Multimedia graphic solutions take centre stage

Eurostand Displays

Eurostand Display says it has opened a world of opportunity with its latest range of audio visual graphics systems.
The Essex-based trade-only supplier has just added an integral large screen option into its best-selling Centro modular display system range. Eurostand says the addition has generated a buzz of interest from customers keen to exploit the enormous opportunities that multimedia brings to a wide range of applications.
With its contemporary design and anodised aluminium construction, Eurostand says Centro was always designed to be elegant, durable and functional. The beauty of the system is that you only have to buy it once, says the firm's National Account Manager Sam Mooney.
Its scaleable and adaptable, with standardized fittings, so you can add to it at any time, or rearrange the elements to suit your need. And now with the large screen display as an integral option, the system has evolved with dynamic content and sound to bring a brand new dimension to any display application.
Whether you want a graceful showroom backdrop or a more refined presence at a trade show, Centro is one of the most professional solutions available  and, even better, it now incorporates audio as well as visual capabilities.
Gaining and holding peoples attention has always been the challenge facing designers of display systems. In terms of noticeability the Centro Theatre system cleverly marries high resolution moving images, interactivity and sound with graphics that surround and reinforce the screen and audio content. The three media working in tandem are an extremely powerful combination in any situation, says Mooney.
At a time when every penny of marketing budgets is having to work harder, the Centro Theatre Systems add a persuasive dimension to static displays that can only enhance the noticeablity and effectiveness of our customers campaigns.
The combination is entirely customisable to suit users' individual requirements and budgets, says Eurostand. Applications that particularly benefit from this combination of static and dynamic media include trade shows, seminars, point-of-sale and showrooms.
The screen and graphic elements can be used as a stand-alone presentation, or be seamlessly integrated into a full-size Centro exhibition stand. Eurostand says that screen sizes between 23 and 42 can be incorporated into the system cleanly, simply and easily.

Colorific blasts open ink options for owners of Mimaki JV3 printers

Colorific Pro-J3 alternative min and match ink for Mimaki JV3

Created for Colorific by one of the world’s biggest ink manufacturers, Pro-J3 ink is the latest ‘best in class’ ink to be added to the Colorific product range.

This new lower-cost ink formula for Mimaki JV3 series printers is available now from rapidly expanding European ink brand, Colorific. Their Pro-J3 inks form part of the supplier’s ‘mix and match’ Pro brand, which denotes absolute matching to the colour and performance standards of original OEM counterparts.

Colm Garvey, European Sales Director for Colorific distributor IGS is upbeat about the benefits “We firmly believe that this is the best alternative ink solution available to the Mimaki JV3 user, Pro-J3 is fully mix and match, to the extent that it can even be used alongside Mimaki original inks. Matched for colour and chemistry, it is fully compatible plug and play solution that requires no flushing or elaborate changeover, you simply plug it in and print”.

Key benefits include:

  • Absolute colour matching, for identical colour output using standard Mimaki profiles.
  • Mix and Match chemistry means that Pro-J3 ink can be used alongside Mimaki originals.
  • Plug and play adoption, simply plug the Pro-J3 cartridges as a replacement for Mimaki cartridges, and print.
  • Extensively field tested for performance and reliability.
  • Optional on-site Mimaki printer warranty provided in the UK by Tech8

All Pro-series inks are plug and play, giving users the option to run them alongside existing inks without the need to flush out the previous set. Current profiles and settings also require no modification, meaning that changeover can be effortless. Compatible with the Mimaki’s JV3 range, Pro-J3 inks are a blend of selected solvents and high-quality pigments, and claims to offer improved performance and reliability.

Prolonged field-testing of the series has revealed other advantages to the full solvent offering, including a claimed reduction in nozzle blockages and an extended life expectancy for the entire ink feed assembly. Users can also expect the benefits of enhanced scratch, abrasion and chemical resistance on their output. Partnering this confidence in the Pro-J3 and its other ranges, UK-based Colorific resellers are also able to offer competitive alternative on-site warranty coverage, provided by service provider Tech8, which aims to improve on currently-available OEM options.

“Before any of our inks are made available to the end-user a number of trials are performed across different machines, media and application types,” explains Colm Garvey “That’s why we are able to ensure full hardware and UV fade resistance warranties. This research and development process also means that we can pitch the optional Tech8 warranty to meet or even exceed OEM offerings in terms of speed of response and parts coverage – adding further essential value to both the reseller channel and the end-user"

The company, which also supplies an ecologically responsible Bio alternative for OEM inks, emphasises the clean jetting properties and lack of reprofiling when switching to Pro-J3. “We try to analyse the journey of the ink across every step, from production through to eventual application – so we know categorically that everything about the Pro-J3 ink, starting from installation and finishing up at outdoor durability, presents a cost-effective and easily implemented solution for users of the Mimaki JV3 series machines. The ability of our Pro-J3 ink to work alongside Mimaki originals means the conversion process is completely hassle-free, it really is a case of plugging in the Colorific cartridges and printing just as before.”

The Colorific ink range is sold in sixteen countries across four continents and is rapidly gaining a reputation for trouble-free reliability.
