Global Graphics Software is licensing three patents covering inventions by Mitchell J. Bogart, the inventor and managing member of Rampage LLC. The company plans to utilise the methods alongside its own software solutions for inkjet and to pass on the benefits exclusively to its OEM customers.
The three patents are US patent numbers 9,053,410, 9,734,440, and 9,278,566, which cover the Quantone processing methods of screening and compensation for multiple gray-level digital presses and automatic printhead registration.
“We think the inkjet industry will welcome these inventions and that is why we are adding them to our portfolio,” said Gary Fry, CEO of Global Graphics. “They will sit well alongside our own inventions in screening and calibration technology and are an important consideration for anyone looking at high-speed inkjet technology.”
Mitch Bogart, managing member of Rampage LLC, added: “Rampage LLC is proud to be licensing these patents to Global Graphics Software. The Rampage solution provides improved smoothness, higher image quality, and accurate, stable calibration and compensation for any digital press whose specifications include the terms 'variable dot size' or 'two or more bits per pixel.' Our simplified registration method works for any digital press making use of multiple printheads both down and/or across the page. We look ahead to further collaboration with Global Graphics Software to further enable them to provide the highest features, qualities, and speeds to their digital printer and digital press OEM customers.”
