Xitron offers incentives to upgrade

Monday, March 02, 2009

Press release from the issuing company

Ann Arbor, Michigan -- Xitron, the prepress industry's leading independent developer and integrator of Raster Image Processors, RIP management software and workflow solutions today announced recession fighting incentives for printers who upgrade an existing Xitron workflow or purchase a new Xitron workflow to extend the life of an existing output device.

"For more than 30 years, Xitron has helped thousands of printers through recessionary periods by inventing low-cost prepress tools that improved prepress productivity," stated Mark Eisenschenk, Xitron's President and Chief Executive Officer. "Since we were able to prolong the lives of their otherwise serviceable platesetters and imagesetters, no large capital investment was required."

Xitron workflow solutions drive more than 250 different output devices including:

- Laser and inkjet proofers
- Film imagesetters
- Polyester and Metal CtP devices

- Direct Imaging and On-Demand presses

Xitron's two lines of workflow solutions are based on the industry leading PDF Print Engine from Adobe Systems and Global Graphics Harlequin RIP. These workflow solutions were designed to meet the stringent demands of today's prepress department. Modular in design, Xitron workflows allow a printer to purchase a solution that fits their current needs and budget with upgrade capabilities to meet their future needs.

"Picking the right equipment has been our key to growing this business," stated Ron Wells, owner of Maple Press, a trade printer in Troy, Michigan. "The prepress upgrades we have done have allowed our prepress operation to manage the growth." Maple Press is a Xitron customer utilizing Xitron's PRINTERnet, online job submission, preflighting and proofing solution with a Navigator GPS workflow driving their CtP and DI press as well as their digital proofer, a Xitron PRISM plain-paper LED printer.

Details regarding the incentives are available from Xitron at www.xitron.com/incentives.

Xitron products are available through a network of OEMs, distributors, dealers, and system integrators worldwide. Xitron RIPs and workflow solutions drive more than 250 different output devices ranging from black and white and color proofers to film imagesetters and the latest in CtP and direct-to-press systems. With shipments of more than 16,000 RIPs, Xitron is the largest independent provider of RIPs in the market. For more information about Xitron products, visit Xitron on the web at www.xitron.com.
