Thank you for visiting us at FESPA, Berlin

This year was in fact the 3rd year that AVA has been an exhibitor of FESPA. The well established digital print show took place in a very busy Berlin, with an extended list of over 700 exhibitors spanning across 10 halls … it’s no surprise that FESPA is now known as the show to go to for all things digital print!

An analysis from last year’s show which took place in Hamburg, revealed that 72% of respondents reported an increasing demand for fast turnaround and 74% of the respondents also identified that wallpaper and interior decor was an area of growth for their business. Both of these market findings are of course ideally suited to AVA’s specialised software, making FESPA the ideal show for us to continue to exhibit at, with plans already in place to attend again next year!



Earlier this year we visited the ever-growing HP Graphics Experience Centre in Sant Cuagt, Barcelona, which currently spans across an impressive 6000 square meters, and has plans to grow further! It was here where we saw the final preparations of the Latex 3800 Jumbo Roll Solution being put into place, ready for its unveiling in Berlin!

Of all the RIP and colour management vendors on the market, HP chose AVA to partner them to promote this latest machine. The L3800 is their most industrial Latex solution so far, targeting digital decor businesses with it’s large jumbo rolls (up to 1.2m diameter) and the ability to hold rolls up to 1.2 tons, this solution enables unattended, long run printing on a range of media that’s suitable for markets such as wallpaper, vinyl flooring and window blind manufacturers.

Click below for the full interview with HP’s Thomas Valjak and Emily Falconer from Premier Textiles, as they discuss their latest Latex developments and how AVA integrates with these.

New version of AVA ColourSys!

A recent Apple system update (MacOS 10.13.4) has just started warning that “ColourSys is not optimised for your Mac”. The good news is that AVA’s ColourSys application has been completely re written and will be ship to you as part of AVA 5.1. We are very excited about ColourSys 2 as in addition to it being a 64 bit application, it contains many new features such as Retina display support, and new ‘Popover’ user interface.


The current version of ColourSys doesn’t cause any performance issues so simply click the OK button and you won’t be bothered by the warning again.

If you have any further questions about this, please don’t hesitate to contact a member of our support team.


Thank you for visiting us at Heimtextil 2018!

As in recent years, AVA had two stands  at Heimtextil, Frankfurt. This annual exhibition is the biggest international trade fair for home and contract textiles and wall coverings so it’s no surprise that both our stands were extremely busy with visitors. It was great for the team to see some familiar faces at the show and to also meet many new people. We would like to take this opportunity to thank all those who spent time with us.


This year we were once again located in hall 4.2 (Design hall) and Hall 6.0 (Digital Print hall). We hope you enjoyed seeing the software demonstrations and our unveiling of AVA 5!!


If you would like to know more about AVA and our latest release of AVA 5, or if you have any other questions please don’t hesitate to contact us and a member of our team would be more than happy to help.


We hope to see you again soon. To find out where you can see AVA next please take a look at our events page.

In May 2017 we launched AVA Webinars as part of our Lifelong Learning initiativeThis is a powerful tool that allows us to connect with AVA users around the world and help them to get the most out of their software in a live online environment.

Since then we have delivered our first 10 webinars in three languages covering new features in the latest AVA releases, repeating, separations, and colouring and we are now in the process of scheduling new topics across even more of our supported languages for 2018.

What our customers seem to love about these sessions is that they can dial in from home or work on any device and in just one hour they can take away some tips & tricks from one of our AVA experts.

We’re delighted to see that the number of people taking part in each webinar has increased steadily and the feedback from users has been overwhelmingly positive!

Webinars are provided in addition to technical support and regular customised training, which is still the foundation of Lifelong Learning, and each session is recorded so that it can be accessed by anyone who is not able to attend the live event. At Heimtextil – an international trade fair for home and contract textiles, which will take place in January in Frankfurt – we will be introducing an exciting new platform called AVA TV, where all customers with an active CAD Development Plan will be able to view a schedule of upcoming events and also access recordings of previous webinars.

AVA TV sessions are easy to access via the ‘AVA help menu’ and recordings cover a range of subjects such as Advanced Separation Techniques or Materialize Basics. They are available in many languages and you can request subjects that you would like to see which aren’t listed..

If you have any questions or would like to suggest any future topics please contact us avatv@avacadcam.com
