Discovering What You Can ‘Do More With More’
Headlining the impressive lineup of groundbreaking innovations was the Versant™ 2100 Press, a versatile solution for boosting productivity and enhancing versatility for all digital businesses. Catering to the needs of print professionals, the new digital full-colour press is perfect for the entry-level production colour market as it is capable of printing up to 100 prints per minute (ppm). The Versant™ 2100 Press strengthens Fuji Xerox’s production colour portfolio with a new technology platform built for graphic communications specialists in the commercial print, quick print and in-plant market segments. The press is ideal for delivering values now demanded by print buyers in today’s fast-paced world of digital media. The 100-ppm press carries, in its compact body, high-end functions selected from an upper class model targeting the professional printing market.
The Versant™ 2100 Press features an inline, integrated Full Width Array and other functions, which helps users to automate colour control, create image-to-media alignment profiles and deliver brand-managed colour in less time with less waste; and a Production Accurate Registration technology that helps maintain tight registration throughout the press from page-to-page and run-to-run.
More Image Quality
A first in the industry, Fuji Xerox’s new Ultra HD Resolution in the Versant™ 2100 Press helps printing professionals produce smooth sweeps and gradients, sharp images, graphics and text. Applications are rendered at 1200 x 1200 dpi at up to 10 bits, which is equivalent to 300 percent more pixels and colour precision rendered than the current 600 x 600 dpi market standard. Delivering brilliant and vibrant images with low gloss, low melt Emulsion Aggregation (EA) Dry Ink, the press offers colour consistency across multiple printers and sites.
Users of the Versant™ 2100 Press can choose from three controller options: the EX2100 and EX-P 2100 Print Server, Powered by Fiery, and the Fuji Xerox FreeFlow® Print Server to tailor the press to their production needs. Supporting an array of substrates including linen, polyester, vinyl magnet and specialty stocks, the Versant™ 2100 Press provides print businesses more flexibility to help their customers achieve desired print outcomes.
Streamlining manufacturing processes with more exciting opportunities and less unnecessary costs, the Fuji Xerox FreeFlow Core workflow solutions further boosts productivity levels of the Versant™ 2100 Press. The press can also be integrated with additional colour management technologies designed and refined to deliver even more outstanding colour and more saleable output.
Providing Tomorrow’s Support Today
To enable companies to reach out more efficiently to their target markets with customised messages, Fuji Xerox provides users with an option of employing the 1:1 Experience service offering. In addition to providing benefits of greater reliability, uptime and productivity; the Production Remote Services (PRS) uses predictive analysis to accurately forecast when problems will occur or when supplies need replacement. Compared to the traditional reactive and proactive service, where customer support is made available after notification, Fuji Xerox now offers this prognostic production remote service to troubleshoot and plan the service beforehand. The PRS is an integral part of the latest innovative Fuji Xerox technologies supporting Versant™ 2100 Press.
