Brentwood, Essex – 30 April, 2012

Stroma has been named as best printer of digital newspapers in a glittering awards ceremony, fending off competition from some of the world's other leading newspaper producers. The accolade is for its digital colour printing in London of the Sydney Morning Herald and New York Times.

Stroma, the digital printer provider and founding member of the Océ Digital Newspaper Network, won the Digital Newspaper Printer of the Year in the Newspaper Awards 2012, held at London's Hilton Hotel in Park Lane. Jubilant Steve Brown and brother Rob, directors of London-based Stroma, accepted the award from television presenter Gabby Logan, herself a former newspaper journalist, on Wednesday (25th April).

The New York Times and Sydney Morning Herald are among 45 titles printed daily on an Océ JetStream 1000 web-fed inkjet production printer. Océ is a Canon Group company.

Steve Brown, Managing Director of Stroma, which has pioneered digital newspaper production for the last 11 years, said: "This is a rich reward for what has been an incredible journey in the newspaper market. Océ's unfailing support has been fantastic – we couldn't have done all this without them."

The Sydney Morning Herald and New York Times submission entries beat off other shortlisted titles from across the world. They included editions of De Telegraaf, The Sunday Times, The Times, Moscow News, USA Today and Pro Football Weekly.

 

The judges said: "Clear winners in this category, these newspapers were applauded for being first-class digital products that combined market-leading technology and quality paper stock. Their digital samples were "fantastic" and stood out from the rest. They had punch and a quality that almost matched the offset presses."

Craig Nethercott, Océ UK's Director of Production Printing, said: "Increasing numbers of the world's most influential newspapers are turning to companies such as Stroma to print their newspapers digitally, which includes international or personalised editions.

Ensuring immediate delivery in international markets of newspapers printed digitally in colour with a print quality comparable to traditional printing provides a steady revenue stream and potential growth opportunity for newspaper publishers, which Stroma is exploiting. This is a well-earned reward for what is a great team effort."
