Roland DG has continued its commitment to training services and the support of trainees in the sign industry. Roland DG has again stepped up to the mark for the prominent Sign Industry Training Department at Victoria University in Melbourne.
Roland DG has donated $27,795 of SAI (Scanvec Amiable International) FlexiSIGN 8 software, along with Roland DG's own training services to complement the university's existing commitment.
The school is currently running two Roland DG large format printers, three Roland DG Pro Series vinyl cutters and a suite of FlexiSIGN software to drive them.
With the recent release of SAI's FlexiSIGN 8 Signage software, Roland DG has organised upgrades to all of the school's existing licences and an additional four new packages to enable all fifteen of the student's computers to be used as fully functional sign workstations, with the help and support of SAI.
The university now boasts several levels of the FlexiSIGN software for the students to train on. This includes FlexiSIGN v8, which is suitable for design and vinyl cutting applications, FlexiDESIGN v8 that is a fully featured design tool for both vinyl cut and digital print application through to the top of the line FlexiSIGN Professional v8.
FlexiSIGN Professional V8 is a powerful network enabled sign production system that can drive all of the schools cutters and printers, and is optimised to work with Roland DG's range of combination Print & Cut ECO-SOL MaxTM digital signage printers. FlexiSIGN v8 can even drive these unique printers as a stand alone, wide format cutter.
The second part of the donation consists of training from Roland DG's commercial training program. The training will allow the students and staff to obtain several days of training optimised on the FlexiSIGN v8 software, to get the most from both their new software upgrades and Roland DG cutter and printer products in a real live work environment and applications.
The Roland DG training course for the students will cover a multitude of subjects from colour management, special effects, software production techniques, engraving and print/cut effects, as well as information on media and machine calibrations for signage applications.
