Xerox, EFI donate equipment to Cal Poly

March 14, 2006

Xerox Corporation and Electronic For Imaging, a Foster City, CA based company, have donated equipment to California Polytechnic Institute’s Graphic Communication Department to support education in design reproduction technology.

Xerox donated a DocuColor 3535 color copier-printer system valued at about $26,000, and EFI donated a Splash G3535 RIP worth $25,000. The gifts are examples of the Graphic Communication Department’s partners-in-education program that brings technology to the classroom.

“The design technologist must be as familiar with the language and role of the graphic designer and the people involved in reproducing and distributing the designs electronically,” says Harvey Levenson, Cal Poly Graphic Communication Department head. “The technologist must understand how to transform art and copy it into a form that will look good on a computer monitor and as a high quality printed piece. The Xerox DocuColor allows students to do just that.”

Lorraine Donegan, who coordinates Cal Poly’s design reproduction technology concentration, said, “It is with the support of Xerox and EFI that our students are able to work with the latest technology in digital printing and imaging. It brings the ‘real world’ into our classroom and laboratories.”
