GRAPH EXPO 2003 CHICAGO--Sept. 29, 2003-- Oce, a leading provider of production-class digital printing solutions, announces general availability of the Oce VarioPrint 2090 multifunctional printer/copier/scanner, the newest member of the Oce VarioPrint 2000 family of production-class digital cut-sheet printers. The new 85-PPM system is unparalleled as a productive, on-demand solution for both offices and central and commercial print centers, and is being shown for the first time in the United States in booth 3200 at the Graph Expo show. The Oce VarioPrint 2090 provides digital cut-sheet imaging for office printing and copying, retail print shops, and centralized printing and copying operations, or distributed document work centers. This versatile Oce VarioPrint 2000 family of digital printing systems represents a multi-purpose investment that can be used by more people more often for more purposes. The rapidly expanding Oce VarioPrint 2000 family combines network printing, copying and scanning within a single device, making it easier for customers to turn paper documents into electronic images that can be faxed, copied, or distributed electronically. Oce Image Logic technology ensures optimal image quality. The flexible Oce VarioPrint 2090 helps companies reduce the number of devices and space needed to support more users in the enterprise for a wider range of applications. The workhorse Oce VarioPrint 2090 delivers a monthly capacity of 70,000 to 500,000 prints per month, with a consistent speed of 85 8.5" x 11" prints per minute. Even complex jobs with multiple media types and precise finishing requirements are handled without compromising productivity. "Within one platform, the Oce VarioPrint 2090 provides top quality tools for both document input and output and enables full digitalization of the print flow," said Carl Joachim, vice president of marketing for Oce Printing Systems USA. "By better enabling digital document workflow, VarioPrint 2000 systems help companies be more competitive through faster turnaround and easier access to information." The new Oce VarioPrint 2090 delivers state-of-the-art multifunctional technology to help users in a variety of markets, including finance, government, telecommunications, manufacturers, commercial printers, and corporate print centers. With production-class performance, the system improves workflow for high-quality office and on-demand applications like booklets, manuals, invoices, presentations, memos, personalized packets, reports, packing lists, and other documents needed by an enterprise. The Oce VarioPrint 2090 supports true convergence with the quality and versatility required for typical office documents, and the security and productivity needed for transaction documents. With the Oce VarioPrint 2090, digital print providers gain the ability to take on a wider range of value-added services and deliver work more quickly, while maintaining competitive quality and pricing. Impressive flexibility in copy materials and sizes expands choices for more applications from just one system. Support for a wide range of paper formats and media types provide total versatility for all the jobs a commercial printer or central printing department might encounter. The Oce VarioPrint 2000 models can also be used for printing tasks that are not cost-effectively assigned to higher-speed production presses, such as proofs or short run documents. With on-demand printing of time-sensitive documentation, government, legal and other organizations gain the security of always having current content, while reducing warehousing and inventory waste. Oce further accommodates the need for the highest security by providing a unique Digital Mailbox system and an optional secure PIN code. A full range of automated capabilities help keep workflow running smoothly, while reducing costly, time-consuming manual labor. Productivity-boosting functionality includes simultaneous processing and full speed duplexing and finishing. Automatic features include paper selection and zoom, reproduction of mixed originals (text, photos, illustrations), full-page exposure control, and online stapling and offset stacking. Four paper trays with an advanced air separation and vacuum feed system can handle almost any stock up to 11" x 17" without jams or unnecessary downtime. Tray linking further reduces the delays of manual intervention. As a result, companies save time, improve the quality of deliverables, and minimize the risk of downtime. By combining powerful functionality with simple operation, the new system can be part of an established enterprise document strategy, or the growth path for companies just adopting digital output. Drivers for Windows 2000.XP/NT4, Windows 95/98, and Postscript Printer Description support for Mac OS 8.x and 9 give the Oce VarioPrint 2090 broad compatibility in typical commercial, departmental and office environments. The Oce VarioPrint 2090 can be combined with Oce PRISMA workflow software solutions for a powerful approach to today's multi-vendor document environments. Oce PRISMA is an architected family of workflow management software solutions that allow organizations to maximize the performance and cost-effectiveness of multi-vendor operations independent of location, system, or print device. Oce PRISMA eliminates the inconsistencies, investment redundancies, and other tough issues that plague both single- and multi-vendor workflows. The new system can be operated with Oce Doc Works Exec and Oce Office Exec to further optimize print-on-demand workflow. Users can select print options and features without configuring print devices. Oce software will intelligently route print jobs to the right printer, track print job costs, and provide the information for departmental billing. The VarioPrint 2090 can also be combined with Oce PRISMAsatellite to address the needs of mid-range electronic data processing (EDP) departments. PRISMAsatellite provides the ability to transform unformatted data into value-add statements, reports and invoices through advanced formatting, insertion of color, and electronic delivery options. These capabilities can decrease payment timeframes and reduce customer support inquiries. The ecologically sound Oce VarioPrint 2090 continues the Oce commitment to environmental protection and performance. The system has virtually no ozone emission and is designed for future recycling, in addition to being fully compliant with EnergyStar requirements.
