Attendees of SGIA ’08, the annual event for the specialty graphic imaging segment of the printing industry, were treated to award-winning print quality on the Truepress Jet2500UV. Screen’s innovative wide-format UV inkjet printer was recognized as Product of the Year at SGIA by the Digital Printing & Imaging Association (DPI).
In the Output Device category, the Truepress Jet2500UV received the Product of the Year award for “Rigid Substrate – UV Ink” output. The inkjet printing system impressed the DPI judges with the kind of print results that consistently impressed booth visitors at this year’s SGIA show.
DPI holds the annual Product of the Year contest in conjunction with SGIA, held this year from October 15-18 at the Georgia World Congress Centre in Atlanta. The competition compares digital imaging products that are increasing the speed and accuracy of specialty imaging in wide-format digital graphics.
Entrants are required to print and submit test images created by DPI. The test forms contain a number of challenging images and patterns designed to put digital printing devices through their paces. A panel of printing experts based its award selections on the color appeal, tonality and detail displayed on the submissions.
“We are very proud that the Truepress Jet2500UV has been honored as one of the digital imaging products that is helping the printing industry and enabling printers to succeed in the marketplace,” said Brian Forsdike, President, Screen Europe. “Screen’s Truepress printing systems represent our deep commitment to the digital imaging community.”
