Fujifilm, EFI announce partnership

Thursday, September 17, 2009

Press release from the issuing company

VALHALLA, N.Y. and FOSTER CITY, Calif. – FUJIFILM Graphic Systems U.S.A., Inc. and EFI are pleased to announce a new development partnership that will link the popular EFI Colorproof XF RIP and proofing solution and Fujifilm's award-winning Taskero Universe ColorPath Verified.

Winner of the prestigious InterTech Technology Award from Printing Industries of America, Fujifilm's patented Taskero Universe ColorPath Verified is a system and method for remotely monitoring, maintaining and servicing every facet of the color production process. It aims to increase a printer's profitability while also reducing waste.

"Our intention throughout the development of Taskero Universe ColorPath Verified has always been to create an open system and this latest partnership will benefit a number of mutual Fujifilm/EFI customers," said Don Schroeder, Fujifilm's director of solutions development. "The automation, efficiency and ease of use of EFI Colorproof XF, in combination with Taskero Universe ColorPath Verified, delivers streamlined productivity
with global views of production and verification."

Designed to provide critical, up-to-date information on the color production process, Taskero Universe ColorPath Verified monitors and validates output from the prepress stage to the pressroom and offers a method for monitoring, controlling and maintaining consistent quality throughout color production – not only in local plants, but also in remote locations around the world via an Internet connection.

EFI Colorproof XF is a professional-level RIP solution for graphic arts businesses that need to produce ISO 12647-7/8 compliant validation prints and contract proofs on inkjet, laser and LED printers. The solution offers all the tools to master any proofing or printing task, ensuring accurate and consistent color every time.

Stefan Spiegel, general manager of EFI graphic arts solutions, said: "FUJIFILM is a long-time partner of EFI, and we're pleased to join forces with them on this new offering. Customers will reap the benefits of two award-winning solutions that will help them increase productivity, saves costs by eliminating redundant production steps, and ultimately increase profits.

Development of the new solution is currently underway and announcements regarding availability are slated to come later this year.

Taskero Universe ColorPath Verified will be demonstrated live at PRINT 09 at the Fujifilm booth (Booth #6919). For more information, please visit Fujifilm at PRINT 09 or on the web at www.fujifilmgs.com.
