Onyx Graphics recently announced that its industry-leading RIP software has been named the 2020 Best Colour Management Solution at the annual EDP awards, marking the second award from EDP for best colour management since 2018.

“Onyx Graphics has always had colour at its core,” said Matt Crawford, director of Product Marketing at Onyx Graphics. “To be recognized again by the experts that make up the EDP panel reaffirms our commitment to providing industry-leading colour output that PSPs around the globe can truly rely on.”

The EDP Association (European Digital Press Association) was founded in 2007 by six magazines with a special focus on digital technologies. Today the EDP has 20 member magazines from all over Europe, covering 25 countries and reaching more than half a million readers (printed editions only). One of the declared goals of the EDP Association is to help users find the right solutions for their applications. Meanwhile, the EDP Awards are highly regarded in the market and are a strong reference point. Each year, experts from the EDP circle evaluate the latest technologies and product developments in categories such as hardware and software, large/wide format printing, commercial printing, industrial solutions, finishing, and consumables. The best products in each category are honored with an EDP Award. Since 2007, the EDP has handed over around 360 awards for the best technology and product developments – now 29 awards are being added this year.
