Xerox Introduces Rialto 900 Inkjet Press
Feb 25 15
Xerox's newest press will make inkjet technology a reality for more print service providers by breaking down barriers such as high print volumes, large footprint and cost. The Xerox Rialto 900 Inkjet Press offers first-of-its kind features and carves out a new space within the booming production color inkjet segment. The fully-integrated roll-to-cut sheet, narrow web inkjet press is designed for print providers who produce 1.5 to 5 million impressions per month. It has the smallest footprint of any inkjet press on the market - 11.9 x 5.1 feet/3.58 x 1.55 meters (including the press tower) - a cost-effective option for various production environments. To help lower the entry point into production inkjet technology, the Rialto 900 prints duplex jobs, one-up on the smallest, narrow web (9.84 inches/250 millimeters) on the market. The device offers the speed and image quality required to take on full-color, personalised direct-mail, statements and book production. Its all-in-one design means the front-end controller, paper roll and finishing components are housed within the machine - a space saver and service convenience. Automating and simplifying production is seamless with a range of workflow offerings, including XMPie PersonalEffect StoreFlow, Xerox FreeFlow Core and VI Suite and solutions from GMC and Solimar - all driving the press at rated speed for maximum productivity. Additional features include: 1000 x 1000 dpi perceived resolution for high-quality output. Missing jet detection and duplex matching that are integrated and automated, saving time. Media flexibility with Xerox's water-based pigment HD ink. Choice of a PDF or IPDS digital front end. Integrated cutter and stacker. Large, touch screen display for easy access to media selection, imposition, DFE status and job history. Xerox Impika Evolution Inkjet Press, among the faster inkjet printers at 832 feet/254 meters per minute, has enhanced image quality capabilities with the VHQ (Very High Quality) mode and other improvements. With VHQ, printers can increase the smoothness, detail and visual resolution of images on both offset and inkjet treated papers. Multi-size levels of ink are ejected from different nozzles onto the paper, maximizing the control of ink drop placement at high speeds. Combined with a more robust profiling process, VHQ offers a competitive advantage and further extends the technology investment made by Evolution customers. The Xerox Rialto 900 Inkjet Press is available for immediate order taking. The VHQ mode for the Xerox Impika Evolution Inkjet Press can be retrofitted to existing installations for a one-off charge and is available as an option on new systems.

Feb 8 15
Xerox Corporation (NYSE:XRX) is looking for acquisition opportunities. Ursula Burns, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Xerox said, "Xerox is on the hunt for acquisitions in the Middle East as it looks to boost its outsourcing services across the region." The company, which has been shifting its focus away from printers and photocopiers, has put aside up to $900 million to buy businesses for year 2015. Ursula Burns said that most of that money would be spent outside the US, adding that her firm will acquire companies in the Middle East. "I won't tell you any of the companies we are looking at but we are looking at spending $900m on acquisitions," Ursula Burns said. "So if there are good ones in the Middle East, we will buy them. We haven't quite got those offers to the Middle East yet, but they will come," Ursula Burns said.
