The Agfa Graphics Sign Expo Booth (#1736) will feature a "Quality Viewing Station" so attendees can match inkjet performance to their market needs. The Quality Viewing Station is set up to examine graphic output produced in a variety of standards, from high definition to express modes, on the Titan engine at five set distances. Attendees will see first hand the quality and speed performance that the company's UV inkjet systems can achieve.
The booth will also feature the company's inkjet-created application zone known as "The House of Asanti."

"Agfa Graphics' objective is to showcase our inkjet capabilities while sparking the imagination of attendees," said Deborah Hutcheson, Director of Marketing, Agfa Graphics, North America. "The House of Asanti is a lot artsy and a bit practical but most of all, it inspires new ways for PSPs to broaden their inkjet services."
