EXPOGRAFICA 2003 MEXICO CITY, MEXICO -- May 6, 2003 -- Creo Inc. is showing print samples with near-photographic quality produced with Staaccato screening at Expografica, the largest graphic arts show in Mexico in 2003. Expografica is underway May 6-9 at the Centro de Exposiciones del HipÛdromo de la AmÈricas (Centro Banamex) in Mexico City, Mexico. Creo is represented by Grupo Prepress Xpress S.A. de C.V., the sales and service organization dedicated to supporting Creo solutions in Mexico. Close-up on Staccato... Staccato screening is an advanced screening technology for consistent, reliable, high-impact print production. It produces high-fidelity, artifact-free images that exhibit fine detail without halftone rosettes, screening moirÈ, gray-level limitations or abrupt jumps in tone-without impacting RIPing or rendering time. When imaged with the consistency and accuracy of SQUAREspot thermal imaging, Staccato screening delivers unmatched quality from proof to plate. Expografica visitors can see excellent results of Staccato screening on the front cover of the Mexican May edition of Artes Graphicas. Editorial coverage also features the many benefits Staccato screening brings to printers. Very Large-Format CTP... The industry's favorite, the Creo Trendsetter VLF platesetter, is also on display at Expografica. This very large-format thermal computer-to-plate (CTP) device is highly productive for very large format web and sheetfed printing, as well as offset package and label printing. Trendsetter VLF Quantum devices feature SQUAREspot thermal imaging heads and because this technology provides a superior level of process control, it is the only very large-format platesetter than enables reliable and consistent Staccato screening for routine daily production.
