MARIETTA, Ga. — February 11, 2016 — Graphic Systems North America (GSNA), the Authorized Distributor for RMGT (RYOBI MHI Graphic Technology) sheetfed offset presses in North America, announced the introduction of a four-part webinar series that focuses on the challenges of color management in today’s hybrid print operations.

“We are thrilled to have David Hunter kick off our Color Management Webinar Series,” stated Kian Hemmen, Sales Manager of Print & Finishing Solutions, the Western Distributor for RMGT. “Today’s hybrid print operations have the ever increasing challenge of printing accurate and consistent color in their offset, digital and wide format production. Dave is uniquely qualified to address these color challenges as one of the original GRACoL G7 Experts and is one of five G7 Master Trainers in the world.”
Hunter added, “Part of the challenge in the print industry has been the lack of standards and the lack of defining the precision and accuracy of their devices.” He continued, “The E-Factor defines the precision and accuracy for a given process and quantifies it as a number that relates to Delta E. To put it in perspective, IDEAlliance Certified Proofers have an E-Factor of 2. The IDEAlliance G7 ColorSpace qualified printers have an E-Factor of 3. Every output process can be quantified with an E-Factor. The same device with a different operator may have a different E-Factor. The same device with a different paper may have a different E-Factor. It is important to qualify the expected result, and the webinar will explain how to do that.”
Drupa 2016 theme: “Irodori – Coloring the World Together”
At Drupa 2016, RMGT will introduce a lineup of printing equipment featuring a new uniform design inspired by the exhibit theme of “Irodori — Coloring the World Together.” “Irodori is a Japanese word that roughly translates in English as ‘coloring and brilliance’,” continued Hemmen. “Broadly speaking, however, irodori represents a passion or zeal for life. Color is critical to printed communications. Color accuracy and consistency is vital for our customers who manage brand owner demands across their different manufacturing processes, such as offset, digital and wide format printing. The Color Management Webinar Series for 2016 is an extension of the important role RMGT plays in the color eco-system of printers around the world.”
