GHENT, BELGIUM – 29 June 2017 – With a team of highly qualified individuals who master the art of imposition and finishing automation, Ultimate TechnoGraphics develops and distributes cutting edge technology to automate and facilitate imposition and finishing for the graphic arts industry. The company is now, as a vendor member, joining the Ghent Workgroup (GWG), an international organization of graphic arts users, associations & developers building best practices for publishing, print and packaging workflows.

Industry experts, including industry, vendor, association and educational members, are joining the GWG in increasing numbers; creating a unique and collaborative infrastructure for creating and testing international specifications. The results have been so positive that the GWG is on the way to significantly expanding the scope of projects it can undertake on behalf of the worldwide graphic arts community. The recent Ghent PDF Output Suite 5.0, created to help determine whether workflows are behaving as expected, now includes ICC based patches allowed in PDF/X-4 (ISO 15930-7).

According to Julie Watson, CEO of Ultimate TechnoGraphics, “Our goal is to help our customers achieve efficient print production and turn the challenging short runs and quick turnaround times into an opportunity. We have joined Ghent workgroup with automation in mind, especially when it comes to our newest true shape nesting capability. Establishing PDF standards are key to prepress automation.”
