-- Dycyfer - first-ever web (roll) digital lens product made capable of 4-color process 3D effects and animation
ENGLEWOOD, Colorado, June 18, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Lumenco™ today announced that it signed its first license and distribution agreement for its revolutionary and proprietary Dycyfer™ digital print product with Pablo Villar e Mariano Pastore S.H. (Pasvil) for Argentina and Brazil. Pasvil is also the lenticular division for Color Graf, a major printing concern in the region.
"The response to our new Dycyfer digital print product has surpassed our expectations, and we are thrilled to bring it to Argentina and Brazil via our first license and distribution partner Pasvil," said Steven Porter, Lumenco's Chief Executive Officer. "With the first agreement in place, we expect to sign up additional licensees and distributors around the globe in short order."
Dycyfer, developed and sold exclusively by Lumenco, is a first-ever web (roll) lens product made capable of 4-color process 3D and animation, with instant make-ready down to thicknesses of about 125 microns.
"Dycyfer introduces revolutionary and patented technology that uses a unique algorithm and file process to enable various digital presses, including Indigo, Kodak, Xeikon, HP and others, to print exciting 3D effects and animation on roll-label stock from 255-microns to 125 microns in 4-color process," said Mark Raymond, Founder and Chief Technology Officer. "This feat has never been accomplished reliably in any other print technology in a viable production method, including offset web, gravure, and flexography. Digital roll labels and packaging products with the capability of 3D and animation in 4-color process have been a dream of innovators in packaging and brand authentication for decades."
Dycyfer Digital Optics will be available initially in two different configurations, depending upon customers' needs. The 125-micron Dycyfer Digital provides great visual effects in 3D and animation, yet is thin enough for labels and wrapping. Unlike traditional lenticular optics, the patented lens array and process allows 3D in either direction across the web with the same material (or even on the same label). This eliminates the need to turn the label to provide 3D to the viewer in automatic roll label applicators. A thicker, 255-micron product will also be available in rolls capable of extreme 3D and animation, holding over 17 image frames.
"The print market has been eagerly awaiting an electrifying product like Dycyfer. Dycyfer overcomes the present limitations in printing stunning 3D effects and animations on roll-label stock with traditional presses at a reasonable cost," said Pablo Villar, CEO of Pasvil. "Lumenco has reinvented digital printing with the ground-breaking Dycyfer product, and is defining the future of cutting-edge marketing solutions. This will open an entirely new market and give printers worldwide a powerful tool to address today's customers' needs for brand differentiation and authentication. We are excited to team up with Lumenco and act as the first licensee and distributor of the Dycyfer product line for Argentina and Brazil."
