ExpressConnect, offers small to medium size commercial printers a complete web-based job submission and online proofing solution that can be incorporated with most workflows. A printer’s customers will be able to submit their PDFs or PostScript™ files via ExpressConnect anytime day or night. Once submitted, PDF files are automatically preflighted. If PostScript files are submitted, the integrated PDF Creator option generates a normalized PDF and then preflights the PDF file. ExpressConnect prices will begin at under $10,000 for a complete solution.
“ExpressConnect was developed to provide small and medium commercial printers the online submission and proofing capabilities previously afforded only by the larger shops,” Mark Eisenschenk, Xitron’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “Xitron continues to focus our product development efforts on providing innovative and cost effective solutions for this market segment.”
TotalProof Raster is the latest in proofing plug-ins for the Navigator RIP and Navigator GPS workflows. This new plug-in creates a raster PDF of the actual output file that will be sent to the final output devices thus allowing the printer to provide a RIPped file proof to their customers. TotalProof Raster is an option to Navigator 8 and Navigator GPS 8 workflow solutions.
