Stock quotes in this article: EFII

FREMONT, Calif., Feb. 4, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- EFI™ (Nasdaq:EFII), a world leader in customer-focused digital printing innovation, and Konica Minolta Business Solutions U.S.A. Inc., announced the availability of two new digital front ends (DFEs) – the EFI Fiery® IC-308 and IC-415 – designed to drive the Konica Minolta bizhub PRESS C1060, C1070 and C1070P family of digital presses. Running on the latest, award-winning Fiery FS100 Pro platform, the EFI Fiery DFEs provide unparalleled performance, color management and workflow automation tools.

"The new additions to the Fiery line-up for the Konica Minolta bizhub PRESS family deliver almost 2.5 times performance improvement over their predecessors," said John Henze, vice president, Fiery marketing, EFI. "This means that print service providers can increase their capacity by shortening turnaround times for even the most challenging and complex files, including increasingly popular variable data jobs."

"The ongoing relationship between EFI and Konica Minolta is represented in these market-leading solutions," said Kevin Kern, senior vice president, Marketing, Konica Minolta Business Solutions U.S.A. "We are truly excited about delivering new and continued value to our customers with the right solutions to ensure a seamless, integrated experience."

Reliable processing at blazing speeds

The two Fiery DFE models are targeted at production print operations, ranging from CRDs to commercial printing firms, and bring powerful functionality for high-margin print jobs such as photobooks or personalized communications. Users can also couple the Fiery IC-308 with Fiery Central, EFI's centralized job production solution, to drive both the new color Konica Minolta bizhub PRESS models and black-and-white bizhub PRESS 1052/1250/1250P digital printers. This unique configuration provides a centralized workflow with the common Fiery Command WorkStation® job management interface to automatically balance printer fleet workloads for more efficient and lower cost production.

The Fiery FS100 Pro platform used for the new DFEs is the only production platform to achieve a 100% perfect pass rating from industry organization VIGC's PDF RIP Audit. This means that users can accurately and consistently reproduce even intricately designed files developed with tools like Adobe Creative Suite, avoiding costly reprints, delivery delays and dissatisfied print buyers.
