Maximisation of Printer Productivity with GX Print Server 2

GX Print Server 2 processes high capacity jobs rapidly at high resolution of 1200 x 1200 dpi, 10 bit. It handles variable printing and other high capacity jobs effortlessly and fully maximises the high productivity of the printer.

"Middle Data Format" Suppresses Capacity and Processes Jobs at High Speed
Text and images are automatically determined and managed in object units. High image quality jobs of large data capacity are processed at high speed while retaining image quality and suppressing the capacity.

High-Speed Processing Achieved through the "RIP Accelerator Board" Hardware
High-speed tuning is achieved at the hardware level, thus enabling the printer to perform at a faster speed than the physical specification of the server.

  • Note: Standard equipment. Can be added as an option.

"High-Speed Serial Transfer Technology" from Print Server to Printer
Data processed at the print server is transmitted to the printer at 4.25 Gbps/channel* broadband. Errors are automatically detected and corrected, and high reliability is assured.

  • *: 2 channels used in 1 colour.

New Proprietary Technology Enables Continuous Feed Sheet by Sheet for Various Paper Types

The newly developed Air Suction Feeder uses an air suction method to handle paper. With our proprietary shuttle head shape and mechanism that draws up the paper strongly using a small amount of air, it easily separates and delivers various paper types sheet by sheet efficiently. This mechanism improves feed performance for paper types where traditional feed methods cause stress, such as paper with a lot of paper dust, pre-printed paper for offset printing using powder, paper with uneven texture, and coated paper that is prone to sticking. Stable and high-speed feed is achieved for various paper types, from lightweight to heavyweight, small-sized paper and long paper. The Air Suction Feeder*1 also supports continuous printing of long paper. It can load 100 sheets*2 of 330 x 1200 mm long paper and 800 sheets*2 of 330 x 864 mm long paper.

  • *1: Air Suction Feeder C1-DSXL, Chained Air Suction Feeder C1-DSXL-L
  • *2: 90 gsm paper.

1200 x 1200 dpi x 10-bit RIP rendering

RIP resolution of 1200 x 1200 dpi and lossless compression reproduces vibrant colours without compromising the quality of the original image. 10 bit processing delivers smooth gradation.

Clear Printing of Small Texts and Thin Lines

Edge enhancement:
Jaggy, which tends to occur on midtone texts and lines, is suppressed by screen processing on contours, reproducing crisp texts and lines.

Adjust Invert Text/Line Weight:
In these processes, the press mitigates crushing of white texts and fattening of black texts when the texts are small. Several levels of toner amount are available for selection for applying to the contour, so that you can set a desirable balance for better readability of texts.

Versant 3100i Press 

Selectable Screens According to the Object

Various screens are available for selection according to the object such as text or photo. Use our proprietary FM screen when moire patterns appear. The FM screen minimises graininess with appropriate dotdeployment according to the characteristics of xerography and renders smooth image quality.

Auto Correction of Photos According to the Shooting Condition and Purpose

NIE* is used to automatically correct the contrast and colour balance of images taken with digital cameras if they appear dark, undersaturated, and colour is unbalanced. A wide variety of images can be corrected, such as colour-fogged photos taken under fluorescent lights, photos to show freshness, and photos to emphasise high definition.

Stable Colour Reproduction with 3D Calibration

Versant 3100i Press is equipped with a Full Width Array inline sensor that automates colour adjustment in calibration and the X-Rite i1® Pro 3 Spectrophotometer. It supports stable colour reproduction with the high-resolution 3D calibration and feedback feature that supports both single and mixed colours.

Automated Adjustment with Full Width Array Inline Sensor

Automates the adjustments for colour calibration, image-to-media alignment, image transfer adjustment, density uniformity adjustment and tonal reproduction curve adjustment which are traditionally manually adjusted by operators. This helps to save operation hassle, improve utilisation rate, and ensure stable print quality.

Preset Registration of Optimal Print Conditions for Every Paper Type

Printer operation settings such as transfer voltage and curl correction accordingly to the paper characteristic can be registered in the Stock Library. This minimises the adjustment required during printing. In addition to our preset recommended paper list, users can customise and register up to 1000 paper types.

Easy Error Confirmation with Visual Log Display

The GX Print Server 2 is equipped with a timeline function that displays job and printer status and history in chronological order. User job logs can also be easily checked on the screen, allowing for swift action when errors occur.
