Tuesday, August 25, 2009

Press release from the issuing company

Meeting standards on a digital press is now affordable, easy and guaranteed.
Lyon - Digital printers can now produce standardized and stable prints to offset quality thanks to Print Standardizer, the latest software from Alwan Color Expertise, the graphic industry's leading color standardization company. Print Standardizer operates with X-Rite's press-side auto-scanning instruments and this new version works with a number of X-Rite prepress instruments, including I1, IO, iSis and Spectroscan. The new software maximizes quality and profitability, and ensures meeting standards on a digital printer and press is simple, cost effective and guaranteed.
Standardized digital products for offset performance at an unbeatable cost
No matter how large or small the digital press or printing device, Print Standardizer ensures color rendering complies with international standards, such as ISO 12647 and G7 etc, for each and every job. Digital presses and printers are calibrated and stabilized in real–time, and without any human intervention produce prints that match the quality of standardized offset press products.  Print Standardizer is easy to implement and is a cost-effective solution for print houses of all sizes that want to boost productivity, quality and profitability.
Elie Khoury, Founder and CEO of Alwan Color Expertise, says: "Market studies show that digital printing is the fastest-growing segment in the graphic arts industry. It was a natural step for us to respond to this trend and help digital printers standardize their production. Print Standardizer enables them to operate more efficiently and meet their customers' ever-higher expectations."
Dave Hunter, Alwan's representative in the US and a leading expert on G7, adds : "I'm asked to make the digital press match the offset press in an increasing number of G7 installations. Even though G7 and Curve software provide a solid foundation for achieving this, a complete match can't be achieved without dynamic color management on the file and dot gain tracking and stabilization on the press. Print Standardizer is the only solution that can do both.
"Print Standardizer has also embedded the latest Adobe PDF library for files optimization. Many of the front ends for digital presses do not have this, which causes transparency issues that Alwan is later brought in to fix. Plus, many digital presses still do not print to the given target even after calibration. Print Standardizer addresses this issue by using its Dynamic Dot Gain Calibration to ensure conformance."
