Idealliance awards G7 System Certification to Agfa Graphics’ Asanti workflow

Agfa Graphics’ Asanti Version 4 production hub and automated workflow software has been awarded G7 System Certification from Idealliance “as it has demonstrated the system’s leading capabilities to implement and maintain G7-based print workflows.” G7 System Certification is the global verification of a system, proving that it’s able to implement G7 and near-neutral-based print production for any print technology. The Asanti system is a core component of Agfa Graphics’ wide-format-based print workflows and gives users the ability to implement and drive G7 throughout their workflows, to meet the demand for G7 across all output technology.

Asanti Version 4 with its use of G7, aligns all devices throughout its workflow through the use of G7 and near-neutral-based print production for consistent output and streamlined process control – regardless of print media, application or print engine. “Agfa has added another G7-based tool to its solutions for the graphic communication, printing and packaging industries.,” said Jordan Gorski, Vice President of Idealliance’s Global Certification Programs. “With the addition of Asanti Version 4 to the list of globally recognized G7 Systems, Agfa Graphics is now able to support the strict quality and performance demands for the wide-format industry.”

The G7 System Certification by Idealliance certifies the capabilities of workflow system meet strict production requirements to align to G7 to serve the global print industry. For this certification and exhaustive independent third-party analysis, the Asanti system proved that it’s an essential solution to drive Print Anywhere through the use of the G7 methodology – with one calibration, one separation, one file and one aim point as the industry-leading set of specifications for achieving near-neutral gray balance across all print technology. The use of G7 for print service providers leads to optimal operational performance for print workflows through process control, cost savings and print quality – to raise the bar for the global graphic communications, print and packaging industries.
