Roland’s New 30" VersaUV Inkjet Printer/Cutter Wins Prestigious DPI Product of the Year Award

Roland announced that the company’s new VersaUV LEC-300 30" UV inkjet printer/cutter was named 2008 
DPI Product of the Year for the Output Device Poster Category in SGIA’s annual competition.  Roland’s 
VersaWorks 3.0 RIP software earned a DPI Partner Award for the Output Device Poster Category for its role 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 Atlanta 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 VersaUV LEC-300 outperformed all competing 
products to take top honors.

"Each year, the DPI Product of the Year award recognizes products that deliver the highest levels of print 
quality," said Rick Scrimger, vice president and general manager for Roland.  "We are proud to receive this 
prestigious award.  The VersaUV LEC-300 is a groundbreaking new UV inkjet device, combining a new 
generation of LED-curable inks with renowned Roland print/cut technology for unmatched image quality and 
versatility."

DPI Product of the Year: VersaUV LEC-300

The revolutionary new VersaUV LEC-300 is the industry’s first wide-format UV inkjet printer/cutter and uses safe, 
low-heat LED lamps.  The LEC-300 prints CMYK + White + Clear on a wide range of substrates including foils, 
metallic and synthetic papers, BOPP, PE, and PET film for unmatched color, texture and dimension.  

At 30” wide, the LEC-300 is a highly versatile production tool that can be used for both short production runs and 
pre-press applications such as label proofs, packaging comps and prototypes.  Clear coat adds remarkably rich 
special effects ranging from high-gloss finishes for area highlights to custom-textured effects such as faux leather 
and crocodile embossing. 

New Roland ECO-UV inks produce graphics that are easy to handle and can be stretched across both curved 
surfaces and sharp edges without cracking.  Priced at $49,995, the VersaUV comes with VersaWorks 3.0 RIP 
software and Roland’s Two-Year Trouble-Free Warranty.  

DPI Partner Award: Roland VersaWorks 3.0 RIP Software 

Developed for the company’s wide-format inkjet devices, VersaWorks 3.0 combines powerful features with an 
easy-to-use interface for outstanding results print after print.  

Based on the latest Abobe CPSI engine (3018), VersaWorks 3.0 is more robust and precise than ever before 
and features advanced print server functions allowing users to manage up to four Roland devices simultaneously.  
VersaWorks 3.0 also offers support for Roland’s GX series cutters which allows professionals to manage stand-

PerfCut function enables users to produce precision perforated cut lines as well.

In addition, VersaWorks includes proven productivity tools such as the Roland Color System for easy, precise 
spot color matching, the Max Impact Preset for richer color contrast, and Variable Data Printing.  Other 
VersaWorks features include embedded ICC profile support, ink level adjustment tools, software proofing

Roland Receives SGIA Magnus Award

Award reflecting the company’s contributions to the SGIA organization and overall industry.  In particular, the 
award recognizes Roland’s 2007 - 2008 association membership campaign, an extensive outreach to Roland
