ColorGate wins Best RIP Solution for Wide Format Print

ColorGate, one of Canons prefered RIP partners and distributed in the UK by Velmex Distribution, the Canon Distributor, has won the coverted EDP “Best” award for their Production Server Digital printing product.


Every year, the publishers of the leading European Digital Graphic Press magazines get together with an independent jury to choose the winners of the European Digital Graphic Press Awards for the best products in the digital graphic press industry. This year, PRODUCTIONSERVER5, the ColorGATE digital printing solution, was selected by the European Digital Press Association (EDP) as the best software for “RIP solutions for wide format”. After receiving this outstanding honor, the ColorGATE flagship is now immediately authorized to bear the coveted EPD Award logo as the “BEST RIP SOLUTION FOR WIDE FORMAT OF THE YEAR 2009”.

The EDP Awards honor the best and most innovative digital press products of the past twelve months that outdo the competition in terms of innovation, quality, value for money and user friendliness. The publishers of the leading European magazines in the field of digital press belong to the international EDP Association. The EDP press office produces publications in more than 15 countries and in seven different languages and reaches an audience of more than 240,000 trade professionals. The jury of the EDP Awards is made up of independent digital press advisors, editors and trade professionals from all over Europe.

Flexibility, reliability and speed in production still stand for perfection in digital printing and press services today. According to these standards, ColorGATE technology now offers the universal PRODUCTIONSERVER, already in its fifth generation, providing cross-system RIP software for every type of digital printing application (LFP – Large Format Printing, screen printing film creation, proofing, photo & fine art, professional processing, including cutting). Improved in terms of productivity and quality, the PRODUCTIONSERVER5 is now available on the retail market with new optional modules:

  • COST CALCULATION Module (CCM) to calculate printing costs with subsequent report for reliable printing cost management.
  • COLOR SERVER Module (CSM) for quick color transformation.

“We are very happy that our continuing success in developing and servicing the most customer-oriented production software has been rewarded once again, this time with this coveted international award,” commented Catherine Kirschner, ColorGATE MarCom Manager.
