Vantage Consultancy Services (VCS), the strategic analysis division of the well known and respected international graphic arts research company Vantage Strategic Marketing, has recently published a unique and comprehensive report " Computer to Plate - Technology"
The co-authors of the 200pp study have been closely involved in the plate manufacturing industry in both R&D and production for over 25 years at the most senior level with major manufacturers. They have been directly responsible for the development of several of the leading CTP plates, presently available today on the international market.
There is a perception that CTP is now a "mature" technology, with all the various manufacturers - both equipment and consumable suppliers - promoting their respective sales and technology. The reality is somewhat different with few of the major manufacturers achieving the production plate yield rates necessary to sustain a long term strategy on solely the plate business, due to the diversity of technologies and the increasing price pressure on CTP products in most markets.
The report is the most definitive review of the various CTP technologies so far published, and outlines in clear and concise detail the technologies, their status, the issues raised and options available.
The response has already been very positive from a wide range of subscribers. A detailed contents list is available from the following link www.bespokeinternational.com/clients/Bespoke/BesEng625.htm and further information is available from:-
