FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Blanchard Systems to Resell Alwan Color Expertise

NEW ORLEANS, LA - Blanchard Systems, a systems integration and software company is pleased to announce it is representing the full line of Alwan Color Expertise color management products in North America. Blanchard Systems specializes in providing automated workflow solutions and infrastructure to the printing, publishing, and graphic arts industry in North America.

Alwan Color Expertise was founded in Lyon, France, in 1997 by the current President Elie Khoury and his vision - to demonstrate how important standardizing and controlling color throughout every stage of production is - has resulted in the company becoming a world leader in standardization and color management implementation. Alwan Color Expertise offers a choice of four full-featured software solutions within the Alwan product family. Each delivers specialized capabilities that enable all partners along the graphic production line to guarantee the color accuracy of their work, while ensuring optimum production further down the line.

Charles Blanchard, CEO of Blanchard Systems commenting on the Alwan products said, “We are very pleased to add Alwan to the range of pre-media and print automation tools we currently offer. As the need for multichannel (print, web, mobile) pre-media production continues to grow, Alwan’s CMYK Optimizer ability to standardize and normalize color in the front end of the process is an important part of our automated workflow offerings. On the back end, Alwan’s Print Standardizer® will allow our printing customers to maintain industry standard output conditions on all presses automatically. Print Standardizer® is like having a pair of electronic eyes watching every job that comes off making sure that it falls within the standards.”

Alwan Print Standardizer® (APS) is a unique solution that allows printers to print to standards instantaneously and automatically. APS is an ideal companion to press-side auto-scanning measuring instruments. It calculates and applies automatically necessary TVI corrections for offset and digital presses to match Fogra, GRACol® or any other printing condition for each and every job.

The software allows you to track your printing process behavior and reports possible mechanical problems on the press. APS delivers ISO 12647 print conformance reports that can be used for internal Quality Assurance purposes or sent to clients as proof of conformance.

Dave Hunter of Pilot Marketing, the North American representative for Alwan and leading G7 expert stated, “We are very pleased Blanchard Systems will be representing Alwan. Blanchard has an excellent reputation and strong relationships with all the leading printers and publishers in North America. I have had the pleasure of working with them on a number of G7 projects.“
