RealTimeImage Showcases RealTimeProof Solution on Mac OSX At Macworld

Press release from the issuing company

New York - July17, 2001 (Macworld Expo) - RealTimeImage Inc. (RTI), provider of the most accurate remote soft and hard proofing system (used by companies like Imation for their own solutions), is showcasing its RealTimeProof solution on the Mac OSX platform at Macworld Expo. Chris Gulker, VP of Marketing for RTI, says, "We're really excited that the more than 60,000 Mac enthusiasts expected to attend the upcoming Macworld will be able to experience the power of RealTimeProof technology on the Mac OSX platform. RTI is committed to supporting the Designer, Creative and Ad communities, the original Mac devotees." RealTimeImage provides a suite of web-based, collaborative proofing solutions, including the most accurate remote soft and hard proofing system. RealTimeProof dramatically reduces the costs and time required for conventional proofing by enabling all workflow partners to collaborate securely, in real time, on the original, full-resolution production image. No More Old-Fashioned Proofing: Proofing is the only component of the publishing workflow that could not, until now, take advantage of digital workflows. RealTimeProof allows all stakeholders to view the same file with the highest fidelity possible, eliminating problems resulting from multiple versions or the artifacts common in compressed files. RealTimeProof is designed to meet the needs of graphic arts professionals, such as advertising agencies, prepress and printing companies, design firms, and publishers as well as corporate marketing departments who need "real time" turnaround for proofing cycles. "RealTimeProof has become an integral part of our proofing cycle," says Lorraine Alper Kramer, Director of Print Services of Saatchi & Saatchi Los Angeles. "In fact, we would not have made it through our most critical time crunch last month when we rolled-out new campaigns for our major car client, without RealTimeProof's remote proofing capabilities. "Regardless of where my art directors, creatives and the creative director are physically, we are able to quickly and easily collaborate and exchange comments on projects effectively and on schedule." Save Time and Money without Compromising Accuracy: Pixels-On-Demand, a patents-pending image streaming technology, allows viewers to see actual gigabyte-sized high-resolution files in seconds even over dial-up connections. Using only a Mac or PC web browser and a free downloadable plug-in, users can proof, mark up, approve and even make hard proofs from original files anywhere, at anytime. Tools that go beyond Conventional Proofing: RealTimeImage products offer easy and intuitive tools that provide secure access (via 128-bit encryption), 100% accurate online densitometry, project and user management, real-time annotation and markup, and more. A time-stamped log of all requests and changes with automatic email notification reduces the chance for errors and misunderstandings. RealTimeImage Works the Way You Do: RealTimeProof's browser interface means companies can integrate it quickly into their workflow, without lengthy training. RealTimeImage supports color management, including ICC profiles. RealTimeImage also provides professional, custom integration services. Easy and Inexpensive to Get Started: RealTimeProof.com allows users to get started today with no capital outlay for software and hardware. Choose to pay per project, or select money-saving, flat rate subscriptions. Companies can also buy and operate their own RealTimeProof server. RealTimeImage also offers the option of building a private label site for companies.
