CGS to launch remote proofing, control and collaboration apps at drupa

Press release from the issuing company

Hainburg, Germany (March 16, 2004) -- At Drupa 2004, CGS Publishing Technologies International GmbH will introduce a new, comprehensive approach to color contract proofing, involving multiple print buyer and print producer locations. ORIS Global Proofing will include numerous ease-of use enhancements to the existing ORIS line, as well as the collaborative tools in its new ORIS Color Markup package. In addition, at Drupa, the company will unveil a new soft proofing technology, based on its ORIS Works and PDF Tuner technologies. “Proofing can no longer be limited to a single printer or trade shop,” said CGS President Andreas Kämmerer. “As printing becomes a distributed, worldwide process, with ever-shrinking timelines, precise, consistent proofing must occur at multiple locations, simultaneously.” The components of ORIS Global Proofing allow for identical hard copy proofs to be created anywhere in the world – without requiring advanced color expertise at each location. One vital aspect of the approach is the use of software Wizards in ORIS Color Tuner 5.1, which will make the program’s Automatic Calibration even easier. At Drupa, the company will demonstrate the system’s ability to easily bring like model printers into alignment with a common standard. ORIS Certified Proof 1.1, on both Mac and Windows, will also be unveiled, providing enhanced per-proof quality control at the print buyer site. In addition to its proofing software, CGS will also announce several new proofing substrates at the show, as well as significant enhancements to its ORIS Works hotfolder-based workflow environment and its high-end editing package, ORIS PDF Tuner.
