X-Rite and Digital Information team up to provide solutions for the pressroom

Wednesday, May 12, 2010

Press release from the issuing company

Grand Rapids, Mich. – X-Rite, Incorporated, the world leader in color management, measurement and communication technologies and Digital Information, a Swiss developer of closed loop color control solutions today announced that EasyTrax now supports the industry leading Inkzone Move solution to provide printers with a fully integrated closed-loop color control solution for the press room.  The integration of these two solutions will be demonstrated for the first time at IPEX (NEC Birmingham UK, May 18 – 25, 2010), on Digital Information's stand 11-C239.

"The combination of EasyTrax's easy-to-use semi-automated scanning features with Inkzone Move makes digitally-driven, closed loop color control an affordable reality for printers of all sizes and budgets," comments Iris Mangelschots, X-Rite's Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing.

"The combination of our two technologies allows for the integration of disparate measurement solutions, workflows, and printing presses, into a smooth-running, advanced color-control solution that is united, regardless of the make, age or model of the equipment already in place," explains Michael Haenni, President of Digital Information.

When used with Inkzone Move, EasyTrax improves pressroom productivity, enables faster make ready, and empowers users to print to G7 or PSO specifications with ease and confidence. EasyTrax simplifies the regular monitoring of press runs by measuring color bars press-side; it produces fast and highly accurate density and spectral measurement data that gets sent to the InkZone Move interface, leading to predictable, repeatable results.  Designed with simple installation and ease-of-use in mind, EasyTrax offers easy set up, easy alignment, and can be used with little to no training, making it a highly efficient tool for press operators at any level. For customers with older presses, EasyTrax can extend the life of their presses by introducing automation and increasing efficiency.

Because Inkzone Move is now compatible with virtually every densitometer and spectrophotometer including X-Rite's IntelliTrax and i1 systems, it can allow printers to create a unified, closed loop working environment, regardless of the press model, measurement technology or prepress workflow that is in place.
