ORIS Press Matcher Receives PIA 2009 InterTech Technology Award

Friday, August 14, 2009

Press release from the issuing company

Hainburg (Germany) / Minneapolis MN – CGS Publishing Technologies International, global leader of color management solutions, digital proofing systems and specially formulated media, is proud to announce the Print Industries of America has awarded the 2009 InterTech Award for ORIS Press Matcher, recognizing CGS's innovative color management software.

The InterTech Technology Awards were inaugurated in 1978 as a way to honor the development of technologies predicted to have a major impact in the graphic arts and related industries. Printing Industries of America sponsors the awards as a service to the industry in order to spotlight the wide range of technologies that contribute to the advancement of techniques and processes used in the graphic arts. The InterTech Technology Awards have become a solid indicator of significant trends in graphic arts technology.

ORIS Press Matcher Pro uses ORIS Color Tuner color management technology, CGS' award-winning contract proofing system, to produce high-resolution files for your CTP system, digital press, wide-format printer or any other device. The results are standardized color across multiple platforms – bringing high-quality, consistent color to all your print projects, regardless of how or where they are printed. ORIS Press Matcher Pro is ideal for maintaining color consistency across multiple digital presses, or between offset and digital presses. It can also be used to color manage wide format output, so signage and point-of-sale materials remain color-consistent with conventionally printed collateral. ORIS Press Matcher offers the same superior color accuracy as ORIS Press Matcher Pro, but is specifically designed for directly driving medium volume digital printers and copiers. Because every printing environment is unique, we recommend that you contact us to discuss a custom solution.

"The GLS Companies of Minneapolis, MN is a G7 Certified Master Printer.  When we realized that CGS' product, ORIS Press Matcher Pro, would allow us to maintain color consistency between our conventional and HP Indigo digital presses, we performed due diligence on this process, stated Mike Farr, Vice President of Manufacturing for the GLS Companies.  In late March and early April, HP and CGS conducted a three-day GRACoL implementation process on our HP Indigo 5000 and 3050 presses, and met all our requirements for color quality and consistency.   Press Matcher has enabled us to maintain consistent color control matching from press run to press run between the two HP Indigo presses, as well as between offset and digital."

"Color quality is a major selling point for Belk Printing of Pineville, NC, said Chris Reynolds, Vice President of Manufacturing.  90% of our print revenue comes from two 40" offset presses and 10% comes from an iGen3 digital press.  We became concerned when each day's output was noticeably different.  A single iGen3 output, used as a proof for customer approval could not be replicated on the full press run. In July, 2008 we purchased ORIS Press Matcher Pro as a solution for this problem.  We already had a high level of satisfaction with ORIS Color Tuner Pro which we use for inkjet proofing.  After a two-day installation and training period, we were able to successfully manage the iGen3's color consistency and reduce color shift which creates a reliable baseline "starting point" for all digital print jobs.  We have also been able to makeup for occassional shortfalls in offset print runs by matching offset color quality to a degree which meets customer satisfaction.  In short, ORIS Press Matcher has enabled us to fully benefit from our investment in digital print."

"We believe this is a clear testimony to our technology leadership in developing color management and proofing solutions needed by the graphic communications industry.  At CGS we pride ourselves on listening to customers needs and applying our patented technology to create solutions to satisfy these needs.  ORIS Press Matcher Pro is a prime example, customers told us they need to produce consistent  color output between offset, digital and wideformat inkjet technologies. Our engineers were able to apply CGS patented technology to the problem and ORIS Press Matcher was created.  The PIA InterTech Technology Award is a considerable honor and recognition for the impact our technology has had on the graphic communications industry.  We are pleased to add the InterTech Technology star to the one we have for ORIS Color Tuner. On behalf of all the CGS employees worldwide I look forward to receiving the award at the PIA fall meeting.
