Press release from the issuing company

HAINBURG/ MINNEAPOLIS, December 14, 2007 – CGS Publishing Technologies, the global leader in color management solutions, digital proofing systems and specially-formulated media for the graphic arts market, received high marks for ORIS Color Tuner from one of Germany’s premier educational institutions for graphic arts, printing technology and management.  Bergische University of Wuppertal evaluated CGS during its Digital Proofing Systems 2007 project and presented the company with some of the highest marks in the industry.
In its third year of the digital proofing systems project, Bergische University of Wuppertal focused on the area of remote proofing for its 2007 evaluation. Topics included the visual and metrological consistency of remote proofing systems and their long term stability. Criteria also consisted of:  the correlation between visual and metrological analysis methods; the attributes of the tried proof substrates; and the proofing system color gammuts.

As part of the project, vendors had to first set up a remote proofing scenario at two locations to receive exact alignments under real print conditions. The second task included monitoring long term stability over a period of four weeks. During the evaluation, it was important that the color adaption have the highest possible exactness in reproduction on both proofing systems.
