Kodak launched the new VIOLETNEWS GOLD Digital Plate. This latest business-enhancing plate upgrade for newspaper printers in the company's VIOLETNEWS Digital Plate range delivers improved performance, quality and consistency.
The VIOLETNEWS GOLD Digital Plate offers improved chemical resistance, faster imaging speeds, and better performance. The plate's notably lower chemistry consumption means newspaper printers can trim the costs associated with chemical use and waste management, while at the same time reduce the environmental impact of their operations.
Kodak showcased the VIOLETNEWS GOLD Digital Plate at IFRA Expo 2010, one of the leading events in the newspaper publishing industry that helps publishers compete on a stronger footing by highlighting technology and business models that enable them to streamline their work processes. The exhibition took place in Hamburg, Germany, October 4-6, 2010.
Working through its own new and dedicated developer and replenisher system, the VIOLETNEWS GOLD Digital Plate provides exceptional prepress performance in terms of developer consumption and processing bath life. Lower replenishment volume means lower overall developer consumption and improved bath capacity. Total developer consumption can be improved by up to 40 percent, making it a leading product in this market segment.
VIOLETNEWS GOLD Digital Plates are suitable for all standard newspaper resolution requirements and are available in all standard newspaper sizes. In addition, they are compatible across a wide range of exposure devices and processing systems. The plates have a wide tolerance to varied customer environments and offer consistent, high-quality results for the stringent demands of today's newspaper printers.
