The open house slated for tonight at Cactus Imaging has been postponed until February next year, due to the impact of today’s storms in Sydney.

Nigel Davies, president of the SGIAA, notified guests in an email this morning. “Due to the terrible weather in Sydney currently, we regret to advise that we have postponed the event until the new year. The provisional date for the revised event will now be Wednesday 6 February,” he said. “We will refund any attendance fees through the Eventbrite system in the next few days and look forward to seeing you in the new year.”

The new Fujifilm Acuity Ultra was to be the star attraction at the open house originally planned for tonight at Cactus Imaging. The event, hosted by Fujifilm and the SGIAA, will be the Australian launch of the Acuity Ultra. Cactus, owned by outdoor giant oOh!Media, is the first Acuity Ultra customer in Australia, and Keith Ferrel, general manager, says it has been well worth the price. “We have one of the first in the world, and we could not be happier with the quality,” he said.

The Acuity Ultra comes in 5 metre and 3.2 metre widths, with up to eight colour channels, including white. Ashley Playford, national sales manager for graphic systems at Fujifilm, says he is looking forward to showing off its high print quality tonight. “We were delighted when Cactus decided to be the first business in Australia to install the new Acuity Ultra. This is a platform that delivers high quality at high speed. Cactus has a long pedigree of being first to market with the latest print innovations, and the Acuity Ultra is a great addition to its already impressive print arsenal,” he said.
