Patriot Day Blog!

Wide Format Without Representation is Tyranny!

Welcome to my first blog! The goal at WFWRT is to demystify some of the wide format technical jargon, and make these products more accessible to the dealer and end users. Most of this blog’s focus will be on Wide Format products including equipment, software, services and support.

Paradigm Imaging launches new products at ITEX & AIIM/On Demand Trade Shows!

Check out this links for scanner demos (especially document handling!) -

Paradigm Imaging Groups distribution products focus on professional archiving, color, scanning, short-medium volume printing, and workflow software. We will be looking at this market, but also as to how it complements the “print-focused” manufacturers: OCE, KIP, Xerox, Ricoh, and their OEM partners like Konica, Kyocera, etc. Our dealer channel typically represents one or more of the “print-focused” partners, as well as using our more flexible products to address more customers’ needs.

What kinds of issues do you face? Should you buy a laser/toner based system? Would an inkjet printer be better? What volumes can each technology handle? What are the true cost differences? Do you need to scan documents? How will you retrieve those files? Do you need color scanning? How about color printing? What is Postscript, really? Are you printing sets, and do you need concurrency? If the answer to your question of”does this require 220 volts”, and the answer is “220, 221, whatever it takes”….you know you need more information!

Paradigm Imaging has recently been at two main industry tradeshows, the ITEX show in Las Vegas, NV, and the AIIM/On Demand show in Philadelphia, PA. At these shows we launched the newest addition to our wide format suite of products, the ImagePRO Ci40 wide format scanner. This scanner series that is revolutionary in price and style. It breaks the price and performance barrier the market has been asking for! An end user can purchase a 40” monochrome scanner, for as low as $5364!

We are going to be aggressively advertising this promotion through full page ads in Wide Format Imaging and Image Source magazines, as well as email blasts to over a million (yes, that’s not a typo, over a million) qualified email addresses of contractors, construction companies, architects, engineers, and manufacturers!

There are 3 models: "M" (mono), "C" (color - med. speed) and "E" (color - fast). These scanners can be field upgraded with just an email! The Ci40 has the highest geometric accuracy of any scanner in its class!
Keep on the lookout for new blogs about our tradeshows, and the successful launch of these new scanners!
