TRUMBULL, Conn., Jan. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Oce, an international leader in digital document management, has received two 2009 BERTL's Best® designations. The Oce Arizona® 350 XT UV flatbed printer was named "Best Innovative Technology for Wide Format" and the Oce PlotWave® 300 system was named "Best Eco-Friendly Wide Format Printer" by BERTL.

BERTL™ analysts review current product lines and new product introductions to identify the select group of devices and software that are superior to others. BERTL analysts look not only at how well a product performs in various real-world settings, but also what specific aspects of the device and under what circumstances make analysts stand up and take notice. BERTL's Best award covers the entire digital imaging and document management arena.

Oce Arizona 350 XT UV flatbed printer

The Oce Arizona 350 XT printer features an extra-large flatbed table capable of producing rigid prints as large as 98.4 inches wide by 120 inches long. The extra width enables the printer to be used in a continuous imaging mode for rigid media up to 4-foot by 8-foot. Two rigid boards of this size can be mounted on separate vacuum areas of the flatbed table. While one board is being printed, the other can be changed by the operator. Since the printer never has to stop printing for a media change, users can significantly increase their net print production on boards this size. With the Roll Media Option installed, users can print onto flexible media as well.

The Oce Arizona 350 XT printer uses four-colors of ink and offers a White Ink Option to expand applications options to non-white and clear surfaces. It is part of the popular and award-winning Oce Arizona Series of UV curable, flatbed printers. All models include Oce VariaDot™ imaging technology to deliver near-photographic image quality, and all share the same robust architecture and deliberate design that deliver the Oce values of quality, reliability, productivity and user-friendliness.
