Kinwood is an Environmentally Responsible Company

Kinwood Multimedia has adopted many environmental initiatives through the years and is proud to have aligned ourselves with a leading Environmentally Friendly Canadian Manufacturer. Through the many processes involved in the manufacturing of CDs, DVDs, plastic cards and commercial print products the plant has always been sensitive to the need for cleaner technologies, recycling programs, training, education and accountability throughout each department.

Waterless Offset Press w/ UV Inks
With the addition of a five colour offset waterless press the ability to print with UV inks / UV drying allows them the opportunity to maintain a higher level of environmentally friendly print production than traditional printers with traditional presses. The waterless press allows for less use of solvents and chemicals in cleaning and cutting of the inks. UV inks and coating are completely solid and friendlier to the environment since they are free from VOCs and HAPs (Hazardous Airborne Particles).
The UV printing process requires similar or lower electrical power than Infrared/Thermal Air Systems. It yields less ink and wash-up waste than conventional print since there is no waste from incidental drying.
Traditionally presses use approximately 300-500 sheets of paper to set up or “make ready” prior to printing while the KBA Waterless press only uses between 20-30 sheets. This results in only 10% of the industry norms in make ready which equates to a substantial reduction in paper usage, thousands of trees saved, considerably less electricity and ink consumption used annually.
Stock inventories include our many options in environmentally friendly paper and board stocks while continuing to seek out the next generation of Enviro-stocks. From 40% post consumer stocks to 100% recycled board products. Also, these eco friendly options are available (at no extra charge) for all our CD digipaks, DVD digipaks, CD printed materials, DVD printed materials, DVD trapsheets, DVD slipsheets, CD and DVD inserts, and CD cardboard sleeve packaging for all CD duplication, CD replication, DVD duplication and DVD replication projects (big and small).

Recycling Programs are numerous and in place throughout the company; from the traditional office and employee recyclables through to the recycling of films, metal plates, chemicals, paper products, discarded CDs and discarded DVDs helping secure the company as a steward of the environment. If you have extra CD media or DVD media from your CD Duplication, CD Replication, DVD Duplication or DVD Replication project, you can return the discs to us to have them properly recycled by us on your behalf.

How effective is a video communication?

According to National Training Laboratory Institute for Applied Behavioural Science  effective teaching methods are:

Seeing or hearing a lecture – 5% knowledge retention
Reading – 10% knowledge retention

Video– 20% knowledge retention
Demonstration– 30% knowledge retention
Practice by Doing – 75% knowledge retention

This means that video and demonstrations have a higher effectiveness than simply being told something or reading something on a memo.

This is especially effective in advertising, but works very well in business. For example, companies who need to tell a story, promote a new product or service,  training, communicate to current or potential clients or keep your employees informed of changes or upcoming events.

Video is an invaluable resource that can be distributed on flash drives, on disc, on tape.  video stream etc.  Many people are visual learners and these videos
can be great ways to not only reach people, but ensure they’ll remember the information presented.
