Xerox Corporation (Booth 400) is spotlighting the The Espresso Book Machine, A Xerox Solution, enabling end-to-end softcover book production and manufacturing within a retail bookstore location. Available through Xerox sales channels and with Xerox support, the EBM produces a 300-page paperback book with a color cover in less than five minutes with capacity to print more than 40,000 paperback books per year. A fully-integrated solution, the EBM prints, binds and trims, and can produce variable combinations of trim sizes between 4.5x5.0" and 8.25x10.5" for a production cost less than one cent per page. The Xerox 4112 copier/printer prints the monochrome book block within the solution.
The EBM uses EspressNet, a proprietary and copyrighted software system that connects the device to a network of more than 4 million titles obtained with the approval of the content owners and aggregators. EspressNet assures the security of publishers' titles, tracks all jobs and provides payments to publishers. Content owners retain full rights and control of their digital files.
