Xerox AltaLink C8000

Product Overview

Xerox® AltaLink devices provide new levels of capability and connectivity for mid-size, large workgroups and busy offices. With AltaLink, your extended workforce has instant and secure access to the documents, data and workflows it needs to work faster and more efficiently—from every location and with any device.

  • Smart and Productive

    You’ve never seen a multifunction printer like this before. From its tablet-like user interface to its right-out-of-the-box mobile-friendly connectivity options, the Xerox® AltaLink C8000 Series is the color multifunction device today’s workers have been waiting for.

    Optimized for business processes, and easy to manage as a standalone device or as part of an entire fleet, it’s designed to enable multitasking and collaboration. Create customized workflows, automate complex tasks, print and scan directly to and from the cloud with services like Box®, Microsoft® OneDrive®, Google Drive™, Dropbox™ and Microsoft Office 365™. Connect any time, from anywhere and any device.

    With the touch of a button, you can go to our Xerox App Gallery and download simple, yet powerful, serverless apps to your AltaLink color multifunction printer to increase user productivity and shorten everyday tasks.

  • Powerful and Scalable

    Your workgroups operate more efficiently and effectively with AltaLink. Manage, monitor and upgrade your entire fleet with our Embedded Web Server, or provide interactive training and support right from your desktop with our remote user interface.

    Fewer maintenance hassles, less IT support, high-capacity paper trays and the ability to print on varying paper sizes add up to increased uptime and greater productivity. Scanning, printing and faxing can be done simultaneously, allowing for multitasking during peak periods—and your choice of finishing options means you can configure your AltaLink device for any work environment and any document type, including booklets, brochures and pamphlets.

  • Built-in Security

    The AltaLink C8000 Series Color Multifunction Printer provides the maximum level of security through our partnership with McAfee, proactively addressing risks at the fleet and individual device level.

    Multiple layers of security include data encryption, disk overwrite and industry certifications. At the user level, Secure Print holds documents for release until they’re ready to be retrieved at the device.

  • Color Where it Counts

    With high resolution output of 1200 x 2400 dpi, photo-quality color images and crisp text will give your documents clarity and impact. You can also upgrade your AltaLink C8000 Series with the Xerox® EX-c C8000 Print Server Powered by Fiery®, enabling office users to quickly, efficiently and cost effectively print professional-looking documents.
