New Fiery NX platform
The new Xerox EX C60/C70 Print Server is the first worldwide to utilize the new Fiery NX Pro hardware platform previewed at drupa 2016. The new NX Pro server features a sleek, modern design and updated hardware. In addition, the newest-version EX C60/C70 Print Server on the NX Pro platform delivers a 33% performance increase compared to its predecessor.
Operators can use new Fiery QuickTouch™ software through a built-in 7-inch touchscreen display to get faster views of job status information and easily perform certain device management functions. With just a tap, the touchscreen display gives operators easy access to intuitive system installation, backup and restore functions as well as to system diagnostics information. Plus, users can driven even greater efficiencies by integrating their Fiery Driven™ printer and digital production data into their broader management operations thanks to the print server's seamless connectivity with productivity-enhancing EFI MIS platforms like the EFI Quick Print Suite.
The NX Pro server is housed in the new EFI Fiery NX Station GL, a cutting-edge, ergonomic work environment for customers who need a highly efficient and comfortable workspace. The NX Station GL's compact design boasts a 20% smaller footprint than previous Fiery workstations, and other features such as a large work area, wireless keyboard and mouse, sliding server shelf, and storage compartments help improve operator productivity.
