Fuji Xerox Printers unleashes a new gold standard in colour
09 February 2012
Sydney, AUSTRALIA – Fuji Xerox Printers has established a new gold standard in colour with the release of its new flagship printer, the Phaser 7800. The A3 device is packed with industry-leading colour quality tools, extensive media handling capabilities and premium finishing options which meet the demands of creative professionals and enable business users to produce commercial quality materials in-house.
“The Phaser 7800 is the only A3 tabloid-sized colour printer in its class that delivers the full complement of capabilities that graphic-intensive organisations require. The colour range and accuracy, media handling capabilities and finishing options offered by this device are simply without peer,” said David Borg, General Manager, Fuji Xerox Printers Australia & New Zealand.
“While it has unquestionable appeal for creative organisations, the Phaser 7800 is also an attractive solution for businesses that are passionate about print quality but want to gain more control and cut costs by printing in-house. It gives them the freedom to create custom collateral without outsourcing to expensive printing houses, and can accelerate the entire production process as accurate proofs can be printed on site for immediate inspection.”
No compromise on quality
Printing at true 1200 x 2400dpi - a resolution unmatched in its class - the Phaser 7800 brings out the finest details in images, photos and graphics. Core to the printer are its colour-matching capabilities.
PANTONE® colour calibrations are included as standard to ensure that print outs match colour swatches. As an optional extra, the Phaser 7800 also offers Fuji Xerox’s industry leading PhaserMatch® 5.0 technology, to deliver superior colour matching between printed documents and output devices such as computer screens or digital presses.
To further ensure high precision prints Fuji Xerox’s exclusive SLED print head creates sharp detail and smooth colour transition without streaking, and Adobe® PostScript 3™ provides the accuracy demanded in professional design environments.
Exceptional media handling and professional finishing options
Enabling media mastery, the Phaser 7800 handles an unparalleled variety of stock weights – from 75 to 350gsm. Business users can easily create professional quality custom brochures, sales proposals, posters and banners, while creative professionals can push design boundaries with heavyweight paper for books and calendars, and non-traditional sizes for postcards, business cards and photos. Finishing options include booklet making, creasing, stacking and hole punching, each setting allowing for a high level of customisation.
The Phaser 7800 has been engineered for fast paced, deadline-driven environments, delivering superior results without sacrificing speed or reliability. The device delivers up to 45 pages per minute in colour and monochrome and boasts a 1.33GHz processor to handle high volume print loads. Featuring a duty cycle of up to 225,000 pages per month, it has been designed to withstand constant use while delivering consistent performance.
The Phaser 7800’s paper trays can be configured with various paper sizes and weights to suit different business requirements and save time that would be spent reloading paper every time custom stock is required. Large paper capacity of up to 3,140 sheets (with additional paper trays) ensures continuous printing without interruption.
To further boost productivity the Phaser 7800 offers a new ‘Print Around’ feature which delays jobs that require unavailable resources and pushes jobs that can be completed to the front of the queue. Meanwhile ‘Job Tracker’ monitors individual jobs and immediately alerts the job owner of any issues, providing helpful instructions to resolve the problem quickly.
Easy to use, easy on the environment
For less technical users, innovative Color by Words technology allows anyone from a graphic designer to the office administrator to easily achieve the colours they desire. Users can simply select from a unique menu of words, such as ‘red apple’, ‘blue sky’ or ‘green grass’ to fine tune colour output.
The Phaser 7800’s state-of-the-art 4.3 inch colour touch screen interface includes large icons and an intuitive menu to make navigation simple and fast. It includes embedded videos for trouble-shooting assistance enabling issues to be resolved quickly and avoiding the need to wait for IT support.
Environmental benefits include innovative EA Eco Toner which fuses together at a lower temperature than traditional laser consumables. This reduces power consumption by up to 20 percent and carbon emissions by up to 35 percent, compared to traditional toner. It also features an induction heating fuser, which consumes substantially less power in standby mode than conventional fusers.
Availability and pricing
Starting at AU$7999 + GST, the Phaser 7800 is available from March through authorised channel partners and resellers.
