Ultimate TechnoGraphics, leader in imposition and finishing automation, is proud to announce it was the recipient of the PRINT18 Vanguard Breakthrough Award as 5 of 76 RED HOT TECHNOLOGIES for its brand new Ultimate Impostrip® 2019.
Ultimate Impostrip® is already well known in the industry as it was the first computer desktop imposition solution on the market in 1989 and has since been a crucial part of thousands of companies’ print production. “Having established and proven technology does not mean we should stop innovating” says Julie Watson, second generation leadership of Ultimate TechnoGraphics. “In fact, it means we should innovate even more, and this is exactly what we have done with this new generation, and what we will continue on delivering in the future.”
Ultimate Impostrip® 2019 is the result of a sizable effort of research and development directly aligned with the industry trends, challenges and customers feedback. “What’s going to make our customer’s life easier” is the underlying principle guiding this project from start to finish. This new version is also now native on both Mac and Windows, offers enhanced hybrid printing functionality as well as a compelling user experience with a modern and clean user interface.
Ultimate Impostrip® 2019 introduces artificial intelligence for bound and flat work. “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. The AI advances, especially for bound work, is a breakthrough for both commercial and book printing automation. ‘’ writes the Association for Print Technologies (APT).
“We are extremely honored to have been awarded with the Vanguard Breakthrough Award,” continues Watson. “This project has been a great team effort at Ultimate and everyone who has been part of the journey deserves to be recognized. Although it was not possible to have the entire team at the Award ceremony, those who could join accompanied me on stage to receive this award.”
Ultimate Impostrip® 2019 was the buzz of the show at PRINT18 as this new generation of imposition software has been qualified as ‘’impressive innovation’’ and ‘’a wind of renewal’’ by partners and customers attending the big reveal at the Ultimate booth. “Ultimate Impostrip® 2019 is truly a game-changer and we look forward to a successful future” reports Watson.
The new technology advances demonstrate Ultimate’s commitment in meeting customer needs for connectivity, easy integration, faster turnaround times and user-friendly experience.
