Océ VariaDot imaging technology

Océ VariaDot imaging technology ensures realistic, photo-like image quality. It delivers finer details and smoother gradients in highlight areas, as well as crisp colors in the mid tones, plus incredible density in shadows and areas of solid color. Images look far superior to those printed on a conventional, fixed-droplet, 6-color inkjet printer.

Advantages

  • High image quality due to:
    • The ability to vary the drop size to as little as 6 picoliters produces sharp images with smoother gradients and quarter-tones.
    • The ability to jet larger droplets up to 42 picoliters produces dense, uniform solids. The result is near-photographic image quality with sharpness only before seen at resolutions of 1,440 dpi or higher.
  • Efficient quality
    Places a varying amount of ink at every location, achieving finer coverage for smooth skin tones without excessive ink consumption.
  • Uses less Ink -> Lower cost
    Océ VariaDot imaging technology with four color inks uses up to 50 percent less ink compared to six color printers with fixed-droplet inkjet technology.
  • Higher resolution
    Type as small as 6 pt.- even white type on a dark background – is perfectly legible.

How the technology works

The Océ VariaDot imaging technology dispenses ink droplets that vary in size from 6 to 42 picoliters.
