Fuji Xerox Australia is a gold sponsor of the upcoming DiGiT expo and conference, 3-5 October, Darling Harbour, Sydney.
As well as taking a stand at the exhibition, showcasing Fuji Xerox’s digital print and proofing solutions for print, prepress and design, FXA will also provide conference print services throughout the show.

“We’re delighted to be supporting this year’s DiGiT expo and conference,” said Brett Maisman, FXA’s Industry Marketing
Manager, Graphic Arts, who will be presenting a digital print seminar as part of the expo’s Print and Prepress Summit. “During my presentation, I’ll explore the options Fuji Xerox digital print technology presents to the design and prepress communities, from proofing to short-run and variable information marketing tools.”

Visitors to the Fuji Xerox stand will see the award-winning DocuColor 1250 digital colour press, capable of operating as both proofing device and short-run printer.

“The DocuColor 1250 has proved extremely popular with the design and prepress community,” said Maishman. “In the past, other entry level solutions, including colour laser devices, have not offered the quality, media flexibility or productivity required to meet the demands of this market. The DocuColor 1250, however, allows affordable, on demand quality colour, as well as providing the capability to function as a mid volume black and white printer or copier.”

The Xerox DocuColor 1250 uses an EFI Fiery XP12 RIP to deliver networked quality
colour. An easy-to-use front-end, the XP12 is designed for PostScript processing and
boasts a Pentium III processor to drive the DocuColor 1250 at its rated speed. The
ColorWise 2.0 colour management system with built-in intelligence means anyone, from colour expert to novice, can achieve professional results.

“RGB and CMYK data is handled separately, so file formats can be easily mixed on one page,” explained Maishman. “There is also simulation to industry standards, which allows the toners in the DocuColor 1250 to mimic the hue and density of inks in offset presses. Another colour benefit is Pantone matching – an application which recognises Pantone names in print jobs.”

Also on show at DiGiT, the Fuji Xerox Xpress Card solution, creating personalised i.d cards on demand, and a display of the stocks and substrates available to designers for use in Xerox digital print applications.
