The Phaser 360 color printer uses a 100MHz RISC processor for fastest processing.
The Chinese color printer market is gaining momentum.
The company's Phaser product line currently includes the world's fastest high-volume desktop color laser printer (Phaser 550) and the world's most versatile plain-paper office color printer (the Phaser 340).
In a series of tests conducted by BLI, the Lanier color printers stood out for their performance, functionality, and value, according to Anthony Polifrone, managing director for BLI.
The Phaser 550 color printer also sets new levels for workgroup shareability with its large toner capacities, three media trays and Tektronix' exclusive PhaserLink(TM) World Wide Web-based printer management software.
Xerox also received PC Magazine's "Best of the Year" award in the peripherals category for the Phaser 6300DN color printer and three "Editor's Choice" awards for the Phaser 8500/8550, Phaser 6300/6350 and Phaser 7400 color printers from Better Buys for Business, a leading research firm and authority on office imaging equipment.
Not only does the printer have dual dye-sublimation and wax thermal technologies -- which is a great advantage all by itself -- but it also breaks down a price barrier that has kept most graphics professionals from acquiring their own tabloid-size color printer.
Not only is the magicolor 5450 one of the lowest-priced legal-size color printers in this speed range, but its procedure for replacing toner is one of the cleanest and simplest we've seen.
Tektronix' dealer programs are also expanding due to the greater emphasis on the office color printer market.
Color printer users often want to keep color copying in-house, but dedicated color copiers cost over $50,000 and desktop color scanners take extra time to use.
The award is the latest in a long line of stellar ratings for the new color printers and color multifunction products (MFP) from OKI Printing Solutions.
