Canon South Africa announced that the first award-winning Océ ColorWave 700 printers have landed in South Africa. Launched in Europe in February and available to South Africa since the beginning of August 2015, the Océ ColorWave 700 is already on display in Canon SA’s showroom and is available countrywide.
 
The printer was built to deliver the highest possible productivity in the smallest possible footprint, so it can produce an exceptional range of creative applications with minimal user training in almost any business environment. Touted to offer the perfect balance of visual and functional design, the Océ ColorWave 700 scooped a prestigious iF Product Design Award 2015 shortly after its launch.

Prakash Naidoo, National Product Manager for Canon SA’s Business Imaging Group said, ‘Already delivering value at a number of sites across the country, the Océ ColorWave 700 is proving to be a great fit within the South African context. Companies want greater versatility and more capabilities to empower creativity, without increasing the complexity of use. The Océ ColorWave 700 does all of this and more.

‘It is a highly capable all-rounder to suit high volume and high demand environments while remaining easy-to-use and intuitive. Its versatility combined with an easy-to-use interface, high resolution and speed mean that businesses can really start being creative and expand their products and services to new profitable areas.

‘Our local customers already use ColorWave printers as central workstations for their businesses, from printing full colour technical drawings and illustrations to large scale poster campaigns. The Océ ColorWave 700 expands on this, adding more potential applications such as personalised wallpaper printing.’

The Océ ColorWave 700 is a high performance colour system, available as a printer only or as a multifunctional, designed to enable a wide range of high quality graphic arts applications making it ideal for reprographics, sign and display print providers, and in-house printing applications in industries such as retail, hospitality, POS, education and government.

According to Naidoo, the Océ ColorWave 700 has enhanced media handling capabilities with an optimisation process for custom media. The system supports media up to 0.8 mm of thickness that makes it suitable for a uniquely large range of graphics applications including canvas, wallpaper and banner printing.

The printer features cloud integration, multiple user support, secure workflow, optional built-in scanner and a range of integrated output options. Up to six different rolls of media can be loaded at one time, making the printer able to handle many different jobs without having to load and unload rolls in-between. Dual hard drives and fast processors speed up file processing, and automatic media sensing and imaging device maintenance increase print quality and reduce the need for servicing.
