Uncompromising Print Speed and Quality for ESRI Software Users
The Oce TCS500 large format multifunction system harnesses the power of concurrent processing, printing, copying and scanning to make it the most productive large format color GIS inkjet print system on the market. Highly intuitive, the system automatically optimizes print speed and print quality when printing lines, text and images -- making it a great choice for printing complex GIS files. Furthermore, the Oce TCS500 promotes ease of use with its ability to use multiple rolls and change media or ink while printing.
Sharing the same core technologies as the Oce TCS500, the cost-effective Oce TCS300 combines the power of quick, concurrent file processing with unmatched print speed. The Oce TCS300 represents a strong solution for GIS users who need to produce large format color and monochrome prints without sacrificing quality.
