schedule. Keep them one step ahead by placing the MP C4504SP TE laser multifunction printer (MFP) in computer labs, student centers and other centralized campus locations. Users can print up to 45 color pages per minute (ppm), scan hardcopies into digitized files and fax without paper.

Printer security tools safeguard your work and your budget

Help protect against nefarious threats in the most high-traffic areas on campus. Use encryption tools to help protect critical information. Defend against paper theft with a built-in lock on all paper trays. The bypass tray is sealed, so students and staff can't use incompatible paper that may cause jams. You can even use an optional integrated bracket to affix an ID card reader permanently to the multifunction device to reduce vandalism and deter unauthorized use.

Scan paper files to share digitally

Students and educators can interact using scan-to-cloud features, scanning hardcopy notes, term papers, syllabi and other educational documents directly from the MFP to a wide range of optional cloud applications. They can even upload the information directly to Blackboard® Learn* or other learning management systems (LMSs), and access up-to-date additions and addendums from a smartphone or tablet.

*The Ricoh Scan2Learn connector is temporarily unavailable.

Make color printing a primary focus

Add exceptional color to your classroom presentations at up to 1,200 dpi resolution to make them stand out from the crowd. Placing the MFP in a graphics-intensive environment? Add the optional Fiery® Controller so students and staff can produce output on par with professional printers at a fraction of the price.

Give print jobs a professional-grade touch

Improve paper handling, stapling and stacking automatically. Add the optional Hybrid Stapleless + Stapler Finisher for staple-free or stapled document sets, based on the size of the job. Choose from other document finishing options, including an internal stapler finisher, to meet your unique needs.

Tailor your own document workflows

Simplify the user experience with a dynamic, easy-to-use, customizable home screen. Set one-click shortcuts to save steps and reduce errors for commonly used multifunction printer tasks. The 10.1" Smart Operation Panel features Workstyle Innovation Technology, so students, faculty and staff can move between jobs with familiar touchscreen precision.

Add mobile print and scan convenience

When information stops moving, students stop learning. They can download the Ricoh Smart Device Connector App to connect to the MP C4504SP TE multifunction laser printer without drivers, utilities or software. Let them use their personal mobile device to access information in the cloud, including your LMS, and print it in person when they enter a security code at the device.

Printer management features monitor every click

Hold students and staff accountable. With user authentication, you know everyone and every task they perform. Use that knowledge — along with your choice of optional tracking software — to issue chargebacks accurately. You can even schedule reports to be sent directly to your inbox to expedite billing tasks.

Support green campus initiatives

With both an EPEAT® Gold rating and ENERGY STAR certification, the energy-efficient MP C4504SP TE multifunction printer is good for workflows and the environment. Conserve energy, reduce paper use and minimize costs with a host of features, including automatic duplexing and a motion sensor that lets the touchscreen recover from Sleep Mode in less than 1 second.
