CreoScitex Spire Only Color Server to Be Connected with DocuColor iGen3
Press release from the issuing company
BEDFORD, MA -- September 26, 2001 -- CreoScitex, a division of Creo Products Inc., is once again showing leadership in the On-Demand printing arena by releasing new and innovative products at Print '01. A key attraction on the show floor was the demonstration of the CreoScitex Spire(tm) color server driving Xerox Corporation's new DocuColor iGen3 Digital Production Press in the Xerox(r) booth. Other than a digital front end that Xerox self-developed, Spire is the only color server to be connected with the Xerox DocuColor iGen3.
Xerox's DocuColor iGen3 will deliver the flexibility, quick turnarounds and economics that characterize digital printing, yet will produce output with the look and feel of traditional offset printing. It is designed to accelerate the migration from traditional offset printing to digital printing among commercial, in-plant printers, and service bureaus.
