Via WhatTheyThink? -- Press release from the issuing company

Hainburg (Germany) / Minneapolis, MN – CGS Publishing Technologies International, global leader of color management solutions, digital proofing solutions and specially formulated media, is pleased to announce, QuantumDigital, Inc. of Austin, Texas recently installed ORIS Press Matcher Pro to ensure consistent color across printing processes, to achieve a higher standard of color management for its customers.

QuantumDigital was founded in 1986 with a focus on providing marketing assistance to real estate agents.  Today, QuantumDigital has evolved into a complete online service provider for direct mail, on-demand printing and e-marketing with more than 100 employees.  QuantumDigital has pioneered several advances in the direct marketing industry including personalization, automation and a 24-hour turnaround on mailed and printed pieces.   While continuing to serve the real estate industry, QuantumDigital has expanded its customer base to include many Fortune 1000 companies across the United States and Canada. QuantumDigital prints from four Xerox iGen3TM digital presses and provides postal services for its customers, all managed by an in-house facility.  QuantumDigital is one of eight G7 Master Printers in Texas and the first all digital Xerox IGen3 printer to achieve G7 Master qualification.

ORIS Press Matcher Pro uses the color management technology of ORIS Color Tuner, CGS' award-winning contract proofing system, to produce high-resolution files for your CTP system, digital press, wide-format printer or any other device.  The results are standardized color across multiple platforms – bringing high-quality, consistent color to all your print projects, regardless of how or where they are printed.  ORIS Press Matcher Pro is ideal for maintaining color consistency across multiple digital presses, or between your conventional and digital presses.  It can also be used to color manage wide format output, so your customer's signage and point-of-purchase materials remain color-consistent with conventionally printed collateral.  ORIS Press Matcher offers the same superior color accuracy as ORIS Press Matcher Pro, but is specifically designed for directly driving entry-level production color digital presses and copiers.

"Our customer base is very brand focused," said Freddie Baird, Executive Vice President & Chief Operating Officer of QuantumDigital.  "Many are ad agencies that represent some of the most visible global brands.  They demand color quality between a variety of locations, presses and print technology to achieve better brand consistency and control.  ORIS Press Matcher Pro enables us to meet that requirement without sacrificing our equally important production horsepower."

"With ORIS Press Matcher Pro, we were easily able to build an elegant workflow that meets our customers' expectations for color quality and consistency in a true production environment," continued Baird.

"With little intervention from the operator, Press Matcher Pro has enabled us to consistently hit colors over longer periods of production runs," added Aaron Evans, Director of Print & Mail Operations for QuantumDigital.  "The simplicity of the Press Matcher Pro interface has allowed the operators to focus more of their time on maintaining the digital press itself."

Allison Leach, CGS Digital Print Technical Sales Manager, said, "we worked closely with the team at QuantumDigital to understand their customers' requirements for consistent color.  Drawing on our expertise in the digital print market we were able to integrate a solution using ORIS Press Matcher Pro to achieve the results required by their customers."

David Palmieri, CGS Director of Sales, Digital Print, stated, "ORIS Press Matcher Pro makes it possible for QuantumDigital to produce the same results on each of their digital presses while maintaining G7 standards, which has been achieved by very few printers.  We are proud to have QuantumDigital as a valued customer"
