Productivity and creativity in the workplace
Designed for medium and large workgroups, two new customisable Xerox VersaLink C8000 and C9000 A3 colour printers produce professional colour quality, backed by benchmark reliability at an affordable total cost of ownership. In addition, the C9000 is equipped with precision colour management tools, greater media ﬂexibility and added productivity.
The exclusive 5-inch, tilt-capable, colour user interface responds to taps, swipes and pinches, much like mobile devices, and can be personalised for different work environments or individual users.
Further personalisation is provided by Xerox ConnectKey apps, available from the Xerox App Gallery. These apps provide onetouch, easy access to cloud services such as Dropbox, Google Drive and Box; and with @PrintByXerox, any email-enabled device can print a job while on the go.
The C9000 also handles heavier stocks for greater media ﬂexibility in developing applications such as brochures, proposals, posters, direct-mail pieces and signage. To automate the final output, optional finishing, available on both devices, offer saddle-stitch, crease, and booklet making.

Collaboration that just works
NEC Display Solutions Europe has launched the second generation of its NEC InfinityBoard display solution for meetings, presentation, conferencing and collaboration.
Available in a choice of four sizes, InfinityBoard is a powerful and scalable all-in-one workspace designed for every meeting size and scenario – from brainstorming to reviewing content, video conferencing to collaboration. The 55” version is perfect for huddle spaces hosting smaller groups, and has an optimised collaboration soundbar, integrated microphone and camera, making it easy to co-create documents and share ideas. Its size means it can be transferred from room to room on a trolley, making it perfect for spontaneous and informal meetings anywhere.
The 65” and 75” versions are designed to fit to every scenario – from multiple presenters to large groups with remote participation. Meanwhile, the 86” InfinityBoard provides a canvas that is large enough to bring ideas to life in high definition.
Each version incorporates a professional ultra-high definition InGlass touch display, providing a seamless, paper-like touch performance using passive stylus pens. They also include an ultra-wide angle Huddly GO video conferencing camera and high-end conference speakers.
Canon launches imagePROGRAF Series
Canon has launched the new imagePROGRAF Series of large format inkjet printers. Built on the technology of the large format imagePROGRAF TX Series, the new printers address the needs of customers in the corporate, construction and engineering, retail, education and government sectors, enabling them to produce high quality drawings, maps and posters on demand, in-house.
The new series features eight different models, all aimed at customers printing low- to mid-volumes. The fve 36-inch models are: TM-300; TM-305 (with built-in HDD and PDF support); TM-300MFP L36ei (multifunctional printer with low-volume scanning solution); TM-300MFP T36 (multifunctional printer with higher scanning solution); TM-305MFP T36 (high performance multifunctional printer). The three 24-inch models are: TM-200; TM- 205 (with built-in HDD and PDF support); TM-200MFP L24ei (multifunctional printer with low-volume scanning solution).
Without compromising on high productivity, Canon has made enhancements to some primary noise sources; the platen suction fan now includes a damping structure; the media cutter cuts cleaner which reduces vibrations; the media feeding technology has been developed with the line-feeding motor being slowed and motor pulley diameter being enlarged to also reduce media vibrations. The enhancements have contributed to a reduction in noise by 60% in comparison to the imagePROGRAF iPF Series.
