"A bright star in the field of Art and Design Education"

from the
Production Lab


The Savannah College of Art and Design
features several new pieces of equipment for the
Graphic Design Department's Production Lab:

Accuset 1000 Imagesetter
Raster Image Processor 400
17 Processor
AGFAPROOF PRS 2 Proofing System

This color digital prepress equipment, which is all manufactured by Agfa, changes Macintosh files to camera-ready art at 3000 dots per inch.

The Accuset will handle film, both positive and negative, and positive and negative paper. It will also do four-color separations. The proofing system will take four-color separations and proof what the image will look like before it goes to press.

This equipment allows SCAD to do all of its production work in-house.
Graphic design students will be able to learn these digital color prepress techniques, and the Production Lab is also open to clients in the community.

This new equipment joins an already sophisticated assortment of hardware, including:
Canon color printer/copier with Fiery interface,
Leaf scanner
flatbed scanners,
umerous Quadra and Centris 650 computers.

A new lab is on order which will contain a number of additional computers, including the new Quadra 840AV machines and a workgroup server.
