Kodak’s portfolio of breakthrough offset, digital and software solutions will be on display to the global print community at virtual.drupa 2021 from April 20 to 23. Featured Kodak products will include:

  • The Kodak Prosper Ultra 520 digital press, which redefines inkjet production printing, and which Kodak claims closes the gap with offset. Utilizing Kodak Ultrastream inkjet technology this web press prints near-offset quality images two to three times faster than competitors across a broad range of commercial print substrates using cost-effective water-based Kodak inks.
  • The Uteco Sapphire EVO W Press, powered by Kodak Ultrastream inkjet technology, is claimed to be the first digital press for flexible packaging to match the productivity of flexo and the quality of gravure. Kodak will also highlight the Sapphire EVO M Press, powered by Kodak Stream Technology, which has been successfully established in the growing packaging market.
  • Also to be virtually shown, is the versatile and productive Nexfinity digital press. The digital press offers unprecedented sheet-fed flexibility regarding substrates, sheet sizes and thicknesses along with a fifth imaging unit that uses a wide selection of special inks.
  • Kodak will be showing its Prinergy On Demand Business Solutions the printing industry’s first and only fully integrated and managed business software portfolio including MIS/ERP, eCommerce, and collaboration applications. This scalable, automated end-to-end solution is said to provide customers a single platform to work from and one vendor to work with, eliminating hidden costs and finger pointing.
  • The Sonora Xtra, Kodak’s next-generation process free plate delivers faster imaging speeds, stronger image contrast and improved handling robustness, plus sustainability and waste savings in prepress and on press.
  • The Kodak Magnus Q800 platesetter is said to be the world’s fastest 8-page CtP device, capable of imaging up to 80 offset plates an hour.
  • The Kodak Magnus Q4800 platesetter, is a new solution for extra-large format (XLF) plate imaging, offering the fastest throughput for XLF size plates, meant for 96-page presses.

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.
