JERUSALEM, October 13, 2008 -- Leading lenticular 3D software developer, HumanEyes Technologies, will bring its new extensive range of revolutionary tools and features in the newest HumanEyes Producer3D lenticular workflow solution to SGIA 2008 and Graph Expo 2008. HumanEyes Producer3D, introduced at drupa, is increasing in popularity among printers and media planners who can leverage the application's novelty and higher return on investment.
At Excelsus Solutions of Rochester, New York; founding partner Mark Laniak says, "HumanEyes has packed a lot of punch in this latest software offering. The company has yet again changed the landscape for 3D and special effects lenticular printing. In HumanEyes Producer3D, HumanEyes has found a way to integrate what was a very specialized process into 'regular' workflows. We're working in a greatly simplified interface, and can work with these files in a very familiar, 2D way. This allows Excelsus to give its customers this novel, attention-getting output without doing cartwheels in prepress or printing. Productivity and profit margins, as a result, are on their way up."
HumanEyes Producer3D's new tools and features have been designed in response to market needs. An array of new lenticular tools and 'industry first' prepress features that simplify the pre-print process, greatly improve lenticular printing efficiency, and provide superior lenticular print output set a new functionality standard in lenticular printing.
"Lenticular solutions offer printers and their clients a unique, highly interactive experience that competes effectively with other forms of advertising. The sheer versatility of lenticular printing also enhances its appeal, as it can be used to print everything from business cards to direct mail pieces; packaging and POS materials to banners and posters," says Shahar Bin-Nun, VP Sales, HumanEyes Technologies.
Of the newest version of HumanEyes Producer3D, Bin-Nun says, "We believe -- and now our customers are confirming -- that we have reached a point where the integration of HumanEyes Producer3D has become as seamless and user-friendly as the best prepress applications in the marketplace."
Early Feedback from Users Worldwide
HumanEyes customers and partners who have beta-tested HumanEyes Producer3D in the field offer enthusiastic feedback. Says Bryan Llewellyn, Digital Production Specialist, PIA/GATF: "HumanEyes Producer3D does all the hard work at the back end. I was surprised at how easy it is to operate when you consider what it adds to a business in terms of both additional revenues and new applications for customers."
Colin Clegg, Managing Director of Clegg Media in Australia says, "We chose the HumanEyes lenticular workflow solution for two reasons. Firstly the new HumanEyes Producer3D product allows both drag and drop, and step and repeat, directly onto the image of the lens, making production rates the most efficient ever for lenticular. Secondly, the HumanEyes Creative3D application enables our customers to create the artwork simply and easily: they can do flip, motion and animation with minimal training."
"We had the chance to discover HumanEyes Producer3D at drupa and were immediately interested in buying it," says Reynald Krähenbühl, SWISS GRAFIK SA. "Over the years we've had many customer requests for lenticular. As a result of HumanEyes Producer3D, we are pleased to now be able to offer these capabilities to our customers; becoming the first lenticular printer in Switzerland. I also recommend the two-day training supplied by HumanEyes, which was very comprehensive with follow-up that is truly noteworthy.''
HumanEyes Producer3D Offers New Levels of Functionality
HumanEyes Producer3D features include a new layout editor and greater ganging functionality for easy image management, as well as a time saving step & repeat function. A complete range of marking tools have also been adapted to suit specific lenticular requirements, providing printers with a range of easy and familiar tools. A new tiling wizard enables the printing of a project that needs to be larger than the printer's existing output format size, with the new workflow software also offering the ability to save the interlace (the file formatted for lenticular output) as a PDF file - providing a smaller file size with a higher resolution. Finally, HumanEyes Producer3D also offers soft proofing capabilities for remote review and approval - saving the printer time and production costs.
