Alwan Color Expertise launches the PC version of its leading print standardization solution at GraphExpo'11 booth 439
Lyon, August 23, 2011, Alwan Color Expertise, a world leader in Color Management and Standardization technologies will launch the new PC version of its PRINT Standardizer™ software at GraphExpo'11, booth 439, September 10-14 2011.
Alwan PRINT Standardizer v3.5, featuring a new automated G7™ and ISO 12647 conformance feature will be demonstrated in combination with Digital Information InkZone closed-loop solution.
David Hunter, Alwan Color Expertise's representative for North America is excited about the new opportunities that Alwan's cross-platform solution offer to the market: "With PRINT Standardizer Mac and PC versions, Hunter says, "Alwan offers its users the possibility to take automation to the next level regardless of their press instrument, closed-loop solution, their prepress workflow or their hardware platform of choice."
Press embedded as well as press-side solutions such as InkZone closed loop automatically adjust the ink keys for printed solids to match GRACoL™ and ISO coated. Alwan PRINT Standardizer closed loop combined with the CTP RIP can manually or automatically adjust the compensation curves for NPDC, TVI, and Spread to match GRACoL™ and ISO coated as well. Alwan PRINT Standardizer v3.5 delivers printers a unique and unprecedented fully automated Instrument-to-RIP-to-Press closed loop system that produces G7™ and ISO 12647 compliant jobs automatically and without interruption.
Moreover, in case a mechanical problem is suspected on the printer or the press, maintenance staff get warnings that can help them identify the source of the problem in order to solve it pre-emptively and quickly. In addition, the REAL TIME reports for the Press operator act as a GPS to direct the operators adjustments of Density on the press to continually match the GRACoL and ISO coated Reference condition.
Michael Haenni, Digital Information's General Manager is thrilled: "DI has been instrumental since years in helping printers print to ISO on any press of any make and of any age. The success of InkZone software with thousands of copies installed worldwide show the importance for printers to decrease make ready time in order to continue making profits with shorter print runs. However, our customers have been increasingly asking us lately for a more complete solution that not only adjusts solids on press automatically, which InkZone does brilliantly, but also adjust the gray balance, TVI and spread for a full G7™ and ISO 12647 compliance."
When we assessed the available software that accomplish or claim to do that on the market, we clearly saw that Alwan PRINT Standardizer solution is the ideal complement of InkZone. Automated, Customizable, and easy-to-use after installation, the combined Di and Alwan solution is the only solution available today that provides a fully automated way of printing practically every production sheet to standards. Satisfaction Guaranteed.
Come and see for yourself on our booth, Di and Alwan teams will be happy to show you live how you can make you press, any press, print to standards.
