Screen Truepress Jet2500UV to Set New Performance Standards at GOA 2009

The Screen (USA) booth at the 34th annual Graphics of the Americas promises three lively days of equipment 
demonstrations, comparison shopping and critical investment decision-making. Screen kicks off the trade show 
season at GOA 2009,  February 26-28 at the Miami Beach Convention Center, and booth #1586 will feature 
exceptional technology to help print professionals improve business growth and bottom lines.

Show attendees will see for themselves why the Truepress Jet2500UV was recognized as New Product of the 
Year by the Digital Printing & Imaging  Association at SGIA '08. This powerful grand-format UV inkjet printer sets 
new performance standards for sign and display production.

With its true hybrid ability, the Truepress Jet2500UV is designed to add value to printing companies' operations. 
State-of-the-art digital imaging technology coupled with both roll-to-roll and flatbed capabilities expand the quality, 
productivity and flexibility of inkjet printing. Users can alternate between flexible and rigid substrates in minutes 
without incurring the cost of a second machine.

The Truepress Jet2500UV can run roll-to-roll media, including paper, vinyl film, banner and many other materials, 
depending on the job requirements. Products that can be created using the roll-to-roll format include posters,
banners, backlit signs, fine art, billboards, decals and  wraps.

Rigid substrates open up new markets for signs, transit advertising, exhibits and displays. The Truepress 
Jet2500UV easily handles high-quality printing on acrylic, glass, tiles, doors, blinds, plastics, plywood, ceramic 
tile and corrugated plastic materials up to 1.96 inches thick.

The Truepress Jet2500UV supports a maximum output resolution of 1,500 dpi. The drop-on-demand eight-level 
grayscale printhead coupled with Screen's exclusive screening technology enable smooth gradations for photo-
quality color printing.

Screen has long been at the forefront of driving the shift from film-based prepress production to thermal-plate 
imaging. At GOA, Screen will showcase the big advantages for small firms that adopt the PlateRite Niagara 
thermal computer-to-plate (CTP) recorder. The PlateRite Niagara eight-up platesetter enables even the smallest 
print shops to offer higher quality and service more sophisticated clients.

The PlateRite Niagara meets the budgets and plate needs of small and medium-size operations utilizing two-page 
to eight-page presses. It precisely images thermal plates from 12 x 14.6 inches to 41.7 x 32.2 images. Its compact 
design and output speed of 11 plates per hour add more facets to the benefits of going direct-to-plate.

Screen's workflow demonstrations will focus on the newest version of Trueflow SE. Trueflow SE v6.0 builds on 
the trusted workflow management system's productivity-driven features to increase functionality in a hybrid offset/
digital printing environment. It incorporates Adobe(R) PDF Print Engine(R) for consistent and predictable output. 
Data and process management in a hybrid workflow are unified under a single system,  immediately before printing 

In addition to standard file checking, OPI support, trapping, imposition and other prepress functions, Trueflow 
SE v6.0 automates CTP and digital print production using JDF-based job tickets. Existing users can transition 
from a PDF and PostScript environment to a JDF workflow and achieve seamless communication with 
management information systems.

Screen is partnering with IBF Corp. (booth #686) to highlight the PlateRite 4300. IBF is the market leader in Brazil 
for offset plates and graphic arts films. IBF also is a major distributor of chemistry, paper and prepress equipment. 
The PlateRite 4300 accommodates two-up, four-up and six-up plate production. It has a peak output speed of 
21 plates per hour.
