Irvine, CA, October 31, 2007 - Roland announced that the company’s new SOLJET PRO III XJ-640 64" inkjet 
printer was named DPI Product of the Year for the Output Device Poster Category in SGIA’s annual competition.  
Roland’s VersaWorks 2.2 RIP software and SCM-GPPG Glossy Photobase Paper earned DPI Partner Awards 
for the Output Device Poster Category as key components in producing the winning print.

Entries for the DPI Product of the Year competition were judged on the Expo show floor at the recent SGIA 
conference in Orlando by a team of digital imaging professionals. In the Output Device category, entrants were 
required to submit a test print produced from the nominated device. The image, designed by SGIA, was 
intended to challenge the output device’s capabilities. Roland’s SOLJET PRO III XJ-640 outperformed all 
competitive products to take top honors.
