REGENSBURG, Germany & JERSEY CITY, N.J.--March 12, 2007-- OneVision, Inc., a global provider of prepress software solutions to the printing and publishing industries, announces the release of PlugINKSAVEin, a new optional plug-in software module for OneVision's Asura and Asura Pro, the company's flagship solutions that streamline and automate the preflighting, optimization and normalization processes in print production and output to several formats, including PDF, EPS and PostScript.
PlugINKSAVEin will be on display for the first time during two upcoming industry events: America East in Hershey, Pa., March 13-14 at Booth #17, and NEXPO in Orlando, April 21-24 at Booth #1867.
PlugINKSAVEin uses advanced four-dimensional (4D) color management techniques to reduce the amount of costly CMY ink required in the printing process and maximize the amount of less expensive black ink - without affecting image quality or appearance. PlugINKSAVEin's easy-to-use interface facilitates parameter setting and adjustment without demanding third-party expertise. In addition to significant ink cost reduction, users benefit from enhanced printing quality and increased productivity, as set-up times can be reduced and fan out and web breaks can be avoided.
Siobhain Towell, Vice President of Marketing, OneVision, said, "OneVision is excited to be putting advanced cost-cutting ink savings features into the hands of printers and publishers with the introduction of PlugINKSAVEin. In building PlugINKSAVEin, we took into consideration the requirements of our customers, who cited the need for a customizable, yet flexible and straight-forward, approach to ink management in their prepress production processes. We strongly believe that we have accomplished these goals in developing PlugINKSAVEin."
