Oki Data Americas, which markets its products under the OKI(R) Printing Solutions brand, today announced the availability of the C8800 Series digital color printers, high performance color printers that produce a wide range of media up to 11x17 from a compact desktop design. Priced significantly lower than competitive models(1), the C8800 Series establishes a new benchmark in value for wide-format color printing.

Before the C8800, the decision for a business owner to invest in a tabloid color printer required a $3,000-plus investment in a device that needed its own cubicle. We have eliminated the price and size barriers with the C8800 Series, giving businesses of all sizes access to powerful performance and media versatility straight from their desktop.

    "The C8800 Series is a pivotal game-changer in the printing marketplace," said Mike Garofola, Senior Marketing Manager, Color Printers and MFPs, Oki Data Americas. "Before the C8800, the decision for a business owner to invest in a tabloid color printer required a $3,000-plus investment in a device that needed its own cubicle. We have eliminated the price and size barriers with the C8800 Series, giving businesses of all sizes access to powerful performance and media versatility straight from their desktop."

With a footprint up to 38% smaller than comparable tabloid printers(2), the C8800 will dramatically reduce the cost, complexity and space requirements for wide-format printing. The key standard features of the C8800 Series include:

Size/Value

-- Smallest, most compact footprint of wide-format printers in its class(3), delivering bigger and more powerful printed documents on-demand from users' desktops.

-- A groundbreaking price point for wide-format printers with a low cost-per-page, empowering businesses to enhance their printing capabilities

Media Flexibility

-- Greater media control and flexibility, including color tabloid (11" x 17") and unique banner (11" x 47.25") capability, allowing users to produce a variety of media in house, including marketing collateral and specialized output such as signage, charts, architectural renderings or engineering design documents.

Performance

-- Fast print speeds of 26 ppm in color and 32 ppm(4) in black-and-white that improve office productivity and optimize output performance.

-- HD Color technology, combining microfine toner and multilevel LED heads and 1200 x 600 dpi resolution, ensuring photo-like quality on everyday office paper, and delivering consistent quality and reliability in printed documents.

-- Ability to print direct from PDF files, without the need for source applications, delivering increased office efficiency.
