ORIS Digital Proofing First to be SWOP Certified on Three New Canon Printers

Press release from the issuing company

Minneapolis, MN (August 17, 2005) – Continuing its dominance in industry-standard proofing, CGS Publishing Technologies International has announced additional SWOP certifications for the latest generation of Canon printers. The ORIS Digital Proofing System was the first system to be certified on the new, 4-picoliter devices, including the A3+ (13x19 inch) imagePROGRAF W2200S, the 24-inch W6400, and the 44-inch W8400. Certification was achieved with two different ink sets: Canon’s 6-color pigmented inks and CGS’ recently-introduced Long-Life Extended (LLE) inks, which have a large color gamut, plus the long-term stability associated with pigment-based inks. Both certifications used ORIS PearlPROOF Publication semi-matte paper, which has achieved widespread acceptance among major publishers and web printers. Canon’s new printers retain the exceptionally fast performance and user-friendly service characteristics of earlier imagePROGRAF models. The new, smaller droplet size and large number of ink nozzles adds increased resolution and quality required for many proofing applications. When combined with CGS’ color management and proofing-specific media, the new Canons constitute a substantial offering for on-site and remote contract proofing. SWOP (Specifications for Web Offset Publications) is a registered trademark of SWOP Incorporated, which merged with IDEAlliance on August 1st.
