What Are You Waiting For? Roland PRO II Series - Five New Wide-Format Digital Inkjet Devices

Hamamatsu, Japan, September 10, 2002 – Roland DG Corporation, a worldwide leader in the manufacture of wide-format digital inkjet printers, today introduced the launch of five [TH1]high-performance printers and printer/cutters, including the all new Hi-Fi JET PRO II, CAMM JET PRO II and SOLJET PRO II Series.

PRO II Series

‐ Hi-Fi JET PRO II, model FJ-540 (54" printer)
‐ CAMM JET PRO II, model CJ-540 (54" printer/cutter)
‐ SOLJET PRO II, model SJ-740/540 and SC-540 (74", 54" printers and 54" printer/cutter)

With the PRO II Series, Roland has integrated all of its technological knowledge and manufacturing expertise into every single component to achieve both high-speed and stunning color reproduction. The Hi-Fi JET PRO II's true 1440 x 1440 dpi resolution is ideal for enlargements of fine art, photography, or mural size graphics. Roland's water-based pigment ink offers exceptionally bright color as well as UV stability. The CAMM JET PRO II combines all of the high-performance printing features of the Hi-Fi JET PRO II and precision contour cutting adopted from Roland's renowned CAMM-1 PRO cutting technology. The SOLJET PRO II incorporates legendary Roland printing quality with revolutionary SOL INK to produce high-fidelity outdoor signs and banners with outstanding durability. SOLJET PRO II is available in three models consisting of two print-only devices and the SC-540 which includes contour cutting. Designed especially for the PRO II Series, new powerful Roland SelectColor™ (RSC) software RIP is included in all models.

"Since we began focusing on the print-based signmaking market in 1996, we have been eager to do something in a way that only Roland could do." said M. Osamura, Roland DG Senior Marketing Manager. "It was important for Roland to provide complete solutions versus just offering hardware. The RIP, media and ink are among the necessary components for wide-format printers. We are confident that Roland continues to offer the best complete package with our hardware. To meet the individual demands of signmakers, we expanded our inkjet solutions to the Hi-Fi JET, CAMM JET, and recently introduced SOLJET for outdoor durable applications. Continuing in the tradition of Roland printing quality, five models of the PRO II Series were developed, all more productive solutions with faster throughput and greater ease of use. Users can choose the best printer for them depending upon their needs," said Osamura.
