Over 100 latest-generation production systems installed at its Venice headquarters, including many that are custom made. A production line that boasts the best printing solutions available today, from small to super wide format through to Catalyst, an innovative production line for packaging. These are just some of the assets deployed by Pixartprinting, the web-to-print leader with over 600,000 customers across Europe, who, for the first time, will have a stand at FESPA (Berlin, 15-18 May 2018). “The special relationship that we've built over the last 25 years with plant manufacturers gives us a competitive advantage when it comes to technology: we can test new solutions before anyone else and request exclusive features,” explains Alessio Piazzetta, Pixartprinting Chief Manufacturing Officer. “Our presence at FESPA sends a strong message to European printers and printing services providers. We'll finally have a chance to meet them face to face after many years of successful collaboration. This international show will also be an opportunity to introduce ourselves to those who have yet to partner with us and show them the many benefits of our approach.”

Color management experts GMG have further expanded their plugin for Adobe Photoshop in Version 1.3. Now color accurate separations from RGB into Multicolor color spaces are possible with up to seven colors. This is based on GMG OpenColor separation profiles. GMG product manager Peter Schöffler explains: "By using separation with the ChannelExtender, image data can be flexibly adapted to the printing process used." The conversion can be switched on or off at any stage during image processing. This way the final result can be directly simulate at any stage of processing. A further innovation: The ColorBoost function makes images more saturated and vivid.
