OKI Data Americas is pleased to announce that one of its innovative OKI proColor Series printers has been selected for use in the EmFuse Color Braille Station by ViewPlus Technologies Inc. OKI’s printing know-how and ViewPlus’ knowledge of Braille embossing have married in the EmFuse system to create media that delivers both color printing and embossing together within a single document. The result is as extraordinary visually as it is conceptually, and the system’s use takes print-on-demand capabilities to a new level for both sighted and the visually-impaired individuals, alike.
The EmFuse Color Braille Station—including the OKI proColor printer handles color printing and Braille embossing with ease, even printing/embossing double-sided on up to 12 inch by 18 inch and A3 paper. The system has the ability to utilize Braille paper or standard office media including cardstock, copy paper and labels. Its high paper-handling capacity, high-definition color output, and long-lasting toner cartridges make the system ideal for any organization—educational, governmental, or otherwise—that requires production of Braille documents and materials.
According to Jeff Gardner, CEO of ViewPlus Technologies, Inc., the OKI proColor printer was selected for the EmFuse system because, “It was the only printer that is capable of handling the required size range and weight of media to convey the raised Braille embossing in addition to high-impact color output.”
The EmFuse system generates materials that may include both Braille and color printing, allowing sighted individuals the opportunity the ability to read what is embossed. This is especially useful for those who teach the visually-impaired. The system’s practicality is demonstrated within its capability for dual purpose printing-on-demand.
Whereas organizations may wait days or weeks and pay top dollar for documents to be reproduced in Braille, this system services such needs both quickly and cost-effectively.
“OKI continues to offer innovative, high quality, short-run color printing solutions through the proColor Series,” said Rich Egert, General Manager of the Strategic Technology Provider Business Group for OKI Data Americas. “Our collaboration with ViewPlus on the EmFuse Color Braille Station is another example of OKI’s commitment to the delivery of custom printing solutions as we continue to fill voids within the marketplace.”
The OKI proColor Series portfolio includes the pro910 and pro930 cut-sheet printers, the pro510DW digital web press, and the pro900DP and pro905DP digital envelope presses.
