At the recently concluded PrintPack 2017 event, RSG Solutions displayed a range of color management solutions at their stand. Gulshan Pahwa, director at RSG Solutions, shared that his company offers all types of color management solutions right from RGB to CMYK for a range of industry segments. “We have solutions for photographers, designers and the printing presses,” he quipped.

“For designers we have Eizo color monitors; whatever you see on these monitors is exactly what you get through on the printer. What’s interesting about these monitors is that they have a built-in color calibrator. Any monitor from the market that you use needs to be recalibrated and you also need an external colorimeter to calibrate the monitor. But in our monitor the calibrator is in-built and it will do the calibration on its own. You just need to decide when you want to calibrate in the software and it will automatically start calibrating the monitor,” he said. 

Pahwa also commented on the Epson range of proofers, which are used for proofing applications and considered ideal for design jobs that are going into print. “We have proofers for newspaper applications, offset printing applications, and for packaging applications. 

The other products that RSG Solutions displayed included the Techkon range of spectrophotometers and densitometers, as well as scanning spectrophotometers. Pahwa said that with the help of scanning spectrophotometers along with different software, RSG Solutions is educating printers to adhere to quality printing standards. These devices help them achieve ISO or G7 standards. Additionally, RSG also displayed its sample-maker machine, which is aimed at the packaging industry for making samples. 

When asked about the response he received at the exhibition, Pahwa shared, “The response has been superb so far. As far as color management solutions are concerned, nowadays we’re seeing a trend where customers are investing in these kinds of solutions. Earlier they were not as aware about such solutions as they are now. Our efforts to educate the market has borne fruit. We have substantial market feedback and inquiries about color management, which is a good trend.”

In 2024, we are looking at full recovery and growth-led investment in Indian printing

Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and multi-channel IPPGroup. It created the category of privately owned B2B print magazines in the country. And by its diversification in packaging, (Packaging South Asia), food processing and packaging (IndiFoodBev) and health and medical supply chain and packaging (HealthTekPak), and its community activities in training, research, and conferences (Ipp Services, Training and Research) the organization continues to create platforms that demonstrate the need for quality information, data, technology insights and events.

India is a large and tough terrain and while its book publishing and commercial printing industry have recovered and are increasingly embracing digital print, the Indian newspaper industry continues to recover its credibility and circulation. The signage industry is also recovering and new technologies and audiences such as digital 3D additive printing, digital textiles, and industrial printing are coming onto our pages. Diversification is a fact of life for our readers and like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.

India is one of the fastest growing economies in nominal and real terms – in a region poised for the highest change in year to year expenditure in printing equipment and consumables. Our 2024 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock – to emphasize your visibility and relevance to your customers and turn potential markets into conversations.
