Xerox introduces its first cut-sheet inkjet press and new continuous feed inkjet platform
DUSSELDORF, Germany – According to InfoTrends, production color inkjet print will account for 57 percent of the total production digital color page volume by 20191. To help print providers capitalize on inkjet’s growing momentum, Xerox (NYSE: XRX) today announced it will launch two new inkjet presses, the Xerox Brenva™ HD Production Inkjet Press and the Xerox Trivor™ 2400 Inkjet Press, at drupa 2016, May 31 – June 10 in Düsseldorf, Germany.

The presses are the first in an innovative new series of inkjet offerings to come from Xerox; Brenva HD to the cut-sheet inkjet market and Trivor 2400 with the Xerox IJ Print Server powered by Fiery® to the continuous feed inkjet market. Each will enable print providers to accelerate growth and drive the production of more high-value applications such as direct mail, transactional, books and catalogs.
“We are focused on expanding our inkjet portfolio with more choices and greater capabilities for print providers to grow their businesses,” said Robert Stabler, senior vice president and general manager, Global Graphic Communications Business Group, Xerox. “With the addition of Brenva HD and Trivor 2400, we’re making inkjet more accessible and affordable to a larger number of print providers.”
Carving out a new space in the cut-sheet inkjet market
Xerox is targeting the space – dubbed by InfoTrends as the Zone of Disruption – that sits below the gap between high-end toner and low-end inkjet presses with Brenva HD. The new press combines the cost effectiveness of inkjet with the flexibilities of cut-sheet to address the needs of print providers in the light direct mail, transactional and book markets. Incorporating many of the reliable paper-path components of the award-winning Xerox iGen®, Brenva HD offers best-in-class automation and reliability features to maximize press productivity including:
- An inline spectrophotometer to assist with calibration and profiling;
- Object-oriented color management to distinguish text, graphics and images and optimizes the image quality of each accordingly;
- K-only mode so it will run as a cost effective monochrome press.
Flexible for today, scalable for tomorrow
The Xerox Trivor 2400 Inkjet Press provides printers with a platform built to grow as business demands increase with the same machine scaling up for more speed, volume and solutions. The Trivor 2400 press combines high performance and increased speed (551 feet/168 meters per minute in color; 656 feet/200 meters per minute in monochrome) in a small footprint. The press will allow print shops to move into catalogs, magazines and color books, giving customers more flexibility. Engineered-in automation ensures superb, reliable image quality including inline density optimization, clear pixel technology, and missing jet detection and correction.
A new print server developed in partnership with EFI®, the Xerox IJ Print Server powered by Fiery, will handle multiple data streams for various application types. The IJ Print Server will simplify integration, provide comprehensive color management and integrate seamlessly with customers’ workflows.
