Press release from the issuing company

Ridgefield Park, NJ - Agfa Graphics announced today that the company will be demonstrating its JDF-based workflow automation and integration solutions, including :Apogee Prepress and :Apogee Portal, at the 2010 IDEAlliance + IPA Technical Conference and EXPO. The EXPO runs June 7-8 and is being held at the Westin O'Hare Hotel, Rosemont, IL.

At the event, Agfa technology experts will be showing, in a variety of JDF integration scenarios, how :Apogee Prepress, Agfa's prepress production hub, and :Apogee Portal, which allows all participants throughout the graphic communications process to collaborate on projects and tasks within a 24/7 accessible web-environment, can assist commercial printers.

"Agfa's JDF-enabled workflow solutions help commercial printers gain productivity, reduce the number of steps before printing and decrease the costs of reworks and errors," said Deborah Hutcheson, director of marketing, Agfa Graphics, North America. "Increased automation gives production environments the ability to get more done more cost-effectively."

Agfa will also be participating in the IPA Ink Optimization RoundUP, an independent technical evaluation of the state of commercially available ink optimization solutions. :Apogee InkSave offers printers an automated solution for CMYK ink optimization, fully integrated with :Apogee Prepress, to increase quality and consistency on press while saving time and money.
