EMC offers rights and records management with Documentum update
EMC Corp. introduced EMC Documentum Information Rights Management (IRM) Services and EMC Documentum Records Manager 5.3, a pair of complementary content management software offerings that are now part of the EMC Documentum enterprise content management (ECM) platform. Both are designed to help companies respond to changing regulatory requirements while enabling more secure information sharing and disposal.

Documentum IRM Services combines EMC content management software with information rights management technology. The software gives content owners more control over information access and use, including the ability to restrict user access, set up watermarks, block printing or forwarding to unauthorized recipients and revoke the ability to open a file. It also maintains a complete audit trail of document activity and allows administrators to change user privileges at any time, including when files are copied or distributed outside the corporate firewall.

Documentum Records Manager 5.3 provides control over the lifecycle of corporate records. The software takes advantage of a service-oriented architecture (SOA), simplifying integration with other business applications and internal systems. As a result, customers have more flexibility in implementing the right level of records management functionality based on specific business needs.

EMC Documentum Information Rights Management Services and EMC Documentum Records Manager 5.3 are available immediately. Prices vary by configuration.

Canon introduces wide format printer
Canon Canada Inc. unveiled the company’s 60-in. large-format printer, the Canon imagePROGRAF iPF9000 designed for the corporate and Computer-Aided Design (CAD) markets.

The large format printer will provide a large colour gamut with a 12-colour inkset allowing images to achieve image permanence and longevity. The 12-colour inkset includes Cyan, Photo Cyan, Magenta, Photo Magenta, Yellow, Matte Black, Regular Black, Red, Green and Blue inks, as well as two shades of grey ink that help enable smooth colour gradation and help reduce metamerism when printing neutral and monochrome images.

The printer utilizes Canon’s Large Format Printer Common Architecture (L-COA) print controller and dual print heads. The two one-inch high-density print heads together boast 30,720 individual ink nozzles (2,560 for each colour) to produce a four picoliter ink droplet size with dedicated nozzles for each of the twelve colours. The print head design and microscopic droplet size will help the iPF9000 printer deliver image quality up to 2,400 x 1,200 dots per inch (dpi).

The imagePROGRAF iPF9000 is expected to be available through authorized Canon Canada dealers in late September, with manufacturer suggested retail prices starting at $17,995.
