VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--Consolidated Magna Ventures Ltd. is delighted to report that SkinnyScript(TM) and the SkinnyServer(TM)enjoyed a tremendous reception at the Graphics Canada 2001 Trade Show in Toronto, November 8-11. The feedback from print industry veterans was extremely positive and there was general consensus that SkinnyScript(TM) will have a major impact on the entire printing and publishing industry.
As previously announced, Magna has partnered with Ultimate Technographics, Inc. ("Ultimate'') of Montreal, Quebec to co-develop the SkinnyServer(TM) software platform for the client side of the design-to-print workflow. A prototype of theSkinnyServer(TM) on an Apple(TM) G4 was available for demonstration at the trade show and a Windows(TM) version is under development. In meetings held during the Trade Show, Magna and Ultimate identified several additional products that could be co-developed over the next 6-12 months and at least five separate markets, including Europe and Asia, where the companies could make significant penetration.
At the Trade Show the Company was approached by several of the largest companies in the Printing industry and preliminary testing for potential Research and Development projects has been initiated.
