Press release from the issuing company

ROCHESTER, N.Y. -- Dr. Yee S. Ng, senior research associate at NexPress Solutions LLC, has been named a Fellow of the Society for Imaging Science and Technology (IS&T), NexPress announced today. Dr. Peter Burns, chair of IS&T’s Honors and Awards Committee, said Ng was honored for his "outstanding contributions in the field of imaging." The IS&T previously honored Ng with its prestigious Chester F. Carlson Award in 2000 for his contributions to the field of electrophotography, including pioneering work in the development and application of LED arrays, processes, machine concepts and imaging processing to high-speed, high-volume electrophotography. "It is a great honor to be recognized -- not once, but twice -- by my peers at the IS&T," Ng said. "This honor, however, is not just for me but for all my collaborators at NexPress Solutions -- with whom I share this recognition." Ng played a key role in development of the award-winning NexPress 2100 digital production color press. He also was instrumental in the development of the Digimaster 9110 print system for digital high-volume black-and white production. Ng currently holds more than 80 U.S. patents. In addition to his IS&T awards, Ng was a Kodak Distinguished Inventor and was honored with the Xerox research award for Ph.D. research from Pennsylvania State University. Ng earned a doctorate degree in physics and a master's degree in electrical engineering from Pennsylvania State University, and a bachelor's degree in engineering physics from the University of Illinois. He is a senior member of the IEEE, and a member of the American Physical Society, the N.Y. Academy of Sciences, the American Association for the Advancement of Sciences, IS&T, IS&T’s NIP Technical Leadership Council and the National Committee for Information Technology Standards (INCITS-W1) technical committee. He also was the general chairman of IS&T’s NIP19 conference (International Conference on Digital Printing Technologies) in 2003.
