OCE Introduces the ColorWAVE 600 Poster Printer (???)

I think I must be a little slow.

I don’t understand the difference between an OCE ColorWave 600 and an OCE ColorWave 600 “Poster Printer”. If my memory serves me correctly, OCE released the OCE ColorWave 600 system approximately 3 ½ years ago.

Is there a difference? And, if so, what’s the difference?

From a press release on

Océ North America introduces the Océ ColorWave 600 Poster Printer

Highly productive and cost-effective way to produce posters for digital print providers, retailers and offset printers

New Orleans, Oct. 19, 2011 – Océ, a Canon Group Company and an international leader in digital document management and printing for professionals, today announced that the Océ ColorWave® 600 Poster Printer is now available in the United States. This system produces short-term, retail-quality, brilliant color prints at production speeds. The Océ ColorWave 600 Poster Printer is on display in the Océ booth #1519 at the Specialty Graphic & Imaging Association's (SGIA) annual convention and exposition held October 19-21 in New Orleans.

Designed for cost-effective, high production poster printing, the Océ ColorWave 600 Poster Printer uses patented Océ CrystalPoint® imaging technology to produce instantly dry, water-resistant prints that are cut-to-size and ready for immediate use. Up to six rolls of media from 11 to 42 inches wide can be loaded into the printer at one time, so the system is ready to produce posters of varying widths or media types, eliminating the need to change media between jobs and the need to manually trim standard sized jobs.

Shifting the production of posters from traditional inkjet printers to the Océ ColorWave 600 Poster Printer reduces labor per print and media costs. Operators can be freed up for other tasks, since the system can run unattended at full production speed and, with the roll-to-sheet feature, no manual trimming is required for standard sized jobs. The Océ ColorWave 600 Poster Printer reduces media costs as well. It delivers high quality prints on a range of media from inexpensive uncoated bond paper to specialty media.
