“I’m proud that we won the product of the year again making it eight years in a row,” said Brian Phipps, president of Mutoh America. “It proves once again that Mutoh’s proprietary Smart Printing Technology in our ValueJet wide format printers are second to none making them best in class.”

Output devices are judged based on reports generated by the Sonoco Institute at Clemson University. “This is the only competition I know of that reports on the percentage of Adobe RGB a printer can hit,” said Ray Weiss, director of Digital Print Programs, SGIA. “We displayed the reports alongside the entries in the Awards Gallery at PRINTING United.”
