Canon Recognized Among 2016 "MUST SEE 'EMS" at Upcoming GRAPH EXPO
MELVILLE, N.Y., August 10, 2016 – Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, is proud to announce that the Océ VarioPrint i300 and PRISMAsync Color Print Server with G7 Calibration have been selected among the 2016 "MUST SEE 'EMS" in advance of this year's GRAPH EXPO (coming September 25 - 28, 2016 to Orlando's Orange County Convention Center). As "MUST SEE 'EMS," these products have been recognized by a panel of industry experts for their innovation and technological advances in their respective fields: the Océ VarioPrint i300 in the "Pressroom: Digital Presses" and PRISMAsync Color Print Server with G7 Calibration for "Color Management and Quality Control."
Designed to fill the speed and capacity gap that exists between conventional high-end toner-based cut sheet presses and entry-level continuous-feed inkjet presses is the Océ VarioPrint i300. With sheet-fed flexibility, the VarioPrint i300 makes the press accessible to a broad audience in the transaction, direct mail, book and manual markets. Featuring a patented four-color ink system and ColorGrip technology, the Océ VarioPrint i300 can help users print on a wide range of media, including uncoated, coated and inkjet treated paper from 60-300 gsm. The device leverages proven technologies from Canon, including Océ ColorStream® DigiDot inkjet print head technology and solid Océ VarioPrint media handling.
"With the Océ VarioPrint i300, we are able to reduce costs, shorten turnaround times, and broaden our presence in the market with more complete and encompassing capabilities to provide our valued clients," said Chris Illman, president of OneTouchPoint, who provide multi-channel communication, marketing, mailing and fulfillment services to their clients. "We're able to not only to enhance our current services that we offer our customer base, but also go after different types of work that we previously were unable to efficiently address. This innovative product reinforces our place at the leading-edge of technology in the print industry."
Canon's PRISMAsync family of color print servers is the first DFE-embedded Idealliance G7 Certified System.1 With the G7 Calibration feature of the PRISMAsync Color Print Server2, the complexity of G7 calibration for a digital device is simplified, enabling users to calibrate within minutes using a unique, wizard-driven procedure directly at the Canon imagePRESS' console. These DFE-based tools are designed to require no additional investment in software, hardware or training for the average end user to help them achieve high standards of quality and color consistency and get their digital press up to color in a short period of time, generating revenue potential with more print time per day.
