On the first day of Fespa Africa, Bytes Document Solutions in conjunction with Xerox held the worldwide launch of the new Xerox Versant 2100 high-quality digital colour press. The latest addition to the Xerox digital colour production press range produces high-quality vibrant colour in full 1200 x 1200dpi with 10-bit image depth. The 100-page per minute device can handle a wide range of media from 55gsm right through to 350gsm. It combines speed, image quality and high levels of automation to create colourful personalised communications.
The device uses a new toner set to achieve high-quality and vibrant colours, more typically seen on hexachrome or stochastic printing devices. The additional 2-bit image depth means that a wider gamut of colours can be achieved. Paul Haglich, marketing manager for production systems at Bytes Document Solutions said, ‘There is a growing market for versatile devices. The Xerox Versant 2100 meets those requirements due to its ability to handle a wide range of stocks including coated and uncoated papers, textured papers and even polyester. It can even handle jobs with mixed stocks allowing. This is a unique opportunity for Bytes and Xerox to be able to have a worldwide launch of a new device like this here in South Africa. It is the first time it is being shown anywhere in the world at a trade show.’
