EFI Fiery Technology and Xerox multifunction printers advance office productivity

Press release from the issuing company

Chicago - EFI, a world leader in customer-focused digital printing innovation, today announced the Fiery Network Controller designed for the Xerox WorkCentre 7545 and WorkCentre 7556 color multifunction printers (MFPs). The combination provides productivity, ease of use and high-quality color to demanding office environments.

The WorkCentre 7545 and WorkCentre 7556 color MFPs offer color print speeds up to 45 and 50 pages-per-minute (ppm) and 45 and 55 ppm black-and-white, respectively. The MFPs, which can copy, scan, fax and email, include advanced document management and workflow tools to make office work easier.

"We're bringing the power of Fiery technology to the WorkCentre 7545 and WorkCentre 7556 to provide businesses and workgroups with more choices to meet their printing needs," said Leah Quesada, vice president of marketing, Enterprise Business Group, Xerox Corporation. "These new MFPs with the Fiery controller deliver a unique combination of high performance, intuitive publishing, and color management tools to the office worker."

"Our latest Fiery controller paired with the advanced features of the WorkCentre 7545 and WorkCentre 7556 means office staff of any skill level can quickly and simply produce professional-looking documents," said John Henze, vice president of Fiery marketing, EFI. "While there are many new capabilities to enhance performance and color quality, we think customers will find Fiery VUE has a huge impact on their ability to easily create high quality documents, giving them back valuable time to focus on other important tasks."

The WorkCentre 7545 and 7556 MFPs support Fiery VUE, the desktop application that makes publishing of professional-looking finished documents fast and simple for all office workers. Fiery VUE allows users to interact with a document on-screen in 3D to sculpt and then preview exactly how the finished document will look when printed. With a single click, users can create eye-catching booklets, presentations and other documents, while reducing waste and overall costs.

The Fiery Network Controller for the WorkCentre 7545 and WorkCentre 7556 provides exceptional color fidelity. Office users looking for high-quality color can rely on Fiery ColorWise color management tools to give them rich color documents, while the Spot-On option ensures the best match of PANTONE colors and streamlines workflow with standardized corporate color palettes.

To meet tough security requirements of enterprise environments, the Secure Erase feature automatically removes all traces of deleted print files stored on the Fiery hard drive. All Fiery controllers are easily deployed in Windows and Macintosh environments and support all industry standard networking protocols.
