50: How Emulation Proofing for Digital Presses Improves Profitability
2867

Esko’s Mark Samworth, returns to discuss the tremendous value of emulation proofing for digital print and packaging production devices. Mark brilliantly explains why emulation proofing is more profitable than the common practice of proofing on an expensive digital press. He states, “When proofing on-press you create unnecessary inefficiencies and bottlenecks by interrupting a digital production device to make proofs.” With emulation proofing, you allow the print volumes on digital presses to flow and improve proof to press match. 

Mark Samworth is a leading patent holder in a variety of technology including expanded gamut printing. Mark provides insight into the value, history, and future of this technology through his experience and current work in developing standards and specifications through the Idealliance Print Properties & Colorimetric Council.

26: Courage to Step Outside the Echo Chamber
2017

Tim Baechle, CEO of Idealliance, passionately discusses the importance of stepping outside of the echo chamber in order to do what you do amazingly well. One must choose courage over comfort. You have to step outside of the echo chamber and realize that courage is the inner resolution to go forward despite obstacles. Life can be very metaphoric. Choose your “swim lane”, jump off the blocks, and swim, swim, swim, but don’t forget to breathe. The dedication, focus and discipline required to “climb the highest mountains” hinges on unbelievable courage. It hinges on truly understanding yourself wholeheartedly. One cannot understand self, if you are looking for reinforcement of your existing views within an echo chamber, you will only find false validation of why you are not moving forward. Creativity is not a divine act, it is lighting strike! Go your own way.
