?Herzlia, Israel – 12-10-78? is the date marked on the upper corner of right image (above the propeller. Click on the picture to enlarge). These proofs constitute a monumental milestone in the history of the digital color graphic science, a defining moment in which Scitex has just invented a new industry?DIGITAL PRE-PRESS.
These images have been produced in front of a real customer (Herr. Echler of Bauer Co. of Hamburg, Germany) in a live demonstration in Israel. The demo was based on all-digital workflow: Scanning (using an old Hell drum scanner), image handling using computer software (on Scitex?s CIPC connected to an HP 1000 computer with Scitex operating system) and exposing color separation films (on the ELP).
