Press release from the issuing company
Norwalk, Connecticut, USA — Kodak Polychrome Graphics (KPG) invites the book and electronic publishing industry to see its digital business solutions at the Print Media Conference and Expo from March 15th–17th at the New York Hilton. KPG’s solutions, all designed to optimize digital workflows, can be found at booth 1113.
“Our customers in the publishing industry face unique business challenges that we are dedicated to solving,” said Michele Laird-Williams, Director, Print Media Group, KPG. “From reducing turnaround time to increasing collaboration with clients and improving profitability, our digital solutions help customers take full advantage of a digital workflow.”
KPG’s product lineup at the Print Media Conference and Expo covers the workflow spectrum from data storage to proofing to ink on paper. Showcased solutions include the Matchprint Virtual Proofing System, the Matchprint Professional Server with Canon CLC 1140/1180 printer, and the ExaStore Scalable Storage Cluster. KPG will also highlight the printing capabilities of the Kodak Polychrome Graphics DirectPress 5034 System and the color proofing power of the Kodak Approval NX Digital Color Imaging System.
• Matchprint Virtual Proofing System — By enabling color-accurate monitor proofing, the SWOP certified Matchprint Virtual Proofing System takes time out of the print production process, speeds up proof approvals and fosters stronger collaboration among everyone involved in the production process. The Matchprint Virtual Proofing System delivers color-critical proofs to the desktop using unique KPG color science that ensures color accuracy — monitor-to-monitor, site-to-site and monitor-to-hardcopy.
• ExaStore Scalable Storage Cluster — Printers and pre-media companies simplify the complex task of data storage. The ExaStore system simplifies complex storage networks by allowing printers and prepress shops to consolidate their data storage into a single, easily upgradeable and easily managed system. Exanet provides for virtually unlimited capacity and bandwidth, file server consolidation, and streamlined management.
• Matchprint Professional Server — Together with the Canon CLC 1140/1180 printer, the SWOP certified Matchprint Professional Server enables content creators, prepress and print professionals to produce high-quality comps, proofs, and prints that consistently and accurately simulate Matchprint color proofs. The software's added workflow functionality for digital printing provides a level of efficiency that makes the Matchprint Professional Server powerful for short-run, color-critical printing.
• KPG DirectPress 5034 DI System — A two-page, four-color digital imaging press, the KPG DirectPress 5034 combines the quality advantages of offset printing with the workflow and automation benefits of digital printing. This combination presents a new growth opportunity for commercial printers, in-plants, trade shops, or digital service bureaus that want to tap into the growing demand for high-quality, quick-turnaround, short-run, four-color work.
• Approval NX Digital Color Imaging System — The Kodak Approval NX system uses the latest in thermal imaging technology to produce the industry's most versatile and accurate prediction of on-press performance. Featuring Rapid Recipe Color technology, the Kodak Approval NX system can accurately produce millions of spot colors in a fraction of the time currently possible with its predecessor, the Kodak Approval XP system. Rapid Recipe Color technology saves significant time by laying down up to four densities each of CMYK and spot colors simultaneously, instead of one at a time.
