Roland DG has announced a series of Value-Up updates for their VersaCAMM   VP-300 and VP-540 printers as well as the AdvancedJET AJ-740 and AJ-1000 series of printers.

Roland DG state that these updates will increase production print throughput anywhere from 20% to 80% whilst providing higher print quality on a wider range of substrates.


Both product ranges will be updated free* of charge to the end user as part of Roland DG’s ongoing worldwide Value-Up programmes. The Value-Up programme has been encompassed within the new international Roland DG Care initiative that was launched locally in November 2008.  Both Roland DG Care and Value-UP have been created to expand upon and emphasise the level of aftercare that Roland DG provides post purchase.  Marc Margetts, Managing Director Roland DG Australia said “Value-Up provides our end users with practicable benefits to their daily use of our products and demonstrates in a tangible manner the benefits of their investment with Roland DG products.  We are very happy to be able to keep releasing these popular and valued programmes to our customers”.

Free Value-Up Campaign for the VersaCAMM VP-540/VP-300 Printer/Cutters

VersaCAMM VP Series is designed from the ground up to enhance the productivity of creative professionals everywhere and make it easier and faster than ever to produce durable, professional-quality posters, banners, POP displays, labels, decals, vehicle and floor graphics, heat transfers for apparel and more.

With the Value-Up Campaign, Roland's revolutionary Intelligent Pass Control technology introduced in the company’s SOLJET PRO III Series is now available for VersaCAMM VP’s.  Roland Intelligent Pass Control provides smoother gradations and flawless solid colors with optimized dot placement and ink droplet density in all print modes.  It also increases throughput up to 80% in standard print mode on banner media and more than 50% on vinyl.*  These increases in speed and quality enable shops to meet the demands of today’s customers in an increasingly competitive marketplace.


 *Increased to 9.4 m2/hr (101.2 sqft/hr) on banner and 8 m2/h (86.1 sqft/hr) on vinyl, compared to 5.2 m2/hr (55.98 sqft/hr) on banner and vinyl without Roland Intelligent Pass Control

VP-540/VP-300 customers can download their free upgrade kit including Roland VersaWorks 3.1 by registering online at To help Roland better serve them in the future with new, innovative technologies and solutions, customers will be asked to participate in a short market survey.

Free* Value-Up Campaign for the AdvancedJET AJ-1000/AJ-740 Printers

Designed for high-volume printing and rush jobs including billboards, banners, fleet and vehicle graphics, the AdvancedJET delivers brilliant six-color CMYK+LcLm graphics at an impressive maximum print speed of 90m2/h (968 sqft/hr).

The Value Up for AJ series includes upgrade of:

Head Protection plates offering increased protection for AdvancedJET print heads to prevent damage from media jams.
Roland VersaWorks update version 3.1, including RIPC for VP series, increasing productivity, print quality and providing a wider media coverage.
Firmware update version 4.0 - A new feed calibration pattern
The addition of Roland Intelligent Pass Control allows the AJ-1000 and AJ-740 to produce sharp, vivid and solid images flawlessly for outdoor graphics as well as smoother gradations with virtually no banding while achieving up to 125%^ higher productivity for banner printing in standard print mode.  For example, an upgraded AdvancedJET AJ-1000 can print five rolls of banner measuring 2.5m (8.2‘) wide by 50m (164’) long  in standard print mode (bi-direction) in the time it took the previous model to print just four rolls.   In addition, feed calibration can be adjusted immediately at any time during the printing process to reduce media waste.

^ Increased to 20 m2/hr (215.31sqft/hr) from 16 m2/hr (172.25 sqft/hr) for uni-direction, and to 30 m2/hr (322.97 sqft/hr) from 24 m2/hr (258.37 sqft/hr) for bi-direction.

Through the Value-Up Campaign, Roland will add more ICC profiles for 3rd party media to meet the growing variety of applications being addressed by these grand format devices.

All AJ Users will be contacted once registered and the plates will be installed by their Authorised Roland Dealer or Service Agent at their next scheduled service. * Alternatively, end users can organise for a service technician to visit prior to the next service, however this may attract a charge.
