DUSSELDORF, Germany, March 1, 2016 – According to InfoTrends, production colour inkjet print will account for 57 per cent of the total production digital colour page volume by 20191. To help print providers capitalise on inkjet’s growing momentum, Xerox today announced it will launch two new inkjet presses, the Xerox Brenva™ HD Production Inkjet Press and the Xerox Trivor™ 2400 Inkjet Press, at drupa 2016, May 31 – June 10 in Düsseldorf, Germany.
The presses are the first in an innovative new series of inkjet offerings to come from Xerox; Brenva HD to the cut-sheet inkjet market, driven by the Xerox FreeFlow® Print Server, and Trivor 2400 with the Xerox IJ Print Server powered by Fiery® to the continuous feed inkjet market. Each will enable print providers to accelerate growth and drive the production of more high-value applications such as direct mail, transactional, books and catalogues.
“We are focused on expanding our inkjet portfolio with more choices and greater capabilities for print providers to grow their businesses,” said Robert Stabler, senior vice president and general manager, Global Graphic Communications Business Group, Xerox. “With the addition of Brenva HD and Trivor 2400, we’re making inkjet more accessible and affordable to a larger number of print providers.”
Carving out a new space in the cut-sheet inkjet market
Xerox is targeting the space – dubbed by InfoTrends as the Zone of Disruption – that sits below the gap between high-end toner and low-end inkjet presses with Brenva HD. The new press combines the cost effectiveness of inkjet with the flexibilities of cut-sheet to address the needs of print providers in the light direct mail, transactional and book markets. Incorporating many of the reliable paper-path components of the award-winning Xerox iGen®, Brenva HD offers best-in-class automation and reliability features to maximise press productivity including:
- An inline spectrophotometer to assist with calibration and profiling;
- Object-oriented colour management to distinguish text, graphics and images and optimises the image quality of each accordingly;
- K-only mode so it will run as a cost effective monochrome press.
Flexible for today, scalable for tomorrow
The Xerox Trivor 2400 Inkjet Press provides printers with a platform built to grow as business demands increase with the same machine scaling up for more speed, volume and solutions. The Trivor 2400 press combines high performance and increased speed (551 feet/168 metres per minute in colour; 656 feet/200 metres per minute in monochrome) in a small footprint. The press will allow printers to move into shorter-run catalogues, magazines and colour books, giving customers more flexibility. Engineered-in automation ensures superb, reliable image quality including inline density optimisation, clear pixel technology, and missing jet detection and correction.
A new print server developed in partnership with EFI®, the Xerox IJ Print Server powered by Fiery, will handle multiple data streams for various application types. The IJ Print Server will simplify integration, provide comprehensive colour management and integrate seamlessly with customers’ workflows.
- Availability for the Xerox Trivor 2400 Inkjet Press with the Xerox IJ Print Server powered by Fiery will be revealed at drupa.
- The Xerox Brenva HD Production Inkjet Press will be available in Europe in May 2016 and in North America in September 2016. Shipments will begin in June 2016.
Brenva HD and Trivor 2400 with the IJ Print Server powered by Fiery will be on display at drupa 2016, Hall 8B A62, Messe Düsseldorf. With a theme “Let the Work Flow,” the Xerox stand at drupa will showcase how providers can work better by becoming more automated, integrated and productive in their operations.
