EFI Proofing Solutions Now Available for HP Color LaserJet 9500 Series Printers

Press release from the issuing company

FOSTER CITY, Calif. – March 17, 2004 – EFI, the world leader in digital imaging and print management solutions for commercial and enterprise printing, today announced that EFI Colorproof Laser with Best technology now supports the HP Color LaserJet 9500 series printers, offering an affordable solution for producing consistently accurate concept proofs, as well as cost-effective, yet high-quality short run prints in agency, pre-press, corporate, CRD, and in-plant environments. EFI Colorproof Laser is an easy-to-use digital proofing system that enables users to deliver the same color accurate proofs they would get from an inkjet with the speed, enhanced throughput, and lower cost advantages of digital laser printing. Designed for production environments, EFI Colorproof Laser combines three key proofing components into one easy-to-use solution—a true Adobe PostScript-RIP, integrated ICC color management, and production and nesting tools. Used in conjunction with the HP 9500 printer, Colorproof Laser produces accurate color representations of output on a press quickly and easily. It is an ideal solution for producing small print runs at an economical price. “We are excited to be part of a new generation of innovative color laser printer products coming from HP," said Thorsten Breiding, Vice President and General Manager of EFI Proofing Solutions. “The HP Color LaserJet 9500 combined with EFI's proofing technology provides users with a cost-effective solution for producing high-quality, short run printing and proofing jobs with ease and precision." EFI Colorproof Laser runs under Microsoft Windows and offers all network users up to 15 input channels that can be individually configured for quality, color simulation and output media. Files can be printed directly on virtual PostScript printers or placed into hot folders to automate the proofing process. Also available to support the HP 9500 is EFI Remoteproof, a complimentary quality assurance tool that enables users to not only transfer files with the settings and profiles needed to create proofs at remote locations, but to also numerically verify the accuracy of those proofs. EFI proofing solutions are available now for the HP Color LaserJet 9500 from EFI certified dealers and distributors.
