The Ultimate Combination in Productivity and Print Image Quality
The Oce JetStream 5500 full-color inkjet printing system produces 5,452 letter
images per minute on a 30-inch wide web. This solution combines the ultimate
in productivity and print image quality. Using the industry-proven Oce
DigiDot® inkjet drop-on-demand and multi-level technology, an excellent image
quality of 600 x 480 dpi is produced at 833 feet per minute. Moreover, the
premium 1200 dpi perceived image quality is produced at 656 feet per minute.

"The speed of the Oce JetStream 5500 printing system is unparalleled, but
what's even more amazing is the print quality," said Kris Albee, Director,
Product Marketing, Production Printing Systems division of Oce North America,
a Canon Group company.  "The dot placement and dot accuracy at these speeds
are fantastic. It delivers superior color imaging and productivity every
time." 

New and Exciting Business Opportunities for Book, Newspaper and Transaction
Printing
The Oce JetStream  5500 full-color inkjet press is the ideal solution for
book, newspaper and transaction printing. For example, trade books in the
6-inch x 9-inch format can be printed 4-up, allowing for maximum productivity.
This reduces the cost per book produced and strongly drives the economies of
scale in favor of the print provider.

"This is a real game changer for the book publishing and newspaper markets,"
said Scott Robertz, Oce product marketing manager, Production Printing Systems
division of Oce North America, a Canon Group company. "Never before have
publishers been assured of such continuously high-quality images delivered at
lightning fast speed. It dramatically accelerates the transition from offset
to digital printing."

Driving Performance at Maximum Speed
The Oce PRISMAproduction® Software Suite output management system solution for
digital webfed production printers, coupled with the Oce SRA® MP controller
with its unrivalled performance, drives variable data at an uninterrupted
production speed of 833 feet per minute on a 30-inch wide web. An especially
exciting feature for the book and newspaper printing industry is the support
of the native PDF (Adobe® PDF Print Engine 2.5) format, which is embedded in
the IPDS datastream and is ripped directly on the printer controller,
eliminating the costly and time-consuming intermediate process.
