Roland and CGS Publishing Technologies International Announce Strategic Technology Partnership

Roland and CGS Publishing Technologies International have entered into a strategic partnership to bring leading 
edge technologies to the graphics industry.

Focused initially on the packaging market, the partnership has produced a new solution that seamlessly integrates 
CGS’ patented ORIS Color Tuner // Web software with Roland’s DPI award-winning VersaUV LED-UV inkjet 
printer/cutter.  The solution allows businesses to generate highly accurate flexible packaging contract halftone 
proofs on virtually any substrate at a fraction of the cost of current laser systems.

“For nearly three decades, Roland has brought innovative technologies to creative professionals,” said Trevor 
Haworth, CEO of CGS Publishing Technologies. “Our new combined solution has already been widely adopted 
in Japan, delivering new levels of productivity, cost efficiency and quality to businesses there.”   

The 30” VersaUV LEC-330 prints on an unprecedented range of substrates  and features Roland’s renowned 
print/cut technology which enables precision printing and contour cutting of graphics all on one device through 
one seamless workflow.  In addition to CMYK and white inks, VersaUV prints clear coat which can be layered 
to create gloss and matte finishes, unique textures and special effects. Roland ECO-UV inks offer an expansive 
color gamut and remain flexible to support the production of packaging samples. 

CGS ORIS Color Tuner // Web software includes a new driver supporting VersaUV’s entire color gamut. The 
ORIS ScreenDot feature directly processes 1-Bit imagesetter-data, producing perfectly accurate color halftone 
proofs. The original screening information allows users to detect screening-related problems such as moirés 
and artifacts at a very early stage, avoiding costly remakes. The ORIS ScreenDot Plus feature allows users 
to produce halftone proofs, even without final 1-Bit data.

“CGS has set the standard for color management across the graphics industry,” said Rick Scrimger, vice 
president and general manager for Roland DGA.  “We are certain that our efforts will lead to new solutions for 
applications such as large format printing and display graphics.  We are working with CGS on integrating the 
ORIS solution with other Roland inkjets including the VersaCAMM VS-640 64” 8-color printer/cutter featuring 
white and metallic silver inks.  We look forward to the opportunities ahead."
