Southern California Graphics Integrates ICS Remote Director with MediaBank System

Press release from the issuing company

New York, NY - July 29, 2008 - Southern California Graphics (SCG), based in Culver City, is one of America's leading premedia and printing organizations. SCG's design, agency and entertainment industry clients require multiple versions of most jobs in order to fulfill cross-media, language, and size variables for international campaigns. Critical to the process is the MediaBank DAM (Digital Asset Management) system that SCG and its clients rely on to manage and distribute file assets.
To accommodate clients' high-end color and quality needs, SCG was, until recently, creating upwards of 1000 hard proofs every month. Associated costs and time spent were unacceptable, and so the company selected ICS Remote Director as its new Monitor Proofing solution.
Integrated Color Solutions' Remote Director monitor proofing solution is designed for easy integration with systems used by publishers, agencies, brand owners, and printers. Remote Director provides color file review and verification accuracy, allowing SCG staff and clients to review and approve color proofs collaboratively, reliably and in real time, online.
SCG Calls Remote Director an "Enterprise-Class Solution"
SCG soon found that Remote Director met its needs as an "enterprise-class" solution. Seamless and flexible integration within all types of internal and client workflows, reduced costs, and an easy learning curve add up to what George Mendoza, Director of Digital Services at SCG, calls dramatic results.
All Systems Integration Calls Remote Director "Best of Breed"
Steve Shinnick, Co-Founder and VP of Sales for All Systems Integration (ASI), says, "SCG made the choice to invest in open architecture products back in 2004, with the long term goal of being able to compete much more effectively in the market through the adoption of 'best of breed' products."  He says that Remote Director is a great example of how this strategy has worked to SCG's benefit. The integration was done in a matter of weeks and, he says, "Remote Director is a great addition to SCG's core MediaBank solution.  A proprietary solution would have seriously delayed SCG's ability to address the client opportunities they faced".
