Group Logic Announces Partnership with CGS Publishing Technologies To OEM ExtremeZ-IP File Server
Press release from the issuing company
August 14, 2006 (Arlington, VA) – Group Logic, the leading provider of enterprise file transfer and Mac/Windows connectivity solutions, today announced that CGS Publishing Technologies, the leader in color contract proofing software and inkjet RIPs, is licensing ExtremeZ-IP with its ORIS Color Tuner systems – to enable Macintosh publishing and prepress shops to easily print to ORIS Color Tuner.
“As the proven standard for printing and file sharing between Mac desktops and Windows servers, ExtremeZ-IP provides ORIS customers with the ability to print accurate color proofs quickly and easily,” said Trevor Haworth, U.S. President of CGS Publishing Technologies International. “ORIS Color Tuner, with ExtremeZ-IP included, enables printing and prepress customers to create contract-quality proofs on affordable inkjet devices and eliminates Mac OS X SMB client headaches, ensuring that color-accurate proofs appear exactly the way they will on the press.”
ORIS provides CGS customers, including designers, color service bureaus, publishers and printers, with a complete proofing workflow system that enables perfect proofs the first time color contracts are printed. Color contract proofs are used by advertising agencies, publishers and printers to review the precise color and tones of materials prior to the final press run so color changes can be implemented before printing. ORIS customers can count on the perfect color coming through their systems correctly, and by integrating ExtremeZ-IP, customers can now easily access and send files from a Windows server to Color Tuner via their Mac desktop.
“CGS ORIS’ Mac customers rely on perfect color replica proofs, so CGS turned to Group Logic for Mac to Windows connectivity to ensure reliable and easy-to-use print capabilities,” said T. Reid Lewis, President and CEO of Group Logic. “CGS is committed to the highest quality in printing color contacts for printers, and Group Logic is able to help to facilitate this printing with ExtremeZ-IP.”
