Dscoop will host more than 90 Partners at Dscoop7, its seventh annual conference, taking place March 22-24, 2012 in Washington, D.C. With drupa taking place six weeks after Dscoop7, HP Graphic Arts customers will be able to preview many new product releases before the rest of the industry.
“Dscoop7 will provide our members with a look at all the new products and technologies from HP and our Partners before our industry attends drupa,” says Craig Curran, Dscoop7 chairman and vice president of sales for Nosco. “We could not do this without our partners. We thank them for their ongoing support both in the Solutions Showcase exhibit hall and in the year-round Dscoop Partner Program, which benefits all Dscoop members.”
More announcements will be made at Dscoop7, but a sampling of the new products from Dscoop Diamond and Platinum Partners include:
AB Graphic International Inc. will showcase its Sabre Extreme, described as "the future in laser diecutting and the perfect solution for digitally printed web." All jobs can be prepared off-line, in an office environment, and either downloaded through an Ethernet cable or via a removable storage device, making your job easier. Sabre Extreme comes with the Digital Die Shop software enabling you to import, create or edit die patterns, giving you the ability to test each job on a virtual machine, including an estimated maximum run speed, before going live. The Sabre Extreme operating system uses Windows-based software. As the current job is running, new files can be loaded and then changed over on the fly and stored on the system for future use.
GPA, Specialty Substrate Solutions is featuring its New Ultra Digital substrates, specialty papers for high-end invitations and fine art reproductions; bold papers for seasonal promotions that highlight white ink technology; a new paper designed to create metallic effects on an HP Indigo for striking promotions, packaging and greeting cards; and innovative photo book papers for seamless, high-impact images.
Mohawk Fine Papers Inc. is launching new substrates for digital presses and new resources for digital printers. Mohawk's digital portfolio now includes specialty substrates for digital: pressure sensitive, embedded, synthetic, magnet and photo papers. Mohawk MakeReady provides practical tools and actionable information to help digital printers gain new business—including marketing, production, sales and operations insights.
In addition, Executive Sponsor HP will showcase their new products at Dscoop7 before they are featured in the Graphic Arts Experience Center in Atlanta.
HP Graphic Arts customers can see these products and more at Dscoop7. To facilitate attendees’ navigation of the show floor, the exhibit hall will be segmented by products related to general commercial print, label and packaging, grand format and high-volume segments.
