Scitex Vision Begins Commercial Deliveries of the Scitex XLjet
Press release from the issuing company
Herzliya, Israel, February 4, 2002 – Following successful beta sites at leading customers, Scitex Vision has commenced commercial deliveries of the Scitex XLjet. Scitex Vision installed ten new systems in the global market during the course of 2001. In addition, we accrued a considerable backlog of machine orders for the coming year.
"The Scitex XLjet is unquestionably the most versatile, cost-effective high-end system in the super-wide format market. We designed the system to directly address the printer’s needs. Our continuous dialogue with our customers enables us to respond effectively to their preferences," says Jean-Marc Blum, Scitex Vision V.P. Marketing.
The Scitex XLjet is exceptionally flexible, supporting easy switching from 4 to 6 colors and printing on a variety of substrates including textiles. Different quality demands can be met just as easily with close-viewing applications printed in high quality mode and the Supertext feature for extra fine text and a long-distance viewing application printed at high production rates. In addition, this “king of versatility” can print double-sided as well as backlit applications. Compared to other high-end systems on the market, the Scitex XLjet gets the best scores with a combination of features that add up to considerable operating savings and productivity gains.
Our customers are also enthusiastic about the advanced Onyx RIP that is now being offered with the Scitex XLjet. Another welcome addition is a new XL Textile mode added to the 4 modes already available on the system; this mode is used for substrates that need to absorb a lot of ink in order to achieve a glossy look. The improved software is based on beta site customer feedback. All these capabilities make the Scitex XLjet no.1 in its class.
