Computer-to-press is a type of printing technique directly from the computer. On the other hand, computer-to-plate is a novel and streamlined process in which a digital image is transmitted to a plate used on press directly from the computer. This computer-to-plate and computer-to-press technology eliminate the requirement for producing the film, stripping, and shooting plates. In the computer-to-plate process, the old computer-to-film printing step and related chemicals along with bio-hazard are eliminated. Computer-to-plate and computer-to-press technology helps in reducing cost, provide better consistency, enhance productivity, quality, and minimize the risk of human error. The plates are developed from a variety of materials ranging from aluminum to polymer. Computer-to-plate and computer-to-press systems produce high-quality offset products uses only water in its development processing with extremely low power consumption along with a minimal carbon dioxide footprints. Computer-to-plate systems are increasingly being combined with all digital prepress and printing processes. As digital printing process become reputable, computer-to-plate and computer-to-press will play a prominent role in the future of printing.
