Oce Arizona T220UV Inkjet Printer Wins DIMA Creative Application Award
Press release from the issuing company
CHICAGO, March 11 -- Oce, a global leader in digital document management and delivery solutions, announced today that the Oce Arizona T220UV flatbed inkjet printer won the Creative Application, Alternative Substrate award presented by the Digital Imaging Marketing Association (DIMA) during the Photo Marketing Association (PMA) 2004 Convention and Trade Show in Las Vegas, Nevada, February 11-15, 2004.
The winning creative application was a set of vinyl window mini-blinds. Off-the-shelf, white vinyl mini-blinds were disassembled and laid flat onto the vacuum table of the Oce Arizona T220UV. An image was printed directly onto the vinyl blinds, which were re-strung and submitted to the DIMA judges. Onyx PosterShop® 6.0 software was used to RIP the image and manage color reproduction.
This award reflects the creativity that can be achieved with the Oce Arizona T220UV printer. Its sister product, the solvent-based Oce Arizona T220 printer, won in this same category last year with a chest-of-drawers entry.
