Magna to Offer Fibre Optic Platform for Web Services Through ISP Agreement
Press release from the issuing company
VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--Consolidated Magna Ventures Ltd., is pleased to announce that the Company has completed final arrangements with Data Fortress Technologies Ltd. to house Magna's Web-Based SkinnyScript(TM) Servers and Image Portal Servers and to provide three on-ramps to their fibre optic loop in downtown Vancouver. The completed system will be coming on line Dec. 1, 2001.
Data Fortress is a premier Tier1 data centre and ISP that operates a co-location centre and data storage facility in downtown Vancouver. The company recently announced a reverse takeover through which it will be acquired by iaNett International Systems Ltd. Being on Data Fortress's fibre optic loop will enable Magna to transfer files to and from its servers without incurring Internet bandwidth limitations and charges.
Any client with an Internet connection on Shaw Cable's BIG PIPE network, including Shaw's cable modem subscribers, will enjoy single hop connections to the SkinnyScript(TM) Web services. Magna now has the infrastructure in place to connect Colour and Black & White copier center as well as high-end printers with Designers and Publishers through the Web-enabled Skinny Technology platform. This will include a complete Web-enabled image and print page storage and retrieval service and can be combined with Web-enabled prepress services including Trapping, Colour Correction, Imposition and Proofing. In addition, the Company will offer a complete Print On Demand solution for most print requirements.
As the SkinnyScript(TM) Web-enabled workflow isn't just the work order alone, but the actual prepress file with the work order attached, most of the time and cost of couriers can now be removed from the equation. Clients will enjoy further benefits of faster file transfer rates, enhanced image storage and retrieval capabilities and lower file storage costs, as well as an overall increase in efficiency and lower production costs.
