Xanté CEO to Keynote Toner Conference
Robert C. Ross Jr., CEO and founder of Xanté, will be the keynote speaker for The Tiara Group Toners 2014 Conference in Santa Barbara, Calif., from June 2-4. In his keynote address, Ross will also represent Memjet, the provider of the high-speed engines that drive Xanté wide format output devices.
The Toners Conference, produced by The Tiara Group in partnership with the Graphic Communication Institute at Cal Poly (GrCI), has been held annually since 1984. For the first time since its beginnings, the conference is featuring presentations by OEMs and addressing production printing. There will also be presentations on the impact and future of inkjet printing in the production printing market.
Kevin Shimamoto, VP sales & marketing for Memjet’s wide-format products, will participate in an OEM panel, a special feature of the conference. Other OEMs and their dealers participating include EFI, HP, Konica Minolta, Lexmark, Xerox, and Ultrex.
“Production digital printing is at the core of the future of the printing industry, and the role of inkjet must be addressed in any conversation on toner printing," notes Harvey Levenson, Director of the GrC. "Robert Ross is the perfect keynote speaker for this conference because his experience in developing production printing technology using one of the fastest print engines available, Memjet, points to a future that those involved in toner and inkjet media, and printing systems, must know about. The conference addresses each of these areas.”
