Arlington, VA - December 10, 2001 - Giant imaging solution provider Agfa Corporation have signed an agreement with Group Logic to resell Group Logic’s ExtremeZ-IP software through Agfa’s worldwide distribution channel to new and existing users of Agfa’s solutions.
Solutions affected by the agreement include Agfa’s wide range of software systems for the printing and publishing industries, such as Apogee Series3 - the world’s leading PDF-based digital workflow system. The agreement follows Agfa’s decision to migrate many of its products, including Apogee PDF RIP (Raster Image Processor) and Apogee PrintDrive, to the Windows 2000 Server and Professional platform.
Because most printing and publishing businesses rely heavily on Macintosh
workstations, Agfa will offer its customers the superior Macintosh-Windows file sharing services provided by ExtremeZ-IP. Windows 2000 Server offers only basic Macintosh support through its built-in SFM (Services for Macintosh) utility, and Windows 2000 Professional provides no Macintosh file sharing support.
The Agfa-Gevaert Group, headquartered in Mortsel, Belgium, ranks among the world's leading imaging companies. Agfa develops, produces and markets analogue and digital systems, primarily for the graphics industry, medical imaging, non-destructive testing, micrographics, motion picture film and consumer imaging and photography markets. Agfa employs about 22,000 people in 40 countries, and has 120 agents throughout the world. Together, they achieved a turnover of 5,260 million euro in 2000.
