House Estudios Durero Chooses KPG Matchprint Virtual Monitor Proofing
Press release from the issuing company
Norwalk, Connecticut, USA: Spanish prepress house – Estudios Durero, Bilbao – has placed an order for three Kodak Polychrome Graphics (KPG) Matchprint Virtual Proofing and Color Fidelity Systems for installation at its own site, at an advertising agency and a last one at a final customer. The installations will link critical stages of approval cycles and will provide an inclusive communications network.
Stéphane Lievain, KPG vice president Europe, comments on the order : “Estudios Durero is a visionary company and – with this order – is demonstrating how print communications is evolving. They are creating a truly digital environment involving both initial and end customers.”
Estudios Durero plans to transition these three Matchprint Virtual Proofing Systems to Matchprint Virtual Proofing LCD Systems shown at drupa for the first time and eventually to extend their use of monitor proofing in the future to include a Matchprint Virtual Press Side Proofing System for installation at the company´s printers.
“This first installation in Bilbao and the partnership with a customer of the characteristics of Estudios Durero allow us to be very confident to implement our remote proofing solutions as a standard for our market. It will create new opportunities of business for both companies and represents one more step to a total digital printing circle,” said Thierry Gasnier, SBU Manager for Spain and Portugal.
Ander Soriano, from Estudios Durero added: “Our main objective was always to maintain our position as a supplier of high quality service and products at reasonable prices and respecting deadlines. To achieve such objective we are always searching for new solutions and good partnership with customers and providers.”
“Our history with KPG started two years ago with the installation of an Approval XP4 and during this time, we confirmed that KPG is a company with very professional people that really understand Graphic Arts business. That is why we are sure that the recent acquisition of the Matchprint Virtual and the CFS Systems will help us to continue make our business grow.
KPG portfolio provides a broad range of products and services that bring new business opportunities to commercial, packaging and newspaper customers at all stages along the adoption, and expansion of digital workflows including CtP, digital printing and direct imaging presses. The products include an industry leading range of monitor proofing options as well as a range of digital output options and KPG´s first workflow solutions – the KPG DirectWorks Suite.
