KODAK has announced the launch of its PROSPER 6000 for digital newspaper production.

With new innovations in transport, drying, and writing systems, combined with advanced press management technology, the PROSPER 6000 Presses are a completely new product offering that deliver high levels of reliability, print speed and application flexibility, says the company.

Kodak says that these enhancements will empower customers in the book, commercial print and newspaper businesses as well as print service providers of data-driven print applications such as direct mail and transaction with tools for success.

The PROSPER 6000 Presses are powered by an advanced Intelligent Print System (IPS) that continuously monitors, evaluates and adjusts operations to ensure exceptional quality output.

With the improved IPS, the PROSPER 6000 Presses can monitor and instantly correct colour registration, delivering enhanced registration performance.

The 6000 Press’s writing system runs on Kodak’s newly formulated nanotechnology inks, offering a greater color gamut and delivering print quality that rivals offset output on a wide range of uncoated, coated, and glossy papers.

Two PROSPER 6000 models for business agility

The PROSPER 6000 Presses will be made available in two models:

· KODAK PROSPER 6000C Press, ideal for commercial print applications requiring high-ink laydowns.

· KODAK PROSPER 6000P Press, designed specifically for publishing applications such as books and newspapers which typically use light weight paper and low to medium-ink laydowns.
