Press release from the issuing company

CHICAGO--Feb. 7, 2002-- Oce announced the introduction of Oce Repro Desk Server 1.0.2 for the recently introduced Oce TDS800 high-speed, wide-format printing system. This new version of print automation software improves the printing workflow and increases productivity of print jobs for commercial reprographers. Oce Repro Desk Server 1.0.2 is the latest version of Oce's highly successful job submission and print management software. Oce Repro Desk software facilitates the electronic submission of drawing files and print request from clients to their reprographers while providing the reprographers with extensive print management and accounting functions to maximize the productivity of their printing equipment assets. Powered by Autodesk technology, Oce Repro Desk Server 1.0.2, when combined with Oce's high-speed digital printers such as the Oce TDS800, provides the most comprehensive printing solution for the reprographics market. A server-based printing application, Oce Repro Desk Server 1.0.2 allows a reprographer complete control and preprocessing of jobs before submitting them to the Oce Power Logic Controller. This distributed processing approach allows for streamlined operation within the print shop and provides an open platform for continued product development. "We are excited about this new platform for Oce Repro Desk solutions. Oce Repro Desk Server 1.0.2 leverages the successful core Oce Repro Desk product as developed by Autodesk Building Collaboration Services, while taking full advantage of the new Oce Power Logic Controller,'' said Joyce Virnich, vice president of marketing for the Wide Format Printing Systems business unit of Oce-USA, Inc. "The Oce TDS800 has already gained wide acceptance in the marketplace, and is outperforming the benchmark Oce 9800 in terms of reliability, productivity, and image quality. Oce is focused on the commercial reprographics market like no one else, and Oce Repro Desk Server 1.0.2 continues that commitment.'' "The combination of Oce's successful large-format printing technology with Autodesk's digital printing software has helped reprographers improve printing workflow and deliver high quality prints to their customers in the building industry,'' said Chris Bradshaw, vice president, Autodesk Building Collaboration Services. "Oce Repro Desk Server 1.0.2 effectively streamlines the entire printing process so that reprographers and their customers can save time and money.'' Oce Repro Desk Server 1.0.2 is a Windows-based print software that automates receipt of customer print jobs, as well as job accounting, management and queuing. It includes extensive previewing, auto-checking and trial printing facilities.
