CGS Joins XEROX Business Partner Program

Press release from the issuing company

HAINBURG/MINNEAPOLIS MN, May 8, 2008 – CGS Publishing Technologies, the leading manufacturer of inkjet color management solutions, announces it has been approved as a Xerox Business Partner. ORIS Press Matcher product integrates with Xerox iGen3 Digital Production Press and Xerox DocuColor 8000/260/250/242 enabling Xerox users to automatically create high quality color files for multiple press conditions. Its advanced color mapping process applies to wide format output, digital printers and digital presses. Users can produce long run first prints on a sheetfed press and short run reprints on a Xerox digital press, producing consistent and repeatable color results on both devices.

CGS will be exhibiting ORIS Press Matcher, ORIS Certified Proof, and ORIS Soft Proof in the Xerox booth at Drupa to be held May 29 through June 11. Xerox will be exhibiting in Hall 8B at the Düsseldorf Messe.

Trevor Haworth, CEO of CGS Publishing Technologies commenting on the relationship with Xerox stated, "We are pleased that Xerox has invited us to be a Xerox Business Partner. We have worked closely with the Xerox engineering team to create a front end solution combining the powerful color management tools of ORIS Press Matcher with the quality and production capabilities of Xerox digital presses."

ORIS Press Matcher integrates with the Xerox FreeFlow Process Manager system to create a highly automated workflow solution to produce printed results supporting SWOP, GRACoL and Fogra standards and the G7 process. The color management tools of ORIS Press Matcher are combined with the automation of FreeFlow incorporating the automated spot color management and prepress tools of Process Manager to easily prepare files for print with the highest level of color accuracy.

"ORIS Press Matcher is ideally suited for current and future users of the Xerox iGen3 and DocuColor presses who require color accurate results between digital color and conventional sheetfed offset presses", states Mike Wolfgang, CGS Director, Digital Print Solutions. "Also, ORIS Press Matcher is an ideal product for iGen3 customers needing accurate management between multiple iGen3s, especially those in different geographic locations."

As a Xerox Business Partner, CGS sales, pre-sales and post-sales personnel work directly with the Xerox sales team to provide ORIS color management solutions to users of Xerox digital presses. ORIS Press Matcher integrates with both existing FreeFlow Process Manager users and with new installations.
