Lucid Dream Software Releases I-Trap 3 at the Graphics of the Americas show

Tuesday, January 24, 2006

Press release from the issuing company

HOFFMAN ESTATES, Ill., January 23, 2006 – Lucid Dream Software, Inc., a leading provider of trapping solutions, starts the New Year off with a major new release of it’s flag ship product I-Trap and will introduce at the upcoming Graphics of the Americas show in Miami in conjunction with EZ Hi Tech and Global Pre-Press Systems! Version 3 is packed full of new features, most notable is I-Link, the technology that allows I-Trap to interface with a broad range of output plugins. I-Trap ships with the Harlequin plugin for outputting trapped jobs to Harlequin devices. For a limited time Lucid is offering the I-JPEG plugin free to provide soft proof files of your ripped trapped jobs. In addition there is the I-Tone plugin with Agfa Balanced Screening (ABS) and Agfa CristalRaster Screening and Hybrid Screening to directly output 1 bit TIFF files. New features of version 3 include controls for spot to image trapping, and vignette to image trapping. When combined with the existing image trapping capabilities, now I-Trap can easily and automatically handle virtually any kind of image trapping requirements. Also new is trap color reduction control. Current trapping products only have a global control on reducing the darkness of traps. This can cause solid colors to have an unsightly softening of edges or prevent color reduction from being useful. I-Trap version 3 solves this by providing settings to reduce trap color in tinted areas and not in solid areas. I-Trap version 3 is easier than ever to use! It ships with a variety of preset configurations for most common trapping requirements. These presets can be applied to print queues or to interactive jobs for fast easy use. Version 3 also has a new workflow configuration tool that makes setup a breeze! Within just a few minutes of installation you can have workflows configured with inputs and outputs and trap settings applied in one easy step. I-Trap Auto gives you low cost – high quality in-rip trapping, while I-Trap Full Server gives you complete interactive trapping, client server based, with local and unlimited remote viewers for both Mac and PC. Pricing for I-Trap version 3 is $2250 for I-Trap Auto and $4695 for I-Trap full server, making it one of the most affordable trapping products on the market today! I-Trap version 3 is being released for both Mac and PC. Lucid Dream will show I-Trap at Graphics of the Americas in Miami on Feb. 3 – 5 in con junction with EZ Hi Tech Booth# 1084 and Global Pre-Press Systems Booth# 857.
