Uttarbanga Sambad reaffirms confidence in Q.I. Press Controls
Collaboration between Uttarbanga Sambad and Q.I. Press Controls (QIPC) will be further intensified as the leading Bengali daily is investing in new systems from the Dutch specialist in measuring and control equipment. The new installation consists of two different parts—ten mRC-3D cameras for automatic colour register control and two mRC-3D cameras as an extension of the newspaper’s existing automation system.
Uttarbanga Sambad is one of the largest Bengali dailies circulated in the northern region of West Bengal. The newspaper has invested in new QIPC automation systems. QIPC has been expanding its installation base in India, with new and repeat orders receiving from a host of reputed newspapers across the country.
Satisfied with current installation
Partnership between Uttarbanga Sambad and QIPC started four years ago. Since then, the leading Bengali daily, which is based out of Siliguri, has been using QIPC’s measurement and control systems. To a great mutual satisfaction, Rakesh Dave, Managing Director of QIPC-EAE India, says that Uttarbanga Sambad is market leader in the northern region of West Bengal. It is widely circulated in Siliguri and considered as the largest circulated Bengali daily in the city. “The fact is that Uttarbanga Sambad approached us to extend the cooperation showing how satisfied they are with the current installation,” he mentions.
Update and expansion
The new installation of QIPC systems at Uttarbanga Sambad consists of two different parts. The first is that the newspaper invests in ten mRC-3D cameras for automatic colour register control and secondly, two more mRC-3D cameras to serve as an extension of the existing automation system. “The current systems at Uttarbanga Sambad really needed an update,” observes Rakesh Dave. He adds that the newspaper’s main motive for this new investment is to save on waste and in addition, thanks to the groundbreaking QIPC systems, the newspaper will also be able to deliver better and more consistent print quality.
Uttarbanga Sambad is a significant Bengali daily with a history of being the first newspaper printed in West Bengal that did not come from Kolkata. Rakesh Dave calls it the ‘Mouth of northern Bengal’. With 63 percent market share, the newspaper is by far the most important and a flagship daily in the region with its five regional editions being published from Siliguri, Jalpaiguri, Cooch Behar, Alipurduar and Malda.
Rakesh Dave mentions that satisfying Uttarbanga Sambad as their key customer is important to QIPC India. In this respect, he conclusively says, “We assure them that we will maintain our high service and performance standards all through.”
