Foster City, Calif June 11, 2001 Electronics For Imaging (Nasdaq: EFII), the world leader in enabling networked printing solutions, is hosting its third annual Analyst Day at the company's headquarters in Foster City today. This event provides an opportunity for EFI to share with the financial community its current plans and industry insights.
Among the products to be demonstrated are two of EFI's upcoming Fiery servers that will be shipped during the second half of 2001. One controller is designed for mid-range color copiers, the other is intended for high-end print engines. Both servers will incorporate a new suite of sophisticated color management and graphic arts features. The Fiery controller is EFI's flagship product that enables digital printers and copiers to produce high quality images at top speeds.
Analysts will also view a demo of the company's new Velocity workflow software that begins shipping this month as well as try out the new wireless features on EFI's popular eBeam Internet "whiteboard" appliance for capturing and sharing meeting notes. EFI will also preview a prototype of a low-cost controller that is targeted for sub- $1500 workgroup color printers as one example of future products aimed at increasing its market presence.
"In addition to the opportunity to reaffirm our second quarter guidance, Analyst Day offers us a showcase for EFI's technology and perspective on where the printing industry is going," said EFI CEO Guy Gecht. "As the leading provider of technology to all the major printer/copier manufacturers, EFI is in a unique position to understand market trends and to apply our technological expertise to delivering products the marketplace is seeking."
