Xerox "Widens" Line of Printers; New Compact Systems Big on Features

Black-and-white wide format devices offer colour scanning, sharp image quality, copying and printing

TORONTO, Nov. 10 /CNW/ - Architectural, engineering and construction companies, manufacturing firms and commercial print shops have an affordable new option for their black-and-white technical documents. Xerox Canada's Wide Format 6604(R) and 6605(R) Solutions mark the eighth and ninth wide format products the company has unveiled in the last two years.

The compact new systems integrate 600 x 600 dpi copying, scanning and printing with an easy-to-use interface to ensure crisp, accurate image quality on jobs such as emergency services maps, electrical wiring diagrams or construction plans. An on-board colour scanner allows for hard copy documents to be scanned to electronic files or can copy existing prints of varying sizes, including the most common wide-format size drawings, E and A0 documents.

The 6604 and 6605 Solutions can produce up to four and five D or A1 size images per minute, respectively. Users can select a two-roll paper option for greater printing capacity. The 15-inch colour touch screen and intuitive user interface make them easy to operate, even for users that don't have familiarity with wide format printers.

"What sets these products apart are the simple graphical user interface, high-quality output and modular approach, which make it easy for customers to add features and capacity as needs change," said Tim Greene, director of wide-format and jetting technologies at InfoTrends, a leading market research and consulting firm in the digital imaging and document solutions industry.

The printers are equipped with the FreeFlow(R) Accxes(R) Print Server - allowing customers to preview scans and simultaneously print, copy and scan-to-file with select options. Other new features include:

    -   Closed loop colour calibration - improves the colour matching between
        the scanner and printer to ensure the colour accuracy of colour
        copies made.
    -   Queue management - allows greater job control based on the needs of
        the customer.
    -   Addition of a compact Gera Butterfly folder - an in-line device that
        automates the folding process while the solution prints and scans.


The Xerox 6604 and 6605 Solutions will be available worldwide for order and installation in November 2009.
