 GCC TECHNOLOGIES ENTERS COLOR PRINTER
 MARKET WITH DYE SUBLIMATION PRINTER
 WALTHAM, Mass., Oct. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- GCC Technologies(R) today announced its first customer shipments of ColorTone(tm), a continuous tone 300 dpi dye-sublimation color printer. ColorTone is targeted at desktop publishing professionals requiring photorealistic outputs for proofs, comps and presentations. GCC has priced ColorTone at $10,999, for a fully configured printer including memory, internal hard drive and Ethernet.
 GCC has implemented a unique hardware design that optimizes ColorTone's flexibility, speed and performance across multiple networks and printing environments. The new color printer includes a 120 megabyte internal hard disk that supports virtual memory and font storage, as well as image buffering to ensure that ColorTone prints at peak performance. The use of an internal hard disk also provides flexibility for implementing future software enhancements, such as advanced levels of PostScript.
 GCC has designed its own proprietary controller centered around an AMD (Advanced Micro Devices(R)) 29050 series RISC-based processor and a PostScript compatible interpreter. The 29050 makes ColorTone one of the fastest dye sublimation printers currently available. In addition, ColorTone comes standard with 16 megabytes of RAM. The combination of 16MB of RAM, an internal hard disk, and an exclusive GCC controller design allows customers to begin using ColorTone right out of the box, without purchasing additional hardware.
 "The color printer market is expanding with new technologies at a rapid pace. We're pleased to bring forward a new and innovative approach to the hardware and software design for color printers. By combining the engineering talents of GCC, AMD, and Phoenix, we're able to bring to the market one of the most advanced color printer technologies in this price range," stated Jim Herrmann, product manager for GCC's color product line.
 GCC will offer ColorTone through an Authorized ColorTone Reseller network in the U.S., Canada, the U.K. and throughout Europe. GCC will also offer ColorTone direct to U.S. customers via a toll-free telephone number, 800-422-7777. Technical support will be provided through GCC's Customer Service hotline, 800-231-1570, as well as through on-line services such as AppleLink(R), CompuServe, America On-Line, and Genie. Customer Service hours are weekdays from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. (eastern time), and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. (eastern time).
