"The ColorSpan 5400uv series, with its ability to produce the ultra-high- quality text and graphics you would expect from an aqueous inkjet, and have the outdoor durability typical of solvent inkjet, yet has all of the media flexibility and cost savings of a UV-curable inkjet printer, will have a significant impact on the market," says Bruce Butler, MacDermid ColorSpan director of marketing. "Having the ONYX Version 7 drivers available at the initial release will be an important enabler to our current and future customers."
