Press release from the issuing company

Norwalk, Connecticut, USA — A mid-sized printer and prepress shop for the book publishing industry is among the newest users enjoying faster turnaround time and better collaboration with the Kodak Polychrome Graphics Matchprint Virtual Proofing System. Coral Graphics, which primarily handles book cover prepress work, joined a growing number of Matchprint Virtual Proofing system users when it installed the SWOP-certified monitor proofing solution at its Hicksville, N.Y. facility. “Our customers demand the highest quality color and the Matchprint Virtual Proofing system meets their stringent requirements,” said Dave Liess, President and Chief Executive Officer, Coral Graphics. “Initial customer feedback has been excellent. Our customers appreciate the fact that we’re investing in the latest technology to help them save time and money.” By enabling online viewing of the many rounds of proofing that occur before a file is approved for print, the Matchprint Virtual Proofing system speeds up the approval process and fosters stronger collaboration among those involved in the production process. The Matchprint Virtual Proofing system can be used for content, imposition and color-critical proofing, predicting press results, checking for file integrity, routing jobs for all levels of approval and communicating print expectations. “By removing time and distance, the Matchprint Virtual Proofing system enables Coral to offer a more efficient workflow to their major clients,” said Rob Pipe, Business Director, Virtual Proofing, KPG. “We’re glad to see our solutions helping customers create opportunities for growth.” “We’ve worked with KPG for years and trust them to bring us smart solutions like the Matchprint Virtual system,” added Liess. “Color accurate monitor proofing gives us a distinct advantage when servicing existing clients and attracting new ones.” The Matchprint Virtual Proofing System consists of high-end, customized CRT monitors, proprietary color management technologies and a suite of Web-based image viewing and collaboration tools from RealTimeImage. Designed to provide the convenience and ease of use that graphic arts professionals have come to expect from digital technology, the Matchprint Virtual Proofing System is compatible with commonly used graphic arts file formats such as Scitex CT/LW, Tiff-IT, PDF, DCS, DCS II, PS, EPS and Tiff, and uses an application service provider model that is built on a secure and robust database that allows users to access files through their standard Web browsers. Proofs can be viewed and managed entirely online, including the ability to make annotations and mark-ups similar to hard-copy proofs.
