Xitron Adds Digikett, New Solution, to Drupa Partner List
Number of partner stands using Navigator Workflow now tops 15
"We are very excited and extremely proud to have forged these relationships over the past few years," said Karen Crews, President of Xitron. "Companies like Presstek, Glunz & Jensen, CST, Luscher, and Krause are long-time Xitron partners who've had Navigator RIP products on their stands at past Drupa shows. Others, such as Digikett, New Solution, Colordyne, Neopost, Trojanlabel, and Ohio Gravure, will be first-time Drupa partners for us."
Specializing in prepress RIP and workflow products that began by driving film imagesetters and CTP systems, Xitron products help printers transition to digital and high-speed inkjet output using tools and interfaces that are familiar, easy to use, and economically priced. Xitron's installed base of Navigator RIPs and workflows total over 30,000 worldwide.
"Xitron has done an excellent job of immersing Harlequin RIP technology in each of these market segments," said Gary Fry, CEO of Global Graphics, developer of the core Harlequin RIP technology on which Navigator is built. "They've really established themselves as a "go-to" vendor for print services providers transitioning to digital production using the Harlequin RIP"
Many of the systems at Drupa will be identifiable through "Driven by Xitron" signs on the equipment in various vendors' stands. The full Navigator workflow can also be seen in hall 15, stand C54-4 where Xitron is exhibiting throughout the show.
Xitron develops advanced workflow systems and interfaces to drive the prepress industry's most popular new, and legacy output devices, prolonging our customers' investments. In addition, Xitron's pressroom workflow solutions extend the functionality of press consoles from a number of industry-leading press manufacturers. Xitron's Navigator RIP, Raster Blaster TIFF Catcher, and Sierra Workflow solutions are recognized as prepress standards. Built around the Harlequin RIP core technology from Global Graphics and the Adobe PDF Print Engine from Adobe Systems, Xitron engineers continue to develop solutions for the graphic arts market, driving hundreds of different models of imagesetters, proofers, platesetters, inkjet printers, and digital presses. With shipments of more than 30,000 RIPs, Xitron is the largest independent provider in the market. For more information about Xitron, visit us at www.xitron.com.
