Alder Technology Joins Forces with Color Control Network
Press release from the issuing company
Portland, OR, July 9, 2008, Alder Technology, Inc. announced they are the West Coast leader in being granted certification by Color Control Network (CCN) as Certified Expert Consultants.
Alder specializes in Color Management and Pre-Press hardware and software solutions by offering new technologies and consulting services that enhance a printer’s ability to produce consistent and accurate color. With CCN, Alder believes they have found a technology that meets that need.
Color Control Network (CCN) is an innovative system that allows printers to extend the tonal range in the 4/C offset printing process by exceeding the traditional CMYK gamut. Additionally, CCN gives printers precision control of CMYK beyond conventional color management.
“We are excited to bring this new printing methodology to our customers,” said Bruce Bayne, Owner of Alder Technology. “There have been others who have attempted to do wide gamut printing,” added Bayne, “but CCN is really doing it right – that is why we wanted to be one of the first CCN Certified Expert Consultants for this methodology.”
“In my role at Bell I see jobs through from initial concept, to photo shoots direction, art production, pre-press and even final press checks. I have high expectations for color reproduction primarily because I was there to see the actual aircraft, and I know how it should look. Using CCN, vivid, high-gloss paint reproduces with remarkable richness and accuracy” says Ben Gilliand, Creative Director, Bell Helicopter Textron Inc.
“Color Control Network is very pleased to be aligned with Alder Technology, Inc. and commend them for their long time commitment and their unwavering dedication to improving commercial printing practices,” said David Culotta, CFO, CCN.
