Melville, N.Y., February 10, 2014 –- Canon Solutions America, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Canon U.S.A, today announced that it will display its latest solutions to help Geographic Information Systems (GIS) operators improve print quality, efficiency and workflow at booth #414 during the 2014 ESRI Federal GIS Conference, February 10-11, 2014 in Washington, DC.
“Canon Solutions America’s printing solutions on display at this year’s user conference easily integrate with ESRI applications to produce information rich, easy-to-print maps,” said Sal Sheikh, vice president, Large Format Systems, Canon Solutions America. “This enables government agencies to print and analyze critical information – like disaster recovery or emergency response – with unmatched speed and accuracy.”
Capture and Print Complex Information at World Class Speed
Government agencies depend upon GIS technology to communicate vast amounts of critical information and data. GIS information can also be used to increase departmental efficiency, evaluate project activities and even educate community members. These layers of complex imagery and data are necessary to produce intelligent maps that enable proactive decision making.
Unfortunately, maps are often scaled back – and valuable information is lost – due to limitations with existing large format printing technology. During the ESRI Federal GIS Conference, Canon Solutions America will display an innovative solution to solve plotting issues in GIS workflows – the Océ ColorWave® 650 printer.
This all-around productive system allows technical users to print, copy, and scan in black & white and color without sacrificing productivity, quality, or layers of detailed information. The printer can produce up to 30 full color 30” x 42” maps per hour, and the embedded Océ PowerM® Plus controller helps enhance processing times for complex GIS files so as to avoid production bottlenecks. The Océ ColorWave 650 printer also has the option of adding a Windows® Embedded Standard 7 controller to allow for the specific IT requirements of the user.The 42-inch-wide printer holds up to six media rolls, each holding up to 650 feet of inexpensive, uncoated plain paper. This unprecedented media capacity reduces media loading and saves time.
Robust, Waterfast Prints at the Touch of a Button
Additionally, innovative Océ CrystalPoint® technology delivers instantly dry prints, so GIS maps may be handled, stacked or folded immediately. These images are waterfast, making them ideal for field work in a multitude of conditions. This durability is extended with the ability to print on Tyvek®, which is recognized as a superb water resistive barrier material that combines strength, protective properties and high vapor permeability. Users can now leverage the unique printing capabilities of the Océ ColorWave 650 to create a wider variety of GIS prints that might be exposed to the elements.
