VALHALLA, N.Y. and DANVERS, Mass. (June 5, 2008) - FUJIFILM Corporation and TECHKON USA are giving printers even tighter control of their pressrooms. After seeing great success in the prepress arena, Fujifilm is bringing its performance analysis and diagnostic tool - Taskero Universe - into the pressroom and has tapped TECHKON as a technology development partner.
"Taskero Universe is a unique tool and one that gives printers better control than they've ever had before. It relies on consistent and thorough data, and we know that TECHKON and its line of color measuring devices can provide that," said Don Schroeder, director of solutions development for FUJIFILM Graphic Systems U.S.A., Inc.
The TECHKON products being tailored to work with Fujifilm's Taskero Universe include the RS 800 scanning Spectro-densitometer, the SpectroPlate and the new SpectroDrive, which enables fully automated readings of color bars on press sheets.
"The integration of TECHKON products with the Taskero Universe platform provides unmatched state of the art technology, performance and color quality that are truly unique to the printers' needs. We are pleased to be working with Fujifilm to offer an exceptional quality control solution to the pressroom," said George Adam, TECHKON USA president.
Taskero Universe will be demonstrated live at drupa 2008 at the Fujifilm booth (Stand A25, Hall 8B). For more information, please visit Fujifilm at drupa 2008 or on the web at www.fujifilmgs.com.
