Xerox Announces Five New Color Systems and $53M in Contracts
PHILADELPHIA -- Xerox
Corporation has launched a cadre of digital color printers, presses and copiers
and announced $53 million in new document management services contracts.
Xerox's color line has been expanded with five additional systems, including a new mid-level digital production color press and color printers, digital copiers and multifunction products aimed at offices small to large.
For office environments, Xerox is launching the WorkCentre 7655, WorkCentre 7665 and WorkCentre 7132 color multifunction products. The WorkCentre systems are the first digital color multifunction systems equipped with Xerox Standard Accounting software, which makes it easy for people to monitor, track and manage color prints, copies, faxes and scans. These products help corporate offices, schools, government agencies and other organizations better manage color printing costs.
The new Phaser 7760 tabloid color laser printer prints up to 35 ppm in color and has an industry-leading black-and-white speed of 45 ppm compared to other products in its class. It features new color management tools and enhanced image quality that allow design professionals to create vibrant, full-color documents such as newsletters, brochures and pre-press proofs.
Software and Business Development
Xerox announced a number of software offerings and business development tools that help customers simplify work processes and boost performance.
Xerox and Electronics for Imaging introduced the EFI Splash RPX-i, new Mac-based software that makes it easier to control color and improve printing efficiency for the successful Xerox DocuColor 240/250 Digital Printer/Copier.
New Xerox-developed software in the professional printing arena allows print providers to quickly gain copyright clearance and, in turn, produce printed and copied papers, textbooks and other documents without violating copyright laws.
Xerox is expanding the professional printing industry’s largest portfolio of business development tools, the ProfitAccelerator Digital Business Resources, with three additional kits.
In the office, Xerox unveiled a new version of Xerox FreeFlow SMARTsend software that includes TrueMatch, an advanced search capability with linguistic technology developed at Xerox’s European research center in Grenoble, France. It works much like an Internet search engine that automates key word searches and filters relevant information. This capability enables workers to use a multifunction system to easily find an electronic copy of a paper document that has been scanned into a repository. The most recent versions of sales brochures and price sheets can now be more easily retrieved and printed on demand in retail stores, corporate offices and other environments.
Xerox also is reinforcing its support of industry standards through a partnership with Microsoft, creating advanced scanning and printing capabilities for Xerox office multifunction systems to support Microsoft’s XML Paper Specification (XPS) technology. XPS is built into Windows Vista, the next generation of the Windows Operating System. This will enable documents to be printed with even richer graphics and more consistent quality.
