Following high demand from the market, Innova are pleased to announce the European launch of Photo Art by Pictorico

For many years, photographers in Europe have striven to keep the magic of darkroom printing alive. Using photographs taken on a digital camera, they found the perfect partner for printing digital inkjet negatives to expose in the darkroom: Pictorico film. To ensure that photographers can always get their hands on their favourite inkjet film, Innova Art has partnered with Pictorico to launch the Innova Photo Art by Pictorico co-branded product range.

“The partnership between Innova and Pictorico is a perfect match,” says Innova Art Sales Manager, James Cannone. “The Pictorico brand is built on a philosophy of creating high quality output media for a broad range of inkjet printers, so that every photographer can produce great quality prints. Something we are also passionate about at Innova. We are excited to be able to build a long term relationship on these shared values, and, we know that photographers throughout Europe will benefit from it.”

Photo Art by Pictorico launches in early 2019 with two products:

Pictorico Pro OHP Transparency Film 174gsm (IPF 120), available in A4 and A3+, 20 sheet packs as well as 17”, 24”, 36”, 42” and 59” wide rolls in 20m lengths. This translucent film is compatible with all inkjet printers. Suitable for printing digital negatives for use with traditional photographic processes, or producing high density negatives for silk screen exposure. Pictorico Pro OHP Transparency Film 174gsm (IPF 120) can also be used to create eye catching backlit displays.

Pictorico Ultra Premium OHP Transparency Film 184gsm (IPF 121), available in A4 and A3+, 20 sheet packs as well as 13”, 17” and 24” wide rolls in 20m lengths. Compatible with all inkjet printers this translucent film has a higher ink load capacity than its sister product. This makes the Pictorico Ultra Premium OHP Transparency Film 184gsm (IPF 121) a great option for producing digital negatives where ultra dense blacks are required.

Photo Art by Pictorico will be available to purchase from European Innova resellers in the first quarter of 2019.

The FineArt industry will see a new paper that elevates FineArt printing to a new level. As the inventor and pioneer of genuine artist papers for inkjet printing, Hahnemühle fulfils the wish of many photographers to include a FineArt paper made of 100% cotton in the Digital FineArt Collection – this time with a metallic effect. The evenly shimmering metallic effect corresponds perfectly to the haptic of a real artists’ paper from the benchmarking Photo Rag®-family and makes Photo Rag® Metallic unique on the market.

The premium inkjet coating ensures bright colours, deep blacks and perfect colour and detail reproduction. The sophisticated silver metallic effect underscores the image and makes motifs with metallic elements, reflections, ice and glass, architecture and landscape shots, as well as black and white photographs with high-contrast tones, shine. Depending on the incidence of light, the metallic effect glimmers stronger and gives the printed motifs a unique liveliness.

Photographer Kitfox Valentín is delighted by the new Photo Rag® Metallic: “In my pictures, I dive deep into the world of finest details to accentuate and illuminate my compositions. With my picture of the series ‘Beatific / Caustic’, I attach great importance to the fact that the print exudes the iridescent mica or the rich shine of the composition. Photo Rag® Metallic radiates the bold, shimmering quality brilliantly. By pairing ‘Beatific / Caustic’ with the new Photo Rag® Metallic Paper, I was able to deliver high-quality FineArt prints to the world without compromising the image.”

The 340 gsm paper is made of 100% cotton and has no optical brighteners. Of course, Photo Rag® Metallic, like all Hahnemühle papers in the Digital FineArt Collection, is free of acid and lignin and meets the highest requirements for aging resistance. With different roll and sheet sizes, photographers can choose from a wide range of options. Users get the best printing results with our Hahnemühle ICC profiles. The ICC profiles are available for download on our website.


About Hahnemühle

Hahnemühle is considered the inventor of Digital FineArt papers for inkjet printing. As a pioneer, the oldest German artist paper manufactory has been refining its real artist papers for photography and art reproductions for more than 15 years.

The papers – manufactured for more than 430 years with characteristic craftsmanship – receive a special coating, without influencing the noble haptics of the papers. This inkjet coating allows prints with pin-sharp details, in both rich colour and deep blacks. All papers have excellent aging resistance. The Hahnemühle Digital FineArt Collection offers more than 20 different papers, while the Hahnemühle Photo Range is comprised of eight papers.

Hahnemühle has a worldwide reputation as a ‘brand of the century’ among artists, photographers, museums, galleries and collectors.

Headquartered in Dassel, Southern Lower Saxony; with offices in the United Kingdom, France, USA and China; the company employs approximately 200 people worldwide.

Even though the phrase "time is money" is almost as old as time itself, it still applies to small and big companies of today.  Summa, value your time and will continue researching every way to improve your workflow. Summa makes your dream come true and enables you to divide your job time almost in half thanks to the release of the G-Performance mode. This mode is specifically designed to enhance the speed/performance of digital finishing operations on the S Class 2 roll cutters up to 40%, which will save you precious time to spend on other things.

