In conjunction with the Malaysia Arts Fair 2017, OKI has introduced its latest range of professional digital arts printers from the Pro9000 series. The new models use innovative technology that overturn conventional printing processes, with the aim to create new opportunities in terms of on-demand revenue streams for businesses.
Design for light production and printing of graphics art, the Pro9000 have low upfront cost but excellent print quality. In addition, they have faster time-to-market and lower cost-per-page (CPP), all factors that are appealing to small creative or print businesses. Key features of the printer series include high-resolutions of up to 1,200 x 1,200 dpi, print speeds that can reach 50ppm and the wide variety in compatible media. These make it ideal choices for those that need on-demand graphic arts printing in smaller volumes.
Goh Yin Hwang, who is Country Manager of OKI Malaysia, was present at the fair to talk to clients and the media. “Comprising vibrant four and five-colour technology and innovative printing processes, the new Pro9000 series from OKI offers local print companies and creative businesses the flexibility to take creative printing to a whole level while also improving their own business performance,” he said.
The new printers of this series are the Pro9431, Pro9541 and Pro9542 colour printers, all of which are compatible with EFI Fiery XF suite for advanced colour management. Other technologies used are such as high-definition CMYK printing using new digital LED technology and ProQ Multi-level technology, as well as an additional white or gloss colour for the Pro9541 in particular. The Pro9542 also has its own unique selling point, as it is able to deliver high density white-under printing in one go.
In regards to the printers’ benefits, Goh also elaborated a bit by explaining that the objective is to present creative or commercial businesses with new avenues of business. “Local creative agencies and printing companies also have the option to commit to a fixed cost and number of prints per month, ensuring predictable pricing and controllable monthly outgoings, with no unexpected costs,” he added.
