FUJIFILM, X-Rite Bring Taskero Universe 2.0 Into the Pressroom

Monday, October 27, 2008

Press release from the issuing company

VALHALLA, N.Y. and GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (October 26, 2008) – FUJIFILM Graphic Systems U.S.A., Inc. and X-Rite Incorporated have come together to bring the power of Taskero Universe 2.0 – a suite of performance analysis and monitoring tools – from the prepress area and into the pressroom. Available immediately, the powerful solution combines the strength of X-Rite's IntelliTrax 1.5 – the industry's fastest, automated color measurement system for press-side color control – with Taskero Universe's enterprise capabilities.  

X-Rite's ultra-fast IntelliTrax automated color measurement system automatically scans the color bar of a typical press sheet in seconds and immediately sends the data to the Taskero Universe 2.0 web site for verification and analysis.  The integration of the two technologies creates a much needed solution for the printing market that enables users to monitor hardware performance from prepress through to the pressroom, while getting real-time color measurement and aggregation of the entire press run, live on the web, at the user or management's fingertips.

"X-Rite devices are renowned for their precision and ease of use and IntelliTrax is no exception," said Don Schroeder, Fujifilm's director of solutions development. "We've worked closely with X-Rite over the past year in developing this solution to ensure that it fits seamlessly and simply into existing pressroom operations. In combining Taskero Universe 2.0 with X-Rite's IntelliTrax 1.5, we've created a powerful solution that helps printers achieve the ultimate in quality control as well as increases profitability and reduces waste."

"As a result of our close cooperation with FUJIFILM, we have created a new industry benchmark in press control and color measurement integration, comments Laura Pursley X-Rite's senior product manager for pressroom solutions.  

Taskero Universe 2.0 will be demonstrated live at Graph Expo 2008 at the Fujifilm booth (Booth #4404) or visit the X-Rite booth (Booth #5214) for an in-depth demonstration of IntelliTrax.
