Kodak has pulled a "hat trick" of honors, winning the German printing
industry's prestigious Innovation Award for the third year in a row.
Previously, the KODAK NEXPRESS Dimensional Printing System took the
award in 2009, while last year the KODAK TRILLIAN SP Thermal Plate in
the Prepress category and the KODAK
PROSPER 5000XL Press in the Printing category took Innovation Awards.
Now, in 2011, the KODAK
NEXPRESS SX Digital Production Color Platform, with the long sheet
option, has been honored with the ‘Most Innovative Technology' (Gold
Award) in the Printing category.
The latest award winner was chosen in an internet poll by readers of
Deutscher Drucker and Grafische Palette, two leading German trade
journals, and print.de, from a total of 30 technologies nominated by the

developing solutions that help print services providers overcome the
challenges they face in the graphic communications industry."

substrate flexibility, and numerous in-line coating and printing
