EQUIOS: a single universal workflow to drive complete, multi-device, production
At drupa, Screen launches its EQUIOS Universal workflow that has been designed for conventional and personalized printing environments. This single workflow with a single interface drives streamlined production from Web-to-print to the delivery of the finished item automatically. With EQUIOS, users don’t need to operate different device-dependent workflows, each with a different way of handling imposition and color management, to drive their variety of Screen and third party CTP, toner and inkjet devices.
EQUIOS provides integrated job management with consistent color management across different output devices. Communication with a variety of third-party finishing systems is automated via EQUIOS JDF.
The EQUIOS Autoflow function, which will be shown for the first time at drupa, will allow users to define print workflows according to the product type selected. This can be integrated into any web2print interface so that web ordering automatically generates a print queue and associated finishing instructions.
