Tuesday, April 04, 2006

Press release from the issuing company

Hannover, March 30, 2006 – For some time, the print service provider Data Image from Leiceister (UK) has produced on all their LFP applications and print systems using the platform-independent center management PRODUCTIONSERVER4 and achieves excellent output results which, among others, are achieved by high end quality color management. The company produces prints for many renowned customers on many different printers: Mimaki (JV2/JV3/JV4), Vutek (UV Press View/180 UV), Epson (SP 4000/SP 9600). ColorGATE’s PRODUCTIONSERVER4 PRO solved the problem of using many different RIPs. PROOF and PROFILER Modul complements the future proof solution of this British digital print specialist. Consistent and reliable print results are achieved now by Data Image by implementing the ColorGATE solutions for all the printers. Director Robert Farford decided on one RIP solution for all his output devices. In addition, the employees only need to know one software solution, which now makes training very easy. The user-friendly handling and the ergonomic mature operation of PRODUCTIONSERVER4 ensures fast and reliable production. Color management of PRODUCTIONSERVER4 in accordance with the ISO standard ensures that all data is output in the same way on each of the devices and that the major customers of the print company can rely on exact and reproducible jobs being produced. Many different print media are involved in production, such as wood. The applications encompass graphics for retail companies and PoS (big banners, display and megaposters). Especially companies from the cosmetics market, but also the mobile phone industry and the car industry are supplied by Data Image which was founded in 1992. Color management in high end quality ensures that the requested colors are printed each time. “Daily, our 30 employees are producing a wide variety of print jobs for customers. By using so many different printers, we also had a variety of RIP solutions. Now, after implementing the ColorGATE solutions, we only need one RIP which drives all our printers. In addition, we can now profile our printers with the help of the ColorGATE software”, says Robert Farford. “Our Delta-E-values are astonishingly low, since we started using PRODUCTIONSERVER4. Integrating ColorGATE’s PRODUCTIONSERVER4 into our workflow was a very productive decision. With its user-friendliness and impressive color accuracy, we are really getting everything possible out of our machines. This gives us a clear advantage over our competitors.” The platform-independent center management for all LFP applications and print systems, PRODUCTIONSERVER4 ensures reliable and color consistent output of files on printers of different manufacturers. The color management guarantees at Data Image, that their customers, no matter which print medium is used, always receive the same high end quality of their printed objects. In addition, the user-friendly interface operators only need to learn one software now, when employees had to be trained in many different programs. The automation functionalities and modular expansion of PRODUCTIONSERVER4 ensures a future-proof solution which at any time can be expanded according to the requirements of the print service provider. ColorGATE solutions will be shown live at Fespa Digital Printing Europe in Amsterdam from May 16-18, 2006 at different booths. In hall 8, booth D700, Bedigital Llumicolor S.L. will be presenting PRODUCTIONSERVER4 together with BeDigital printers.
