October 2020 – PHOENIX – Mutoh America, Inc., an industry leader in wide-format printers, was recently honored with six PRINTING United Alliance Product of the Year awards, making 2020 the ninth consecutive year of Mutoh winning one or more awards. Open to all PRINTING United Alliance supplier members, the Product of the Year competition evaluates products that are, or will be, available for sale in 2020. A highly qualified panel of judges from across the printing industry evaluated the annual contest’s 200+ entries in more than 85 categories spanning analog, digital, output and non-output technologies.
Mutoh has proudly won six new awards in the following output categories this year:–

Output devices are judged based on reports generated by measuring color charts and then comparing to industry specifications. “This is the only competition I know of that reports on the percentage of Adobe RGB a printer can hit,” said Ray Weiss, Director of Digital Print Programs, PRINTING United Alliance. “Some of the categories were decided by tenths of a point so fierce was the competition this year.”
“I couldn’t be prouder of our best in class printers that are made in Japan”, states Brian Phipps, President and General Manager or Mutoh America, “Mutoh continues to demonstrate its commitment to the highest quality standards in the industry. Winning six more awards this year is just icing on the cake for us and our partners.”
