Scodix’ new workflow solution can process jobs up to 60 percent faster for Ultra Digital Enhancement Press users.

Scodix the world’s leading provider of digital enhancement solutions for the graphic arts industry, has announced today the launch of a new productivity workflow package, Scodix Studio Station. Developed to boost press utilisation and production flexibility, Scodix’ new workflow solution can process jobs up to 60 percent faster for Ultra Digital Enhancement Press users. “This new solution allows printers to prepare more jobs, faster, handle large volume variable-data jobs and process jobs from various sources more efficiently,” says Amit Shvartz, Scodix chief marketing officer. “As every digital printer knows, uptime is imperative to profitability, and Scodix Studio Station will help printers maximize the efficiency and productivity of their digital enhancement operations.”

Scodix Studio Station is an enhancement digital front end (EDFE) with Scodix software running on dedicated Scodix hardware. The system has an external RIP server, making RIPs faster and automatic, with an easy-to-use interface, and incorporates two new registration methods.

“Scodix has always provided best-in-class registration. Until now that has been achieved by detecting four OPA dots. With Scodix ARP™ (Automatic Registration Process), Scodix Studio Station can achieve registration down to 100µm, using corner detection or CMYK objects detection. For trade printers and PSPs receiving jobs from lots of different sources, this will simplify the process and allow them to access the full power of Scodix Digital Enhancement,” says Shvartz.

Scodix Studio Station was developed for the Scodix Ultra family of Digital Enhancement Presses and joins Scodix Studio W2P and Scodix Studio W2P Customized in the company’s workflow solutions portfolio.

“Scodix digital enhancement provides a perfect solution for businesses looking to distinguish themselves from the competition. With over 350 installations in more than 65 countries, Scodix is constantly developing new ways to add value for its diverse customer-base,” asserts Shvartz. “As with all our products, we look to provide maximum value, productivity and ROI – the new Scodix Studio Station does just that.”

2023 promises an interesting ride for print in India

Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and multi-channel IPPGroup. While the print and packaging industries have been resilient in the past 33 months since the pandemic lockdown of 25 March 2020, the commercial printing and newspaper industries have yet to recover their pre-Covid trajectory.

The fragmented commercial printing industry faces substantial challenges as does the newspaper industry. While digital short-run printing and the signage industry seem to be recovering a bit faster, ultimately their growth will also be moderated by the progress of the overall economy. On the other hand book printing exports are doing well but they too face several supply-chain and logistics challenges.

The price of publication papers including newsprint has been high in the past year while availability is diminished by several mills shutting down their publication paper and newsprint machines in the past four years. Indian paper mills are also exporting many types of paper and have raised prices for Indian printers. To some extent, this has helped in the recovery of the digital printing industry with its on-demand short-run and low-wastage paradigm.

Ultimately digital print and other digital channels 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. For instance, there is no alternative to a rise in textbook consumption but this segment will only reach normality in the next financial year beginning on 1 April 2023.

Thus while the new normal is a moving target and many commercial printers look to diversification, we believe that our target audiences may shift and change. Like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.

Our 2023 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock and reconnect with your potential markets and customers. Print is the glue for the growth of liberal education, new industry, and an emerging economy. We seek your participation in what promises to be an interesting ride.
