Press release from the issuing company
On Demand Expo, NYC, NY (February 27, 2001) - CreoScitex, a division of Creo Products Inc. (NASDAQ: CREO; TSE: CRE), is showcasing its Spire™ CSX2000 at the On Demand Digital Printing and Publishing Exposition in New York City. The newest member of the innovative Spire™ Color Server family, the CSX2000 will be officially released on March 19, and is available for customer orders as of March 1. The Spire CSX2000 drives the Xerox DocuColor 2045 and 2060 color digital printers at printer-rated speed. The Spire color servers that have already been installed worldwide are successfully handling a wide variety of files, from the simplest presentation to the most complex, long run, variable information jobs.
Spire color servers, developed especially for the on demand, digital printing market, are based on advanced printing technologies and robust architecture. Together with the Xerox DocuColor 2000 family, they deliver top performance through a very fast RIP and unique productivity-enhancing features. These include the innovative Gallop mode, which enables users to RIP and print the same file simultaneously, and a powerful but easy-to-use, built-in imposition tool which can be used with any application, including variable information jobs. The servers' intuitive user interface, together with the renowned CreoScitex color image quality and unlimited variable information capabilities, bring exceptional value to digital printers and their customers. User response has been overwhelmingly enthusiastic.
"When we made the decision to go full color we took advice from Xerox and chose the CreoScitex Spire server," says Paul Reed of Reed Print Direct Mail Ltd. "We have not been disappointed. It's fast and powerful, allowing us to produce the complicated marketing applications that our customers demand. The color and image quality are also superb. In conjunction with the DocuColor 2060, the Spire server has expanded our product range and opened up new markets."
