IBM Infoprint 1532 base model (MT 4536) provides cost-effective workgroup printing
IBM is updating its Infoprint 1532 printers with a new base model which is the lowest priced Infoprint 1532 printer. The Infoprint 1532 network model was previously announced.
The printer is a 35 page per minute (ppm) (1) monochrome laser printer. It is ideal for small and medium businesses and delivers fast print speeds, flexible connectivity, and extensive input and output options to enable a scalable solutions. The printer provides 1200 x 1200 dots-per-inch dpi resolution for crisp text and high-quality graphics.
A number of media options can be installed to offer additional sources of input. Combinations of the 250-sheet drawer, 500-sheet drawer, 2000-sheet drawer, and multiple optional drawers are supported simultaneously. The 250-sheet duplex unit offers two-sided printing for the Infoprint 1532. An Output Expander, High Capacity Output Stacker, and StapleSmart Finisher provide flexibility and a scalable solution in the future.
The Infoprint 1532 can adapt easily to existing infrastructures with the 802.11 Wireless feature and will use the optional wireless feature to reduce installation cost by avoiding the expense of new Ethernet cabling. Add this new model with a wireless card to handle peak workloads, without waiting to reconfigure cables. Preserve architecture or work around areas that are difficult or impossible to cable.
Print PDF documents quickly and easily with the convenient USB Direct Port. Once a flash memory device (thumb drive) is inserted in the front of the printer, a list of PDF files and directories is displayed. Navigational arrows are used to traverse the list/directory tree. The user can easily select the file, choose the number of copies to be printed, and submit the file for printing. Viruses are not a concern because the execution of files does not take place on the memory device. The files are read and printed - no writing to the printer.
The Infoprint 1532 is provided with printer management utilities. MarkVision Professional is a cross-platform print management solution that enables administrators to proactively monitor and manage network devices via a Web browser.
(1) Exact print speed varies depending on document complexity, system configuration, software applications, driver, and printer status.
The Infoprint 1532 printer provides:
- Base and network models
- Productivity and performance on your network
- A high-function, easy-to-use operator interface
- Quick Integration of advanced applications with standard ImageQuick
- A convenient USB Direct Port for PDF printing

The operator panel is a four-line 160 x 64 mm APA (all points addressable) display, supporting four lines with 20 characters per line. This provides easy navigation and usability is improved with simple-to-use, large, bold icons on the buttons. Reliability and serviceability are enhanced with "show me" screens and "tell me more" screens.
MarkVision Messenger enhances administrators' quality for service and improves end-user productivity and satisfaction by providing real-time notification of printer conditions. It facilitates automated responses to these conditions before they become critical and disruptive to user productivity.
Several standard and optional features are provided that improve or enhance the security of the device. Using the latest version of MarkVision Professional, administrators can configure and manage devices by using authenticated and encrypted network communications.
Using Confidential Print, a user may assign a PIN to a print job, and have the printer hold that job until the user physically arrives and enters the correct PIN. This will prevent another user from taking the printed output from the output bin.
These devices also support "printing lockout." This feature is especially useful in preventing printing after normal business hours.
