Press release from the issuing company
Needing High Speed 2/2 Digital Color
Oce PageStream 210 Twin Printing System Now Generally Available
ANAHEIM, CA, OCTOBER 28, (Xplor booth # 632)—Oce, a leader in digital document management and delivery technology brings the market greater capabilities for high speed, two-over-two color output. The Oce PageStream 210 Twin system supports duplex, simplex and 2/2 highlight color printing, allowing operations to satisfy convergent applications requiring color. The ability to handle convergent workflow is critical to remaining competitive in an increasingly diverse market that requires the ability to generate new revenue opportunities.
"Today’s evolving market is creating the need to support a wider range of applications with existing digital printing equipment and processes, and Oce is committed to meeting this need. The versatility of the Oce PageStream 210 Twin lets customers capture new convergence opportunities immediately, while at the same time giving them resources for the future," said Carl Joachim, vice president of marketing for Oce Printing Systems USA. "The ability to produce two-over-two highlight color for PostScript, IPDS and other environments also puts the Oce PageStream 210 Twin in a unique position to serve the convergence needs of the printing marketplace."
The heavy duty, multifunctional Oce PageStream 210 Twin lets print operations greatly expand their services with just one resource, and the just-in-time output helps reduce inventory, decrease risk and lower order fulfillment costs. With less budget allocated to warehousing and stock, companies can achieve bigger profit margins and improved cash flow. Improved order turnaround time and wider choice of output options also enhances customer service offerings.
Many Features in Just One System
The full-featured Oce PageStream 210 Twin system gives users many options including duplex or simplex output, highlight color, and 240, 300 or 600 dpi resolution. The system comprises two print engines which can be operated independently for processing of two separate applications or they can be joined together for more complex 2/2 color output requirements. The system also provides flexibility to print black and a highlight color on one printer, for example, and black and blue on the other engine for two colors on the front and back of each page. Versatile finishing capabilities support a wide range of applications and market opportunities, with online and offline options that include stitching and stapling.
The system produces 210 two-colored impressions per minute and has a duty cycle of more than five million impressions per month. The printer’s unique split Quick Change Developer Station (QCDS) lets users create duplex documents with black and a different highlight color on each side for true two-over-two color. The exclusive Oce QCDS makes it simple to switch colors with one easy change out. Through the QCDS, the Oce PageStream 210 Twin will support exclusive Oce CustomTone toner, which allows color matching for logos and other highlight color images and graphics for customers who need specific color output for branding, corporate standards or other design requirements.
Architecture Independence Enables Easy Convergence
The newly available system is ideal for production publishing, transactional data printing and convergent applications that require high performance, the impact of color, PostScript compatibility and platform flexibility. Extensive front-end support, available through the Oce PRISMA family of architected software solutions, helps users create high-impact color documents and manage complex workflow automatically in a variety of platforms. It can accommodate PostScript data as well as LCDS, PCL, TIFF, IPDS, ASCII and PDF. Users can produce the exact same application across a range of data streams and output devices without modification.
The Oce PageStream 210 Twin achieves full Xerox LCDS compatibility through PRISMA LCDS. This allows users of Xerox LCDS cut-sheet devices to easily replace old equipment with faster, more functional web-fed printers and add color capabilities without changes to existing workflow. The Oce PageStream 210 Twin requires less manual intervention for loading and troubleshooting than cut sheet devices.
