Konica Minolta to demonstrate new KODAK CREO Servers at The Print Show

The Print Show 2016

Visitors to stand A20 at the Print Show will be able to see first-hand how KODAK CREO Servers help maximise the speed, quality and profit potential of digital presses.

The demonstrations of the IC-309m and IC-314 will highlight the unparalleled productivity through performance and automation.

Based on the industry leading Creo Server technology with advanced software and hardware, the new IC-314 enables customers to achieve outstanding results, streamlines operations, boosts quality levels and raises profitability.

Colour control is intuitive, yet powerful, providing consistent and accurate offset-quality output. With fast processing speeds, variable data publishing capabilities, transactional printing through native IPDS IS/3 solution and built-in connectivity to third-party applications, the new IC-314 delivers exceptional RIP performance, colour consistency and short turnaround times all of which are vital for production print environments.

“The latest products in our CREO Servers portfolio for Konica Minolta establish the importance of our ongoing collaboration and commitment to our customers and the print industry,” said Ari Shapiro, Worldwide Sales Director for Kodak Creo Servers. “The unique connectivity between our solutions drives the simplicity and quality control customers have come to expect from us as industry leaders. The connectivity between Creo controllers and Konica Minolta digital presses is ideal for our customers’ very diverse production environments – light or full, mono or colour, static or variable production.”

“Enhancing productivity and boosting profitability are key requirements in managing a successful printing operation,” said Christoph Kuhlisch, Group Product Manager at Konica Minolta. “The IC-314 Print Controller and the Konica Minolta Accurio Press C2060/C2070/C2070P are a powerful solution for our customers to help manage a high-performance business with unprecedented quality.”

CREO controllers can drive all of Konica Minolta’s mono presses, providing a common workflow and user interface for customers with both colour and monochrome printing requirements. With these new solutions, Konica Minolta is offering mono customers a powerful controller that can process full variable data at rated speed, has an option for IPDS support and an advanced feature set that is found mainly in colour controllers.
