technologies for the desktop to the print shop, and EFI™ , a world leader in customer-focused digital printing innovation, today
announced the newest version of Fiery® Color Profiler Suite (CPS) color
management tools has been integrated into Konica Minolta’s award-winning color
product lineup – bringing customers a smoother workflow and greater color
accuracy. On display at “The Power of Performance” – Konica Minolta’s 2010 Business Conference
