“Once we demonstrated how the system works everyone immediately started to describe applications where they could see innovative use of the media – from menu boards to point of purchase displays” said Terry Amerine, Business Development Manager for Fujifilm’s wide format media products. “The idea of creating an “active wall” where Visual Magnetics media could be easily installed by in-store personnel got everyone thinking about the application possibilities. We expect Visual Magnetics will have a high adoption rate for graphic displays.”
Software and workflow technology continue to be an integral component of Fujifilm’s ever-increasing, ever-improving portfolio of solutions.
“Software allows our high speed, high output printers to stay productive,” said Jeffrey Nelson, Business Development Manager for Fujifilm’s high end inkjet equipment.
ColorGATE’s Production Server 7 with APPE reduces the time it takes to rip a file, Automation software optimizes workflow efficiency, and ColorPath ensures accurate color across multiple print platforms.
“When our software solutions are matched up with the high print speed capabilities of the Onset S40i and Uvistar Pro-8, jobs are turned quicker and it unlocks capacity to produce even more output,” added Nelson.
Show Sales Highlights
The Inca Onset S40i UV flatbed press on display at the show was sold to Laurel Graphics of Kent, Washington; and the Uvistar Pro-8 super-wide format printer also on display was sold to Color Ink of Sussex, Wisconsin.
“We normally do not close sales at the show unless the customer has already been to our demonstration center and confirmed that our solution will meet his business needs,” stated Chris Lomas, vice president of wide format sales for Fujifilm. “We performed several demos during this show and have several more demos scheduled in the coming weeks. And we expect strong sales going forward, as a direct result of exhibiting at the SGIA show.”
