Press release from the issuing company

Montreal, Quebec, Canada - Ultimate Technographics Inc. is the leading imposition software developer and the inventor of digital imposition. Glunz & Jensen's new imposition workflow called i-Position is powered by Ultimate's Impostrip core technology and graphic interface. Glunz & Jensen will include i-Position as part of its new line of iCtP solutions to enable their customers to achieve the highest ROI by automating the time and labour intensive prepress task of imposing pages, booklets and magazines. The Glunz & Jensen iCtP system is built around The PlateWriter 4200, the industry's first inkjet Computer-to-Plate system capable of producing press-ready aluminum plates without the use of chemical processing. The PlateWriter 4200 inkjet Computer-to-Plate system is an innovative technology that sets new standards in the cost, flexibility and speed of offset printing for small to medium format printing. This new technology comes with an array of outstanding advantages that challenge the traditional laser-based plate imaging systems. 'By using Ultimate Technologies Impostrip engine as the back bone for our new range of imposition solutions trademarked i-Position we have been able to deliver a fast, powerful and reliable imposing solution for our customers', said Mark Baker-Homes, Glunz and Jensen's worldwide product manager for iCTP . "Furthermore we have customized i-Position to meet our customers requirements by providing a choice of packages to suit the press sizes in use, this enables even the smallest print shop the ability to acquire an industry leading, high end imposition package at an affordable price. This customization is married with the advantage that users can upgrade from one version to the next should their press's change and their sheet size increase - offering true peace of mind to our customers." 'I am pleased that Glunz & Jensen recognizes the business value that Ultimate imposition technology represents today, said Joanne David, Ultimate's Executive Vice-President. "Relying on our robust and powerful Impostrip to develop its strategy to market for the i-CtP is a bold move that will propel Glunz &Jensen to a leading market position quickly.'
