Océ and Canon unveil first jointly developed digital production press

Wednesday, March 23, 2011

Press release from the issuing company

Venlo, The Netherlands - Océ, an international leader in digital document management, and Canon, world leader in imaging solutions, today announced the introduction of their first jointly developed printing solution - the Canon imagePRESS C7010VPS series combining Canon color digital technology with Océ PRISMAsync operation management.

Excellent complementary fit

Canon first announced plans to acquire Océ in November 2009 and completed its offer for Océ in March 2010. Since then, Canon and Océ have worked to strengthen their customer offerings by leveraging the two companies' excellent complementary fit in technology and product range.

First joint development

The companies' first jointly developed solution combines Canon's proven digital color press technology of the imagePRESS C7010VP series with Océ PRISMAsync workflow innovation. The imagePRESS C7010VPS series takes color production printing and workflow efficiency to the next level, offering customers the unique benefits of one integrated system.

Productivity for print professionals

The series introduces a number of unique productivity-boosting features, including an intelligent job scheduler, advanced color management and an easy to operate, intuitive user interface on a new 15" full color TFT LCD touch panel. The job scheduler supports up to eight hours of plan-ahead production. The accurate prediction of production time for scheduler functionality is possible due to the exceptional integration of engine and controller technologies. This full integration of digital front end with the engine into one system offers print professionals the convenience, run length and cost benefits of digital production.

Uniform and task-based workflow

By introducing the imagePRESS C7010VPS Canon and Océ enable any operator to run complex color jobs as easily as black & white ones with a standardized operating concept for PRISMAsync-driven color and black & white production printers, such as the Océ VarioPrint 6000 series. For integration into diverse workflows, imagePRESS C7010VPS is fully supported by Océ PRISMA software suites for creation, prepress and make ready, production management and archiving.


The jointly developed product signifies an important milestone in the compelling combination of Canon and Océ as it is evidence of the existing R&D synergies, ensuring that Canon and Océ customers have access to leading technology in the industry. For print professionals in CRD and commercial printing, this means a platform that delivers offset-quality print and improves production efficiency with the convenience, run length and cost benefits of digital production.

Canon and Océ continue joint developments to serve more customers and markets. Next focus areas are solutions for customers in transaction and direct mail and the incorporation of Océ PRISMAsync operation management in a model from the light production color series Canon imageRUNNER ADVANCE.

On display in Washington and Barcelona

The imagePRESS C7010VPS is on display this week at the 2011 AIIM On Demand Exhibition in the US capital Washington, D.C. and at the Graphispag 2011 International Printing Industry and Communication Exhibition in Barcelona, Spain. Both trade fairs open today.

Jointly offering customers superior printing solutions

The jointly developed solution signifies a first step for Canon and Océ as they further strengthen cooperative efforts in the technology and product fields. Aiming to become the global leader in the printing industry, the two companies will capitalize on their complementary strengths to offer a wide range of hi-quality printing solutions.
