Regensdorf, Switzerland and New Windsor, NY; October 14, 2004 – Scanvec Amiable leading provider of complete professional software solutions from design to product for the sign making and large format digital printing industries, and GretagMacbeth, a worldwide technology leader in color management solutions for the graphic arts, creative, and photographic imaging markets, announce that they have entered into an extended partnership to offer the new GretagMacbeth Eye-One Display 2 as a component of Scanvec Amiable’s soft proofing solutions. The latest release of the successful FlexiSIGN-PRO and select PhotoPRINT products include soft proofing capabilities and therefore provide a strong competive edge to Scanvec Amiable. Eye-One Display 2 has recently been launched at Photokina in Cologne, Germany where it received outstanding ratings within its class, as well as in many recent industry forums.
“Soft proofing, although new to the sign market, is a critical factor in digital printing”, states Danny Harel, Vice President of Marketing for Scanvec Amiable. “As the recongnized leader in the sign and screen market space, we feel it is critical to anticipate our end users needs and provide them solutions now to help increase their bottom line. Therefore, the need for accurate color proofing will only grow and that is why we are moving forward with this focus.”
“Few applications employ the monitor profile created for Windows and used for soft proofing”, points our Mark Geeves, Vice President of Global Business Development. “Scanvec Amiable will not only pioneer this in the sign and screen markets, but they will join the few that support this workflow in the graphics market. This, combined with the signifcant advancements incorporated into the Eye-One Display 2 solution, such as user-defined luminance settings for best match of different monitors, and unmatched calibration speed, will be major advantages for soft proofing in screen and sign printing production.”
“GretagMacbeth and Scanvec Amiable have enjoyed a successful partnership since 2002 and we are excited to be able to extend this to include our newest member of the Eye-One family,” concludes Mark Geeves.
