12 New Technologies Predicted to Change the Graphic Communications Industry
Utopia Digital Technologies
Avatrex Transportable Imaging is a thin multi-layer coating on a removable carrier that can be digitally printed and transferred to practically any surface. The material has built in adhesive and image protection properties. The judges were wowed by the technology’s versatility and image quality.
Xeikon’s VariLane technology is a software add-on to its X-800 Digital Front End. It allows printers to combine labels of different SKUs and sizes on the same digital print run. The judges recognized the advantages for printers when they can dynamically impose labels on the digital front end.
The i1Pro 2 spectrophotometer introduces a new level of color accuracy, an expanded set of features, and supports the latest measurement standards. When using this instrument, the ability to measure and then manage optically brightened papers was particularly impressive to the judges.
