 XEROX ADDS POSTSCRIPT, NETWORK PRINTING CAPABILITY
 TO DIGITAL COLOR COPIER
 ROCHESTER, N.Y., March 16 /PRNewswire/ -- The launch of an Adobe PostScript interpreter that enables the Xerox 5775 Digital Color Copier to print laser-quality color documents from personal computers and connected workstations was announced here today by Xerox Corporation (NYSE: XRX).
 When equipped with an optional Fiery controller from Electronics For Imaging (EFI) and a digital Xerox interface, the 5775 can be used as a full-color Adobe PostScript printer as well as a copier. EFI is a leading provider of color imaging technology based in San Bruno, Calif.
 Xerox will offer single-vendor sales and service for two customized PostScript interpreters manufactured by EFI and developed in partnership with Xerox: the fully featured EFI Fiery and EFI Fiery lite.
 Linked to either device, the 5775 produces multiple color pages at 7.5 prints per minute from electronic input, making it 50 percent faster than comparable full color PostScript copier/printers. Black-and-white documents are produced at 30 prints per minute.
 In its printing mode, the 5775 produces color pages from PostScript masters and TIFF files created on Apple Macintosh, IBM PC and PC-compatibles with software packages such as Aldus Pagemaker, Adobe Illustrator, Quark XPress, Ventura Publisher and others. The 5775 can be connected to computer networks via EtherTalk and LocalTalk. It also will support Novell Netware 3.11.
 "By integrating the 5775 with the EFI Fiery controllers, we are extending the productivity, reliability and operability of Xerox color document production to the desktop," said David T. Erwin, vice president, Worldwide Reprographics Marketing, Xerox Corporation.
 "Connectivity is critical to the future of the color document market," Erwin added. "The 5775 full-color copier/printer and future Xerox color products will spur growth in the color market by making it easier and more productive to add color to business documents in production and departmental environments."
 Efi Arazi, president and chairman of EFI, noted his company's association with Xerox represents an expansion of color reproduction options.
 "The convergence of color imaging and document production technologies depends upon color standards and compatibility. By tailoring our technology to support the goals of companies like Xerox, we are providing an integrated approach to color document creation and production," said Arazi.
 The fully featured EFI Fiery Controller equips the Xerox 5775 to print electronic files containing scanned photographic input with virtually continuous tone quality. The system is designed to produce full-color photos, tonal sweeps and gradations with resolution quality formerly associated with offset printing.
 The EFI Fiery lite is suited to color document applications such as business graphics that do not require continuous tone printing. The 5775 with Fiery lite produces halftone images at 400 by 400 dots-per-inch resolution, providing an economical alternative for printing color charts, illustrations and text. Fiery lite can be upgraded to full Fiery resolution with the installation of additional memory.
 The 5775 copier/printer is capable of printing Adobe PostScript files with no loss in resolution on 11 by 17-inch stock, as well as letter and legal sizes. With Fiery and Fiery lite, the 5775 can print on bond paper, transparencies and 90-pound index stock.
 Both Fiery and Fiery lite will be upgradable through software to support PostScript Level 2, an enhanced version of the PostScript language slated for future release by Adobe.
 As a copier/printer, the connected 5775 is designed with the reliability needed to handle additional color document volume from connected workstations. Recommended print and copy volume is up to 30,000 pages per month.
 Like the Xerox 5775, the EFI Fiery and Fiery lite will be covered by the Xerox Total Satisfaction Guarantee which states that any customer who is not satisfied with equipment covered under warranty or service contract can direct Xerox to replace it at no charge.
 The U.S. price of the full EFI Fiery Controller from Xerox is $37,500. The U.S. price of the EFI Fiery lite from Xerox is $20,000. The base-unit price of the Xerox 5775 Digital Color Copier is $46,500.
 The Fiery Controller for the Xerox 5775 will be available in the third quarter of 1992. Fiery lite will be available in the fourth quarter of 1992. Order taking begins in the second quarter of 1992 through the Xerox sales force.
