New, Larger VersaCAMM Speeds Up Production Workflow

VersaCAMM SP-540V

Hamamatsu, Japan, September 1, 2004 – Roland DG Corporation today introduced the VersaCAMM SP-540V, a 4-color, 54" wide ECO-SOL INK printer/cutter.

"The 30" VersaCAMM SP-300 quickly became a best seller all over the world as it lowered the price/performance threshold for businesses using digital inkjet printing technology," said A. Suzaki, Roland DG Color Product Manager. "Very soon, however, voices began calling for a wider and faster VersaCAMM. We responded by producing a second VersaCAMM inkjet model. The SP-540V is everything the SP-300 is and more. It prints up to 10.6 m2/h (114 sqft/hr) at 360 dpi and is even easier to use for those who desire professional printing and precision contour cutting in a single, simple-to-operate device."

Included with the SP-540V is a revolutionary new software RIP. After reviewing all the current RIPs available, Roland developed Roland VersaWorks" exclusively for the SP-540V.

"Even those unfamiliar with RIPs will find VersaWorks easy-to-use with its drag-and-drop capabilities and its at-a-glance screen with icons," Suzaki said. "Everything you want to know is visible on the screen without clicking menus."

VersaWorks includes precision color management to faithfully reproduce color and astonishingly fine details. Before printing, you are able to preview your color adjustments on screen and take advantage of a wide variety of layout functions, such as nesting and tiling, to reduce ink and media consumption. VersaWorks is built upon a genuine Adobe® PostScript®3™ engine to provide reliably smooth output production.
