Contex, GlobalVision to Demonstrate Latest Proofing System for the Print Industry at Graph Expo

Accuracy of Contex Wide Format Scanner, GlobalVision Proofreading Technologies Essential for Packaging Quality Control

Rockville, MD ­­– September 26, 2014 –­­ Contex, the world’s leader of wide format scanning and imaging solutions, today announces its collaboration with GlobalVision, the world leading developer of proofreading technologies at Graph Expo in Chicago, September 28-October 1, 2014, Booth #343.

At the Expo, GlobalVision will demonstrate its latest proofreading and quality control solutions for the print industry including the ScanTVS print inspection solution with the Contex HD Ultra i3650s scanner. This combined solution is used by major printing companies and brand owners worldwide to inspect labels, cartons, inserts and press sheets, ensuring accurate representation of the printed information. The solution reduces the chance of costly errors by enabling users to check hard copy proofs for print defects, missing or broken elements, and color differences.

“Graph Expo attendees can see firsthand how the Contex/GlobalVision solution picks up deviations between PDFs and final print runs, which can be costly for the printer and its customers if left undetected,” comments Steve Blanken, General Manager, Contex Americas. “It’s a powerful tool to help all manufacturers reduce time to market.”

“Since the largest source of product recalls is due to copy-related errors in printed materials, printers rely on our proofreading tools to avoid these kind of mistakes. We look forward to demonstrating our solutions at Graph Expo,” comments Reuben Malz, President, GlobalVision.”

Quality Control in the Printer Marketplace

GlobalVision solutions with Contex wide format scanners solve the problems that stem from the multilayer production process and the risks associated with multiple hands having input into the development of product materials. ScanTVS provides quality control to ensure that content is kept accurate with all parties involved.

GlobalVision chooses to bundle the HD Ultra with ScanTVS because of its best-in-class image quality and efficient scanning. The HD Ultra delivers 12-inch per second scanning speed (monochrome) and an unprecedented 901 monochrome and 597 color scans per hour. The scanner achieves unsurpassed image quality with precision camera technology, intelligent calibration, and the innovative AccuColor enhancement algorithm.
