BERTL 4 star Highly Recommended Award for OcÚ CPS800 Platinum, CPS900 Platinum and OcÚ Color Production Tandems
CHICAGOOctober 15, 2006OcÚ (NASDAQ: OCENY), a global leader in digital document management and delivery solutions, announces that OcÚ has received a BERTL 4-star Highly Recommended award for the OcÚ CPS800 Platinum, OcÚ CPS900 Platinum and OcÚ Color Production Tandem (CPT) systems. The award follows extensive testing and technical evaluation of the OcÚ systems by the Digital Production Division of BERTL, the US-based publisher of news, research and analysis on digital imaging systems. The award validates that the OcÚ CPS 800 Platinum and CPS900 Platinum deliver the productivity of much larger, costlier digital printers with slightly higher speed. Color consistency of the OcÚ systems was also highlighted in BERTL's report, even across multiple OcÚ CPS systems and different job printing times and locations.
Both the OcÚ CPS800 Platinum and CPS900 Platinum systems have an engine speed of 30 letter impressions per minute, and 34 letter impressions per minute on ledger-size media for all supported media weights. Unlike other traditional printers, the OcÚ CPS digital color printers can duplex in a single cycle at full-rated speed up to the highest media weights. Productivity is further enhanced by reliable, easy-to-use functions that require minimal user intervention.
Press the "Green Button" and Walk Away
Users can load a job, press the "green button" and walk away, knowing that the printer will alert them when paper needs to be replenished. Daily maintenance, calibration and routine visits by technicians are not required. In fact, with the proven OcÚ Direct Imaging and OcÚ Copy Press technologies, OcÚ has eliminated the complexities that cause repeated problems and production interruptions with conventional digital printers and presses.
The result is that the OcÚ CPS800 Platinum, CPS900 Platinum and OcÚ Color Production Tandem systems deliver consistent productivity for uninterrupted production of large print volumes in high production environments.
Offset-like Look and Feel
Vitally important for digital print producers is the high output quality of the OcÚ systems, resulting in offset comparable look and feel. Both systems are the first seven color digital printers with simultaneous CMYK and RGB. This process, known as OcÚ Copy Press technology, creates a toner mono-layer, which is literally pressed into the paper. The systems can also run a wide variety of media, including textured and embossed papers. Print output is easy to handle for finishing, with no toner cracking when folding and trouble free laminating and varnishing.
The productivity, reliability, color consistency and output quality of the OcÚ systems make them an excellent choice for high volume corporate printrooms, commercial printers and marketing services. In the digital print world where time means making or losing money on a minute-by-minute basis, the productivity, reliability, quality, efficiency, ease of use and high throughput at low stress levels are all mission-critical factors for print professionals. The OcÚ CPS and CPT systems meet companies' needs for expandable solutions that are productive today and will remain productive over a long lifecycle.
The OcÚ CPS printers bring high-end color press capabilities at a lower investment level and lower cost of ownership than costlier high-end digital presses. When needed, print professionals can combine two or more OcÚ CPS systems as a Color Production Tandem system, enabling productivity to be doubled or even tripled cost-effectively while preserving color consistency. The systems can be linked by OcÚ PRISMATM software to create robust, productive solutions with high flexibility and advanced load sharing and color splitting capabilities.
