Hamburg, Germany, May 8, 2001 - Speaking at the European Rotogravure Association's Annual Meeting today, Barry Hibbert of httprint announced the launch of its Colour Management Module in a close co-operation with GretagMacbeth AG, the market leader in Colour Management Systems. This comprehensive module, many months in the making, covers the full provision of colour management including remote monitor calibration, remote proofing and other practical solutions, all supported over the Internet. httprint is also in final discussions with a leading press manufacturer, file transfer service providers and pre-flight check specialists to ensure a powerful and total digital workflow through its integrated web-enabled solutions. Mark Porter, President/CEO says: "This is a demonstration of httprint's ongoing commitment to practical eCommerce solutions and that they can be tailored to every aspect of the printing industry. Remote proofing and printing presses already offer the benefits of digital technology, which will be further enhanced through the application of httprint's licensed front-end colour management software." "Colour management is a key component of a reliable print procurement metaphor" says Francis Lamy, Vice President and General Manager of Digital Imaging at GretagMacbeth. "We believe that the GretagMacbeth's comprehensive suite of tools and systems, available at various price classes and scales - from workstation, to workgroup and the Internet - will enable httprint to deliver its services to a broader category of customers and set new benchmarks for integration and colour reliability in the Internet print procurement arena. We are excited at the dawn of this partnership, as it will enable GretagMacbeth 's technology and brand to reach a new scale of deployment."
