May 19, 2010
BIRMINGHAM, UK—May 19, 2010—At Ipex, Kodak’s Print On-Demand Solutions Group will demonstrate how CREO Color Servers can help digital printers automate print-production processes to optimize their business. CREO Color Server Technology will drive several industry-leading printers and presses, including new models from Xerox, Konica Minolta, HP and Océ. Customers will learn about using workflow integration to enhance marketing and creative applications for direct mail, transactional, commercial printing, photo publishing products, and variable data printing.

“Our proven workflow technology helps commercial printers more efficiently drive automation and deliver customer-focused services,” said Hezy Rotman, General Manager, Kodak’s Print On-Demand Solutions Group, “This goes beyond the integration of conventional and digital environments into solutions that drive down costs and allow printers to deliver true multichannel marketing services. At this show, we are very happy to present our advanced capabilities of supporting our partners with their state-of-the-art presses, and to show our support for industry-standards such as Adobe PDF Print Engine 2 and Fogra”.
