EFI Fiery Technology Now Powering Konica Minolta bizhub PRESS C8000 Digital PressFebruary 13, 2012
Fiery servers are a great fit with EFI’s market-leading portfolio of print MIS and workflow solutions, including PrintSmith, Pace™, Radius and Monarch management systems and the EFI Digital StoreFront web-to-print platform.
The award-winning Fiery Command WorkStation 5.3 job management solution and user interface centralizes the entire print workflow, connecting to all Fiery servers on the network. Command WorkStation (CWS) reduces operator mistakes and waste, while shortening learning curves with an intuitive and flexible drag & drop operation. The Fiery Image Enhance Visual Editor (IEVE), a feature of CWS 5.3, allows editing and optimizing of each image in a job without the need for the operator to go back to the native design file, saving time and reducing costs.
Available standard on the bizhub Press C8000, Fiery Graphic Arts Package, Premium Edition provides expert users with professional tools for managing color, proofing and controlling workflow. The solution meets the color requirements of demanding customers and ensures accurate and repeatable color every time by letting operators have total control of color output quality.
Comprehensive imposition and composition tools come standard in Fiery SeeQuence Suite. Fiery SeeQuence Impose and Fiery SeeQuence Compose shorten job preparation times and last minute corrections by enabling users to do all document imposition, composition, and content editing with one intuitive user interface. A 3D preview capability further reduces waste by allowing operators to see exactly how the job will print on the digital press.
In these demanding print environments, operators need to be able to easily perform late-stage edits – colors may need to be adjusted, documents imposed into booklets, and files preflighted or postflighed to ensure the highest quality before printing. The Fiery server provides all these “late-stage makeready” capabilities, without the need for additional applications, making it an ideal solution for high volume, demanding, operator-led print environments.
