Hear what our clients have to say about working with us
  • “Working with Ryerson’s Print Media Research Centre helped Lunanos access both the equipment and expertise that we needed in designing a manufacturing process for our product. The unique opportunity to work with Ryerson faculty, students and staff on our project was a great benefit to our company and we continue to maintain a relationship with the researchers.”

    Scott McAuley - Lunanos Inc.
  • “In 2015 we had the opportunity to do a joint research project with the Print Media Research Centre (PMRC) at Ryerson University. After having secured all possible legal and IP-issues, Jason Lisi, Professor at Ryerson University, and his team, field-tested and evaluated a software module for lean-profiling flexo- and offset- presses. We benefitted from the knowledge and expertise at the PMRC and also benefitted from having our software evaluated by and independent institute that is an authority in the Graphic business. This was a great experience.”

  • “In the Fall of 2016, ColorXTC undertook a research project in collaboration with the Print Media Research Centre. The facilities at Ryerson University and the expertise of the PMRC staff were integral to the successful completion of the project. We used Ryerson’s Heidelberg press in a controlled lab environment to validate the advanced prediction algorithms of our CMYK and Expanded Gamut press profiling technology. The success we achieved in our research and the relationships we developed during the project have paved the way for future collaboration between ColorXTC and the PMRC. Innovating in the print industry is no small task, but with the assistance of the PMRC, innovation is becoming a practical reality.”
