ROCHESTER, N.Y.--June 8, 2001--Xerox Corporation and Presstek, Inc. will present a daylong educational, hands-on seminar for printing and graphic arts professionals next week to learn about the advantages of direct imaging (DI).
"DIalog 2001, Graphic Communication: From Digital Data to Direct Imaging,'' will be held 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on June 13, at Presstek's headquarters in Hudson, N.H., located 45 minutes north of Boston.
The free event, held in cooperation with Electronic Publishing Magazine, is aimed at commercial printers, print buyers, production managers, graphic designers, advertising agencies and prepress suppliers.
Direct imaging technology combines the speed of digital input with the image quality of offset printing. DI presses produce a more stable print run and create an easier and more accurate registration, with printing plates that roll up quicker than traditional plates.
Speakers at the seminar will include:
- Frank Romano, professor, Rochester Institute of Technology,
and senior contributing editor, Electronic Publishing.
- Ira Gold, contributing technology editor, Electronic
- David Zwang, principal consultant, Zwang and Company.
Attendees also can see why Xerox DocuColor DI presses bring new levels of efficiency to offset printing and get a technology update from Presstek on what makes today's DI presses work. There also will be sessions ranging from digital photography to ink and paper, with a panel of experts guiding attendees through an all-digital workflow.
"The resources of both Presstek and Xerox and the knowledge of our guest speakers will create a highly informative day for all attendees,'' said Stan Najmr, director of DI, Presstek.
"Xerox is now offering digital offset systems - the Presstek-enabled DocuColor 233 and DocuColor 400 DI presses - as part of our DocuColor product line. In the New Business of Printing, it is vital to have a printing system that can combine the strengths of both digital and offset. Successful print businesses need to offer customers both,'' said Elaine Wilde, senior vice president and general manager, Xerox Worldwide Graphic Arts Business.
