After Xerox acquired the Tektronix Color Printing and Imaging Division in 2000, the solid ink technology became part of the Xerox line of office printing and imaging products. color printer A printer that prints in color using three (CMY) or four (CMYK) colors of ink, toner or dye. Four color ribbons have been used in dot matrix printers, but these are rare today. See color laser printer and printer. incorporating Peerless' PeerlessPrint(R)5C printer language, an emulation of HP's PCL (Printer Command Language) The page description language for HP LaserJet printers. It has become a de facto standard used in many printers and typesetters. PCL Level 5, introduced with the LaserJet III in 1990, also supports Compugraphic's Intellifont scalable fonts. 5c.

"Xerox offers a long and successful history of design and sales of high-quality color printers," said Ron Davis, Peerless vice president of sales. "By incorporating the PeerlessPrint(R) language into their products, the company can continue to bring cost-effective color printing “colour separation” redirects here. For other uses, see colour-separation overlay.
Color printing is the reproduction of an image or text in color (as opposed to simpler black and white or monochrome printing). solutions to market, including the new Phaser 850."
Xerox adds the Phaser 850 to its lineup of PeerlessPrint(R)5C-supported color printers, including the Phaser 740 and Phaser 780 color lasers, to ensure the highest degree of compatibility in networked environments. The company selected PeerlessPrint(R)5C to provide robust compatibility with HP's PCL 5c printing language. PeerlessPrint(R) technology is platform-independent and supports multiple engine technologies, including color laser and solid ink. PeerlessPrint(R)5C provides OEMs with a proven, compatible product, while integrating advanced features that provide critical product differentiation Product Differentiation

The Phaser 850 is Xerox' newest generation of solid ink color printers. The Phaser 850 will replace the earlier solid ink offering, the Phaser 840, and offers higher resolutions ranging from 800 to 1200 dots-per-inch and speeds from 3.5 to 14 pages-per-minute. Equipped with optional high-capacity input trays and automatic duplexing, plus standard 10/100BaseT networking, Adobe PostScript(R) and PeerlessPrint(R)5C, the Phaser 850 is well-positioned for corporate office color applications.
PeerlessPrint(R) Provides Cost-Effective Alternatives to
HP Printer Languages for Color and Monochrome Printers
Since 1994, Peerless has been the leading provider of PCL language emulations for the printer market. The company developed both the first variable-resolution PCL 5 emulation and the first PCL 5 emulation to support an output resolution of 600dpi in 1991. In 1994, PeerlessPrint(R)5E was the first emulation to offer full compatibility with HP's LaserJet 4 by incorporating complete PCL 5e and printer job language (PJL (Printer Job Language) A printer command language from HP that adds control for individual print jobs and also includes the ability to set printer default settings. See PCL. ) support. With PeerlessPrint(R)5C, Peerless extended the PeerlessPrint(R) family to support the color capable PCL 5c language, and most recently, PeerlessPrint(R)6 has allowed OEMs to provide full compatibility with HP's PCL 6 printing language both on color and monochrome systems.

About Peerless Systems Corporation
Peerless Systems is a leading provider of software-based embedded imaging systems to original equipment manufacturers of digital document products. Digital document products include printers, copiers, fax machines, scanners and color products, as well as multifunction products that perform a combination of these imaging functions. In order to process digital text and graphics, digital document products rely on a core set of imaging software and supporting electronics, collectively known as an embedded imaging system. Embedded networking systems supply the core software technologies to digital document products that enable them to communicate over local area networks and the Internet.
The Peerless family of products and engineering services provides advanced embedded imaging technologies that enable the Company's OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) The rebranding of equipment and selling it. The term initially referred to the company that made the products (the "original" manufacturer), but eventually became widely used to refer to the organization that buys the products and customers to develop digital printers, copiers and multifunction products quickly and cost-effectively.
