Onyx Graphics Joins Initiative to Bring JDF Standards to Wide-Format Printing
Onyx Graphics has worked closely with other JDF alliance partners including Cyrious Software, a leading provider of estimating and business management software, to increase automation of job submission and business information.
“Cyrious is very pleased to be working with Onyx Graphics, HP and the other certified JDF partners in what is a natural next step for increasing productivity and profitability,” said Cyrious co-CEO Charlie Carter. “Being able to exchange information between Cyrious Control, Onyx RIPs and the other JDF certified equipment and systems will sharpen the accuracy of estimating profitability, increase the visibility and manageability of work-in-process in production, and reduce costly errors.”
Initiated by Adobe Systems, Agfa, Heidelberg and manroland, JDF was handed over to CIP4 in 2004. While the initial focus was on sheet-fed offset and narrow-format digital print workflow, it expanded to encompass roll-fed systems, newspaper workflows, and packaging and label workflows. This new initiative aims to bring JDF to large format print providers to help them deliver new levels of efficiency and productivity. JDF provides a standard set of pre-defined data interface points between systems that connect workflow steps from creation, pre-press, production, finishing, and distribution to printing, archiving and reprinting of documents.
