Press release from the issuing company

New Océ ColorWave 300 multifunctional printer cuts space requirements and cost of wide format printing

Venlo, The Netherlands — Océ today announced the launch of the world’s first single footprint multifunctional printer that can print, copy and scan wide format documents in both color and black & white.

Saves space and additional investments

Companies no longer need to invest in separate printers for large format color and B&W documents. The new Océ ColorWave® 300 is a true single footprint system for printing, copying and scanning. It is perfect for businesses with limited space, as only one system is needed instead of two to print in both color and B&W. This saves Océ customers 50% in floor space. The system offers architects, engineering, construction and commercial printing companies an ideal alternative for conventional wide format toner systems.

One system for all printing, copying and scanning – in color and B&W

The Océ ColorWave 300 is the first multifunctional wide format printer with a truly integrated scanner. All the functions can be controlled from one simple user panel. Therefore, customers only need to maintain one IP address. Unique Océ technologies, like Océ Image Logic® and Océ Dynamic Switching ensure perfect results every time. The powerful controller swiftly handles all file formats – HP-Gl/2, PDF, DWF, JPEG – without sacrificing speed. Users can also print and scan documents via a USB flash drive.

One for tomorrow that helps businesses grow sustainably

This system offers an economical way to add color to enhance technical documents, such as construction drawings and designs for new cars, and improve color promotional materials. It delivers the ease of use and workflow efficiency of an Océ B&W system and the versatility of a color printer. Because the Océ ColorWave 300 is based on thermal inkjet technology, the system does not produce any ozone, dust or odors.

Launch of innovative products to continue

Océ expects that markets will remain challenging throughout 2010. In order to further strengthen the company’s competitive position and drive sales under difficult market conditions, Océ will continue to introduce innovative products such as the Océ ColorWave 300 printing system. This is particularly relevant at the moment as customers are more likely to invest in systems and services that directly add value to their business. Market analysis shows that the majority of Océ customers select products launched within the last 12 months.
