Agfa Graphics has launched its newest version, 9.1, of its Apogee Prepress workflow. Apogee Prepress v9.1 with more support for wide-format printing, as well as what the Belgian company describes as improved imposition layout creation and stronger print buyer interaction in Apogee WebApproval.

“Apogee Prepress is the only hybrid prepress production solution that drives wide-format and digital commercial presses, in addition to CTP, CTF and proofing devices,” said Andy Grant, Global Head of Software, Agfa Graphics.

Apogee Prepress v9.1 is designed to automate the production for wide-format output with hot ticket support and template-based production. Agfa explains the new version also features enhanced job merging, which allows for the combination of completely different orders on the same print job, ultimately to reduce material costs and waste.

For web presses, Apogee Impose, which is a built-in Apogee function, now features automatic bleed generation and better support for perfector presses based on full support for slow down rollers, which Agfa describes as unique.

In terms of proofing, Apogee Prepress v9.1 features improvements like support for on-the-fly page proofing and support for ISO12647/2:2013 and ISO 13655 standards. Apogee WebApproval gives print buyers access to soft proofs via their Web browser, allowing them to drag and drop new PDF pages to a specific job and to then assign them to the correct page slots.
