CGS Publishing Technologies showed the future of packaging proofing

Press release from the issuing company

Hainburg (Germany) / Minneapolis MN – CGS Publishing Technologies International, global leader of color management solutions, digital proofing systems and specially formulated media, presented the latest version of the unique web-based Hybrid Proofing solution, ORIS Color Tuner // Web, on the Epson booth during the recent LabelExpo Europe. The latest version already supports all possibilities of the ground breaking new Epson proofer, which features Epson UltraChrome inks with White Ink technology. Complementing each other, it's the perfect combination tailored to answer the specific needs of the packing industry. Finally, color accurate high quality contract packaging proofs on an affordable system have become reality. The new Epson proofer will be available at the beginning of next year.

Trevor Haworth, CEO of CGS Publishing Technologies explains in more detail: "Flexible packaging has been the last domain of expensive cumbersome thermal proofing systems, as one prerequisite is the ability of printing white on clear substrates. With the new Epson Stylus Pro WT7900 and ORIS Color Tuner // Web, packaging proofing on inkjet systems got serious. This is a combination packaging designers, prepress companies and printers have been waiting for a long time. Many leading packaging companies worldwide rely on ORIS Color Tuner in their everyday production. Contrary to many competitive products, ORIS Color Tuner // Web already includes all features necessary to produce high-end contract quality packaging proofs or mock-ups. Now with ORIS Color Tuner // Web, all these features have been combined with an intuitive web-based user interface with the added ability to produce soft proofs with the same patented color management engine and the same quality that ORIS stands for. Color management for packaging is probably the most complex and demanding in graphics arts and CGS' years of experience, incorporated in the latest ORIS Color Tuner // Web version driving the new Epson model, now provide the ideal solution for this dynamic growth market. CGS is developing further specific color management products and applications designed to suit the needs of the packaging industry, closely cooperating with leading packaging companies, adding to an already impressive solution portfolio for this segment of the industry."
