CHICAGO--Oct. 11, 2004-- Creo Inc. and Xerox Corporation have launched the SpireTM CXP3535e color server for the Xerox DocuColor 3535 color copier/printer system, bringing the key benefits of Creo professional graphic arts solutions to small print shops and graphics-intensive office environments. The Spire CXP3535e features a new user interface, providing a workflow process consistent with those delivered by systems designed for high-end production environments.

Designed to electronically process and transmit color images to the DocuColor 3535, the Spire CXP3535e color server lets people maximize the print quality and performance of the printer's engine by delivering powerful color management, color calibration and enhanced productivity. The Spire CXP3535e is being shown for the first time at Graph Expo, the leading U.S. trade exhibition for the graphic communications industry. "Both graphic artists and graphics-intensive office professionals need to be able to print production-quality documents with a solution that is affordable and easy to use," said Tim Williams, president, Xerox Office Group. "Creo helps Xerox customers by providing a color print server that increases the productivity of the DocuColor 3535, making it a compelling offering for a wide range of light-production customers."
