Tring, United Kingdom (PressExposure) May 18, 2009 -- The yearly ONÂ DEMAND Conference and Exposition encompasses, displays and examines all the latest technologies involved in the digital print production industry. Held in Pennsylvania, the ON DEMAND event Âis an opportunity for commercial printers, publishers and in-plant printing professionals to discuss print strategies and new print technologies. With an exposition hall displaying an impressive gathering of digital print technology and conferences held on topics such as sales and business deÂvelopment strategies, businesses management andÂ web to printÂ technologies, the ON DEMAND Event attracts print professionals from all over the World.Â
The ON DEMAND Conference and Exposition gives an insight into future printing industry developments, and this year saw the fourth Best in Show awards, recognising leaders in digital print technology and solutions. The prestigious ON DEMAND Best of Show awards are judged in ten categories by professionals from the graphic arts and printing community. All professionals chosen to judge the Best of Show awards have extensive knowledge of the print market and it's technologies and are accomplished within this field. This year the Canon imagePRESS 1110/1125/1135 were awarded an ON DEMAND Best of Show award in the Monochrome Digital Printing Equipment category.
To be eligible for the Best of Show awards the products need to have been released recently (after 2008 for the 2009 awards), be in use during the exhibition and be generally available at the time of the ON DEMAND Exposition and Conference. These awards recognise leading-edge vendors and their leading innovations.
The new black and white ÂimagePRESS models have been designed for print production environments needing a mid-volume production device that can deliver black and white prints to a very high standard and handle a diverse range of media. This impressive versatility and high quality output was recognised at the ON DEMAND 2009 Exposition and Conference.
After the success of the colour imagePRESS models, the imagePRESS 1110, 1125 and 1135 have been built using the same technology platform of the imagePRESS C7000VP range to introduce new levels of print quality, versatility and productivity into black and white mid-volume production. These imagePRESS models haÂve an extensive range of finishing options that can be custom configured to meet the needs of a variety of tasks.
Canon also received an honourable mention at ON DEMAND in the Colour Digital Equipment category for the imagePRESS C1+. The imagePRESS C1+ has proven to be a popular choice within graphic and creative markets, being the first device of it's size and speed to offer a clear toner station, helping to greatly expand impressive design features that canÂ be incluÂded in prints.
Canon were said Âto have been "thrilled and honoured" to receive the best in show award for the imagePRESS 1110/1125/1135 and an honourable mention for the imagePRESS C1+.
