Winners of the EDP Awards are decided by an independent panel of judges from Europe’s 21 leading trade publications, who evaluate the most exciting technical launches from the previous twelve months based on their “achievement, quality and cost efficiency.” When judging the Roland DG TrueVIS VG2 series, the panel said, “Roland DG has not adhered to existing concepts, but has redefined product development.” The judges were particularly impressed by the system’s breadth of color gamut, optimized color accuracy and color reproduction capability, plus a host of technological advancements to deliver high-precision print and cut performance.

“We're absolutely thrilled to have won the EDP Award for ‘Best Print & Cut Solution’ with the new TrueVIS VG2 series,” said Gillian Montanaro, Head of Marketing for Roland DG EMEA. “When we launched the VG2 series just a few months ago we were ready to show the industry something special, a solution that could genuinely change print professionals’ working lives in terms of color quality, turnaround speeds, reliability, longevity of their output and much more. The EDP Awards are widely regarded as the most prestigious awards for the digital print business in Europe so the title of ‘Best Print & Cut Solution’ absolutely reflects how incredible this machine is.”

Therefore, we challenged a lot of ideas by aiming to achieve the best printer in all aspects of hardware and software. It is a great honor to receive the EDP Award,” he said. “With the VG2, we hope that our customers will enjoy unleashing their creative possibilities and transforming their imaginations into reality.”
