    Hume Media Acquires First Xerox Brenva

    Hume Media Inc. of Toronto, Ont., becomes the first company to purchase the new Xerox Brenva HD inkjet press, which was unveiled in March 2016, along with the Trivor 2400 inkjet press. Targeting a production gap between high-end toner and low-end inkjet presses, the Xerox Brenva is a cut-sheet system that Xerox initially expects to disrupt light direct mail, transactional and book markets. The Brenva incorporates many of the paper-path components of the Xerox iGen press line, as well as an inline spectrophotometer to assist with calibration and profiling; object-oriented colour management; and a K-only mode to run as a monochrome press. >> Learn More…
