The new project management system that was featured at the show, :Delano 3.0, is highlighted by several new features that provide more functionality for prepress and print professionals, including easier uploading of content, automatic conversion of spot colors to CMYK and integrated softproofing. Based both on Agfa’s technological innovations and feedback from existing :Delano customers worldwide, the new solution underlines Agfa’s commitment to offering the most powerful project management solutions.
Inkjet also continues to be a growing and very important part of Agfa’s portfolio. “The interest we saw in inkjet at our booth helped us tell Agfa’s inkjet story fully and completely. That is equally important for us to do in order to give customers the facts they need to make informed decisions,” said Julian Robledo, General Manager, inkjet solutions, North America. “Next month we will continue to present the Agfa inkjet picture at SGIA, further promoting both the technology and Agfa’s leading role in it.”
