Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, today
announced the launch of the Océ PlotWave 500 large format printing
system. Featuring the Océ ClearConnect touchscreen interface for fast
and easy walk-up printing, copying and scanning, the newest print system
offering from Canon is primed to make a significant impact on the
industry. Boasting the ability to print 10 D-size plots per minute with
virtually no warm-up delay, and cloud integration, these productive
capabilities enable users to print faster, share faster and finish
projects faster, making the Océ PlotWave 500 a labor-saving investment.
“Océ large format technical document printers are known for its high
productivity and simplicity for AEC, manufacturing, and design
engineering professionals,” said Junichi Yoshitake, senior vice
president and general manager, Business Imaging Solutions Group, Canon
U.S.A., Inc. “Based on the market demand for more flexible technical
document workflows, we have once again advanced our system capabilities
to help our customers become more competitive. The Océ PlotWave 500
combines high speed, productive printing, scanning, and copying via our
popular Océ Scanner Express II, all in a space-saving single footprint
configuration. It’s specially designed to help today’s CAD professionals
confidently meet their project challenges, including the ability to
easily scan to or print from the cloud for enhanced collaboration in
today’s fast-paced business world.”
A Compact Workhorse for the Office
The Océ PlotWave 500 large format printing system integrates Océ’s
exclusive Radiant Fusing technology, which provides quick warm-up
compared to a slow start-up of up to four minutes for conventional
printers. That can easily save an hour a day or more just in printing
The PlotWave 500 is Energy Star 2.0 compliant, and is designed and
constructed for commercial use with durable, hard-wearing components.
Takes the Work Out of Workflow
Submitting technical document files to a large format printer from
virtually anywhere can give professionals a big advantage when time is
tight and deadlines are looming. The Océ ClearConnect software suite
provides flexible ways to submit files to the printer. Users can print
from their desktop via Océ Publisher Select to manage complex document
sets. With additional mobile apps, CAD professionals can submit files
for printing from their Apple iOS and Android smartphones or tablets.
The Océ ClearConnect multi-touch user panel can help expedite technical
document workflow processes. Similar to using a smartphone or tablet
there should be a short learning curve. The simple layout, smart
kick-starts and detailed preview functions help users get their prints
fast, and help to lessen errors.
Offers a People-Friendly, Planet-Friendly Choice
Designed to work side-by-side with CAD professionals, the Océ PlotWave
500 is a people-friendly and planet-friendly choice. The system is
virtually silent in idle mode and generates only 52 db(A) of sound while
printing. In addition, the Océ PlotWave 500 provides the lowest energy
usage in its class thanks to Océ Radiant Fusing technology.
Easy for everyone
The Océ PlotWave 500 runs on the universal Océ software suite that looks
and works the same across all Océ wide format systems. Users can define
job settings and run tasks on the Océ ClearConnect multi-touch user
panel, driver or submission tool in the same way on all Océ color and
monochrome large format systems. This creates a uniform workflow across
the Océ PlotWave 750, Océ PlotWave 340/360, Océ ColorWave 650, and Océ
ColorWave 300 systems.

Fifty billion connected devices and still no winning protocols standards. HTTP, WebSockets, MQTT, and CoAP seem to be leading in the IoT protocol race at the moment but many more protocols are getting introduced on a regular basis. Each protocol has its pros and cons depending on the nature of the communications. Does there really need to be only one protocol to rule them all? Of course not.

Developing software for the Internet of Things (IoT) comes with its own set of challenges. Security, privacy, and unified standards are a few key issues. In addition, each IoT product is comprised of (at least) three separate application components: the software embedded in the device, the back-end service, and the mobile application for the end user’s controls. Each component is developed by a different team, using different technologies and practices, and deployed to a different stack/target –...

All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud.
