TRENDSETTER and LOTEM Spectrum digital halftone proofing options are the perfect fit for commercial printers. By adding a digital halftone proofing option to the popular TRENDSETTER and LOTEM CTP devices, you create a multi-purpose platesetter with the flexibility and capacity to meet all your production needs.

Adding proofing materials to the list of media imaged by KODAK CTP devices means that wet and dry plates, processless film, digital bluelines, and contract color proofs can all be imaged on the same machine. The high-throughput, semi-automatic TRENDSETTER QUANTUM digital halftone proofing option means enhanced performance of one of the most popular CTP systems in the world. Advanced automation combined with excellent imaging technology and a range of options make the LOTEM 800 QUANTUM the ultimate platesetter. With Spectrum proofing, the combination is unbeatable.
