New Xerox Presses Meet Increased Demand for High-Quality Digital Color
ROCHESTER, NY—Aug. 3, 2009—Xerox Corp. (NYSE: XRX) digital production color devices account for more than 50 percent of the total worldwide page volume1 – and now print providers have another option for their digital printing needs with the launch of the Xerox DocuColor® 7002/8002 Digital Presses.
Consistent high image quality and maximum productivity are powerful benefits of these new digital presses – ideal for producing promotional materials, collateral, direct marketing and photo publishing applications. Key features to the DocuColor 7002/8002 presses include:
• new low gloss toner, which produces a smooth matte finish.
• automated color workflow, giving print providers higher levels of productivity.
• in-line spectrophotometer, which measures test patches that provide data on the press’ performance to Xerox’s Automated Color Quality Suite (ACQS). ACQS automates previous manual tasks such as system calibration and spot color matching.
• expanded in-line finishing options including the GBC® eBinder 200, Xerox Tape Binder, Horizon ColorWorks and ColorWorks Pro Document Finisher.
The in-line spectrophotometer and ACQS are now standard with every press and are compatible with all digital front ends, including EFI, Creo® and the Xerox FreeFlow® Print Server. The choice of servers, low gloss toner and full ACQS capabilities make the DocuColor 7002/8002 the strongest product offering in its class.
King’s College, located in Wilkes-Barre, Pa., will be the first to install this new technology when a DocuColor 7002 arrives on campus later this month.
“One of our largest and most expensive print runs is our annual course catalog, which is used for various recruiting events throughout the year,” said Brian Blight, art director, King’s College. “With the DocuColor 7002, we will cut production costs considerably and print multiple shorter runs throughout the year – giving us the ability to update stats and course descriptions that will aid in recruitment.”
DocuColor’s traditional and third-party finishing alternatives are available on the new presses along with the following in-line finishing options:
