OKI Data Americas announces a new category of digital printing technology with the introduction of its Multimedia Production Platform – a series of production-quality A3 color devices with innovative features and functionality that will revolutionize the office and commercial printing industries, alike.
These new devices go far beyond the capabilities of traditional digital color printers, adding game-changing media handling that includes transparent media, magnets, banners and heavyweight cardstock – all within a single, compact unit. By defining this new space within the market, OKI further establishes itself as a leader in LED digital printing innovation. Within the Multimedia Production Platform is the innovative new C900 Series.
This latest series of groundbreaking digital color products includes three new A3 models – one of which features an industry-first LED five station toner configuration that supports white or clear spot color printing capabilities. All were developed to meet a wide range of graphic arts and commercial printing needs. “OKI is excited to announce its pioneering new Multimedia Production Platform. We are re-defining LED digital color printing by introducing a new category of devices that can handle a truly impressive range of media,” said Carl Taylor, Vice President of Marketing for OKI Data Americas. “A key to the enhanced performance of these new OKI devices is our proprietary Single Pass Color™ technology which allows for faster print speeds, superior color resolution and registration, and expanded media handling capabilities.”
One of the benefits of OKI’s new Multimedia Production Platform is the users’ ability to expand input and output capabilities with the addition of an optional EFI Fiery XF server, feeders, stackers and other supplemental hardware for use with certain devices. The new C900 Series units from OKI includes the C911dn, C931dn, and C941dn, offering best in class high-definition color print quality, high volume productivity and diverse media handling abilities at a low running cost. Features include print speeds of up to 50 pages per minute1 and toner yields of up to 38,000 pages, delivering fast, reliable and cost-effective output.
Handling a recommended monthly print volume of 25,000 pages, the C900 Series meets the needs of large, demanding workgroups. These new printers further underscore OKI’s technological leadership and ability to deliver innovative, high functioning and high quality printing solutions to an evolving marketplace. The revolutionary new C941dn LED digital color printer features a five station toner configuration with cyan, magenta, yellow and black, plus white or clear in the fifth position; this provides an expansive new world of printing capabilities and revenue-generating opportunities. In fact, the C941dn from OKI is the first LED printer in its class to offer white or clear spot color printing and other productivity-enhancing capabilities, and is available with an EFI Fiery XF server.
Similarly, the C931dn digital color printer supports an optional EFI Fiery XF server. Designed for large workgroups and office use, the C931dn offers full color, high resolution printing capabilities, and handles a wide range of media for maximum output flexibility at a low total cost of ownership (TCO). In fact, the TCO for the C931dn is 25 percent lower versus comparable models. The C911dn offers improved speed, print quality and performance over its predecessor. As with all C900 Series models, the C911dn features a more robust chassis, improved user interface featuring a high resolution color LCD display, and higher capacity toners for a low cost per page.
Taylor continued, “These new production-grade printers from OKI bring on-demand color printing capabilities in-house, and are ideal for companies that require high-quality output, media handling flexibility, and color consistency.” OKI products are built on a history rich in leadership and innovation, originating with its parent company, OKI Data Corporation. Most of OKI’s color printing solutions feature Single Pass Color as well as proprietary digital LED and HD Color technologies. These technologies allow OKI Data Americas to manufacture products that require fewer moving parts for increased reliability, greater media handling versatility and outstanding color output quality.
