Friday, January 07, 2005
VANCOUVER, British Columbia--Jan. 5, 2005-- Creo Inc. and DuPont Imaging Technologies today announced that they are initiating new joint development and sales activities in color proofing. DuPont Imaging Technologies will deploy its well-recognized DuPont(TM) CromaNet(TM) color management, together with DuPont(TM) Cromalin ink and media, on the Creo Veris(TM) proofer. Work is underway to complete development of this Cromalin Veris proofing solution, which will be available through DuPont sales channels. "The Creo Multi-Drop Array(TM) imaging technology used on the Veris proofer delivers precise control of its 3 pL ink drops to produce superior-quality inkjet printing," explained Paolo A. Barbieri, global business director, DuPont Color Communication. "This innovation creates a premiere level of image quality and color accuracy that, when associated with the finest Cromalin color management and media, will offer a unique, high-level contract proofing solution. We are pleased to offer this solution to our customers." "This work builds on the strong relationship we have established with DuPont Imaging Technologies in the provision of thermal digital halftone proofing systems and consumables and the development of color filter manufacturing systems for the flat panel display industry," said Amos Michelson, Creo chief executive officer. "Both Creo and DuPont Imaging Technologies have a strong history of leveraging one another's technical excellence to deliver superior quality and value to our customers." The Veris proofer produces a controlled stream of precisely-formed and placed drops at 1500 x 1500 dpi, for high-quality, repeatable proofs that are accurate predictors of the final printed job. Creo will continue to sell Veris proofing solutions, complete with Creo ink and media and direct connectivity to Creo Prinergy and Brisque prepress workflows, through Creo sales channels. DuPont Imaging Technologies and Creo are also starting evaluation of a new version of the DuPont(TM) Cromalin b2 drop-on-demand inkjet proofer that will be integrated with Creo workflow, color management and consumables.
