FOSTER CITY, Calif., Oct. 16, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- EFI™ (Nasdaq:EFII), a world leader in customer-focused digital printing innovation, today announced that the latest versions of the company's broad portfolio of VUTEk®, EFI Wide Format and Jetrion® inkjet production printers, as well as integrated workflow and Fiery® digital front ends, will be on display at the SGIA EXPO 2012, October 18-20, 2012 in Las Vegas. These latest innovations from the company will help customers grow and become more efficient as many look to transform their business and take advantage of the growth areas in print. EFI is located in Booth #2413 at the show.

"Our key focus is providing our customers with the tools they need to maximize opportunity," said Scott Schinlever, senior vice president and general manager of EFI's Inkjet Solutions. "Our products help our customers expand their offerings with new, specialty, high-margin print applications, and though the industry is transitioning, our customers are growing their businesses with our innovations and technology."

Visitors to EFI's booth at SGIA can expect a robust display of the industry's largest sign and display graphic and digital label printing portfolios. EFI is featuring its latest additions, including the:

  • EFI VUTEk HS100 Pro, a revolutionary new high-speed digital UV press with the productivity of screen and image quality approaching offset.
