CHICAGO, Sept. 10-New and previously introduced products from Kodak received a combined total of eight Must See 'em and Worth-a-Look citations at Graph Expo 2007. Winners in the program, sponsored by the Graphic Arts Show Company and conducted independently by the PrintCom Consulting Group, were selected from almost 6,600 products and announced during the Executive Outlook Conference on September 8.
Must See 'ems products and services represent the technology that will impact all types of printers. Products that don't have as wide an application or broad impact on the industry yet are important for niche markets or selected groups of printers or converters are recommended to Graph Expo visitors as Worth-a-Look.
The KODAK NEXPRESS S3000 Digital Production Color Press and KODAK Web-to-Print Solutions earned Must See 'ems. Worth-a-Look recognition went to the KODAK INSITE Prepress Portal System 5.0, KODAK INSITE Creative Workflow System 3.0, KODAK PRINERGY Workflow System-Dashboard, the KODAK FLEXCEL NX Digital Flexographic System, and the KODAK TRACELESS System for Anticounterfeiting.
The KODAK VERSAMARK D-Series Printing Systems were designated as Still Worth-a-Look, which goes to past Must See 'ems that remain broadly important but that are now somewhat less compelling than the Encore selections.
"The prestigious Must See 'ems serve as an unbiased guide to products and services that Graph Expo attendees should plan to learn more about," said Jeff Hayzlett, Chief Marketing Officer, Kodak's Graphic Communication Group. "Our eight recognitions in various categories reflect our efforts to develop products that can help our customers win wherever they play across the broad spectrum of the industry."
