Canon U.S.A., Inc. (Melville, NY) has announced the Océ VarioPrint i-series+, which allows customers to print high-quality graphic arts applications with a large color gamut on a wide range of standard offset coated media.

A statement released by Canon U.S.A. states that "the VarioPrint i-series+ is a combination of engine technologies, firmware, and performance inks all tied together to provide commercial print quality on a broader range of coated media with enhanced workflows driving productivity and possible increased revenue opportunity."

Features include the following:

  • Expanded range of coated media for increased application possibilities, including matte, silk, and gloss coated papers with up to 110 pound cover weight.
  • Enhanced image quality utilizing new performance inks that, in combination with enhanced color management capabilities, results in an expanded color gamut. Improved output quality is achieved by an increase in the optical density, minimum Grey Component Replacement (GCR), and an increased CMYK Total Area Coverage. Image quality is further improved through the use of refresh lines, more advanced nozzle failure compensation, and the ability to import/export CMYK curves.
  • Increased throughput with simplex speed of up to 170 ipm (LTR) and increased maximum sheet length of 20 in., as well as the PRISMAsync media management, can accurately steer front-to-back registration.

The VarioPrint i-series+ will be available on Oct. 1. In addition, existing i-series customers can benefit from an optional field retrofit enabling them to take advantage of the enhanced performance and inks. Retrofits will be available starting in the first quarter of 2020. A Canon spokesperson said high volume PSPs are included in the target market for the Océ VarioPrint i-series+.
