EFI's Fiery FS100 Pro Powers New Xerox Color J75 and C75 Presses

FOSTER CITY, Calif., Feb. 6, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- EFI™ (Nasdaq:EFII), a
world leader in customer-focused digital printing innovation, announced that
new Xerox^® digital front ends (DFEs), powered by Fiery^® are now available
for the Xerox Color J75 and C75 Presses. These DFEs are among the first to
market built on EFI's award-winning new Fiery FS100 Pro platform, which
integrates seamlessly with EFI's market-leadingMIS/ERP software,
eCommerce/Web-to-Print products, and scheduling tools tocomplete the entire
end-to-end print workflow.

Print providers can produce high-margin print applications such as photo
books, packaging and personalized communications with the high-quality color,
automated workflows, and productivity-boosting tools in the Fiery FS100 Pro
system. The new Fiery DFEs produce documents twice as fast as their
predecessors and access Xerox color and image quality features such as
Profiling and Calibration through the Xerox exclusive Automated Color Quality
Suite technology, Selectable Resolution, and Simple Image Quality Adjustment.

Danish financial institution Jyske Bank, one of the first companies in the
world to operate a Fiery-driven Xerox iGen™ 150 Press, has become one of the
first Fiery FS100 Pro users, using the technology to drive work on its new
Xerox Color J75 Press.

"The Fiery FS100 Pro automates many of the processes that our operators
currently have to manage," said Carsten Gaarde, print shop manager, Jyske
Bank. "With the FS100 Pro system, we will complete more work per shift, and
the added productivity will give us more value in our print communications
program."

The Fiery FS100 Pro is the first, and currently only, DFE that has achieved
two significant industry certifications.

  *VIGC PDF RIP Audit: Perfect label, a 100%-compliance certification for the
    rendering of PDF/X-4 files, ensuring that the true intent of the graphic
    designer will be reflected in the print job correctly the first time,
    avoiding costly reprints, delivery delays, and dissatisfied print buyers.
  *JDF1.3 Integrated Digital Printing Interoperability Conformance
    Specification (ICS) certification that ensures Fiery Driven™ devices will
    be easier than ever to integrate with workflow systems from pre-press all
    the way to printing and reporting. With the CIP4 JDF certification for
    Fiery DFEs, print providers can have confidence that their systems,
    including EFI's MIS and Web-to-Print solutions, will integrate seamlessly
    for faster, automated workflow processes that boost productivity.

"In our 2012 DFE study we found that output consistency is one of the top
reasons why print service providers select a certain brand of DFE," says
Kaspar Roos, associate director of production workflow solutions at
InfoTrends. "The new Fiery FS100 Pro scores particularly high in this area; it
has improved color management capabilities leading to reliable output as
demonstrated by the 100% pass of the VIGC RIP test."

"Fiery FS100 Pro addresses the needs of print providers to deliver vibrant
image quality quickly, efficiently and cost effectively," said John Henze,
vice president of Fiery marketing, EFI. "The new Fiery DFEs process complex
jobs faster, including VDP files in all industry standard formats. We're
extremely proud to be bringing this next generation of Fiery technology to
market in partnership with Xerox."
