Tokyo, 27th October 2008

OKI Printing Solutions today announced it will participate in CARTES and IDentification 2008. The fair will be held at Paris-Nord Villepinte-France Exhibition Center from 4-6 November 2008

At the fair, OKI will showcase a new secure printing solution, Smartcard Assure Print, demonstrated as part of the new OKI C830dn printer, the latest addition to its High Definition LED printer series.

The solution will be showcased in line with Shared Security Formats Corporation (SSFC) standards, promoted by Dai Nippon Printing Co., Ltd.(DNP), a new data format for contactless smartcards, aimed at enhancing office security.

Smartcard Assure Print allows businesses to endorse tight security measures without compromise, offering benefits beyond security. Businesses can cut costs and reduce waste by carefully managing usage. And they can do all this without limiting the ability of OKI's printers to deliver high-performance in-house printing supported by High Definition colour and great media flexibility, in order to generate high-impact outputs quickly.

Tetsuhei Kawamura, Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of OKI Printing Solutions EMEA says : "Security has become a concern for all businesses. We are pleased to showcase an effective printing security solution that offers benefits beyond security.

Print security will control log activities, which, in turn, will reduce waste, drive down costs and streamline communications, he adds. "It is an ideal solution for the financial, government and healthcare sectors, where optimum security needs to be maintained at all times to ensure business continuity."

OKI Printing Solutions has developed its own security system, which is compliant with SSFC standards. The SSFC Stand, No.4, N035, will demonstrate the latest security solutions while enhancing customers' business communications. As part of its SSFC collaboration, OKI will demonstrate "Paper Lifecycle Management" - a solution which is being developed with Meiko Shokai's Personal ID/Shred Log Shredder.

*Smartcard Assure Print is currently available in Japan only.
