OKI Announces Availability of the Latest EFI Fiery C9 Server for Its C900 Series
Tuesday, March 8, 2016
OKI Data Americas has announced availability of the latest EFI Fiery C9 Server exclusively for use with its C900 Series of professional printing devices. Among many benefits, the C9 Server optimizes the five-color and envelope printing functionality of the C931/C941/C942 Series devices, further increasing output quality, productivity and profitability. Built upon EFI's Fiery FS150 Pro system, the C9 Server offers the most popular Fiery features including Command WorkStation and Spot-On to enhance production capabilities and improve the operational efficiencies of the C931/C941/C942 printers and DP models.
The new user-friendly C9 Server allows users to submit, manipulate and reprint jobs remotely from Mac OS and Microsoft Windows clients or from their desktop. Users can visually confirm document content and adjust images, plus customize and substitute spot colors. The C9 Server helps to increase efficiency and reduce errors with server-based workflows, such as Hot Folders, for repeatable results that are easy to set up and use throughout the print facility.
Highlights of the C9 Server with Command WorkStation include the Fiery color management system, which combines industry standards — such as CMYK press emulations, RGB source conversions and PANTONE libraries — with the flexibility of an open architecture, enabling users to customize specific color matching needs. Image Enhance Visual Editor allows for quick adjustment of images within print jobs, correcting common color issues and providing a preview of the adjustment's effect on the image for easy fine tuning. In addition, Spot-On enables adjusting and managing spot colors used as critical "must-match" colors.OKI Data's professional series devices supported by the new C9 Server include:
"OKI Data Americas is pleased to offer the latest EFI Fiery C9 Server to complement our expanding line of professional series digital color printers for the graphic arts and specialty printing markets," said Hiroyuki Fukushima, vice president of office solutions product marketing, OKI Data Americas. "Together with our revolutionary C900 Series devices, this new Fiery C9 Server provides even greater competitive advantages and enhancements to create professional-quality output — whether in-house or within the print-for-pay arena."
