October 11, 2011  By

Following the August announcement that the IDEAlliance has certified its first toner press, Canon has just achieved the same feat with its imagePRESS C7010VP series of toner machines. The Digital Press
Certification signifies that digital print systems comprised of a
digital press, a digital front end, and a specified paper stock conform
to GRACoL and its underlying G7 appearance matches within specific
colorimetric tolerances.

“Canon is pleased to have the imagePRESS C7010VP digital press
series recognized as an IDEAlliance Digital Press Certified printing
system,” said Sam Yoshida, Vice President and General Manager, Imaging
Systems Group, Canon U.S.A “This certification recognizes the
investment that Canon has made in developing a platform capable of
meeting the high image-quality standards of today’s production print

The Digital Press Certification verifies the stability of the press
in terms of variation within a page, and from page to page for a run
length of 1000 sheets, over a 24 hour period. By following the
IDEAlliance protocols and achieving the standard, the Canon imagePRESS
7010VP/C6010VP/C6010 with Fiery-based imagePRESS Servers
-A3200/A2200/A1200 with EFI Laser Proof Paper XF130 (Semimatt), were
placed in this elite certification category.


“The digital print market is poised for significant growth,” said
David Steinhardt, President and CEO of IDEAlliance. “This market
expansion has brought with it a critical need for a program to help
prospective buyers assess the capabilities of digital press systems. We
congratulate EFI and Canon for their leadership role in being among the
first to achieve IDEAlliance Digital Press Certification.”
