ROCHESTER, N.Y., June 7 -- Experience image resolution twice that of previous generations of continuous inkjet printheads with the KODAK VERSAMARK VX5000e Printing System. The high resolution system delivers a valuable combination of high quality full color print, high productivity, and an affordable cost per page, while supporting a variety of print formats.

The VERSAMARK VX5000e Printing System builds on the proven VERSAMARK VX5000 Printing System. It adds enhanced resolution of 300 x 1200 dpi for improved color quality, clearer images and text, plus sharper barcodes.

“The VERSAMARK VX5000e System enables customers to print a wide variety of applications on the fastest full color production system with unlimited variable content that makes the output documents a more effective marketing tool,” said Ronen Cohen, Vice President, Inkjet Printing Solutions, Kodak’s Graphic Communications Group. “The VX5000e is yet another improvement to our successful V-Series product line of printers that are equipped with powerful workflow solutions that enable easy integration to the customer’s environment, whether it’s a commercial or data center printer.”

The VERSAMARK VX5000e System can produce a wide variety of high volume applications, including transactional documents, TransPromo documents, direct mail, books, and a variety of print on demand outputs. With a web speed of 328 feet per minute (100 mpm), the VERSAMARK VX5000e System produces high volume output quickly, accurately and cost effectively. Up to 1,432 images per minute for U.S. letter size documents and 1,348 A4 images per minute can be produced with a 2 up, duplex configuration. In addition, ink drop size is concentrated on the VERSAMARK VX5000e System, resulting in reduced ink consumption.

The VERSAMARK VX5000e is available with the KODAK VERSAMARK CS600 System Controller. The CS600 Controller incorporates an enhanced EFI® FIERY® Digital Front End, providing workflow for applications using PPML-GA, PDF or POSTSCRIPT.
