Press release from the issuing company
Melville, NY – Canon Solutions America, Inc., a subsidiary of Canon U.S.A., announced today that three of the newest Océ Arizona® Series printer models were given the SGIA Product of the Year Award, marking the seventh year in a row that an Océ Arizona Series printer has been honored with this award since the product line began shipping in 2007.

The Océ Arizona Series printers won in the following categories:
The Product of the Year Awards compare output from competing devices using a common test file designed by SGIA. The prints are reviewed by a panel of judges, each with a background and expertise in digital printing and imaging. The judges look for color appeal, detail and tonality, and the output is also judged on how closely it matches the test print.
The entry image was processed using ONYX® ThriveTM Océ Edition print workflow software, a scalable print production solution based on Adobe® PDF Print Engine technology. ONYX Thrive software manages the wide format print production workflow process offering print service providers accurate, predictable, high quality printing results, and reducing costly errors.
