EFI and Memjet Establish Partnership for Fast, High-Quality Digital Production

FREMONT, Calif., July 01, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Electronics For Imaging, Inc. (EFII) and San Diego-based Memjet® have established a new partnership, bringing ultra-fast, high-quality EFI™ Fiery® digital front ends (DFEs) to the growing portfolio of Memjet DuraLink™ digital inkjet production solutions. EFI’s development of Fiery DFE solutions for printers featuring DuraLink technology means Memjet OEM customers will have access to one of the world’s most successful and reliable print servers for production-class digital color printing.

“We have installed a Fiery DFE to drive a 7-color digital press in Memjet’s headquarters demo center, and both our team and our partners are impressed with the way the Fiery DFE enables superior color and image control. It also offers customers advanced job management and the ability to produce versioned and variable print runs at engine-rated speed,” said Eric Owen, General Manager of Commercial Press for Memjet. “Fiery technology, combined with DuraLink’s speed, image quality and reliability, bring tremendous added value to Memjet’s DuraLink partners.”

Top-of-the-line, integrated DFE technologies for digital print production
EFI is offering Fiery DFEs for digital printing presses that incorporate DuraLink printheads. The new solution being developed for DuraLink devices captures the advantages of EFI’s most advanced digital production software platform, Fiery FS350 Pro, to deliver the best capabilities in areas print customers care about most: color and imaging, productivity, management tools and connectivity.

Users will be able to meet demanding customer requirements for brand colors and extended-gamut applications featuring extended ink sets. Plus, the Fiery DFEs for Memjet DuraLink presses will give users the power to make on-the-fly corrections and late-stage color edits at the DFE for uninterrupted production.

The DFEs will also include EFI Fiery Color Profiler Suite software, which provides some of the most advanced color management tools available for profile creation, inspection, editing and color quality assurance. Fiery Color Profiler Suite also features G7® System Certification for fast, accurate re-calibration, correct tonality and gray balance, and higher saturated colors.

The Fiery XB hardware configuration for the new DFEs is a scalable architecture that keeps engines running at rated speeds to meet demanding production requirements. Fiery XB consumes all variable-data formats and languages, including PDF and PDF/VT and, for high-volume transactional print applications, it complies with native intelligent printer data stream (IPDS) workflows and is certified IS/3 compliant.

Users will also have the advantage of using the proven, leading EFI Fiery Command WorkStation® interface – print management software that provides continuity across all Fiery Driven™ digital equipment, including cut-sheet and continuous-feed devices and wide- and superwide-format display graphics printers. The new Fiery DFEs will also give DuraLink device users expanded workflow management efficiencies through automated, bi-directional communication and integration with EFI’s market-leading MIS/ERP and web-to-print products.    

Fiery technology: more growth opportunities for Memjet customers
“We are pleased to be working with Memjet to give its DuraLink OEM partners a new competitive advantage with the Fiery DFEs’ proven strengths in driving high-value personalization, boosting productivity and providing superior color quality,” said John Henze, vice president, sales and marketing, EFI Fiery. “This partnership will bring our most-advanced technologies to an even broader base of print service providers, packaging companies and industrial manufacturers that see the tremendous opportunity for growth in high-end digital color print.”

    It expects its revenue to rise just 0%-2% annually in the first quarter, and for its adjusted EPS to grow just 7%-9% -- down from its double-digit growth throughout fiscal 2019. Analysts expected Cisco's revenue and earnings to go up 2% and 11%, respectively. Cisco's softer guidance was surprising, and the stock's post-earnings drop to a seven-month low likely rattled investors.

    Virgin plastic pellets are the biggest pollution disaster you’ve never heard of

    Some 30 miles north of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, in a township adjacent to a state forest, oil and gas giant Royal Dutch Shell is building a sprawling new plant to support what it sees as the future of its business: making millions of tons of new, virgin plastic. US president Donald Trump visited the facility last week, highlighting the 5,000 construction jobs it has created. Shell, along with other major oil and gas companies like Exxon, sees plastic as one avenue for growth as natural gas prices plummet—and, longer-term, as a way to weather the world's slow rejection of fossil fuels as an energy source.

    Healthcare REITs: A Boom Is Coming

    That growth rate isn't great, but it looks wonderful when you consider the REIT's senior housing operating portfolio (SHOP), which accounts for around 32% of NOI. These are assets that Ventas effectively owns and operates (though technically it hires others to run the facilities), allowing it to benefit from the upside of operating performance -- and weather the downside. Ventas' 2019 projections call for an NOI decline of as much as 3% in the SHOP group, largely because of weak pricing and demand driven by oversupply.
