For marketers, full-color transaction documents and direct mail gain greater attention and contribute to a more polished, professional image at affordable cost. For end users, full-color documents like statements and marketing offers can be more interesting and informative to read. As full-color digital adoption ramps up, Océ continuous feed solutions have emerged among the top choices for reliable, versatile quality output. Delivering high productivity in combination with lower running costs, the Océ JetStream® family and Océ ColorStream® 10000 Flex printing system enable profitable production of highly individualized, high-impact communications.</p> <p><strong>The broadest continuous feed portfolio available</strong> <br />The Océ ColorStream 10000 Flex is the fastest toner-based color-capable continuous feed printer on the market, with up to 1,425 b/w and 168 full-color images per minute. This highly flexible production system gives all the advantages of full-color, but prints b/w at b/w prices and speeds. The Océ JetStream inkjet family consists of three distinct product lines based on common technology components such as the Océ DigiDot® drop-on-demand inkjet imaging technology and the SRA MP controller. The family ranges from 500 to 3,030 A4/min in full color and offers 20.5&quot; and 30&quot; web width. The Océ JetStream family also incorporates inkjet MICR.. The Océ VarioStream® 7000/8000 line is the industry’s broadest b/w continuous feed family. It offers a wide range of speeds (180 to 1,414 A4/min), while also providing a full range of features such as CustomTone, MICR and simplex, duplex and triplex configurations.</p> <p>The Océ VarioStream 7100 is Océ’s latest flash-fusing machine in the low to mid volume continuous feed segment. This entry level printer addresses corporate and commercial environments with monochrome simplex volumes of transaction, direct mail, product-flanking applications and applications on special media such as labels and service cards.</p> <p><strong>Leadership in the world of digital newspapers</strong> <br />During the Océ Home of Color IV, a special Newspaper Forum features the Océ JetStream technology. Publishers today benefit from Océ’s unique role in making digital newspapers a reality. Print providers can seize opportunities in short and medium runs, micro-zoning, and personalization services. Specialized newspaper contract printers can complement offset production with digital technology. Newspaper distributors can optimize logistic systems by putting production close to demand.</p> <p>The innovative, full-color Océ JetStream inkjet family pairs with integrated finishing from leading-edge partners to push the boundaries of what digital color can do for digital newspaper production.</p> <p>For more information about the Océ Home of Color event, visit <a href="http://homeofcolor.oce.com/home-of-color.asp">http://homeofcolor.oce.com... <p>This article was originally posted on <a href="http://www.bertl.com/web/PORTAL_NEWS;jsessionid=69FF7254C7B4B9140FB38C89...
