|October 22, 2000 — ENCAD, Inc. (Nasdaq NM: ENCD) announced it is shipping its new wide-format printer, the NovaJet 850, meeting its target date of mid-October. The NovaJet 850 debuted at the August Seybold 2000 show in San Francisco. With multiple configurations, exceptional throughput and a wide variety of new ink and media options (including new Octachrome™ inks), the NovaJet 850 provides maximum productivity and flexibility for the wide-format printing market.
"The NovaJet 850 is the ideal choice for the print-for-pay market," said Terry Vandewarker, President & CEO, ENCAD, Inc. "Service bureaus, photo labs, exhibit builders and sign shops will find that this printer gives them the ability to produce more useable prints, in less time, than other printers in the industry."
"ENCAD’s NovaJet 850 represents a complete print solution with its offering of twelve ink lines, three ink types, eleven ink configurations, and a broad range of indoor and outdoor media. This gives customers flexibility and image quality well beyond any four- or six-color printer on the market," stated Pat Ryan, Vice President of Worldwide Marketing. "Combined with our unique Dynamic Thermal Drying System™ (DTD System™), NovaJet 850 prints can be rolled up, laminated, and delivered faster than those printed on traditional wide-format inkjet printers."
The NovaJet 850 offers users the ability to print in four, six, or eight color modes using any of ENCAD’s high-performance inks: GS PLUS™ (Graphic Standard PLUS™) a high-gamut indoor dye-based ink; GX™ (Graphic Extend™), a lightfast indoor dye-based ink; and GO™ (Graphic Outdoor™), an indoor/outdoor pigment-based ink. Ultra-Fi™ eight-color ink configurations, for GS PLUS and GX, include two levels of cyan and magenta dilutions. They deliver dramatically improved smoothness within tonal gradations. Octachrome™ eight-color ink configurations, which include orange and green as well as dilutions of magenta and cyan, will be available for GX and GO. These ink configurations provide the dual benefit of improved smoothness and expanded color gamut. Both Octachrome and Ultra-Fi inks will be available in late November.
