Dusseldorf, Germany, drupa 2012 - May 4, 2012 - EFI™ (Nasdaq: EFII), a world leader in customer-focused digital printing innovation, today announced that the Fiery© wide-format production RIP will be available for the new KIP C7800 Production Print System. This product combination provides customers with blazing speed and exceptional quality while being cost-effective in the short-run poster production market.

"This new relationship between KIP and EFI will strengthen the KIP C7800 position in the poster production environment, while giving customers the best-performing RIP available, and is the first of several planned product collaborations," said Stefan Spiegel, general manager of Fiery production and proofing solutions at EFI. "Fiery is leading the industry with solutions from digital production print to superwide production printing."

"KIP provides a unique production print device that is able to bridge the gap between slower wide format inkjet devices and smaller format high-speed, toner-based digital production devices, and we're pleased to pair the KIP C7800 with the Fiery wide format production system," said Wil Reimer, national technical manager at KIP. "Together with EFI, we now have a strong solution for a market that has traditionally been dominated by inkjet devices."

EFI Fiery takes color quality and productivity for large to superwide format printers to a new level with open ICC technology while supporting advanced color and production tools. The fast, high-performance RIP works with most major aqueous, solvent, eco-solvent and UV printers. It maximizes a customer's investment by reducing production times, unifying production devices and delivering accurate color on every job.

The LED-based KIP C7800 wide-format color production print system offers the only color toner-based system in the wide format market, combined with powerful print control capabilities and versatile production advantages, making high-quality, wide-format printing both fast and cost-effective.
