The cancellation of Drupa 2020 has prompted Global Graphics group companies Global Graphics Software, Meteor Inkjet and Xitron to accelerate the introduction of Direct - a software platform for digital presses - that would otherwise have been launched at the trade show.
“We stand shoulder to shoulder with our industry colleagues, partners and employees during this difficult period and look forward to participating in Drupa in April of next year. In the meantime we are not treading water, ” said Global Graphics’ CEO Mike Rottenborn. “In fact, we are accelerating our plans to launch Direct with a worldwide ‘virtual’ rollout scheduled for 28 April.
“Direct is the first fully integrated product line from Global Graphics, featuring our Harlequin Rip technology, Mako for file optimisation, our award-winning ScreenPro and PrintFlat products for inkjet digital printing, tight integration with printhead drive electronics and software from Meteor Inkjet, workflow for labels and packaging from our partner Hybrid Software, and the global reseller network of our newest subsidiary, Xitron.”
