Press release from the issuing company

New Windsor, NY, February 2006—GretagMacbeth, the worldwide technological leader in color management solutions for the graphic arts industry, has installed a vipPAQ inline densitometric color measuring system at the Rochester Institute of Technology for use in its Printing Applications Laboratory. Announcing the installation, Mark Geeves, GretagMacbeth Vice-President of Sales—Americas, commented: "GretagMacbeth is pleased to work with the Rochester Institute of Technology in maintaining one of the most advanced printing technology research laboratories in North America. With the GretagMacbeth vipPAQ, RIT researchers and students will be able to reduce setup time on their flexographic presses. The system will detect changes in the process before they appear visually without having to stop the press and measure offline, thereby reducing waste and downtime. The GretagMacbeth vipPAQ is based on the same precision measurement technology used in our popular multicolor handheld densitometers." In acknowledging the installation, RIT Manager of Technology Transfer Bill Pope observed: "RIT is pleased to accept the GretagMacbeth vipPAQ and to make it available to our students, seminar attendees, and print research technicians. For many years, we have had great success with GretagMacbeth products, and look forward to integrating the vipPAQ into our operations. The GretagMacbeth vipPAQ represents the next generation of press controls for the flexographic market. With the availability of this new instrument, we can now use ICC color management tools and workflow more efficiently and with confidence that the process is under control. We are installing the vipPAQ on a Mark Andy LP3000 press."
