Roland Announces SOLJET PRO II V Series of
Advanced Inkjet Printers and Printer/Cutters

Hamamatsu, Japan. January 7, 2005. Roland DG Corporation, a worldwide leader in the manufacture of wide-format inkjet printers, today introduced the new SOLJET PRO II V Series of inkjet printers and printer/cutters, building on the company's award-winning SOLJET technology with refinements of increased speed, precision and overall performance.

"Whether you are in the business of outdoor sign making or quality indoor graphics production, you can take full advantage of the new PRO II V series," said A. Suzaki, Roland DG Color Product Manager. "Based on the combination of new Roland's V Technology and environmentally-friendly ECO-SOLINK, the PROII Vs quickly produce vivid billboards, banners or unmatched smooth, natural looking graphics with an outstanding level of detail. With the addition of Roland VersaWorks™ software, every single internal data processing point in the PRO II V Series has been optimized and streamlined for easier, faster production."

To take advantage of all the PRO II V advanced hardware features, Roland created VersaWorks, a powerful software RIP developed exclusively for Roland inkjet printers. VersaWorks features an efficient GUI operation that allows you to take full advantage of a wide variety of layout, edit and print functions such as nesting, tiling and auto/manual-layout, among others. These features combine with an advanced color management system and the ability to customize ICC profiles to ensure the highest overall levels of performance.

In addition, VersaWorks offers the ability to preview jobs on screen reducing ink consumption. It features network support for both Windows and Mac users and simplifies printing by offering two job queues for handling different print conditions. Users can automatically update VersaWorks through the Internet, ensuring that they have the latest version and ICC profiles available.
