EFI (http://www.efi.com) and Xerox Corp. is shipping the Fiery Network Controller for the Xerox WorkCentre 7700 series of color multifunction printers (MFPs) for office environments. Fiery controllers are easily deployed in Mac and Windows environments and support all industry standard networking protocols.
The WorkCentre 7700 Series MFPs are one of the first to support Fiery VUE, the desktop application that makes publishing of professional-looking finished documents fast and simple for all office workers, according to Leah Quesada, vice president of office marketing, Xerox.
With speeds up to 50 pages per minute (ppm) in color and up to 75 ppm in black and white, the WorkCentre 7700 Series handle everything from general office documents to high-volume color print jobs. These MFPs also manage multiple printing, copying, scanning and faxing tasks simultaneously.
Targeted at enterprise customers across all departments, the recently launched Fiery VUE desktop application allows users to interact with a document on-screen in 3D to sculpt and then preview exactly how the finished document will look when printed. Plus, there's the optional Fiery Color Profiler Suite with integrated color management. Office users looking for “out-of the-box” color can rely on Fiery ColorWise color management tools, while the Spot-On option ensures the best match of Pantone colors and streamlines workflow with standardized corporate color palettes, says Quesada.
The Fiery controller’s Smart RIP technology is designed to improve performance by allowing one page to be printed while subsequent pages are being processed. To speed up printing processes users have the option to let Fiery Hot Folders and Virtual Printers automate the print submission process, saving time when printing repetitive types of jobs.
