For Large Format Digital Printing Professionals
Philadelphia, PA, October 30, 2002 – Scanvec Amiable, a global leader in graphics software solutions, and GretagMacbeth, worldwide technological leader in color measurement and management solutions, announced today the availability of the PhotoPRINT 3 RIP software solutions bundled with the Eye-One Pro spectrophotometer. This strategic alliance places Scanvec Amiable in an excellent market position to provide a complete, high quality and accurate large format digital printing software solution, at an attractive price.

New color management functionalities planned to be added to Scanvec Amiable RIP software early in 2003 that will take full advantage of Eye-One’s spectral measurement capabilities. Accurate and effective color management is vital as creative professionals take on digital printing, digital photography, digital proofing, signmaking and screenprinting.
The award-winning GretagMacbeth Eye-One Pro device measures in both reflective and transmissive modes, quickly and accurately scans color patches, and measures both CRT and flat panel displays. Designed to meet the needs of the creative market, the Eye-One ensures consistent color reproduction across a wide range of media, eliminating guesswork and wasted proofs. The Eye-One is powered by a USB connection, requires no additional power supply, and can be used with both the Mac and PC.
