New EFI And Sharp Alliance Brings Fiery Digital Front End To Market For Sharp Pro Series

FOSTER CITY, Calif., Sept. 6, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- EFI™ (Nasdaq:EFII), a world leader in customer-focused digital printing innovation, today announced that it has established an agreement with Osaka, Japan-based Sharp Corp. to develop versatile, integrated Fiery digital front ends (DFEs) for high-quality production printing.

As a result of this new agreement, EFI will provide its Fiery ® DFE with Sharp ® Pro Series Digital Color Document Systems. These Fiery Driven™ production systems will make their worldwide debut September 8-12 in Chicago at North America's largest printing trade show, Print 13, in the EFI booth, #2602.

The Sharp ® MX-6500N and MX-7500N Pro Series products are the first in the industry to offer full control of EFI's Fiery Command WorkStation ® job management interface right from the print engine operation panel. Sharp's unique, 15.4-inch, high-resolution touch screen display serves as the primary operation panel for the Pro Series, giving operators convenient access to the Command WorkStation interface.

"This integration combines Sharp's unique feature set with EFI's high-performance Fiery technology for a complete solution to fulfill the demands of today's print professionals," said Mike Marusic, senior vice president, Marketing and Business Solutions Group, Sharp Imaging and Information Company of America.

"We are excited about the alliance with Sharp in the development of innovative new products in the production space," said John Henze, vice president, Fiery marketing, EFI. "We have worked closely with Sharp to create the ultimate integrated printing platform for on-demand print environments that need precision job management."

Unmatched versatility with Fiery's powerful, flexible foundation

Sharp's flagship Pro Series consists of two models, the MX-6500N and the MX-7500N, offering the Fiery Server MX-PE10 running the latest Fiery FS100 Pro system software. Designed for busy in-plant and on-demand production environments, these new models' Fiery servers provide a powerful and flexible platform for managing environments with distributed operations, demanding turnaround times and different operator skill levels. The printers – which offer edge-to-edge printing for professional, full-bleed work and an exclusive, triple air-feed paper handling option supporting a wide range of media – help businesses produce more jobs in-house and improve profitability.
