The Everest II utilizes patented retransfer printing process. The CMY panels are
first printed to a clear retransfer ribbon inside the printer. Then, using heat
and pressure, the printed image and a layer of the clear ribbon are applied to
the disc. The finished product emerges dry, durable, and ready to handle. The
final effect is amazing - a colorful, high resolution, disc with your choices of
photos, graphics, text, bar codes, you name it - in less than 60 seconds.
The pigmented ink on the Everest II ribbons is UV protected, ensuring vibrant
colors throughout the life of a disc. Everest II disc printing will pass any
sunshine or dashboard test you devise - a significant advantage over other disc
printers. And because the ink is not water based, you will never see a smeared
Everest II disc. Everest II printing also won't scratch off�you'll ruin the disc
before you can scratch the label. This enables discs to be used for commercial
distribution because Everest II printed discs can withstand the rigors of
day-to-day consumer handling.
The Everest II employs an innovative variable dot technology, where the dots
composing an image vary in size, resulting in sharper images with greater
detail. In addition, the MicroDry ink is actually a thermal resin that contains
pigment. This dry technology produces a dot with a fine edge. Consequently, dots
per inch, or DPI, does not accurately reflect the print resolution. A better
measure is lines per inch (LPI), and that is where Everest II truly shines.
Silk-screen printing typically produces 85-120 LPI, and magazines are generally
offset printed at 150 LPI. Everest II prints labels at 160 LPI�color or
monochrome printing that is better than silk-screen!
Full color printing for photo-realistic images, monocolor printing for special
effects or economy, white media, silver media - all are possible with Everest.
CMY print ribbons - these are the most popular choice for Everest printing.
They work well with silver or white media and can reproduce everything from
photos to graphics to sophisticated artwork.
CMY+W ribbon - This is a CMY ribbon with an additional white panel. This ribbon
can be used when maximum photographic reproduction is desired, particularly with
skin tones and faces. In addition, the CMY+W ribbon can be used with silver
media to print the full color spectrum and also provide silver highlights or
dropouts. And, if you really want to wow your audience, use the unique layering
capability of Everest printing to create discs with reflective highlights that
can easily be seen, but can't be copied or duplicated. This holographic effect
is an Everest exclusive.
