FUJIFILM, X-Rite Partner to Take Taskero Universe Press-side

Friday, May 30, 2008

Press release from the issuing company

(May 29, 2008) FUJIFILM Corporation and X-Rite Incorporated have come together to bring the power of Taskero Universe - a suite of performance analysis tools - from the pre-press area and into the pressroom. By combining the power of X-Rite's IntelliTrax - the industry's fastest, automated color measurement system for press-side color control - with Taskero Universe's enterprise

capabilities, FUJIFILM and X-Rite will deliver a much needed solution for the printing market that enables users to monitor hardware performance from pre-press through to the pressroom, while getting real-time color measurement feedback and allowing adjustments to be made on press.

"X-Rite devices have a reputation for precision and ease of use, and many printers in the industry have approached Fujifilm to make this newest development a reality," said Don Schroeder, FUJIFILM's director of solutions development. "We've worked closely with X-Rite in developing Taskero Universe from the start and in collecting information that is of value for our customers; it's natural that we work with X-Rite again as we expand Taskero Universe from the prepress arena into the pressroom."

The integration of Taskero Universe with X-Rite's IntelliTrax automated color measurement system is currently underway and is expected to be available to customers in beta by late summer. Once the technology integration is complete, the ultra-fast IntelliTrax system will automatically be able to scan the color bar of a typical press sheet in seconds and immediately send the data to the Taskero Universe web site for verification and analysis.

"We are very pleased to have yet again joined forces with FUJIFILM as technology development partners to provide what will be seen as the new industry benchmark in press control and color measurement integration," comments Laura Pursley, X-Rite's senior product manager for Pressroom Solutions.

Taskero Universe will be demonstrated live at drupa 2008 at the FUJIFILM booth (Hall 8B, Stand A25), or visit the X-Rite booth (Hall 5, Stand D02) for an in depth demonstration of IntelliTrax.
