Compose System sign OEM agreement with Lucid Dream Software

Press release from the issuing company

HONG KONG, 30th September 2004 -- Compose System, a leading developer of prepress workflow and proofing solutions, have today announced a new OEM agreement with Lucid Dream Software. Under the terms of the agreement, Compose will market Lucid's I-Trap solution and offer it as a new optional module fully integrated with Express WorkFlow, Compose System's popular prepress workflow solution. Compose will market I-Trap under its own ExpressTrap brand name. ExpressTrap is a raster-based solution that offers both automated in-RIP and interactive trapping in a single easy-to-use package. The Interactive Viewer lets users interact directly with the trapping settings and quickly see the results. The Viewer includes a page manager, an information manager, a graphic configuration tool and page preview. The "Trap-on-the-Fly" feature allows users to quickly preview the results of their custom settings for all of the parameters including miter trapping, ink control behavior, trap widths, and image and gradient trapping. Newly released in the I-Trap Viewer is the ability to re-map inks, which is a major requirement in composite and PDF workflows. "The extensive list of workflow modules with Compose's Express Workflow Solution is an excellent fit for our I-Trap solution", said David Lewis, President Lucid Dream Software. "This strategic partnership exemplifies the power and flexibility of both products."
