RISO Partners with EFI to Offer Fiery for ComColor GD Printers
RISO customers have a new range of capabilities for high-volume, high-performance, variable data print production with the release of the first EFI Fiery digital front end (DFE) for RISO printers. The new ComColor Express FS2000C from Electronics For Imaging (EFI) provides RISO customers entry into high-speed, high-volume color inkjet printing with the market advantages print professionals around the world gain using Fiery DFE technology and the Fiery Command WorkStation job management interface.
Customers gain a new, high-quality and affordable means to address quick-turnaround requirements for their cost-effective, high-speed RISO ComColor printers. Running on the latest, award-winning Fiery FS200 Pro platform, the new DFE provides centralized job and color management that unleashes the full potential of RISO’s affordable high-speed color systems, running at 160 pages per minute. Leveraging the ubiquitous Fiery Command WorkStation, users can manage multiple printers or an entire shop from a single point for more streamlined and efficient operation, even in multi-vendor printing environments.
“Adding ComColorExpress FS2000C powered by EFI Fiery to our top-of-the-line ComColor GD series will bring significant added value for RISO customers,” said Andre D’Urbano, RISO’s director of strategic business development. “We are especially pleased with the ease of use this solution provides, which gives operators the ability to perform even the most complex tasks with a fast learning curve.”
Color Management, Visual Makeready Shorten Learning Curves
RISO customers now have access to advanced Fiery make-ready options such as Fiery Impose, Compose, and JobMaster that enable operators to transform complex job preparation tasks into simple steps. The visual user interface creates a fast learning curve for customers to better manage even the most complex jobs without waste, including booklets, business cards, or manuals with custom bleed-edge tabs.
RISO customers will also benefit from a wide range of workflow and productivity features for high operational efficiency, including Fiery JobFlow Base for automation of job preparation and Fiery Hot Folders for streamlined, drag-and-drop file printing workflows. Customers can also use the server to integrate their digital printing operations with EFI’s Digital StoreFront Web-to-print and Productivity Suite MIS/ERP workflows.
Color management in the Fiery DFE along with tools available in the optional Fiery Color Profiler Suite maintain consistent colors throughout and between print runs. Operators can easily correct brand colors such as corporate logos with Fiery Spot-On and enhance photos in a click with Fiery Image Enhance Visual Editor.
“By adding the Fiery DFE technology to the unique ComColor GD offering, RISO is helping customers efficiently print higher-quality documents without compromise,” said John Henze, vice president of Fiery marketing at EFI.

The RISO ComColor GD with the Fiery DFE offers customers an ideal solution for an affordable means of producing high-volume transactional print, direct mail, education course materials, manuals, newsletters, all size envelopes and more with a low capital investment and low running costs. This new offering gives users a great first step into high-volume color printing, including efficient variable data printing, and comes with a wide range of finishing accessories for stitching, booklet making, and perfect binding, as well as a complete solution for printing and folding a mailing envelope along with its contents.
