Eastman Kodak Co. on Monday launched a new digital press at an industry event in Switzerland.

The Prosper 5000XLi press was introduced at Hunkeler Innovation Days in Lucerne, Switzerland. The device pairs the high-speed continuous inkjet printing performance of the Prosper press platform with new press management technology, Intelligent Print System, that constantly monitors and adjusts settings to ensure the highest quality output, Kodak said.

The Prosper press, which uses the company’s stream technology, is a key to Kodak’s future as shifts its focus on commercial imaging.

Mercury Print Productions Inc. in Rochester has been beta testing the new press.

Kodak is unveiling new developments in the Prosper press platform and its commercial printing market portfolio through Friday at the event.
