Riso customers now have a new range of capabilities for high-volume, high-performance, variable-data print production with the release of the first EFI Fiery Digital Front End (DFE) for Riso printers. The new ComColorExpress FS2000C from Electronics For Imaging (EFI) provides entry into high-speed, high-volume colour inkjet printing using EFI’s Fiery DFE technology and the Fiery Command WorkStation job management interface. “Customers gain a new, high-quality and affordable means to address quick-turnaround requirements for their cost-effective, high-speed RisoComColor printers,” said the OEM. Running on the latest Fiery FS200 Pro platform, the new DFE provides centralized job and colour management that uses the full potential of Riso’s affordable high-speed colour systems, running at 160 pages per minute. Leveraging the Fiery Command WorkStation, users can manage multiple printers or an entire shop from a single point, for more streamlined and efficient operation – even in multi-vendor printing environments. “Adding ComColorExpress FS2000C powered by EFI Fiery to our top-of-the-line ComColor GD series will bring significant added value for Riso customers,” said Andre D’Urbano, Riso’s Director of Strategic Business Development. “We’re especially pleased with the ease of use this solution provides, which gives operators the ability to perform even the most complex tasks with a fast learning curve.”
Riso customers now have access to advanced Fiery make-ready options such as Fiery Impose, Compose and JobMaster that enable operators to transform complex job preparation tasks into simple steps. The visual user interface creates a fast learning curve for customers to better manage even the most complex jobs without waste – including booklets, business cards or manuals with custom bleed-edge tabs. Riso customers will also benefit from a wide range of workflow and productivity features for high operational efficiency – including Fiery JobFlow Base for automation of job preparation and Fiery Hot Folders for streamlined, drag-and-drop file printing workflows. Customers can also use the server to integrate their digital printing operations with EFI’s Digital StoreFront web-to-print and Productivity Suite MIS/ERP workflows.
The Riso ComColor GD with the Fiery DFE offers customers an ideal solution for an affordable means of producing high-volume transactional print, direct-mail, education course materials, manuals, newsletters, all sizes of envelopes and more, with a very low capital investment and low running costs. “This new offering gives users a great first step into high-volume colour printing, including efficient variable-data printing, and comes with a wide range of finishing accessories for stitching, booklet making and perfect binding, as well as a complete solution for printing and folding a mailing envelope along with its contents,” said Riso. The ComColorExpress FS2000C powered by Fiery is available from Riso and authorized Riso resellers.
