The North and Latin America debut of 3 new models in the Xanté (Mobile, AL) Ilumina series will take place in Xanté booth 1008 at Graphics of the Americas (GOA), February 25 - 27 at the Miami Beach Convention Center.  

Xanté adds the heavy-duty Ilumina Digital Envelope Press GT, high-end Ilumina Digital Production Press GT, and entry level Ilumina GL 330 to the Ilumina series. The new Ilumina models coincide with a new naming scheme for the full range of Ilumina products, with GL signifying appropriateness for mid-volume shops, and GT referring to the more powerful processors and controllers driving higher volume applications with more demanding requirements.   
Key to the two new higher-end Ilumina series is the addition of EFI controllers and a new platform supporting 1,200 x 1,200-dpi resolution. Says Xanté CEO Robert Ross, "We've broken through perceived barriers in the small to mid-size part of the market, bringing noticeably unique, high quality and reliability to quick printers and smaller shops with limited budgets. The Ilumina GL 330 is a perfect example of this. Now we're blurring the lines a bit higher up in the food chain, making it possible for larger shops to deliver excellent color jobs quickly, at significantly lower cost than they have anticipated, with our more powerful GT models."
