Mutoh ValueJet 1608 Wins DPI Product of the Year Award
Mutoh America has won the DPI Product of the Year Competition. The award was received at the SGIA 2008
show in Atlanta for the ValueJet 1608-64 Hybrid printer.
The ValueJet 1608-64" Hybrid printer took top honors in the "rigid substrate (solvent ink)" category, meaning
those solvent machines capable of printing on rigid materials. A panel of judges anonymously evaluated
submissions based on criteria that include image, color, detail and tonality.
The prize winning image was printed by the ValueJet 1608-64" Hybrid printer with Mutoh's new EPA recognized
MUBIO Inks, on Gilman Foamboard using SAi's Mutoh Edition 6V2 PhotoPrint Software. The ValueJet 1608-64"
Hybrid printer is safe to operate without ventilation and produces high-resolution, outdoor durable images on a
variety of rigid and roll-to-roll media.
"We are proud to showcase our award winning work, and extremely thrilled to have won! The image chosen to
print for the DPI competition provided challenging colors and test patterns which highlighted the optimal abilities
of the ValueJet 1608-64" Hybrid printer," said Randy Rickert, general manager of Mutoh America.
This competition honors the finest digital imaging products, those that clearly provide a new definition of industry
technology and recognizes outstanding products that will have a major beneficial impact on the industry in
2009. This award presented to the ValueJet 1608-64" Hybrid printer is recognition of our technological
advancements, ink development and application of innovative ideas through feedback received from our
customers and partners.
