ORIS Certified Press Released for Graphic Arts Markets

Press release from the issuing company

November 5, 2007 - CGS Publishing Technologies, the global leader of color management solutions, digital proofing systems and specially-formulated media, today announced the release of ORIS Certified Press for the graphic arts market. The new product is the ideal press quality assurance system to evaluate the printing press and enable compliance to industry standards quickly and efficiently.
The new CGS product, displayed last month at Graph Expo, is a valuable measurement tool for the graphics industry including ad agencies, print buyers, color separators and printers. ORIS Certified Press is designed to evaluate press parameters - tone value increase, ink uniformity, grey balance and primary color densities - and offer comprehensive intelligence on its findings in an easy-to-understand report. This report provides clear "out of tolerance" indicators and vital information about the action needed to correct press errors.
ORIS Certified Press received positive reviews from its beta customers, including German-based Weiss-Druck. This printing company is part of The Weiss Group, an organization comprised of 30 businesses in the printing, printed media and media services industries throughout Germany.
"I don't know of any other software solution that provides the level of information that this CGS product does," said Thomas Hilgers, prepress manager at Weiss-Druck, Monschau, Germany. "ORIS Certified Press enables us to measure press quality very precisely and comply with industry standards, like FOGRA. The product is easy to use and can be adapted quickly. By using ORIS Certified Press, printers can improve their process controls in very short time."
ORIS Certified Press precisely measures a series of color patches in control strips to quickly and easily measure and display compliance to today's industry standards. Additional benefits include control of spot colors. All measurements are stored and can be recalled to depict trends in press condition over the job or over time. ORIS Certified Press supports scanners such as X-Rite Eye-One Spectrophotometer and Techkon Scan Spectrometer RS 800.
