Press release from the issuing company

January 14, 2009, Trumbull, CT – Océ, an international leader in digital document management, today announced that all of the benefits of the ONYX workflow software are now available to Océ ColorWaveTM 600 printer users. ONYX software provides a complete workflow solution that is both flexible and stable.  It is the leading RIP (raster image processor) software among professional print providers that produce display graphics applications.

Océ ColorWave 600 Printer with Océ CrystalPoint Color Technology

The Océ ColorWave 600 printer is the world's first wide format Océ TonerPearls color printer based on Océ CrystalPoint technology. This unique technology combines the best of toner and inkjet in one clean and sustainable system. Prints are robust and water-fast for outdoor use making them ideal for a wide range of applications. With the Océ ColorWave 600 printer, there is no longer a significant difference between color and black & white output when it comes to productivity and print quality.

Designed for the technical document printing market, the Océ ColorWave 600 printer can also be used to produce short-term display graphics applications such as disposable point-of-purchase displays, architectural project presentations and artist impressions. With an impressive print speed of two E-size sheets per minute, the Océ ColorWave 600 printer delivers high quality color prints on plain and recycled media. To address specific graphics applications, a range of specialty media including blueback papers, outdoor papers, films and Tyvek are available. For these applications – estimated at 20-25 percent of overall business according to Océ's first market research into Océ ColorWave 600 customer application usage – the ability to use ONYX software can help customers optimize their color workflow and create new business opportunities.

ONYX Software Optimizes Workflow, Increases Business Opportunities

By incorporating ONYX software into their Océ ColorWave 600 workflow, customers can now further optimize their color output for the entire application range. The combination of Océ CrystalPoint quality and ONYX superior color management tools offer customers a perfect solution for display, business and consumer graphics applications. These business segments beyond traditional architectural, engineering and construction prints enable Océ ColorWave 600 users to offer additional revenue-producing products to their existing customer base and to new customers.

Combining the Océ ColorWave 600 printer with either ONYX ProductionHouseTM or ONYX PosterShop software packages will not only result in amazing color but also increased productivity, effortless printing and cost savings. The combination creates an easy, scalable and flexible workflow solution to keep printers running at top speed and automates production processes.
