Commenting on the installation, Sabyasachi Talukdar, editor of Uttarbanga Sambad, said, “The Thermal technology does not require air-conditioning for transportation and storing of plates.

In commercial segment, Kolkata-based York Print has installed it s third Kodak Trendsetter 800 platesetter.

Also, Guwahati-based Janambhumi Press opted for Kodak’s thermal technology with the installation of Kodak Trendsetter 400 and also placed its second order for Kodak Trendsetter News platesetter to cater to their Newspaper division.

Subroto Sharma, managing director of Janambhumi Press, said, “We have chosen Kodak Thermal CTP technology as its speed as well as the size is upgradable, which is a very important factor in today’s changing print scenario.”
