Buyers Lab 2020 Pick Awards
Τhree models of Roland TrueVIS series wide-format inkjet printer/cutters have earned top honors in three categories of the 2020 Pick Awards from Keypoint Intelligence’s Buyers Laboratory. This marks the second year in a row that Roland DG has earned top honors. The previous TrueVIS VG series won two 2019 Pick Awards.
Taking first place in the Outstanding Gamut Expansion Eco-Solvent/Latex 54″/64″ Printer category was the VG2 series 8-color printer/cutters with Orange ink (CMYKLcLmLkOr). In the Outstanding Enhanced CMYK Eco-Solvent/Latex 54″/64″ Printer category, it was the VG2 series 8-color printer/cutters with White ink (CMYKLcLmLkWh). And in the Outstanding Entry-Level CMYK Eco-Solvent/Latex 54″/64″ Printer category, the just-launched SG2 series 4-color printer/cutters (CMYK) took the gold.
Buyers Lab’s Director of EMEA/Asia Research & Lab Services David Sweetnam summed up Roland DG’s TrueVIS Series printer/cutters as capable of reproducing stunning, vibrant graphics with photographic quality even at high speed. “It features a host of technical advantages to help create graphics that will truly captivate, and it is capable of printing smooth and balanced gradations across a wide color gamut, with accurate and reliable color reproduction,” he said.
“Models equipped with orange ink also exceeded the Adobe RGB color space in the orange region of the spectrum, which earned it a top score amongst the products tested,” Sweetnam added. “PANTONE color matching capabilities ensure superior color reproduction even with four-color models, which means color matching of corporate colors that had traditionally been considered difficult can now be done quickly and easily. Another point to note is that this high level of reproduction is achieved not only in high-quality print modes, but also in high-productivity print modes. The series is designed to make work easier for operators, and these printers deliver exceptionally high quality and practicality that are sure to meet the strict demands of professional users involved in the production of signs and graphics.”
