David Watson, President and CEO, Ultimate Technographics, “We wanted to ensure everyone in the prepress industry really appreciates the massive speed difference of working in a client-server imposition workflow versus just on a single desktop, so what better way to demonstrate this than leveraging the power of OS X and the world’s fastest desktop computers, Apple Power Mac G5s” he continues “Impostrip’s client-server architecture, optimized for OS X, provides the unique flexibility of adding imposition workstations as a prepress shop’s needs grow, and all for the price of one package of Impostrip! We’ve experienced huge growth from prepress shops who’ve given up waiting for competing solutions to get to OS X, and many are pleased to see they can replace four or five imposition seats with Impostrip for less than the price of upgrading their existing software that still only runs only on Windows or in Classic mode”
Dan Wish, General Manager, xpedx, “Just this past August xpedx concluded a series of extensive imposition workflow testing and product evaluation, to ensure we were providing the most sophisticated and user friendly products to our customers’ he continues ” After evaluating Impostrip it became obvious that the support for OS X and the client-server imposition workflow provided an incredible edge in accelerating film and plate making in a prepress shop. Because xpedx is one of the largest Apple VARS (value added resellers) we knew that combining Impostrip and the new Apple Power Mac G5 would provide a new level of prepress productivity for xpedx customers.”
