Oce Announces New Enhancements for Popular CPS700 Color Printer

Press release from the issuing company

Atlanta, GA—October 24, 2003—Oce, a leading provider of production-class digital printing solutions, today announced Version 3.1 of the Océ CPS700 Color Production System. The latest release provides important new enhancements for this versatile, short-run color solution. First, three replacement toners (magenta, yellow and red) are available to expand the printer’s color gamut and enrich detail in warm tones. Everything from flesh tones to bright yellows and reds will look better and more realistic with these new toners. The second enhancement adds the ability to run stocks up to 140lb. index, broadening the Océ CPS700's already extensive media handling and improving overall reliability on all heavy stocks. Other improvements incorporated into Version 3.1 enable better overall performance and reliability. The unparalleled functionality and media flexibility of the Océ CPS700 satisfy a wide range of customer requirements with just one system. As a result, users have more choices and can pursue more revenue opportunities. The reliable Océ CPS700 combines advanced copy press technology with seven direct imaging units to deliver consistent quality from page to page, run to run, and even device to device. For added versatility, users can cluster two or more units to support higher volumes, gaining the advantage of high volume capacity without investing in limited, single-purpose equipment. “With Version 3.1, Océ continues to build on an already impressive array of patented technologies to bring our customers the best color tools for the challenges they face today,” said Carl Joachim, vice president of marketing for Océ Printing Systems USA, Inc. “The improved color gamut in the Océ CPS700 means better results for our customers, whether they need more detail in photographic images or a more accurate rendering of the company logo. Enhanced media handling provides more options for finished output, and improves reliability. By continually looking for ways to improve our offerings, we guarantee our customers will have the technology they need for the job at hand.” The Océ CPS700 offers outstanding features to meet the increasingly varied color output needs of short run publishing and other professional printing and can handle any number of color applications, including duplex or tri-fold, personalized, or full color. The Océ CPS700 supports a variety of media, giving commercial printers more options for their customers. Printers can capture a wider array of higher margin marketing applications, from customized automobile policies to personalized investment newsletters. The system is ideal for direct mail pieces, training materials, corporate brochures, business proposals, presentations, invitations, business cards and other applications in environments that produce 30,000 to 100,000 color prints per month. With such flexibility in their shops, printers can become the “go to” provider for nearly all their customers’ color output needs. The Océ CPS700 also solves storage and inventory issues that have long plagued businesses. Printing and storing large volumes of color documents is not feasible, and more practical short-run quantities are becoming the standard. With the CPS700, users can produce exact quantities of materials cost effectively and reduce the waste associated with large runs and obsolete inventory. Clustering further increases the value of these high-performance devices. Two or more Océ CPS700 units can easily meet the requirements of jobs that demand more output volume, with Océ Doc Works Exec server management software automatically directing workflow. When a clustered configuration isn’t needed, the devices can be used singly and simultaneously for multiple short-run color jobs. This versatility enables printers to handle more of the jobs their customers demand, while maximizing investments in equipment and training.
