Foster City, Calif. – March 20, 2000 - Electronics for Imaging (EFI) (NASDAQ: EFII), the world leader in enabling networked printing solutions, today announced a new, high speed embedded controller to power Xerox Corporation’s (NYSE: XRX) Phaser 2135 color printer. Capable of printing up to 21 color pages per minute (ppm), this will be the fastest printer in Xerox’s popular Phaser line for the corporate environment. Additionally, EFI’s Fiery controller technology is incorporated in Xerox’s just released DocuColor 2006 printer/copier.
The Phaser 2135 will be the highest performance networked color printer in its class – printing 1200 dots per inch (dpi) at 21 pages-per-minute (ppm) in color, and 26 ppm in black-and-white. This nearly doubles the speed of current Phaser models.
The DocuColor 2006 is a multi-function version of Xerox’s popular Phaser 790 printer, offering photocopying and finishing options. Using EFI’s Fiery technology, the DC2006 includes advanced color management tools, seamless network connectivity architecture, remote monitoring, and centralized workflow management connectivity.
Guy Gecht, CEO, EFI, said, “EFI and Xerox once again partnered to develop printing solutions that offer compelling features for busy corporate customers. The Phaser 2135 is a high speed, high-quality color product that is also economical. The DC2006 offers copier/printer flexibility. As a research-driven company, EFI constantly seeks to improve the productivity and features of our partners’ products to provide the state-of-the-art in fast color printing.”
