Friday, August 29, 2008

Press release from the issuing company

SALT LAKE CITY, Aug. 28 -- ONYX Graphics, Inc. today announced it has added support for the new Epson Stylus(R) Pro GS6000 commercial outdoor printer.  The printer driver is available now.

Working closely with Epson, ONYX Graphicshas developed a top-quality production driver for the Epson Stylus Pro GS6000.  The unique features of the Epson Stylus Pro GS6000 are enhanced by the remarkable productivity, cost savings and color output provided by the ONYX(R) workflow family of products.

"This alliance between Epson and ONYX has allowed us to combine our newly developed Epson Stylus Pro printers with ONYX workflow software products in order to address the diversifying needs of print-for-pay users in the best possible way," comments Hiroshi Sotokawa, General Manager of Epson's Inkjet Business Product Planning Department.  "I'm confident that this new combination of technologies will set a new standard for signage."

"Epson is a world leader in print technology with a reputation for manufacturing high quality printers that produce superior image quality," said Jeb Hurley, President and CEO of ONYX Graphics, Inc.  "Our ongoing relationship with Epson enables ONYX to bring our expertise in color workflow for solvent printing to the table, and together we have developed tools that deliver exceptional and consistent results."

The ONYX driver combines key features of the Epson Stylus Pro GS6000 with ONYX product benefits:


--  Full support for all Epson Stylus Pro GS6000 print modes, including the high-speed 720 x 360 dpi two-pass print mode:  immediately use whatever print mode -- high speed or high quality -- is required to get the job done

--  Printer status viewable in the RIP-Queue, displaying ink levels and heater temperature

--  Automatic spot color library matching, including PANTONE(R), HKS and RAL professional color libraries, which help reduce manual print-and-test trials that can increase throughput time

--  Streamlined system for fewer steps from file to print


--  Support for printing with only CMYK inks, reducing ink costs (omitting orange and green when not necessary)

--  Intelligent nesting saves media; job tracking provides cost data by job; and soft proofing reduces turnaround time by eliminating the hardcopy proof step

Superior Color Output

--  Epson-qualified media profiles, including media from Epson and other popular media manufacturers, supported for various print modes, ensure customers consistently get the high quality they are expecting

--  More vibrant colors with true CMYKcmOG color-managed printing for maximum gamut and spot color matching using the printer's expanded ink set

--  ONYX ProductionHouse(TM) and ONYX PosterShop(R) software are G7 and SWOP(R) (Standard Web Offset Printing) certified so users can confidently use digital press proofs with the assurance of matching SWOP criteria


The Epson Stylus Pro GS6000 printer driver is included in the new ONYX PosterShop and ONYX ProductionHouse Version 7.2 software packages purchased after August 11, 2008.  Registered users with licenses obtained prior to August 11 can purchase the driver for ONYX 7.2 versions of ONYX ProductionHouse, ONYX PosterShop and ONYX RIPCenter(TM) software.


Users can download the driver and profiles from the Profile Download Client included in Version 7.2, as well as the ONYX web site at www.onyxgfx.net.  For more information or to locate an authorized ONYX Authorized Reseller, visit http://www.onyxgfx.com or call 800-828-0723 (international +1-801-954-5380).
