Montreal, Canada, September 30th, 2019 – Ultimate TechnoGraphics, leader in imposition and finishing automation, sets another milestone at Print19, by making Ultimate Impostrip 2019 available. The new product generation of the Montreal-based company has already made an impression in the printing industry, being qualified as an ‘’impressive innovation’’ and ‘’a wind of renewal’’. Native on Mac and Windows, this solution offers new possibilities with its unique features. The Ultimate team will be showcasing the new Ultimate Impostrip® 2019 Pro, Pro Offset and Automation at booth #627, PRINT19, Chicago, IL, starting October 3rd, 2019.
30 years of Ultimate Impostrip®
Combined to this is another major milestone, as Ultimate TechnoGraphics also celebrates its 30 years of innovation at Print19. Ultimate Impostrip® was the first computer desktop imposition solution in the market in 1989 and today is a central part of print production workflows for thousands of companies in print production. ‘’In the early days our solution would replace light tables and imposition became a computerised activity’’, says Julie Watson, CEO of Ultimate TechnoGraphics. ‘’Today we are a long way from this, our technology has evolved to become a main asset in automation, offering a true rules-based lights out imposition workflow that can easily be integrated into an existing or a new print workflow.”
Ultimate Impostrip® 2019 enables PSPs to get more orders out of the doors everyday, reduces paper and plate waste and ink consumption, maximizes sheet or roll coverage and eliminates the need for re-runs by generating the right imposition, with the right marks every time.
An Open Solution
Today’s Print Service Providers need an open, flexible and versatile solution to centralise their imposition needs, no matter if they use digital, offset, or hybrid workflows. One of the main objectives of Ultimate Impostrip® 2019 is to offer an open automated solution for Print Service Providers to build production productivity, while offering a renewed user experience, built on modern technology.
“Ultimate Impostrip® 2019 is the result of a sizable effort of research and development directly aligned with the industry trends, challenges and customers feedback’’, adds Julie Watson. ‘’Our goal was also to regroup the distinctives versions Mac and Windows of the previous versions and create one that would be completely unified with both sets of features available, combining the possibility for a more powerful hybrid automation solution. Ultimate Impostrip® 64-bit support is an outstanding feature which fulfills the requirements of the upcoming Mac OS 10.15 (Catalina)”
AI driven Imposition solution
Ultimate Impostrip® 2019 introduces Artificial Intelligence for bound and flat work with the new Intelligent Imposition Agent. The Dynamic Data Feed (DDF) enables the intelligent imposition agent to choose best-fit layout based on existing templates, a specific subset of templates or it can create completely dynamic, optimal layout without the use of templates.
New Speed Records
Ultimate Impostrip® 2019 was designed to boost the print powerhouses of the future. Although already regarded as a powerful solution for imposition processing, Ultimate TechnoGraphics increased the indexing and imposition power in order to provide greater speed performance.
Redesigned User Interface
Dramatically simplified navigation, intuitive user experience, new modernised look and feel; Ultimate Impostrip® 2019 democratizes the imposition process by guiding the user through the steps to generate their PDF print-ready files, for simple or advanced work.
Connectivity to upstream and downstream systems
Ultimate Impostrip® 2019, like the previous version, can be easily integrated into any prepress workflow or to a store-front or web-to-print solution without extensive programming required.
