"The new series is expected to lead its category in flexibility, quality and speed."

Target Markets: Direct Mail and Transaction Segments

The Oce JetStream systems offer lower operating costs, longer uptime and a wider range of paper choices than comparable products in its class. Service bureaus, graphic arts operations, letter shops, offset printers and other commercial and corporate printers can deliver full-color, variable data output with exceptional quality at high speeds and maximum productivity.

"Driven by personalized direct mail and TransPromo applications, increases in digital color output are projected to be in the billions of pages," said Noel Ward, Executive Editor, On Demand Journal. "To tap into that, data centers, service bureaus, and others in the direct mail and transactional segments are eager for full color and greater productivity. Ultra-high-speed inkjet printing is an excellent fit for these markets, and with its new JetStream family Oce has joined the color inkjet race at full throttle, providing versatility and workflow integration in addition to sheer speed."

Building on Oce Job Appropriate Color Strategy

Customers can use just the right amount of color based on the business objective of the job. Along with the Oce VarioStream® 9240 and Oce ColorStream(TM)10000 systems, the Oce JetStream family provides customers with a complete range of price, print quality, speed and duty cycles for their full-color requirements.

Groundbreaking Product Family Offers Choices

The groundbreaking series includes the Oce JetStream 1100 single-engine system and the Oce JetStream 2200 twin system. The Oce JetStream 1100 system delivers full-process color at 492 fpm. With a print width of 20.3" and paper width of 20.5", the Oce JetStream 1100 system can produce up to 1,074 letter impressions per minute in two-up simplex format. Exclusive to the Oce JetStream 1100 system is duplex printing with a single engine at up to 1,074 letter impressions per minute. By using a narrow web (9.5" or 242 mm max), the Oce JetStream 1100 system can print on one side, then turn the form and print on the back side on the same engine without a loss in speed or performance.

The two-engine Oce JetStream 2200 system prints full-process color at speeds up to 500 fpm. With a print width of 20.3" and paper width of 20.5", the Oce JetStream 2200 system can produce up to 2,148 letter impressions per minute in two-up duplex format. The Oce JetStream 1100 version is fully field-upgradeable to the Oce JetStream 2200 model.

The Secret of High-Speed, High-Quality Inkjet Output

The Oce JetStream family uses state-of-the-art Oce DigiDot(TM) piezoelectric drop-on-demand inkjet technology. It produces small, variable drop sizes resulting in higher quality images, smoother half-tones and stunning color with less ink and no waste. The variable drop sizes let users change the density of any application to best suit the job and media, resulting in page coverage superior to competitive systems. Oce DigiDot technology also promotes error-free post-processing, because the printing doesn't cause the paper to curl. The print heads are designed to minimize operator intervention for cleaning and maintenance. The print heads have the longest head life in the industry, resulting in even more productive, uninterrupted uptime.

Oce DigiDot technology also allows multi-level printing by varying drop sizes within the application for richer gray scales, contour-free gradients and finer details. This option brings higher quality to graphics applications. The combination of multi-level printing and the range of quality, speed and media options are unmatched in today's high-speed inkjet market.

New Controller for Maximum Processing Power

Powered by the new Oce SRA MP IPDS controller, Oce JetStream printers are designed for seamless integration with industry-standard workflows, as well as for the rigorous demands and data rates of high-speed full-color printing. As a result, companies will find it easier to embed new applications such as variable personalization and TransPromo documents into existing IPDS workflows and document processes. With powerful Oce PRISMA(TM) workflow software and connectivity to other proven front-end products, the Oce JetStream system performs in any environment without changing the existing workflow. Drawing on more than 15 years invested in high speed AFP/IPDS controller development and the Oce charter membership in the AFP Consortium, the SRA MP supports the latest advances in AFP color technology.

The Oce JetStream systems offer an integrated roll-to-roll configuration with a tight web for precise registration and control. A high-speed paper path produces CMYK full-process color output at approximately 500 feet per minute with 600x600 dpi resolution. The system supports a wide range of papers and weights, and no special media is required. Paper processing options include a cross-perforation device for folding and a punch unit for creating pin feed holes. Optional roll slitter and folding units increase finishing options. Integrated finishing allows seamless workflow automation for uninterrupted production that requires little manual intervention.

Quality Verification Assured

Oce pursues every opportunity to help customers squeeze more productivity out of their workflows, including the processes that support the actual printing. Optional integrated verification cameras available only on Oce systems let operators view photos of output, so that they can check print quality without stopping the printers. As a result, document quality is assured, operators greatly reduce the time they must spend on manual verification, and the printers don't require frequent stops.

Built-in synchronization technology provides an important capability for printers in the transaction market, when front and back pages and document sets must match. Oce solves the problem with its patented proven data integration and synchronization.

Oce JetStream systems are available for controlled release in the first quarter of 2008.
