The European Digital Press Association grants the EDP Awards to the best products of the year introduced into the European market. It reviews quality as well as other key benefits such as value to the user, tech support and service. Agfa Graphics’ Jeti Mira earned the award in the category of Best Wide-Format Flatbed/Hybrid Printer (up to 250 m²/h).

The Jeti Mira is a 6-colour and white UV-inkjet true flatbed printing system featuring a moving gantry. It’s one of Agfa Graphics’ newest UV-inkjet solutions, ideal for applications ranging from posters, signage, exhibit graphics and POP displays to niche applications such as DVDs, wood, art reproductions, personalized objects and more. Printing varnish or primer are other options.

The Jeti Mira is currently on display at drupa 2016 with the dockable roll-to-roll option offering a unique solution to print on a wide variety of both flexible and rigid media.

The Jeti Mira is driven by the Asanti workflow software (EDP Award winner in 2014), which takes control of the entire process, from prepress to production through to finishing. Asanti’s file handling, colour management and preflighting raise the efficiency of the complete system with fewer errors and reduced time loss. Asanti is complemented by Asanti StoreFront, Agfa Graphics’ web-to-print solution that enables management of online stores and automatic processing of print orders.

Agfa Graphics Canada is located in Mississauga, Ontario.
