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.
Rochester Institute of Technology has announced the commercial launch of PSAsm Certification. PSAsm Certification, or Printing Standards Audit Certification, is a rigorous, objective process for assessing a printer's ability to operate a standards-compliant workflow. Such workflows are fundamental to creating efficient print supply chains, especially as printers adopt new technologies and supply chains become more international in character. By attaining PSA Certification, printers can objectively demonstrate that they have mastered the use of standards in the workflows they operate.
PSA development began more than a year ago when professor Robert Chung of RIT's School of Print Media surveyed standards assessment practices with international leaders including KEE Consultants (France), Fogra (Germany), Ugra (Switzerland), SCGM (Netherlands), BPiF (UK) and IDEAlliance (U.S.). Each of these organizations welcomed Chung and contributed to the development of RIT's global approach to certification. During this period, he was able to engage in extensive conversations with experts in the field and participate in the training programs when they were offered.
