Press release from the issuing company
Venlo, The Netherlands, February 4, 2002 — With the new Oce 5250 high-speed color printer, Oce offers a versatile and cost-effective solution for users who need to make wide-format prints in both black-and-white and color. These include corporate workgroups and departments, and smaller design and architectural companies. Thanks to its unique extra printhead for black, the Oce 5250 has best-in-class black-and-white speed.
Maximum productivity with powerful Oce controller
Productivity of the Oce 5250 is further maximized by the powerful Oce controller, which ensures sustained, high-speed printing of even large and complex drawing files. The controller’s ability to handle complex files locally contributes to the high printing speed, and keeps network loads to a minimum.

"Users in departments and small workgroups want both productive operation and good print quality, and we are answering those needs with the Oce 5250. This new printer offers enhanced productivity for the many prints that are still made in black-and-white, while the Oce controller has the power to handle large and complex drawing files speedily, including those with color ."
Simple user interface and easy paper loading
Continuous printing without frequent interruptions is supported by the ease of operation of the Oce 5250. The clear user interface and quick, easy paper loading makes this printer very simple to operate, even by occasional, ‘walk-up’ users.
Interruptions are further minimised by the built-in ink level low detection, and the easily accessible ink tanks and printheads which can be quickly replenished or replaced when necessary.
Making the Oce 5250 a highly versatile printer for all-round printing in many CAD, GIS, architectural and similar environments, its high resolution gives excellent definition of fine lines and detailed drawings. The superior print strategy gives reliable and even color density for consistent reproduction in all print modes.
Can be located anywhere it is needed
Bringing the benefits of fast, high-quality wide-format printing to the departmental and workgroup level, the Oce 5250’s low noise level and built-in network connectivity allow it to be located and used wherever it is needed. If desired the printer can be relocated simply at any time, simply by connecting it to the nearest network node. Connected directly to the network without the need for a host PC, the Oce 5250 is then ready for immediate operation.
On-board PostScript‚ interpreter
For high compatibility with users’ applications and working environments, the Oce 5250 has an on-board PostScript‚ interpreter. Together with the extensive range of available drivers, this allows the printer to be used with the widest possible range of applications, operating environments and workstation hardware, both today and in the future. The virtually universal acceptance of the PostScript printer control language means that the user’s investment is protected and ensures that the printer will not be made obsolete by new developments in software and applications.
