I will start by saying too much has happened in the last day and a half to write about in a blog entry, so I will stick to the highlights here.
- Mirage is a much nicer place to host a meeting than TI. The meeting rooms we have are awesome, and the food and food service personal are top notch.
- Jerry Huffman provide an excellent keynote address last night. He shared AbsoluteProof’s overall success with GcX, and specifially success with EMI.
- The Sunday night reception was once again a excellent networking opportunity, and a big hit with all attendees
- Today (Monday) was a long a content filled day, and it has been every year. (It probably would have seemed to be a shorter day if my wife and assistant (Terra) had not “made” me stay out until 1:00am. )
- Michael Woods and I presented a start to finish tutorial on using GcX. Without Son Do’s “questions” it would have been a boring session…
- Jerry Huffman provided a detailed review of how GcX has been a piece of the enabling technology that allow them to sell sub-$5000 remote proofing solutions.
- Howard Nelson (ASH) provided insight into evaluation of the Box Plot utilized in GcX for process control. He also provided a hands on tutorial and some sample excel sheets that allow in depth analysis of data collected by GcX.
- I shared some more in depth perspective on the two Golden Nugget topics the group asked for more information on; density & TVI vs. L*a*b*; and UV vs non-UV filtered instruments. (I learned something here when a potential client shared some data with me….I may be crossing back over to the other camp depending upon follow-up on this information. )
- The best part of any User’s Group is when the User’s share. Jeff Ross from Bemis shared real world experience with GcX. David Piccus also told us what happens in shops he helps who have no process control.
More to come tomorrow.
