Kodak Honored with Two Top Industry Awards for Digital Innovation in Graphic Communications
In his nomination letter for Dimensional Printing, Tony Seaman, Director, The University of Mississippi Publishing Center, lauded the impact Dimensional Printing has had on its business. The university hosted the first 2008 Presidential Debate and used Dimensional Printing to create a raised presidential seal and other elements for the invitations, pocket folders, and sponsor programs.
“We’ve seen an overall growth in our digital printing volume, and we believe the Kodak Dimensional Printing System is certainly contributing to this growth,” said Seaman. “It is opening doors and helping grow our volumes by establishing us as an innovative and dependable partner to our clients. It gives us a competitive advantage and helps us deliver much more than a standard digital print job.”
Prinergy Digital Workflow is designed specifically for the needs and requirements of digital printing workflows, such as higher job volumes, variable data printing, and short production runs. It connects to a wide range of digital presses on the market.
Prinergy Digital Workflow’s Rules Based Automation (RBA) feature impressed the judges. The technology eliminates processes, simplifies production, and automates procedures regardless of the level of complexity—all based on establishing predefined “rules” to determine how to handle all facets of print jobs. Using RBA, many errors are eliminated, touch points disappear, and the process is much faster. This is absolutely critical in today’s digital print production process where the jobs have to be processed as efficiently as possible. When integrated with Kodak Unified Workflow Solutions, zero-touch automation is achieved. Furthermore, Prinergy Digital Workflow is tightly integrated with Kodak Web to Print Solutions, enabling print service providers to become marketing service providers by giving their customers easy, flexible ways to order marketing printed materials anytime via the Internet.
Prinergy Digital Workflow is being honored for innovation in the same year that the Kodak Prinergy Workflow System, the industry’s first production workflow, is celebrating its tenth anniversary.
