UAE Printers Capture New Markets Following KODAK NEXPRESS Digital Production Color Press Purchase

<p>Rochester, NY, July 14 -- Diversification is the key to future success and that’s why United Arab Emirate operation Asiatic Printing Press chose to invest in a KODAK NEXPRESS SE3000 Digital Production Color Press.</p> <p>“A lot of our work is book printing, but the print runs are gradually coming down,” explains Vipin Ramachandran, General Manager of Asiatic Printing Press, which installed the KODAK NEXPRESS Press. “We wanted to be able to produce shorter runs more cost effectively. With the digital and litho mix we have, we can be very flexible and that means we can help customers achieve whatever their jobs demand. We made a conscious decision for flexibility and quality. We looked at other solutions in the market, but the KODAK NEXPRESS SE3000 Press offered the most flexibility, which is a key element in our offering. It also very closely matches the color quality achieved on our KBA presses, which was important for product consistency.”</p> <p><strong>Extended possibilities and new markets <br /></strong>Since its installation, Vipin has found the press’s capabilities extend beyond its earlier capacity, providing Asiatic Printing Press with a more profitable way to address current market demands. “With the ability to print up to 350gsm we can produce a wider range of print and are now talking to customers about greetings cards and photobooks, as well as print on demand. Also, being able to produce runs of one or 50 allows our clients to better target their message. For example, we work with a couple of event management companies and they will be able to add value by personalizing their brochures. This kind of direct marketing is going to be a dominant trend and we will be able to make the most of it now that we have the KODAK NEXPRESS SE3000 Press. The ability to offer dimensional printing also enables us to offer customers a wider range of products and allows us to move into new markets such as greetings cards.”</p>

Acierta and PressPrint Revolutionize Local Digital Newspaper Printing in Spain with the KODAK VERSAMARK VL4200 Printing System

<p>Rochester, NY, July 13, 2011&#160; -- Billing, marketing and Transpromo specialist, Acierta Transpromo &amp; Billing Solutions, has joined forces with newspaper printing company PressPrint to create a local integrated digital newspaper printing service in Spain.</p> <p>The service will use Acierta’s infrastructure in Madrid, which includes two KODAK VERSAMARK VL4200 Printing Systems. One of the systems is a recent purchase, while the other is an upgraded KODAK VERSAMARK VL2200 System that was already in use at the company.</p> <p>This integrated offering initiative was driven by a development project involving Acierta, PressPrint, Kodak, ASIP, the Tajamar Institute of Graphics and Technology (ITGT-Tajamar) and the paper producer, Holmen Paper Madrid. The project involved conducting research into developing new inks, paper weights, files and workflows suitable for digital newspaper printing while delivering quality similar to offset printing. After 18 months of research the project finally bore fruit. Today, several international newspapers are interested in using Acierta’s and PressPrint’s services to enter the Spanish market.</p> <p>Juan Manuel Albelda, PressPrint’s Managing Director, explains: “Acierta played a key role in the project, not only because the company already had the KODAK VERSAMARK VL4200 Systems, but also because of its knowledge of database management, which is one of the services we offer newspapers to help them capture subscribers. The integrated offering makes a newspaper’s move into the Spanish market much easier, as we can do much more than just print and distribute newspapers—we can also help them increase circulation and offer other services, such as customization.”</p>
