KodakUS newspaper uses Kodak thermal CTP solutions : Four North American newspaper printers are going digital with Kodak thermal CTP (computer-to-plate) solutions. The Denver Newspaper Agency purchased five Kodak Trendsetter News 200 platesetters and Kodak Thermalnews digital plates. Newspapers in Abilene, Tex., Anderson, S.C., and DeKalb, Ill. also purchased Kodak digital solutions to accelerate their printing operations. CTP technologies enable printers to write the image of a page from a digital file directly to the printing plate. This method eliminates traditional steps of generating a film image to make a plate. Plates are then affixed to a press to output the printed pages in a newspaper.

The Abilene Reporter-News, purchased a Kodak Trendsetter News 50, its second Kodak thermal CTP platesetter and Thermalnews digital plates to produce 35,000 daily and 45,000 Sunday copies. "We recently ranked the highest in print quality by E.W. Scripps of all of the company's newspapers. Kodak thermal CTP platesetters and Kodak digital plates are the reason why. It just would not have happened with our previous system," said Mike Hall, Director of Operations at the Reporter-News.

"We looked closely at several brands before deciding to go with Kodak because we felt the Kodak digital solutions best fit our needs," said Sharon Rochester, Vice President of Finance at Independent Publishing. "We are confident in the quality of Kodak's service because they are our current vendor for plates and film."
