Monday, July 14, 2008

Press release from the issuing company

(July 13, 2008) CGS Publishing Technologies International, global leader of color management solutions, digital proofing systems and specially-formulated media, today announced that it has been the first company to receive certifications for the Canon imagePROGRAF iPF x100 series of printers. "Canon is exited to be a partner with CGS on SWOP and GRACoL standards. These certifications certainly prove that the Canon iPF range meets the expectations of customers in the high quality, contract proofing market" states Ami Bagchi, director of printer division for Canon U.S.A., Inc.

Certification has been grabted for Grade # 3 SWOP on ORIS PearlProof Commercial, Grade # 5 SWOP on ORIS PearlProof Publication and Grade # 1 GRACoL on ORIS PearlProof Super and ORIS PearlProof Select on the Canon iPF x100 series. The ORIS PearlProof family is made to CGS specifications under the strictest manufacturing tolerances ensuring consistent batch-to-batch quality. With their exclusive ultra-fine grain nanoporous coating, ORIS PearlProof media provide double the surface area of common microporous papers thus allowing for higher ink densities, uniform ink absorption, better shadow detail, larger color gamut and faster drying. The exclusive single-pass coating ensures very low defect level, greater consistency and stable Lab values.

Heath Luetkens, CGS Director of Technology, commenting on the certification stated, "CGS is pleased to be the first company to receive industry certification with the Canon iPF x100 series. Certifications like this are very important for achieving perfect color matching. CGS is committed to all color standards as a means of assuring the best quality for users of proofs created by ORIS products."
