At the Consumer Electronics Imaging Fair (CEIF) 2018, held at Bombay Exhibition Centre from 9-12 January, Monotech Systems showcased a wide range of solutions for the photo segment, including the world’s first 3D 360 degree virtual reality camera from Human Eyes of Israel for the Indian market. The VUZE has eight lenses for both 360 and 3D videos and comes with a proprietary software to import, render and edit pictures and videos.

Monotech also displayed printing solutions at the expo such as Canon imagePRO 540S large format color plotter to print large and vivid color photographs, GCC – UV flatbed printer to print on any surface and further give a raised effect. The company also showed Digilaser, a laser cutting and engraving solution. In addition to these, on display were a wide range of lamination films from the brands Derprosa, GMP and ValuePRO (Monotech’s own brand).

Another solution displayed was for digital sleeking and foiling to enhance and add value to the print. Monotech also promoted Scodix Digital Print Enhancement with Foil effects.

Talking about the response received at the show, Surendra Singh, deputy general manager – sales, Digital Print Enhancement, Monotech said, “We have showcased some really innovative solutions for the photo segment. The 360 degree virtual reality camera is something very unique for the Indian market. We have got good response for the solutions we have displayed.”

According to Akash Kumar, senior manager – marketing and communications, displaying all the solutions live has given the visitors a different experience. “The response has been really encouraging.”

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.
