New ProImage America, Inc. will be showcasing at Graph Expo NewsWay Press Register, a unique software solution that significantly improves press registration. Also on show will be an enhanced version of OnColor ECO, the popular cost-cutting ink optimization solution, and Xtent Media, a browser-based multi-publishing platform.
“We have a leading global position within the newspaper web-offset printing technology industry and we are now bringing our proven solutions to other commercial printers and publishers wishing to enhance quality and reduce cost,” says Rick Shafranek, Vice President, Sales, ProImage.
Xtent Media provides workflow management, reporting and control for Adobe® InDesign users – whether for online, mobile or print output - in a completely collaborative environment.
Press Register overcomes the costly problems caused by press mechanical misalignment and by paper stretch - FanOut or Web Growth – created by the ink and water applied to paper that is under tension and moving at high speed. Press Register makes it possible to resize, rotate, mirror and shift the Tiff separations at precise increments to more effectively compensate for known press mis-registration issues. The result is perfect registration without the time needed to adjust the press.
OnColor ECO automatically reduces ink consumption on offset presses while maintaining the highest possible print quality. Proven to save up to 30% of ink cost, new features to be shown at Graph Expo provide increased automation, an XML interface that enables third-party applications to take control of OnColor ECO, additional image processing functions such as sharpening and artefact removal, and intelligence to eliminate overprint issues - to provide even greater ink savings.
