CTP (Computer-to-Plate) is a technology of the prepress process in which a digital image is transmitted directly from a computer to a plate used on the printing press. It eliminates the need for producing film (negatives), light table colour stripping and the use of print down frames for burning plates.

Not only does the technology reduce costs and increase efficiency, it offers better consistency and higher quality because it eliminates the risk of human error since files are transmitted digitally to the plate material.

The chances of having mis-registration (colour offsets) is significantly reduced. The problem of dot-gain or loss from the pre-press is eliminated.
