Press release from the issuing company
CHICAGO, Ill., April 17, 2001 - Recognizing the demand for global connectivity, Oce (NASDAQ: OCENY), today introduced a product line which allows companies that design, build or manufacture to print and scan large-format engineering drawings and technical specifications to any location worldwide using the Internet.
The Oce Technical Document Systems (TDS) Series, with three systems addressing departmental through high-volume print needs, adds a variety of functionality and print-quality enhancements to the company's industry leading large-format printer line. Oce, a global leader in digital document management and delivery technology, first revolutionized the large-format market nearly six years ago by helping analog customers migrate to productivity-enhancing digital capabilities.
"Oce is focused on this marketplace like nobody else," said Joyce Virnich, vice president of marketing for the Oce Wide Format Printing Systems business unit. "The Oce TDS Series allows our customers to save time and communicate their ideas from their desktops over the Web. The Oce TDS Series is another example of how we continue to combine our industry knowledge with the latest technologies to help companies achieve huge productivity gains."
Oce recognizes the importance of fast document availability and communication in the technical document market. Effective control of technical document flow, including locations worldwide, allows better and faster product innovation and improved time-to-market, ultimately increasing Oce's customers' competitive advantage.
The concept of the Oce TDS Series blends a number of patented Oce technologies to create a consistent range of products providing digital copying, printing, scanning and distribution of wide-format black and white technical documents. The series - including the Oce TDS400, Oce TDS600 and Oce TDS800 systems - provides a level of uniformity in applications and interfaces that has not been available until now.