Transform your S Class 2 cutter into a lean, mean, even faster-cutting machine than before with the G-Performance, no matter whether it be a cutter with tangential or drag knife technology or our smallest or largest cutter in the product range. However, speed is not the only advantage you will benefit from. Your S Class 2 cutter will be able to read registration marks, to achieve a perfect cut, even with print deformations, at an ever faster pace

No matter how wide the substrate and/or machine, the advantages of the G-Performance will definitely show in production times. The G-Performance mode is available as free unlock on new machines (2018). However, even S Class 2 cutters, built before 2018, can experience the full benefits of the G-Performance mode as well. Especially within large industrial environments, this G-performance mode will prove its worth and give your overall workflow a serious boost.

Make your dream a reality and release the G-Performance mode on your S Class 2 vinyl and contour cutter! Unlock your boost extension at www.summa.eu/g-performance!

Not convinced? Have a look at a side by side comparison of two S Class 2 cutters, one with and one without the G-Performance mode.

Why stop there?

And while we're at it, Summa released even more features (for free!) to enhance the finishing experience with your Summa S Class 2 cutters. Check it out!

Short Load

This new functionality on the S Class 2 cutters ensures less material will be forwarded, so possible material obstructions are avoided. The fixed size of the autoload of the media is 80 cm.  Not only does the short load mode makes sure the material will not touch the floor or be hindered by obstructions, it also guarantees less waste of material, which contributes to the overall user-friendliness, the environment (less waste=less pollution) and your wallet!

Dog Ear Function

Thanks to the updated intelligence on the Summa S2 Series, dog ears (pleated corners) in the substrates will be avoided during loading. Before, the cutting head would immediately start on the right side of the media during loading, which could then lead to these pleated corners.  With the dog ear function, the head will first position itself on top of the media during loading and will position itself on the right side afterwards.  As a result, damaging the product will be avoided and a clean cut can be yours to admire!

OPOS XY2

OPOS has the unique ability to register multiple marks along a job.  With the OPOS XY2 function also the additional XY line at the end of the job will be read now, which will lead to more compensation possibilities in deformation and even more contour cut accuracy than before, especially when cutting large jobs.  No restriction, only unsurpassed accuracy, and impeccable precision!

The new S Class 2 screensaver is more informative, which will enhance user-friendliness to the fullest. Moreover, instead of the Summa logo, tips will be shown to make sure ultimate efficiency will be reached during the job.

Today, Onyx Graphics, Inc., announced global availability of ONYX 18, the newest version release of the company’s award-winning wide- and grand-format software that includes new colour technologies for colour accuracy, consistency, and conformance to standards such as G7 and Fogra that print service providers can prove to their customers.

ONYX 18 – covering the entire product portfolio of ONYX solutions including ONYX Thrive print workflow; and ONYX ProductionHouse, ONYX PosterShop and ONYX RIPCenter RIP software – is now available to all ONYX Advantage customers by requesting a key update and to all other customers for immediate purchase.

“ONYX 18 represents the next generation of wide-format print software capabilities,” said Bryan Manwaring, Director of Product Marketing at Onyx Graphics. “The improvements really raise the bar in giving print service providers the ability to validate colour, match standards and maintain consistency to get the best possible output.”

Previewed at the International Sign Expo in Orlando, March 22-24 and formally announced at FESPA Global Print Expo in Berlin, May 21-23, ONYX 18 software gained immediate recognition upon its launch from the European Digital Press when it was honoured with the 2018 EDP Award for Best Colour Management software.

Key features

The latest release of ONYX 18 gives users a new colour experience, while bringing consistency, reliability, and power to a print environment. Highlights of ONYX 18 include:

  • ONYX Color, the industry-leading colour engine, includes new core enhancements for improved black ink combinations that give increased shadow detail, texture and definition, as well as increased saturation of reds and oranges without compromising ink savings. Textile and soft signage application benefit especially from these enhancements. 
  • ColorCheck, a new process control tool set that enables print service providers to guarantee colour accuracy to their customers as well as ensure consistency of output across devices over time. 
  • ColorCheck also ensures conformance to standards including G7 and Fogra as well as baseline testing for process control and in-product indicators for printer recalibration. 
  • PosterColor 2.0, a technology first introduced to the industry by Onyx Graphics, uses next-generation smart rendering intent to boost saturation of solid colours for added ‘pop’ across all image types. 
  • AccuBoost, new for ONYX 18, is an iterative ICC profiling technique for pinpoint accuracy of ICC profiles. 
  • The latest Adobe PDF Print Engine (APPE 4.8), accelerates processing for patterns and soft masks with super-fast algorithms for rendering complex file types resulting in big performance gains.
