With Access All Areas as its motto, ColorGATE will present a wide range of product solutions at this year’s FESPA Digital Europe (booth C20 / Hall A4).
“Requirements and business models in the print services sector are changing dramatically,” said ColorGATE Managing Director Thomas Kirschner. “The trend is moving clearly in the direction of mixed production environments. With our new motto of ‘Access All Areas’, we want to make one thing clear: Regardless of how and which technology print services providers use to produce their products today – we at ColorGATE always have the optimal solution to meet your requirements. As a result, we can provide highly effective support to enable you to tap into new markets and sales areas.”
Here are some of the topics that ColorGATE will be presenting at the FESPA:
CG Web to Print – the new standard for LFP standard products
A professional W2P solution for large-format printing starting at a sensational EUR 199 a month – that is certain to create quite a commotion among the experts. As one of its most spectacular features, CG Web to Print includes a module option that provides direct access to more than 12 million top-quality images from Fotolia, the renowned stock photo agency, at one click of the mouse. The basic version of the solution already makes it possible to create and manage open and closed shops.
Screen Prepress Area
The latest developments in the ColorGATE system solutions for screen prepress include chemical-free film production, color- and raster-accurate contract digital proofing according to international standards and the direct control of modern CtS systems.
Campaign Printing Area
PS6 UXT Campaign Printing, the most powerful version of the successful Productionserver 6 RIP software from ColorGATE, makes it possible to align all digital systems as far as possible with such existing ISO prints standards as Fogra, GRACoL and G7 to allow highest-quality, color-consistent campaign printing in mixed production environments. This is particularly interesting when a project involves digital as well as offset print jobs.
Metallic Printing Area
Not one, but two, special editions of Productionserver 6 RIP software make it possible to generate spectacular metallic effects in outstanding quality on banners, posters, vehicle wraps, in/outdoor signs, window decorations and many more products. Far more than 500 impressive metallic colors can be created, including gold and bronze. ColorGATE’s unique layering technique also makes it possible to automate such complex production processes as creating silver channels on the fly, for example.
Color Optimizer Area
“More motif for the money” is the motto for ColorGATE’s most recent addition to its product solutions, the PS6 Color Optimizer. This very interesting product bundles ColorGATE’s outstanding competences in the fields of DeviceLink and Ink Saver technology and focuses in particular on print services providers who use RIP software made by other vendors: Regardless of whether the RIPs are from Caldera, Onyx or Wasatch – the PS6 Color Optimizer reduces ink costs by up to 30 percent and enables production based on binding color standards thanks to fully automatic color space transformation. As a result, the print services provider can continue to use his familiar production environment as before and still profit from the powerful functions provided by the ColorGATE RIP software.
