As the wide-format industry is dynamic and fast-moving, the needs of the consumers are also changing rapidly, giving rise to the demand for short turnaround time. “With the growing requirement for exploring alternatives to solvent inkjet, Océ ColorWave 700 perfectly fits the bill for low production costs, substrate flexibility and low odour prints,” Rangaraj of Srikrishna Xerox said.
He added that the differentiating factor for the Canon kit is its hybrid imaging technology, which combines the positives of inkjet and toner, while doing away with the negatives.
“Océ ColorWave 700 is designed for wider graphic arts applications and offers high quality, instant dry and waterproof prints on uncoated, thick and custom media.

Additionally, it also supports special media like fabric, canvas, PVC materials, backlight film, synthetic etc with a print resolution of 600-dpi,” he added.
