GOA: Enhanced Controller for Transactional Printing with the KODAK VERSAMARK V-Series Printing Systems
Press release from the issuing company
ROCHESTER, N.Y., Mar. 2 -- Launched at Graphics of the Americas/Xplor 2007 International Exhibition and Conferences, the KODAK VERSAMARK CS300c System Controller for KODAK VERSAMARK V-Series Printing Systems offers data centers, service bureaus, and other producers of transactional documents higher levels of performance, color, flexibility and productivity.
The new controller drives VERSAMARK V-Series Printing Systems in the industry standard Advanced Function Printing/Intelligent Printer Datastream (AFP/IPDS) workflow environment. The system provides the ability to print high volume transactional documents, billing statements and direct mail—in full process color with variable data—with a single pass printing process that saves time and delivers a low cost per image.
“Companies increasingly recognize the power of turning transactional documents into marketing tools by adding personalized messages and promotional offers. Adding color significantly increases response rates and ROI, making these materials even more effective,” said Ronen Cohen, Vice President, Marketing, Inkjet Printing Solutions, Kodak’s Graphic Communications Group. “Kodak was the first to introduce color IPDS solutions and continues to be a leader, enabling marketers to take advantage of one to one communications while providing transactional printers with savings in labor, time, expenses and space by producing an entire piece with the VERSAMARK V-Series Printing Systems and the CS300c System Controller.”
The third generation platform of the CS300c System Controller enables processing speeds up to seven times greater than the previous system controller. The VERSAMARK V-Series Printing Systems with the CS300c controller will run 300 x 600 dpi images at maximum rated web speeds up to 500 fpm (150 mpm) while interpreting full color FS42 or FS45 data through the IPDS data stream.
The system supports up to 16 DH90 printheads, enabling full color, 2-up, duplex printing that equates to printing color documents at up to 2,180 letter size or 2,052 A4 size images per minute. The same printing system, using the CS300c controller, can continue to print legacy jobs in monochrome or spot color.
