RealTimeImage to Release RealTimeProof 5.0 at drupa 2004
Press release from the issuing company
Athens, Greece - February 26, 2004 - RealTimeImage says today that the commercial release of RealTimeProof 5.0, which further increases the ROI benefits of conducting the approval process online, will take place at drupa 2004. The full version release will include a "multiple-view" and "compare" feature set, permitting simultaneous streaming, viewing, collaboration on, annotation and comparison of several file versions in high resolution; new secure approval authentication and "lockout" features; and Macintosh Safari browser support. The "compare" function not only identifies and highlights version differences, it also creates and streams the "difference" between the selected versions - on the fly - to the viewer(s). As part of the anticipated acquisition of RealTimeImage's Graphic Arts division by Kodak Polychrome Graphics (KPG), RealTimeProof 5.0 is set to be demonstrated at the KPG booth at drupa.
RealTimeProof 5.0 will be available for both the ASP and client/server configurations of RealTimeProof solutions.
"We started with a technology kernel that was version 1.0 exactly 5 years ago," says Yehuda Messinger, Executive Vice President, RealTimeImage Graphic Arts division.
"RealTimeProof 5.0 is the culmination of team efforts that have included thousands of users worldwide who believe in our technology and products, and went beyond the call of duty to help RealTimeImage set a standard for the online proofing category."
The company says that these improved approval efficiencies have been clearly demonstrated with the first beta customers of RealTimeProof 5.0. "The benefits of RealTimeProof 5.0," says Messinger, "are even more critical for customers who conduct a multi-stakeholder approval workflow, such as in the case of packaging print providers and consumer goods companies.
"Though our products effectively address the entire graphic arts market, significant portions of the RealTimeProof 5.0 specification came from these specific market segments, which have already shown tremendous adoption of our products throughout the years."
