We've added a way to see which products have the firmware that earned our Security seal. Any product that meets the criteria will have a small security icon next to it!
NEW PRODUCTION FEATURES: Using customer and manufacturer feedback, in addition to years of experience, our expert lab technicians reengineered the Production lab test to reflect the real-world applications of Production printing. More rigorous image quality analysis, testing across a wider range of media, and measuring the performance overall to make sure these machines stand up to the test of commercial printing.
In bliQ, not only can you read the new Lab Test Reports, but all of the test data is available in a new type of side-by-side comparison: user-adjustable speed charts, color gamut screenshots, and even Pantone color comparison.
ConfigIQ uses a robust rules-based engine that ensures a perfectly configured device every time. Our interactive visualization engine adds images of options and accessories, such as paper trays and finishers, to the base machine and updates the device’s dimensions as it is built.
