DANVERS, Mass.--March 12, 2007-- RISO, Inc. has entered into a relationship with Kodak to offer customers the RISO HC5500 full color inkjet printer as a complementary solution to the KODAK VERSAMARK V-Series Printing Systems for shorter run transactional data printing jobs.
The HC5500 ties directly into the same workflow driving the VERSAMARK V-series system. With image processing and color setting software from Kodak and the high speed sheet-fed capability of the HC5500, this solution is ideal for reprinting small jobs that are inefficient on the high production speed VERSAMARK V-Series system.
Additionally, the HC5500's sophisticated color technology platform enables customers to replicate the look, feel, and quality of the process color output from the VERSAMARK V-Series Printing Systems. Because the HC5500 provides a very close color match and can use the same substrates as the production printer, this solution delivers 100 percent of a customer's printed product with consistent quality throughout the print run.
"With its high speed printing capabilities, sophisticated color printing platform and versatility, the HC5500 is an ideal solution for applications such as shorter run transactional document printing. This alliance with Kodak offers a powerful solution for enhancing productivity while seamlessly delivering the high-quality output that customers expect," said Dennis Burger, full color sales manager for RISO, Inc.
Employing the latest in RISO's FORCEJET(TM) printing technology, the HC5500 printer runs at 120 pages per minute (ppm), A4 landscape in full color in normal mode. Duplex printing in normal mode is up to 92 ppm.
"With jobs that run into the millions of impressions, occasionally some may be damaged in processing and we want to help our customers manage the reprints in an efficient manner," said Ronen Cohen, vice president, marketing, Inkjet Printing Solutions, Kodak's Graphic Communications Group. "This solution ensures our KODAK VERSAMARK V-Series system customer that we can help them meet their customer's quality expectations without any loss in time or quality."
