Gandinnovations launches GandiSoft

Press release from the issuing company

Mississauga, Ontario, Canada, September 19, 2008 – Gandinnovations, a world leader in grand format digital printer innovations is setting new standards for productivity, color accuracy and image fidelity.

Gandinnovations will be showcasing a special presentation seminar in their booth at both the SGIA and GraphExpo shows where customers will see this incredible new RIP software in action with the Jeti range of digital printers.

The company enlisted ErgoSoft, a business renowned for bringing groundbreaking color management solutions to the market, to create GandiSoft, a software program uniquely designed to meet the specific requirements of all Jeti Printers and the production of large format graphics.

ErgoSoft has combined the best features of its two top selling software products into one superior program available only through Gandinnovations.

"For those print shops that demand the highest quality output fast and efficiently, no other software can compare," says James Gandy, president in charge of manufacturing operations in Canada.  "GandiSoft was formulated specifically for Jeti Printers by ErgoSoft, and they're the best in the business. What most printers want is maximum throughput, prominent and distinct images, the most accurate color possible, and an efficient and accurate job application system.   GandiSoft was developed with the concerns of the print shop owner in mind."

"We've worked together for years, but solidified our relationship at DRUPA," adds Andy Brunner, senior product manager of ErgoSoft AG and project leader for GandiSoft.  "The Gandy's respond quickly to market changes and wanted software that was cost effective and easy to use – one application, one trained technician."

"We included optional features found in our most popular products and made them standard components of GandiSoft.  For example, the Hot Folder which automates workflow production; the I-Cut/contour cut module; our award winning ColorGPS ICC Profiler; and multiple printer RIP queue are all included in the package," states Peter Supry, director of technical services for ErgoSoft U.S.

Sharply designed workflow

GandiSoft's offers a powerful combination of technology.  It is designed to work in concert with the Job Client, RIP server and Print Queue to make job setup and output easier than ever.  You can accomplish all these tasks from one single window.

At the heart of GandiSoft is a sophisticated color rendering engine; an open color management system with custom linearization and ink limiting capability, support for various spectrophotometers, and an integrated ICC profiler, color GPS, all of which combine to provide unprecedented control over color accuracy and image fidelity.

Standard options of GandiSoft include: sophisticated controls for shrinkage allowance and stretch compensation; global color replacement; color books that provide for a series of industry standard and custom spot colors; hot folder to automate the ripping and printing process; automated seam extension for creating banner pockets; and an advanced contour cutting option that supports a die-cut workflow.

GandiSoft offers a tremendous span of output capabilities including the ability to increase the library of colors, so the operator can see what it will look like on substrate prior to printing.

The high-end large format digital printer market is a fast paced "niche" industry that requires flexibility and constant improvements in not only hardware, but also software development to remain at the top.  At the end of the day, print shop owners want to know:  How quickly can you setup a job? How long does it take to achieve the color quality you're looking for? How fast can the files be ripped? How much time is really spent on each job?    GandiSoft is designed for maximum throughput to have a positive effect on the print shop's bottom-line.

"Whether you are trying to win industry awards or win a new customer's business, it's hard to ignore superior quality.  We anticipate that GandiSoft will set the new standard for color accuracy and image fidelity, and will quickly become the preferred RIP for all Jeti Printers," adds Gandy.  "The biggest difference users of GandiSoft will realize is image quality and ease of use.  The learning curve is short and the user interface is extremely intuitive.  It's a natural experience, very similar to most desktop publishing applications."
