Today Kodak continues to exceed industry standards in digital color
print with the introduction of the KODAK PROSPER 6000 Presses. With new
innovations in transport, drying and writing systems, combined with
advanced press management technology, the PROSPER 6000 Presses are a
completely new product offering that deliver high levels of reliability,
print speed and application flexibility. These enhancements will empower
customers in the book, commercial print and newspaper businesses—as well
as print service providers of data-driven print applications such as
direct mail and transaction—with tools for success.
The PROSPER 6000 Presses are powered by an advanced Intelligent Print
System (IPS) that continuously monitors, evaluates and adjusts
operations to ensure exceptional quality output. With the improved IPS,
the PROSPER 6000 Presses can monitor and instantly correct color
registration, delivering enhanced registration performance. The Presses’
writing system runs on Kodak’s newly formulated nanotechnology inks,
offering a greater color gamut and delivering print quality that rivals
offset output on a wide range of uncoated, coated and glossy papers.
Two PROSPER 6000 Models for Business Agility
The PROSPER 6000 Presses will be made available in two models:
KODAK PROSPER 6000C Press, ideal for
commercial print applications requiring high ink laydowns.
KODAK PROSPER 6000P Press, designed
specifically for publishing applications such as books and newspapers
which typically use light-weight paper and low-to-medium ink laydowns.
Both PROSPER 6000 Presses print at speeds of up to 1,000 feet, or 300
meters, per minute on matted and uncoated papers with a duty cycle of 90
million A4 top quality pages per month – up to 2.5 times faster than the
KODAK PROSPER 5000XLi Press. An enhanced drying capability allows
heavy-weight glossy and silk stock to be printed on the PROSPER 6000C
Press at 650 feet, or 200 meters, per minute.
“Today’s printers need tools that enable them to quickly respond to the
needs of their customers, as well as the needs of the business. From
book publishing to commercial and newspaper printing, the future of the
industry will revolve around digital solutions,” said Doug Edwards,
President, Digital Printing & Enterprise, Eastman Kodak Company. “The
PROSPER 6000 Presses deliver the highest industry performance coupled
with quality approaching 200 lpi, allowing customers to increase agility
so they can adapt to the changing demands of the business and better
respond to their customers.”
Aligning with its commitment to sustainability, Kodak is focused on
delivering imaging innovations to customers that provide greater product
value while enabling them to achieve their own sustainability goals.
With the combination of stellar quality, reliability and
industry-leading productivity, the PROSPER 6000 Presses produce saleable
prints at a low cost per page; approaching $0.005/A4 in color consumable
costs. The 6000 Presses provide customers with long inkjet head life,
high operational uptime and fast job set-up and make-ready time, helping
them save both time and money.
In today’s printing environment, businesses are investing in
technologies that lay the foundation for future success. In book
printing, printers are looking for ways to enhance revenue potential by
shifting to profitable short-run jobs. These print-on-demand jobs reduce
inventory costs and allow the printing of shorter runs on a just-in-time
basis to meet specific orders. KODAK PROSPER 6000 Presses make it
feasible and economical to print up to 200-lpi quality books at
production run lengths of up to 3,000 copies. In addition, it can
produce millions of offset-like pages month after month and reduce costs
associated with obsolescence and warehousing.
Printers in the commercial print space are looking to provide their
customers with better response rates for mailings. KODAK PROSPER 6000
Presses can produce high-gloss targeted direct mail pieces for an
average of 30 percent less than using electrophotographic (toner-based)
systems. These economics deliver greater return on marketing investments
as well as improved efficiency and profitability for production runs of
up to one million high-quality mail pieces.
Newspaper printers and publishers need to drive innovation and leverage
technology to gain a competitive advantage. KODAK PROSPER 6000 Presses
make it possible to reach new audiences more efficiently, while
streamlining print runs and adapting print editions to target different
readers. Digitally printed newspapers are the same size as offset
versions and have the same look and feel, offering a high-quality
appearance that is readily accepted by advertisers and readers. The 6000
Presses allow multiple newspaper titles to be produced in very short
runs. The right number of newspaper editions needed for each outlet can
be produced with sufficiently high productivity for medium-sized
markets: 15,000-20,000 newspapers.

In the world of DevOps there are ‘known good practices’ – aka ‘patterns’ – and ‘known bad practices’ – aka ‘anti-patterns.' Many of these patterns and anti-patterns have been developed from real world experience, especially by the early adopters of DevOps theory; but many are more feasible in theory than in practice, especially for more recent entrants to the DevOps scene.
In this power panel at @DevOpsSummit at 18th Cloud Expo, moderated by DevOps Conference Chair Andi Mann, panelists will dis...

We’ve worked with dozens of early adopters across numerous industries and will debunk common misperceptions, which starts with understanding that many of the connected products we’ll use over the next 5 years are already products, they’re just not yet connected. With an IoT product, time-in-market provides much more essential feedback than ever before. Innovation comes from what you do with the data that the connected product provides in order to enhance the customer experience and optimize busi...
