  3. 3. Presenters names in Gill sans semi bold 18pt Date Gill sans regular 18pt Copyright © Global Graphics Software Limited 2017 I never realized how much software could improve our press! You took our press from a piece of metal we could not ship to press that we could! I thought we’d never get the darned press out the door until we started to look at the problem in a different way! We really got stuck on our output quality issues until you came along and showed us how to make our press shine!
  4. 4. Presenters names in Gill sans semi bold 18pt Date Gill sans regular 18pt Software can: Copyright © Global Graphics Software Limited 2017 • Take a press that you can’t ship to one that beats the competition • Facilitate a successful and timely product launch of a press that everyone wants • Resolve critical issues on a press that is already shipping but has late in the game issues found in the field by frustrated customers • Vendors can’t rely on their customers to know what they need
  5. 5. Presenters names in Gill sans semi bold 18pt Date Gill sans regular 18pt Can you hear me at the back? Copyright © Global Graphics Software Limited 2017 • Every bit of your press system is vital • No ink? ….No press! • No paper transport? ….No press! • No software?....No press! • No press?....No revenue!
  6. 6. Presenters names in Gill sans semi bold 18pt Date Gill sans regular 18pt The current knowledge gap Copyright © Global Graphics Software Limited 2017 • If you’re not from a digital printing background but are starting to switch to digital you can be out of your comfort zone • Offset, flexo, gravure and screening vendors adding a digital press may not have any experience in prepress because they don’t need to: • Can you honestly ask the right questions so you can anticipate what will be needed in a few years time, not just today?
  7. 7. Presenters names in Gill sans semi bold 18pt Date Gill sans regular 18pt Consider this….. Copyright © Global Graphics Software Limited 2017 How do you improve quality with high-speed inkjet variables? How do you keep your bill of materials under control? What do you do when your digital output is different to your analogue? How do you get brand colors to match? How?......With Software!
  8. 8. Presenters names in Gill sans semi bold 18pt Date Gill sans regular 18pt Closing the knowledge gap Copyright © Global Graphics Software Limited 2017 Solving some problems with software can be much quicker and more cost-effective than solving them with hardware Software can help you deliver more of what your customers need to be competitive in an ever changing world Software is the sleeping giant that can awaken the full potential of your press

  12. 12. Presenters names in Gill sans semi bold 18pt Date Gill sans regular 18pt Where does the software fit in? Copyright © Global Graphics Software Limited 2017 The Digital Front End (DFE) is the brain of a digital production press. The majority of the processing required to prepare a job for the print engine itself is carried out within it.
  13. 13. Presenters names in Gill sans semi bold 18pt Date Gill sans regular 18pt The secret is to design your software with your press Copyright © Global Graphics Software Limited 2017 • Think about hardware and software in parallel • Every Digital Front End is as unique as your press and should be tuned to it
  14. 14. Challenges we’ve helped customers solve Copyright © Global Graphics Software Limited 2017
  15. 15. Presenters names in Gill sans semi bold 18pt Date Gill sans regular 18pt Inferior quality on “challenging” media Copyright © Global Graphics Software Limited 2017 Problem: Mottling or streaking because of high-speed inkjet drop placement Solution: Compensate for it in the DFE by using software to diagnose and apply the appropriate screening tools to vary the amount of ink delivered from the inkjet heads in any one location
  16. 16. Presenters names in Gill sans semi bold 18pt Date Gill sans regular 18pt Output is too slow Copyright © Global Graphics Software Limited 2017 Problem: keeping up press speed versus cost Solution: Ramp up the RIP software in the DFE so it outpaces the press.
  17. 17. Presenters names in Gill sans semi bold 18pt Date Gill sans regular 18pt Brand colors don’t match Copyright © Global Graphics Software Limited 2017 Problem: How do you match brand colors accurately when you don’t have spot colors? Solutions: Maximise the gamut with the proper profile for the press, inks and media using software Make sure your DFE supports extended gamut ink sets Provide a way of accurately emulating brand colors into your process inks
  18. 18. Presenters names in Gill sans semi bold 18pt Date Gill sans regular 18pt Matching analogue output Copyright © Global Graphics Software Limited 2017 Problem: It’s not all digital Solution: Use software to manage the output on each device (i.e. device link profile, correct screening, managed output, etc.)
