New Fiery Servers Provide Exceptional Performance and Quality for the New Generation of Ricoh Digital Presses

FREMONT, Calif., March 20, 2017 ­ Electronics For Imaging (Nasdaq: EFII) has launched a pair of new high-performance digital front ends (DFEs) based on the latest Fiery FS200 Pro platform for driving Ricoh¹s next-generation print engines, the RICOH Pro C5200s and C5210s.

“Fiery technology gives our customers exceptional productivity results with the RICOH Pro C5200s and C5210s, producing a wider range of projects on an impressive variety of media,” said John Fulena, Vice President, Production Printing Business Group, Ricoh USA, Inc. “The proven combination of RICOH Pro performance and Fiery digital print workflow efficiency delivers high-quality, high-volume output.”

Both the embedded Fiery E-24B DFE and the external Fiery E-44B DFE can process complex and graphic-rich files with EFI¹s proprietary Fiery SmartRIP technology to improve throughput and production efficiency. The Fiery E-44B offers superior performance and faster processing times that makes it the top choice for high-volume print operations that require unmatched output quality and maximum engine utilization. 

“These new Fiery DFEs allow users to incorporate advanced color and imaging management for ‘no compromise’ results with consistent, high-quality output every time,” said John Henze, vice president of Fiery marketing at EFI. “With Fiery E-44B DFE, users also get the advantage of EFI¹s innovative, proprietary Dynamic HD Text and Graphics feature for accurate, high-quality reproduction of ultra-thin lines and fine details in text.”

Both new Fiery DFEs delivers superior, out-of-the-box production tools. Users are able to centralize job management and streamline production with the Fiery Command WorkStation interface. Server presets are easy to set up and can be shared with the users throughout a print facility to further increase productivity. 

Plus, the Fiery E-44B DFE makes it easy for users to integrate print production workflow with EFI management information systems, web-to-print software, and popular prepress workflows to achieve business-wide integration and higher efficiency. Customers can also streamline job layout with the instant visual preview and advanced make-ready capabilities of the optional Fiery Impose and Fiery JobMaster. Adding the Fiery Graphic Arts Package, Premium Edition lets users troubleshoot digital jobs before printing, so jobs print right the first time to minimize waste and rework.

These two new DFEs are available now from Ricoh and authorized Ricoh resellers. For more information about EFI Fiery Driven digital production printing, visit or contact 800-875-7117.
