OKI Data Americas Announces the Latest EFI Fiery C9 Server for its C900 Series of Digital Production Printers3 Mar, 2016
MOUNT LAUREL, N.J., March 2, 2016...OKI Data Americas announces availability of the latest EFI® Fiery® C9 Server exclusively for use with its C900 Series of professional printing devices. Among many benefits, the C9 Server optimizes the five-color and envelope printing functionality of the C931/C941/C942 Series devices1, further increasing output quality, productivity and profitability. Built upon EFI’s robust Fiery FS150 Pro system, the C9 Server offers the most popular Fiery features including Command WorkStation and Spot-On™ to enhance production capabilities and improve the operational efficiencies of the C931/C941/C942 Printers and DP models.
The new user-friendly C9 Server allows users to submit, manipulate and reprint jobs remotely from Mac® OS and Microsoft® Windows® clients or from their desktop. Users can visually confirm document content and adjust images, plus customize and substitute spot colors. The C9 Server helps to increase efficiency and reduce errors with server-based workflows, such as Hot Folders, for repeatable results that are easy to setup and use throughout the print facility.
Highlights of the C9 Server with Command WorkStation include the Fiery color management system, which combines industry standards – such as CMYK press emulations, RGB source conversions and PANTONE® libraries – with the flexibility of an open architecture, enabling users to customize specific color matching needs. Image Enhance Visual Editor allows for quick adjustment of images within print jobs, correcting common color issues and providing a preview of the adjustment’s effect on the image for easy fine-tuning. In addition, Spot-On enables adjusting and managing spot colors used as critical “must-match” colors.
OKI Data’s professional series devices supported by the new C9 Server include:
C942 – OKI Data’s cutting-edge five-color digital A3/tabloid device with white toner which allows users to print vibrant color-on-color output quickly and in a single pass.
