OKI Printing Solutions extends ground-breaking C8000 Series with launch of C8800


London 07 May 2007 – Following the successful C8600 launch in November 2006, OKI Printing Solutions - Europe’s second largest manufacturer of colour printers* - today unveiled the C8800 compact A3 printer.

The C8600 carved out a new category of affordable business colour printers that are half the overall size and almost half the price of competitor products.

Today OKI Printing Solutions expands the range by introducing the C8800 which includes PCL/Postscript capability as standard. This feature is ideal for corporate environments as it provides improved compatibility and enhanced document security for protecting data sent across a network.

The C8800 has a low starting price of just (OpCo to insert local price), and like the C8600, provides superior digital LED printing at a price considerably lower than competitor A3 colour products, inkjet or mono only devices.

Providing an A3 printer that can quietly operate within easy reach of users will significantly benefit a number of professionals who regularly print spreadsheets, booklets, workplans and charts. For those undertaking more creative applications the C8800 can also print from A6 to A3 and up to 1.2m long banners. Additionally, professionals requiring a printer capable of supporting graphical design applications will also benefit owing to the Postscript capability supporting both Mac and PC platforms.

Like all new OKI Printing Solutions colour products, the C8800 is founded on High Definition Color*; the company's own unique collection of hardware and software technologies, which deliver unsurpassed colour print quality and ease of use.

Tony Lock, Senior Manager, Marketing and Sales Colour Products, for OKI Printing Solutions (EMEA) comments: "With the launch of the category defining C8600, OKI Printing Solutions was the first European printer manufacturer to make high performance, compact A3 colour printing affordable for businesses.
