Xanté Booth 1008

Robust Ilumina Digital Envelope Press GT & Ilumina Digital Production Press GT Go to the Front of the Line with EFI Controllers and 1200 x 1200 dpi Resolution

New Entry Level Ilumina GL 330 Delivers Trademark Ilumina Power & Quality in Lower Cost

Mobile, Alabama and Miami, Florida – February 18, 2010 – The North and Latin America debut of 3 new models in the best-selling Xanté Ilumina series will take place in Xanté booth #1008 at Graphics of the Americas, February 25 – 27 at the Miami Beach Convention Center.

Xanté adds the heavy-duty Ilumina Digital Envelope Press GT, high-end Ilumina Digital Production Press GT, and entry level Ilumina GL 330 to the Ilumina series, which has become known for its high value, robust quality, color capabilities, and easy integration in any configuration.

Also on display will be the Degrava DP 8500, an affordable and high quality, simple solution for label and tag printing; and the PlateMaker 5, a chemical-free, process-free, total prepress system that images paper proofs, film and polyester plates.

New Ilumina Model Names Signify Different Applications
The new Ilumina models coincide with a new naming scheme for the full range of Ilumina products, with GL signifying appropriateness for mid-volume shops, and GT referring to the more powerful processors and controllers driving higher volume applications with more demanding requirements.

The iQueue Intelligent Color Workflow
The exhibit will also feature the free iQueue Intelligent Color Workflow, the multi- faceted content and production management solution. Several features include spot color matching, unlimited screening control, independent CMYK control, full color management, flexible queue management, archiving and much better output quality, due to special screening technology. The iQueue Intelligent Color Workflow also provides up to 25% savings on toner cost due to the special screening, making it an attractive companion to the Ilumina series.

More Detail on the New Ilumina Models
Key to the superiority of the two new higher-end Ilumina series is the addition of EFI controllers and a new platform supporting 1200 x 1200 dpi resolution. Says Xanté CEO Robert Ross, “We’ve broken through perceived barriers in the small to mid-size part of the market, bringing noticeably unique, high quality and reliability to quick printers and smaller shops with limited budgets. The Ilumina GL 330 is a perfect example of this.

“Now,” Ross continues, “we’re blurring the lines a bit higher up in the food chain; making it possible for larger shops to deliver excellent color jobs quickly, at significantly lower cost than they have anticipated, with our more powerful GT models.”
