ROLLING MEADOWS, Ill. (October 20, 2008) -- Attendees of SGIA '08, the annual exposition for the specialty graphic imaging segment of the printing industry, were treated to award-winning print quality on the Truepress Jet2500UV. Screen's innovative grand-format UV inkjet printer was recognized as Product of the Year at SGIA by the Digital Printing & Imaging Association (DPI).
In the Output Device category, the Truepress Jet2500UV received the Product of the Year award for "Rigid Substrate -- UV Ink" output. The unique inkjet printing system impressed the DPI judges with the kind of outstanding print results that consistently impressed booth visitors at this year's SGIA show.
DPI holds the annual Product of the Year contest in conjunction with SGIA, held this year from October 15-18 at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta. The competition compares digital imaging products that are increasing the speed and accuracy of specialty imaging in wide-format digital graphics.
Entrants are required to print and submit test images created by DPI. The test forms contain a number of challenging images and patterns designed to put digital printing devices through their paces. A panel of printing experts based its award selections on the color appeal, tonality and detail displayed on the submissions.
"We are very proud that the Truepress Jet2500UV has been honored as one of the digital imaging products that is helping the printing industry and enabling printers to succeed in the marketplace," said Mike Fox, president of Screen (USA). "Screen's Truepress printing systems represent our deep commitment to the digital imaging community."
The Truepress Jet2500UV will join other members of the Truepress family, along with PlateRite CTP platesetters and Screen workflow solutions, in booth #3808 at Graph Expo 2008, to be held October 26-29 at McCormick Place in Chicago.
