Operapath is a high-resolution lenticular film (200 lpi) with an ink-receiving layer. This innovation allows the film to be printed on directly using an inkjet printer. Thus, even smaller lenticular halftone printing runs can be produced variably. In addition, an image-processing technology specially developed for the lenticular film makes it possible to create image-morphing effects and high-quality 3D images with a bokeh effect.
Statement by the Jury
By adding an ink-receiving layer to the lenticular film, Operapath provides printing companies with greater flexibility in lenticular halftone printing, thus opening up more possibilities.
