Press release from the issuing company
San Jose, California, March 25, 2002 — For the sixth year in a row, Oce LightJet products have won the DIMA Shoot-Out at PMA 2002, in the wide format photo printer category. This year, two Oce LightJet printers received Shoot-Out honors: the Oce LightJet 500XL photo printer (52” and wider) and the Oce LightJet 430 photo printer (36” to 51” wide).
Since 1997, Oce LightJet wide format printers have won the DIMA Shoot-Out for its category, which pits competing products—using similar digital printing technology—directly against each other. Winners are chosen by DIMA (Digital Imaging Marketing Association, part of PMA) members prior to the annual PMA (Photo Marketing Association) trade show and convention. The 2002 winning prints were chosen from more than 80 entries from 33 companies at the recent PMA 2002 trade show in Orlando, Florida.
Oce LightJet models have won more honors for quality than any other wide format photo printer, including DIMA Shoot-Out at PMA in 1997, 1998, 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002 (two wins); DPI Product of the Year in 1996, 2001; Cool2 Award in 1997, 1998, 1999, 2000; COMFOT Mexico Shoot-Out in 2001; and Photographic Processing Top Product in 2001.
