Image Test Labs (ITL), a division of Technology Watch, LLC, announces it has launched a completely updated website,

“For the first time, an owner of a press or digital printer can visit a website and easily access a testing system that actually grades a press or printer from a broad product range of printing devices. In addition to the grading of the press, Image Test Labs shows how that particular press performs against the same class of presses in the industry. ITL “Lets you know where you stand” TM. This allows the owner or potential buyer of a press to reap enormous benefits with a very small investment—particularly compared to the overall cost and value of a press,” explains Henry Freedman, one of the company’s principal developers.

Innovative Site Content

Image Test Labs has developed an innovative, patent-pending technology that grades all types of conventional and digital printing presses, wide format printing systems, photographic printing systems and government and scientific print imaging systems. This new technology, ITL Image Grader, underwent 600 hours of field testing before it was released. Print providers, as well as major equipment manufacturers, have successfully tested this technology and are using it to make educated decisions and operating procedures about their equipment.

Testing is a simple process. Users simply load the PDF target provided by ITL, print three sets on the press or imaging device, and mail two sets to ITL. ITL does the rest.

The website offers quick access to a variety of information:


• To assist which test product is best for a visitor, there is an easy-to-understand product family description of each test. There’s a test available for any printer, from digital sheet fed, wide format and inkjet web presses to offset presses—both sheet-fed and web—as well as proofers, and more.
• An online Library explains the technology behind ITL Image Grader, listing all of its innovations and breakthroughs, benefits to the user and the impact to the industry as a whole.
• An FAQ offers answers to the most commonly asked questions ITL receives about the tests.
• If a visitor wishes to learn firsthand of the merits of the ITL Image Grader, a visit to the testimonials page, offering statements from a wide variety of users— from companies including Cohber, Fujifilm, NewPage, Premier Press, Fairfax County Government in-plant, Stephenson Printing, and Copy General—will provide convincing arguments.

ITL is offering prospective users the opportunity to review a sample report. They can see for themselves how thorough and helpful the ITL Image Grader is.

“Our home page features an image of pioneers. We think of ourselves as pioneers, forerunners creating a unique system to help print providers get the most from their presses and improve their print quality,” remarks Freedman. “This theme will play out on our site throughout the year, as we honor other pioneers such as the Wright brothers, Benjamin Franklin, and landing on the moon. We respect the great efforts of these monumental people and events; in our own way we try to embody the same spirit and aspire to have an impact on the success of printers worldwide.”
