Press release from the issuing company

Ridgefield Park, NJ - Agfa Graphics announced today that Cameron Advertising Displays Ltd. has invested in the :M Press Tiger, a first in North America. The Toronto-based company is one of the most successful screen printing shops in Canada. With over 60 years of servicing high-profile customers and annual sales exceeding 10 million dollars, Cameron has its sight on the future.

Cameron's senior management has always observed market trends, technological innovations and consumer demand. As shifts in the marketplace began to take shape management knew they would need to upgrade technology to maintain profitable growth.

According to Cameron's Vice-President, Reid Mason, "We saw a lot of other digital systems, but at the end of the day, they didn't live up to their sales pitch or our requirements. When we saw the :M-Press Tiger in action, that's when we knew it was the right system for us." Mason also offered, "With the :M-Press Tiger, we have the fastest system on the market. And, we will be able to produce higher print quality with improved productivity. Overall, this just makes good business sense for Cameron Advertising Displays Ltd. as the system meets our aggressive quality and ROI requirements." Cameron Advertising Displays Ltd. is set to install the :M-Press Tiger in the second quarter of 2010.

At Print 09 in Chicago, Agfa Graphics announced major improvements to the :M-Press system resulting in higher printing speeds and better output quality. The :M-Press Tiger can print 17,000 ft. an hour which is three times faster than its predecessor with an unparalleled image quality. This high-speed flatbed inkjet press is co-developed by Thieme and Agfa and features new printhead technology, auto head positioning and tuning. The :M-Press Tiger is the perfect solution for high-volume POP providers and other traditional screen printing applications.
