ICS set to show Remote Director and new press check option at Graph Expo

Press release from the issuing company

New York; September 23, 2003 –Integrated Color Solutions (ICS) will tap Graph Expo 2003 next week to showcase its Remote Director display-based contract proofing system for the first time at a major public forum, using North America’s premiere graphics exposition to demonstrate the color accuracy of its GATF award-winning, SWOP certified monitor proofing system. Color Accuracy Demonstrations In booth #4352, Graph Expo attendees will be invited to compare Remote Director proofs to hard proofs in demonstrations from test files and customer files on the show floor. The comparisons will demonstrate key features of the Remote Director system and its ability to deliver accurate repeatable color compared to typical hard proofs. ICS also will unveil and demonstrate a new press-side proofing option to Remote Director that enables print buyers to make color-accurate, remote press checks without leaving their desks. The new option was used early this month by prepress provider C-t-PLUS and its printing affiliate Inland Press to conduct the first remote color accurate press check for Guest Informant. The Guest Informant city guidebooks printed during that press run, which were produced to General Requirements for Applications in Commercial Offset Lithography (GRACoL),are now available at W Hotels in cities from New York to Sydney, Australia. On the Graph Expo show floor, ICS will scan attendees’ hardcopy output, apply ICC color profiles and display the output through the Remote Director system to simulate how this system can provide a remote “Press OK”. “At Graph Expo, we invite creatives, publishers, color experts and printers to experience firsthand the speed, color accuracy and flexibility of the Remote Director system and see how it can be used throughout the production process to maintain jobs completely in digital form until final output,” said Jeffrey Silverman, President, ICS. “Keeping the job in digital form and properly controlling color offers enormous advantages --eliminating geographical barriers, dramatically reducing costs and speeding the workflow of color critical jobs.”
