The team at Imaginators, a UK specialist in large, wide, and super-wide format digital print solutions, knows that accuracy, speed, and color consistency are all essential for creating the kind of stunning results their clients have come to expect. The company serves market sectors including music, events, experiential, sport, retail, exhibition, and outdoor advertising and says that their highly efficient workflow and the consistency and quality of output rely on using ONYX Thrive, which they’ve scaled up as the business has developed.
Matt Tydeman, managing director at Imaginators said, “ONYX Thrive is a uniquely scalable solution and has grown with our business. It has become the end-to-end workflow solution we have come to rely upon to ensure maximum productivity and accuracy whilst avoiding costly downtime.
“With ONYX supporting our workflow we can ensure image and color accuracy, with superfast image processing and production speeds, and consistent color across multiple industrial output devices.
“We particularly enjoy the functionality of a true end-to-end Adobe PDF workflow from file submission through to color management, printing, and automated cutting, which brings peace of mind to reducing proofing cycles, reprints and providing a ‘right first time’ output.”
Imaginators work closely with brands and their agencies to provide end-to-end solutions, often using giant graphics associated with large, wide, and super-wide format capabilities. During 2018, its projects have included some of the most iconic music festivals in the UK and high-profile sporting events.
“We often work to extremely tight deadlines,” added Tydeman. “Onyx’s QuickSets with unlimited Hot Folders helps to speed up production and minimise errors, with the ability to RIP and print multiple files across multiple devices on the fly and simultaneously. This is a huge advantage, which helps ensure we meet deadlines and maintain our quality and service standards.
“Our production team have grown with ONYX, which is now a familiar and dependable platform. We’re excited to also explore the functions of ONYX Hub as we plan to integrate this into our workflow.”
