Vio Signs Key Customers Increasing Use of ICS Remote Director

Press release from the issuing company

New York, NY -- March 20, 2008 – Increasing numbers of customers using the Vio Worldwide Certified Soft Proofing module are now utilizing Integrated Color Solutions' Remote Director as their monitor proofing solution.  At more and more customer sites --publishers, agencies, brand owners, and printers – Remote Director provides color file review and verification accuracy, allowing Vio VCSP users to review and approve color proofs and high-end color ads collaboratively, reliably and in real time, online.

Vio began working with ICS and Remote Director in 2005, when it developed and installed VCSP  -- the world's first end-to-end, color-managed, preflighted and Certified, Digital Supply Chain for color advertising -- at Associated Newspapers Limited in the U.K and subsequently at Associated's advertising supplier sites. This solution demonstrated the feasibility of reducing the cost of sending color advertisements to newspapers without compromising on quality, color integrity and the security of hard copy proofs.

Since then, VCSP has become a trusted and proven solution for other publications as well as those submitting ads to them. Vio has implemented this preferred workflow with key players throughout the industry, among them the Telegraph Media Group Limited, News International Ltd., the UK subsidiary of News Corporation; and most recently Mirror Group Newspapers, Trinity Mirror's national newspaper operation in the UK. This level of activity reinforces Vio's position as one of ICS's largest OEM partners.
