Paradigm Imaging Group Announces the

EIS Ultima II Multi-Function Scanner, Copier and Print Solution


Costa Mesa, CA – November 9, 2005 – Paradigm Imaging Group, a leading supplier of large-format scanning, printing and document archiving solutions, has introduced its newest addition to the EIS (Express Imaging Station) family of large-format multi-function systems, the EIS Ultima II Series.

The EIS Ultima II is a single-footprint large format color multi-function, scan, copy and print system designed for a broad range of applications including Facility Management, CAD, GIS and Reprographics. The new EIS Ultima II series includes a choice of four different 42” color scanner models, a high-performance Rocket™ scan/print controller, touch-panel LCD monitor and a new 44” wide print engine.

What distinguishes the new EIS Ultima II from the previous EIS Ultima is the newly integrated Canon imagePROGRAF W8400 printer which extends printer functionality and increases the print width from 36” to 44”. The Canon W8400 printer utilizes a pigment based, six-plus-one ink system (interchangeable matte black ink), a 4-picoliter ink droplet size, and 2400 x 1200 resolution which produces exceptional quality output quickly and easily.

The integrated high-performance Rocket™ controller houses a 2.8 GHz Pentium® 4 processor with 1GB DDR and 80 GB hard drive, and is custom designed for delivering the resources required to seamlessly process large graphic files and other documents. The Scanning Arts controller software provides an easy-to-use interface with large control buttons on its main control screen that provide the feel and functionality similar to that of an office copier.  

The EIS Ultima II, as an all-in-one configuration, provides a complete solution for scanning, copying, printing and emailing of large-format documents and graphics, while the EIS Flex offers the flexibility of integrating with an existing printer (HP® DesignJet® 500, 800 and others). Both Ultima II and Flex systems feature space-saving single footprint architecture, which ergonomically organizes all system components, and offer a user-friendly, intuitive operation via touch panel control. The EIS Solo provides the same functionality as the Ultima II and Flex systems in a standalone format, with the system controller provided in a desktop configuration, and the ability to use existing network printers for output. The EIS system’s US list price ranges from $16,995 to $29,995, depending on the system configurations. All EIS systems are covered by 1 to 3-year limited warranty (depending on the configurations and components) and full 3-year on-site warranty is optionally available.
