All printers running live at the booth will feature Fujifilm and Ultraflex wide format media. Sign professionals will be able to view and get "hands-on" access with a variety of media, including a color-matched array of banner materials, premium papers, adhesive backed vinyl, backlit media, canvas, wall and floor graphic media, and perforated window film. All of the media is designed for use on flatbed and roll print equipment and is the perfect complement to Fujifilm's printer and ink solutions, offering sign printers innovative ways to produce indoor and outdoor signage for virtually any application.
Fujifilm will demonstrate a suite of software components at ISA this year. First is Fujifilm's Taskero Universe ColorPath Verified, which monitors performance and ensures that printers achieve consistent color output from different devices. Taskero Universe ColorPath Verified can be customized to each individual shop owner's specifications when configured with a web-based anytime/anywhere monitoring solution. Backed by Fujifilm's Professional Services Group, customers are alerted when a device is operating below established standards.
Also on display this year at ISA will be ColorGate ProductionServer 6, which can drive over 750 proofers, printers and cutters, including Fujifilm's complete portfolio of large format solutions. With ColorGate, customers are able to use one central RIP and one color management system across all of the devices in their shop, allowing them to achieve predictable results and consistent color. The coordinated Quality Assurance Module (QAM) and Media Device Synchronization (MDS) module within ColorGate assure that you will have optimal quality control across multiple print platforms.
ColorGate's Ink Optimizer allows customers to save 15-20 percent on ink consumption with their solvent, latex or UV printer. A module within ColorGate ProductionServer, ink optimization is seamlessly integrated within the RIP to reduce ink usage without creating new profiles. Ink Optimizer makes use of specially designed software to generate an optimized print without compromising print quality.
Fujifilm will also demonstrate the functionality and ease of use of pre-press tools for large format inkjet printers and finishing systems. Fujifilm will introduce a new layout tool that simplifies and automates the process of layout and nesting of jobs for printing and cutting, making certain that the most cost-efficient layout is used, saving time and money. A new preflight tool helps identify problems before printing and provides tools to help fix problems automatically.
"We are particularly excited about ISA this year," said Mitch Bode, vice president, Wide Format and Specialty Ink Systems. "This show gives us the opportunity to demonstrate our new strengths and capabilities, to offer sign and display graphics print shops money-saving solutions designed to help them grow their businesses. Visitors to our booth will be able to see our latest printing technology in action, along with our inks, wide format media, and software solutions."
Demonstrations will run daily on the showroom floor at booth # 5353.
