Kingery Printing Selects Kodak Solutions for Integrated Workflow
“Printing is an extremely deadline oriented business,” said Mike Flack, Kingery Printing’s Systems Manager. “The time frames we deal with get tighter and tighter. The only way we can make it happen is by using Kodak workflow and remote proofing systems to speed along the process. Another benefit of this kind of automation is that we’ve literally been able to save our customers thousands of dollars on jobs. It’s helped us attract business.”
Kodak Prinergy workflow systems are complete, modular and scalable PDF based workflow solutions that allow users to easily customize and optimize their workflow. They deliver intelligent automation, optimized production management, and flexible integration options for unprecedented speed, quality and control in production. Kodak Prinergy software uses Job Definition Format (JDF), Adobe software compliant Job Tickets (PJTF), Job Ticket Processors (JTP), and Rules Based Automation to control and automate workflow tasks.
In addition to the Prinergy Connect system, over the past several months Kingery Printing added:
Kodak InSite software to streamline the processes of job submission, job status tracking, online collaboration, and remote proofing or approval. InSite is an Internet portal into the Kodak Brisque and Kodak Prinergy prepress system environments. From any Web enabled computer in any location at any time, customers, prepress operators, and customer service representatives can manage and track job activity, proof print jobs online, collaborate with creative and prepress staff on changes, and approve work.
Kodak Matchprint Virtual software for InSite proofing software, which allows print buyers to view proofs on calibrated monitors at different locations with consistent and accurate color. This SWOP certified solution reduces job cycle time by providing consistent color management across multi monitor system configurations, ensuring effective real time collaboration with accurate color viewing, saving on the costs of making and shipping multiple proofs.
Kodak PressProof software to extend the benefits of monitor proofing to the pressroom. PressProof software employs SWOP certified Kodak Matchprint Virtual Proofing technology to provide accurate and consistent color guidance by displaying a proof for viewing on qualified LCD monitors. PressProof software allows press operators to view the same color accurate proof viewed by agencies, designers, prepress professionals, publishers, and others involved in the creative and print production processes.
