Printing system technologies today have revolutionized how we generate documents through a combination of functionalities and user conveniences that are thoroughly modern. Today’s Editor’s Pick of the Week is Exhibit A.

Canon Solutions America's recently announced Océ ColorWave 500 large-format printing system is a smart, compact and eco-friendly unit that prints, copies and scans monochrome and color technical documents like CAD or GIS files as well as color graphics. It has the speed and efficiency that should make it a good fit for workgroups or as a central print room workhorse.

The Océ ColorWave 500 printing system incorporates many communications technology conveniences. For example, it’s cloud-ready, meaning you can submit a print job from your smartphone or tablet while in your PJs gulping down your morning coffee. You can print from and scan to a cloud application of your choice. The secure cloud connectivity is unlimited, and, admins take note, it supports WebDAV and third-party services like Amazon, DropBox or Google Drive.

The Océ ColorWave 500 printing system also incorporates many of the conventions from your daily life, making its learning curve next to nothing. On its right-hand side, for example, this system has a tablet-like device. From its tablet-like user interface, you can do neat stuff like preview live documents, check a document’s position and even futz with files in your personal inbox.

Also cool is all the automation the Océ ColorWave 500 printing system has. It automatically selects print modes, positions images and determines the media roll. When you copy or scan, it automatically identifies a document’s width and compensates for wrinkles.
