Xerox Docucolor 8000 Digital Press Licensed By Pantone
Press release from the issuing company
November 9, 2004 -- Xerox Corporation's DocuColor(tm) 8000 Digital Press with the DSP8000 Color Server is now approved and licensed by Pantone, enabling optimal color representation and printing of more than 1,000 solid PANTONE Colors.
The DSP8000, a server that processes print files and drives the DocuColor 8000, is PANTONE Calibrated and used in conjunction with the PANTONE Color Look-up Table. Pantone and Xerox color scientists used information about the DocuColor 8000's color engine, paper stock capabilities and other specifications to develop the table's color data. This data ensures that prints from the DocuColor 8000 press deliver the most accurate and consistent Pantone color.
In addition to the DocuColor 8000, the Xerox iGen3(tm) Digital Production Press and the DocuColor 6060 Digital Press with Xerox's DocuSP are also licensed by Pantone and, earlier this year, Xerox worked with Pantone to create PANTONE Digital Chips Books for both presses. The books, designed to give graphic designers and print providers a more consistent and accurate visualization and selection of PANTONE Colors before printing on digital equipment, are currently available as part of the Xerox Profit Accelerator(tm) portfolio of customer resources. A digital chips book for the DocuColor 8000 is currently being developed and will be produced and available during the first quarter of 2005.
