While ILFORD print experts have devoted considerable research and development resources to crafting the BioMedia range, the high-quality prints and durable media could not have been brought to market without some valuable development partners. Mimaki USA conducted key testing of the BioMedia on its printers to ensure image quality and ink solvency while Caldera’s RIP solution profiled the media and established extremely accurate ICC profiles for popular large format printers. Helping to ensure that the ILFORD technology produces the high-quality results demanded by its creators, and these testing partners, ILFORD also worked with Alpha Imaging Technologies Inc. on product trials in true commercial printing settings.
“We found the new ILFORD BioMedia stood up to our most rigorous testing. We put the BioMedia films and rigid display boards to work, printing actual client deliverables and comparing them to our standard vinyl-based results, and the ILFORD BioMedia demonstrated some of the most high-quality prints you’ll find,” said Tom Sweeney, Vice President of Sales for Alpha Imaging Technologies Inc. “Compared, side-by-side, to its non-biodegradable competitors, the ILFORD BioMedia demonstrates that eco-friendly media can provide a suitable alternative without compromising print quality.”
The ILFORD BioMedia range can be pre-ordered immediately with shipment commencing at the beginning of January 2012. Commercial printers can contact their distributors for pricing
