Oki Data Americas (http://www.okidata.com ), which markets its products under the OKI Printing Solutions brand, has added two new series of digital color printers designed for medium and large workgroups with the launch of the C610 Series and the C711 Series. Pricing ranges from US$699 to $1,449.

Offering HD (high-definition) Color Technology, both the C610 Series and C711 Series allow users to produce high-quality, color documents in-house, reducing lead/turn-around time, cost and potential waste associated with outsourcing, according to Mike Garofola Sr. of OKI Data Americas.
The C610 Series from OKI Printing Solutions comes in four configurations that deliver a footprint of 17.1 x 21.5 x 13.4 inches and print speeds up to 32 ppm color and 34 ppm mono. With a monthly duty cycle of 75,000 pages, it’s designed for small-to-medium sized businesses and medium workgroups.

The C610 Series features a 400-sheet standard paper capacity (which is expandable to 1,460 with optional second and third paper trays) and can handle paper weights to 250 gsm. Powered by Single Pass Color Digital technology and 1200 x 600 dpi resolution, the C610 Series provides r output on a variety of media from 3 x 5 inch cards to 8.5 x 52 inch banner-size sheets.

Users can control color printing on both series through a no-charge utility called Color Access Policy Manager (CAPM) from OKI Printing Solutions. CAPM allows for the control, monitoring and tracking of color by defining who can print and what gets printed, making color printing on these devices even more cost effective. Access levels can be assigned by user name, PC/Server name, application, file name and even web site address.
