• OKI ColorPainter M-64s wins Keypoint Intelligence's Buyers Lab award

        • OKI Systems UK has announced that its ColorPainter M-64s wide-format printer was awarded the Outstanding ‘Enhanced’ CMYK Eco-solvent/Latex 54"/64" Printer Pick Award, by Keypoint Intelligence's Buyers Lab (BLI). Competing against printers in Europe and the USA, the award is the result of months of hands-on evaluations performed by expert teams of analysts and lab technicians at BLI.

          Since launching the Eco-Solvent/Latex test program in 2016, BLI has tested a host of Eco-Solvent and Latex 54"/64" devices, presenting its inaugural awards to the best performing products in four categories: Entry level CMYK Eco-solvent, Enhanced CMYK Eco-solvent, High Production CMYK Eco-solvent and Gamut Expansion Eco-solvent.

          The award was presented at the 2017 SGIA Expo in New Orleans, Louisiana, where the ColorPainter's print technologies, industrial-grade print heads and low-odour, eco-solvent ink was on display, producing vibrant, glossy graphics with exceptional colour saturation and outdoor durability. Locally the award was presented to OKI at The Print Show in October 2017.

          David Sweetnam, Director of BLI's Research and Lab Services said, “the OKI ColorPainter M-64s was the clear winner in the 'enhanced' CMYK category. With a strong performance across multiple categories, the device's CP Manager garnered special commendation for its comprehensive functionality and usability helping it achieve Five Star status for Device Management and Monitoring.”

          The ColorPainter M-64s by OKI brings to the wide-format print market, drive efficient and high-quality graphic output. High-viscosity, low-odour, eco-solvent SX inks improve working environments, achieve a wide colour gamut and high-density colours resulting in long-lasting print images with lower operating costs, making it ideal for a broad range of interior and exterior applications from vehicle wraps to backlit displays.

          Andrew Hall, Marketing Manager, OKI Systems UK added, “we are thrilled that BLI has recognised the capabilities of the ColorPainter M-64s with an 'excellent' rating for highest quality on cast vinyl media across all devices. Designed and engineered for the rigors of mid-to-high-volume print environments, winning this award, and outperforming our competitors, is a testament to the innovation the ColorPainter has brought to the wide-format print market. To be awarded with an additional Five Star status in device management/monitoring makes the win even more gratifying.”
