OKI Data rolls out two printer series, the C610 and the C711, which offer rapid print speeds and a compact form factor.
OKI Data Americas, which markets its products under the OKI Printing
Solutions brand, announces the addition of two series of digital color
printers designed for medium and large workgroups with the launch of
the C610 Series and the C711 Series. Both series offer HD
(high-definition) Color Technology and come in four configurations that
deliver a compact footprint of just 17.1-inch by 21.5-inch by 13.4-inch
and print speeds up to 32 ppm color and 34 ppm mono.
Featuring a 400-sheet standard paper capacity (which is expandable to
1,460 with optional second and third paper trays), the C610 Series is
also provides flexibility to handle paper weights to 250 gsm. Powered
by Single Pass Color Digital technology and 1200 x 600 dpi resolution,
the C610 Series provides users with output on a variety of media from
3-inch by 5-inch cards to 8.5-inch by 52-inch banner-size sheets. The
C117 series color printer offers professional media flexibility with
52-inch banner capabilities, up to 1,690 paper capacity and 100,000
page monthly duty cycle.
Users can control color printing on both series through a no-charge
utility called Color Access Policy Manager (CAPM) from OKI Printing
Solutions. CAPM allows for the control, monitoring and tracking of
color by defining who can print and what gets printed. Access levels
can be assigned by user name, PC/Server name, application, file name
and even Website address. C610 Series configuration pricing runs from
the standard version at $699 up to an adavanced capability version
offering SD card reading for $1,149. C117 Series printers run from
$1,099 to $1,449. All models can be purchased through OKI Data
America's authorized partners. The company also offers live, toll-free
technical support 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year,
with agents based in North America.
"OKI Data Americas understands and anticipates the needs of today's SMB
market and medium to large workgroup users, who are the inspiration for
our new C610 Series and C711 Series line of printers," said Mike
Garofola, senior marketing manager of color products for OKI Data
Americas. "Not only do both of these feature-rich printer series
provide professional quality and functionality, they also include color
quality control with Color Swatch and Color Correct, which allows users
to easily adjust and match custom colors. Both products are compact in
size, yet perform robust applications desired by their targeted end
user market segment."
