Adding a second color gives every one of your documents extra impact and immediacy. MZ series printers offer you all that extra power at just a single pass, letting you enjoy ease and convenience as you give your documents a professionally-finished look.
It's hard to imagine a document that doesn't look better in two colors. Advertising fliers and leaflets, announcements, newsletters, tickets, business applications such as letterheads, reports and name cards, lesson materials, invitations, coupons...the list just goes on and on. If you can print it, it's sure to look better with a second color.
RISO MZ series printers make two-color printing quick and easy, thanks to an advanced printer driver that virtually does the job for you.
Of course, you also enjoy manual control for those times when you want something the printer driver doesn't do for you automatically. And PC connectivity lets you use software you already know to create your originals, so you're always in familiar territory. There's no faster or easier way to carry out two-color printing than RISO MZ series printers.
Colour separation couldn't be simpler - just use the auto separation function in the printer driver and the job's done, with colours separated to match the print drums loaded in the printer. For example, if you have red and black drums, red and black tones in your image will be separated and sent to the respective drum, with other colours tones set to layering between red and black.
If you want more precise control, there's a manual mode that lets you specify individual colors for text/line art and photos on your original data and print with whichever drum you like.
Combination print allows you to do split print runs of documents such as school tests with the first half of the run showing only the questions in, for example, black and the second half of the print run showing questions in black and the answers in red.
You can even use color separation data from drawing and other applications.
You can preview the results of color separation on your PC monitor before you print to be sure the actual results will be exactly what you want. If you're not satisfied with the displayed separation, you can edit it by specifying precise areas and changing the color as you wish.
