Committing to increase processing speed and enhance flexibility
for print providers, Heidelberg announced today the worldwide
availability of a new system controller for the Digimaster Print
System product family.
The new V240 SCS (System Control Subsystem), a server-based
controller that processes print files and drives the printer, will
provide significant benefits for Digimaster system customers,
- Increased processor speed to move complex jobs through the
Digimaster print system more quickly.
- A server-based controller for higher reliability and
- Pre-loaded software that reduces installation and system
- Storage in a rack-mount cabinet to provide easier service
access to the controller and improve equipment-cabling
"The V240 SCS provides a wide range of new processing and
printing enhancements for the Digimaster print system," said
Leonard Christopher, vice president of workflow solutions,
Heidelberg's Digital Print Solution Center. "The controller's
increased processing speed and improved design will enable printing
customers to achieve higher production, flexibility and reliability
than ever before."
The new SCS platform will provide significant new benefits to
Digimaster system customers, including:
- 1 GHz processor speed. The new V240 SCS features three times
the processing speed of its predecessor, enabling the server to
process print files more quickly and to move jobs more rapidly
through the device. In addition, support for the Gigabit Ethernet
found in many customer environments enables higher-bandwidth jobs
over the Ethernet so they can get to the printer faster.
- Server-based reliability. The new controller leverages the
advantages inherent to a server-based system, including
reliability and availability for increased production.
- Rack-mount cabinet. The entire SCS subsystem now resides in a
rack-mount cabinet, enabling better service accessibility when
necessary. Now available in aesthetically matched cabinetry
design in Heidelberg trade-dress, the cabinet also features
additional space for future expansion needs.
- Pre-loaded software. The new system controller comes
pre-loaded with Print Production Release 5.02 software, which is
required for the V240 SCS. The pre-loaded software reduces
installation time and enables Digimaster system customers to be
up and running faster.
The new V240 SCS is now available worldwide. In addition, an
optional upgrade kit for all Digimaster 9110 and 9150i print
systems will be available to replace the older System Control
Subsystems. The upgrade kit includes Print Production Release 5.02
