VALHALLA, NY—March 9, 2009—Whether it’s a small, local newspaper or a large, national chain, Fujifilm Graphic Systems U.S.A., Inc. is able to provide publishers with customized solutions designed to fit their specific needs. Thanks to partnerships with the industry’s leading manufacturers and our own groundbreaking technologies, Fujifilm is uniquely poised to help publishers contend with the challenges that face them. Fujifilm will highlight a number of these solutions during Media change 2009, taking place on March 9-11, 2009 at Las Vegas’ Mandalay Bay.
“We’re continuously working to create better and more efficient solutions, as well as provide in-depth expertise and support, for our newspaper customers,” says Lane Palmer, Fujifilm’s vice president for newspaper sales. “They rely on us to help them streamline their workflows and manage their costs all while ensuring optimum quality. We take that job very seriously.”
During this year’s Media Xchange, Fujifilm will present the new Krause LS Jet 350 platesetter, capable of output speeds up to 350 plates per hour. Aimed at newspaper publishers requiring a high volume of throughput, the LS Jet 350 is part of a family of CTP devices, all upgradeable for enhanced productivity. The Krause LS Jet 350 also features a smaller footprint and left or right operation, making it an easy addition in any prepress environment.
Fujifilm will also highlight Screen’s PlateRite News 2000 series of CTP devices, which provides reliability and high quality in a compact and productive thermal platesetter. Four models are included in the series and range from a speedy 106 broadsheet plates per hour (PlateRite News 2000S+) to 58 broadsheet plates per hour with the economical PlateRite News 2000E. All of the devices are capable of handling plates from 11.5” x 18.1” to 38.5” x 26.9” and are engineered for single or dual plate loading, so two broadsheet plates can be loaded simultaneously.
