Imaging Stability: The Foundation for Great Print Quality
Great print quality depends on many things, including your processes, your employees, your printing press, and your paper and ink. But before a job even gets to the pressroom, print quality starts with imaging stability in prepress. “Imaging stability” is defined as reliable and robust imaging of the plate in the CTP device, using technology that: Tolerates and/or automatically corrects for the normal day-to-day variability in a printing environment, Ensures consistent and robust dot reproduction on the plate that will hold up on press, through the full print run, and Is flexible enough so that it adjusts easily to the production variations and demands of your business. Within this arena firmly sits KODAK SQUARESPOT Imaging Technology, which employs a 10,000-dpi laser swath - four times finer than a pixel. This unique “sub-pixel” resolution ensures the edge of the dot on the plate is accurately and consistently imaged, resulting i
Poland’s Colours Factory Takes a Stand for Literacy
Since the launch of its Print for Good literacy program at drupa in 2016, Kodak has donated tens of thousands of books and school supplies to children in high-needs communities all over the world. This year, Kodak worked closely with its growing network of volunteer printers to create thousands of more pieces to support global literacy efforts.

Those books and school supplies were distributed in different geographies through a variety of on-the-ground partnerships with literacy organizations, schools, and local non-profit groups. “At Kodak we feel that literacy is a vehicle for us to talk about the value of print in a very tangible way while partnering with a vast network of our print partners and customers to address a critical issue that touches every country on every continent,” said Dr Peter Hans Trampler, Northern Eu
KODAK CTP Mobile Control App: User friendly. Business friendly.
In late 2018, Kodak introduced a new innovation for use with our CTP devices: the KODAK CTP Mobile Control App. The app allows users to monitor up to 10 CTP devices on their mobile phone. It has an easy-to-use interface that delivers flexible, proactive control for maximum uptime and productivity. As we enter 2019 and usage of the app is gaining traction, feedback from Kodak customers using it has been glowing. Santiago Villasenor, Prepress Manager at Shweiki Media in San Antonio, Texas, has been thrilled with the app’s impact on his day-to-day operations. “It's really a wonderful tool,” said Villasenor. “It allows me to monitor our operations on the fly. Often, I will be out to dinner with my wife, and I can just quickly glance at the app and see how everything is going during the night shift. It really gives me a sense of control wherever I am. If I see an error arise, I can just hit a button and stop the machine and quickly correct the problem
