    QualityLogic Offers First Certified Page-Yield Test Service for Color and Photo Ink Cartridge Printers
    Dell Is First Printer Supplier to Use New Service
    MOORPARK,
    CA –  -2005 — QualityLogic (www.qualitylogic.com) is the first
    independent testing lab to offer a certified, standard, comprehensive
    page-yield test service for printers that use color or photo ink
    cartridges. The company began offering a similar service for color and
    mono toner printers earlier this year. Dell will be the first printer
    supplier to make extensive use of the complete service.
    Until now,
    printer manufacturers have tested the page yield of ink-cartridge
    printers using different criteria and methodologies. So, when
    prospective buyers try to compare the yield of one printer with that of
    another, they are comparing apples and oranges. This is a real problem
    because, over several years, the cost of cartridges is usually far more
    than the cost of the printer.
    QualityLogic’s page-yield test service
    is targeted at printer and cartridge manufacturers — and at large
    government agencies and corporate customers who need standard,
    independent verification of page yields to make multi-million-dollar
    buying decisions. The company is also providing a special “Certified
    Page Yield” logo that manufacturers can use in advertising and on
    packaging for their certified printers.
    “Every printer company in
    the world and their technology providers are long-time customers of
    ours. Our testing products and services have become the defacto
    standards for everything from printer performance to PDL conformance to
    fax interoperability,” said Dave Jollota, QualityLogic COO. “This gives
    us tremendous credibility as a third-party lab. If printers carry our
    ‘Certified Page Yield’ logo, the customer will know the yield
    information is accurate and comparable.”
    QualityLogic uses ISO yield
    test standards that have been adopted or are in development. Currently,
    an ISO mono-toner methodology has been adopted, and color-toner and
    color-inkjet methodologies are in balloting. ISO is also considering
    the development of a standard for photo ink printers. Where there are
    no ISO yield test methodologies, QualityLogic has developed
    methodologies, and will offer to share them with ISO. As new ISO
    methodologies are adopted, QualityLogic will modify their methodologies
    to match them, where necessary.
    QualityLogic has proprietary
    technology and processes that ensure efficient testing and superior
    quality in its page-yield test services. Its PageServe software, in
    conjunction with other tools and practices, tracks pages printed from
    every cartridge and every printer. Other proprietary processes,
    methods, tools and test documentation manage the test process to make
    sure it is fast and efficient, and at the same time, to ensure quality
    control.
    “Printer customers require standards or independent testing
    methods to compare specifications between manufacturers and make
    informed purchase decisions,” said Tony Mara, Dell’s senior manager of
    imaging and printing product marketing. “We chose QualityLogic because
    of their objective, data-driven approach, 20 years of focus on the
    printing industry, and their experience in developing other performance
    standards and PDL testing.”
