Printable Selects RealTimeImage for Online Proofing
Press release from the issuing company
February 26, 2003 – Solana Beach & San Bruno, CA – Printable Technologies and RealTimeImage, Inc., are partnering to provide Printable’s PrintOne Customers one of the most advanced online proofing and approval management solutions available in the marketplace. Beginning immediately, Printable is offering PrintableProof.com, powered by RealTimeProof, as an option to its PrintOne catalog of services.
RealTimeProof solutions dramatically reduce costs and time required for conventional proofing by enabling all workflow partners to collaborate securely, in real time, on original, full-resolution production images. The Printable-branded service will utilize RealTimeImage’s unique image-streaming technology enabling gigabytes of high-resolution files to be viewed, even over dial-up connections, in seconds. The Printable online proofing solution offers the benefits of an ASP with no upfront costs or special IT infrastructure and setup needed; therefore small production facilities can benefit from this powerful application affordably.
The PrintOne Customer Center provides private, branded interfaces created for the printer's valued customers. These customers work within their own secure environment, where they see only their own works in progress, digital assets, media catalog, communication and e-business information that is shared with the printer and, optionally, with their own corporate peers. The PrintOne Customer Center is currently used by several thousand enterprise customers.
"Our client base is demanding higher functionality online proofing and approval management capabilities and RealTimeProof simply offers best in class solutions. We are very pleased to be able to add this important component to our suite of applications," said Coleman Kane, President and CEO of Printable Technologies.
“Printable’s customers are already harnessing the efficiencies of the Internet and remote workflows through PrintOne. Now powered by RealTimeProof, PrintOne will take these efficiencies even one significant step further. We’ll be proud to count Printable’s customers among our RealTimeProof technology users, and we look forward to a successful relationship with Coleman and his team,” says Yehuda Messinger, Executive Vice President, Graphic Arts, for RealTimeImage.
