EFI to Make Large-format Printing, Fiery and MIS Product Introductions
CHICAGO—June 16, 2009—With an eye on helping its customers survive the economic downturn and build a more profitable business model, at Print 09 EFI (NASDAQ: EFII) plans to feature new modules for its suite of print MIS software systems, enhancements to its VUTEk® and Rastek™ superwide and wide-format printer lines, and its new Fiery Command Workstation® 5 centralized job management system. EFI will demonstrate how its newest printers are designed to increase productivity while delivering the highest photorealistic color, thus extending market reach. On the tradeshow floor, EFI workflow solutions, including Print MIS, Web-to-print and Fiery® solutions, will demonstrate that printer providers can reduce waste, eliminate errors and be even more productive with their current workforce.
“The complete EFI showcase of digital printing technologies that will be shown at Print 09 delivers on our steadfast commitment to bring industry-leading innovations to the market to help our customers expand their offerings and run their operations more efficiently,” said EFI CEO, Guy Gecht.
EFI print management applications (Pace, Monarch, PrintSmith™) were designed to respond to the needs of specific market segments—ranging from small quick printers, large, multi-location commercial and publication shops, online, sign and packaging shops as well as in-plant operations. At Print 09, EFI will demonstrate enhanced MIS/JDF workflow integration and launch EFI Web Control Center, a web-based color management and workflow solution. EFI Web Control Center combines centralized color management to ensure accurate color reproduction with the ability to remotely proof and print through geographically dispersed printing centers.
EFI will demonstrate its new VUTEk GS super-wide systems, which were designed to extend market reach. With faster speeds and higher quality the GS5000r moves super-wide UV printing from limited outdoor applications (billboards, banners and wraps) to event and transit signage, informational signage and adds indoor applications such as point-of-purchase (POP) tradeshow displays and wall decorations. The GS3200 goes even further to extend indoor applications to include fine art, photography, high-definition or color-critical POP displays. The GS2000, like its GS counterparts, prints 8 colors, plus white, at super-fast speeds.
