CGS ORIS Color Tuner // Web Supports the Latest Roland Metallic and UV-LED Inkjet Printer/Cutters for the Ultimate Solution of Packaging Proofing

The new Roland DG VersaCAMM 54" VS-540, 42" VS-420 and 30" VS-300 eco solvent printer/cutters released today feature the award-winning Metallic Silver ink that not only adds luxury to signs and banners but also provides a unique and cost effective solution to package proofing and mock-ups.

Hamamatsu, Japan /Hainburg, Germany/ Minneapolis, Minnesota / (September 1, 2010) Roland DG Corporation, a leading worldwide provider of wide-format inkjet printers and printer/cutters, and CGS Publishing Technologies International, a global leader of color management solutions, digital proofing solutions and specially formulated media, announced today that the version 1.2 of the award-winning ORIS Color Tuner // Web fully supports the entire range of the Roland VersaCAMM VS series inkjet printer/cutters featuring Metallic Silver and White ECO-SOL MAX inks.

Cooperating closely with Roland DG and several leading brand-oriented packaging companies worldwide, CGS has developed a breakthrough solution that finally answers the requirements for packaging proofing. There is a growing trend in consumer packaging for increasingly using metallic ink and elaborate print finishing on a growing number of substrates, including PE and PET plastics, composite materials, transparent and aluminum foils. This creates a number of costly problems at the design and prepress stage as the proofing technology, including white and metallic, has been inaccurate, cumbersome and expensive.

ORIS Color Tuner // Web, with its patented four dimensional iterative color matching software, gives users the choice of continuous or halftone output with the same color accuracy. The ORIS ScreenDot Plus option processes final 1-Bit files or lets the user chose from a number of built-in screen sets and line rulings. The ECO-SOL MAX high-density inks including Metallic Silver and White offer a wide process color gamut and can be used on a wide range of substrates. The Roland Print&Cut feature enables the production of color accurate short run labels without press plates or die cutting required.

Printing industry customers who need the versatility to print on any kind of substrates that match the original materials and want to simulate the unique finishing effects like spot varnish and embossing, will prefer the range of Roland VersaUV UV-LED inkjet printer/cutters, the 30" LEC-330 and the new 54" LEC-540, featuring ECO-UV inks in CMYK, White and Clear gloss, also supported by ORIS Color Tuner // Web.

Kevin Shigenoya, Executive Officer & General Manager, Product Marketing Department, Roland DG Corporation, comments: "When we were shown the first actual production proofs produced on the VersaCAMM 64" VS-640 with ORIS Color Tuner // Web at a CGS beta customer, we were amazed by the unique quality and color accuracy of the combined solution. We expect it to revolutionize the packaging market in a very short period of time. Now designs with white and metallic vignettes, varying opacities and complex spread and chokes can be correctly interpreted and proofed."

Trevor Haworth, CEO of CGS Publishing Technologies comments: "Following on from our successes with the Roland VersaUV line, we are excited that our close cooperation with Roland DG now extends to two product lines and various sizes of printers giving users the choice and providing significant value to package designers and production companies, finally making the legacy technology that has dominated packaging proofing for so long obsolete."
