The launch represented the first printer to be developed jointly by Encad and Kodak since Encad was acquired.
The machine prints at speeds of up to 14sqm per hour in its high quality productivity mode and Encad claims it is the fastest printer in its class.
The key to the new device lies in the newly developed 640 nozzle printhead and in a new dynamic print masking technique which Encad calls Intelligent Mask Technology (IMT) and which it says allows it to deliver its high speed with exceptional quality.
As one of the longest serving parts of Kodak‚s newly renamed commercial printing group, Encad exhibited products alongside Nexpress, the Kodak / Heidelberg 50/50 joint venture which Kodak fully acquired this year.
On the stand, the Nexpress 2100 printed brochures for a travel company, while the Encad NovaJet printed wide format advertisement posters for the same job, demonstrating what Encad describes as the consistent colour quality between jobs.
