S-NET, Inc. Integrates Web4Print Online Editing with RealTimeProof Chicago -- October 2, 2002 (Graph Expo) -- RealTimeImage and Web4Print today announce an agreement enabling S-NET, Inc., a RealTimeImage system integration partner, to integrate Web4Print‚s online editing functionality with RealTimeProof Partner, the integrateable client-server version of RealTimeProof. The unique technology combination provides graphic arts professionals with a single, integrated "one-stop" solution for high quality, full resolution online text and graphic proofing and editing, over any type of internet connection. Demonstrations of the solution are being held at RealTimeImage Booth #4733 at Graph Expo, McCormick Place, Chicago. S-NET Inc. plans to make the integrated offering widely available in January 2003. Yehuda Messinger, RealTimeImage Executive Vice President, Graphic Arts, says, "Web4Print technology allows highly precise, remote edit control; yet is simple for graphics professionals and their customers to setup and take advantage of. These capabilities fit well with RealTimeImage‚s core technologies, and the result is that a powerful and complete remote proof-edit workflow can be offered now to the graphic arts community." "RealTimeImage‚s suite of proofing products are perfect complements to our solution," states Bill McConnell, Managing Director of Web4Print. "End users will be able to edit their documents online as many times as they need to, and view revised proofs at full resolution in a few seconds, without compression or conversion. We can‚t imagine a more comprehensive or effective workflow for printers and their customers. We‚re extremely excited about bringing this technology to the print market, and S-NET Inc., working closely with Web4Print's development team, is doing an excellent job of integrating the technologies." RealTimeImage RealTimeImage powers the world‚s most accurate and rapid online proofing and approval management solutions. RealTimeProof-based solutions are designed to meet the needs of print and production professionals who need "real time" turnaround for proofing cycles. RealTimeProof solutions dramatically reduce the costs and time required for conventional proofing by enabling all workflow partners to collaborate securely, in real time, on original, full-resolution production images. RealTimeImage‚s unique image-streaming technology enables gigabytes of high- resolution files to be viewed, even over dial-up connections, in seconds. RealTimeProof Partner gives third parties the ability to plug RealTimeImage‚s accurate and fast image-streaming engine into any digital solution.
