Océ CS4100 Scanner Series Recommended by BERTL

Friday, August 01, 2008

Press release from the issuing company

July 31, 2008, Trumbull, CT – Océ, an international leader in digital document management and delivery solutions, today announced the Océ CS4100 series large format color scanners have been awarded a Highly Recommended 4-Star BERTL rating, joining the Océ TDS450 and Océ TCS500 large format printers as Océ products included in this distinctive category.

Each year, independent BERTL research analysts review hundreds of devices, assigning their highly recommended rating to a select few that deliver a range of business-critical features and functions that are above average and provide potential buyers with a good return on investment.

"Earning this 4-star rating is a testament to the uncompromising performance and feature-rich design of the Océ CS4100 scanner series," said Sal Sheikh, Vice President, Marketing, Wide Format Printing Systems division of Océ North America. "Our goal is to provide highly reliable scanning solutions that offer maximum scanning flexibility, productivity and color capture accuracy.  BERTL's acknowledgement of these traits in the Océ CS4100 series reinforces we've achieved this goal."

Award Winning Products Deliver a Versatile Solution, Exceptional Quality

A family of ten scanners, the Océ CS4100 series offers devices with scan widths of either 36", 42" or 54".  A high speed S version more than doubles the color scanning speed for the standard version from 0.6 ips to 1.5 ips at 200 dpi.  Maximum resolution of the standard and S versions is 1200 dpi.  There is also an enhanced quality Q version that has a maximum resolution of 9,600 dpi.  Software options include either Océ Scan; an inexpensive, basic scan-to-file application that is easy to use and features scan-to-PDF functionality; or Océ Color Copy, a flexible, feature-rich software that creates a copier out of a scanner and a printer in addition to full scan-to-file functionality.  Users can interface with most Océ and non-Océ wide format printers and connect any number of printers to a single scanner.

"BERTL's 4-star Highly Recommended ratings are reserved for products that exceed expectations to deliver end users with exceptional quality and a sound investment," said Margie Davis, Managing Director of BERTL. "After thorough evaluation, the Océ CS4100 scanner series emerged as one of the handful of devices deserving of our 4-star rating."

BERTL touts the Océ CS4100 scanner series as feature-rich, reliable and high-quality with a color capture accuracy that is among the best in the industry. According to BERTL, "They operate smoothly and, with the scanners' high reliability, they should provide trouble-free operation for years to come."  These traits support BERTL's recommendation of the Océ CS4100 series for CAD, GIS, graphic arts, photo lab and reprographic applications.

BERTL recognized the following distinct advantages of the Océ CS4100 series scanners to end-users:

- The calibration procedure is the most comprehensive and automated in the wide format scanner industry.

- Color calibration can be performed by an operator that does not have specific knowledge of color calibration.

- Océ Scan software is a professional scanning tool that gets the job done.

- Every control and dialog box is organized in a very structured way, enabling a short learning curve.

- Pixel level precision cropping and alignment of the image.

- Flexible scan-to-file, scan-to-viewer, scan-to-net, and scan to-batch feature.

- Easily upgradeable from the Base version to the Q version.
