Roland DG Claims a Pair of BLI 2024 Wide Format Pick Awards from Keypoint Intelligence



Fairfield, NJ – Keypoint Intelligence, the world’s foremost market research firm and independent evaluator of print and smart technology hardware, software, and services, announces that the Roland DG has won two Buyers Lab (BLI) 2024 Wide Format Pick Awards. Wide Format Picks from Keypoint Intelligence acknowledge the products that gave the best performances in field testing over the previous year.


Roland DG TrueVIS AP-640

Outstanding Entry-Level CMYK Eco-Solvent/Latex 54"/64" Printer


Roland DG TrueVIS LG-640

Outstanding UV 54"/64" Printer


“The AP-640 and LG-640 are great additions to the Roland TrueVIS family that has, for years, performed to a very high standard in our exhaustive test program,” said David Sweetnam, Keypoint Intelligence’s Director of EMEA/Asia Research & Lab Services. “Both devices delivered the same excellent PANTONE spot-color-matching performance, while a large color gamut helps deliver on a range of image reproduction demands. Dimensional and colour stability over our more-demanding wallpaper test was also very impressive, with both earning our highest 5-star rating, which demands dimensional accuracy of over 99.9% and colour variation of less than DeltaE00 2.0.”


Joe Tischner, Wide Format Analyst at Keypoint Intelligence, commented, “There is no learning curve to move from Roland’s eco-solvent devices to its AP-640 latex/resin or LG-640 UV device—a great benefit in multi-ink formula work environments. Productivity was very good on both devices, further aided by the perforated cutter option that allows the operator to produce a production run for a client straight onto a take-up roll, with quick separation at the client site.”


Tony Miller, President of Roland DG’s Global Sales and Marketing Division, said, “We are very proud that our new technologies have been highly recognized by Keypoint Intelligence and received Pick Awards. We are confident that these results will be useful references for those considering the introduction of new devices, and that the TrueVIS series will fully meet the high expectations of our customers. We will continue to develop even better products and provide people around the world with the joy of creation and the excitement that comes from it.”
