Canon and EFI have launched the new imagePRESS Server H300 from Canon, powered by EFI Fiery technology, and designed specifically for the imagePRESS C850 and C750 digital presses for commercial printing and in-plant production, as well as the imagePRESS C65 digital press aimed at creative design production operations.
The imagePRESS Server H300 is based on the new Fiery NX Pro hardware platform and Fiery FS200 Pro system software. The new Fiery QuickTouch software on the H300 server’s LCD colour touchscreen display, according to the companies, offers faster views of job status information and easier device management. The touchscreen display gives operators access to intuitive system installation, backup and restore functions, plus system diagnostics information.
The NX Pro server can be housed in the new, optional EFI Fiery NX Station LS, which holds a 20 percent smaller footprint than previous Fiery workstations. It also features an adjustable-height work space, proximity sensor, and sliding server shelf for maintenance.
The imagePRESS Server H300 is designed to provide image quality, colour management and image-processing performance. Its Fiery DFE technology can process the new Ghent PDF Output Suite version 5.0.
Users can also leverage the latest version of EFI’s JDF-certified Fiery technology, which can connect users’ imagePRESS operations into plant-wide workflows. It provides integration to EFI MIS/ERP and web-to-print products, Canon’s PRISMA software suite of workflow for production print, and other prepress workflow solutions – including Kodak Prinergy, Heidelberg Prinect and Agfa Apogee.
This server supports the Adobe PDF Print Engine rendering platform and a variety of variable-data formats and standards, including PDF/VT 2 and PPML 3.0, giving users added flexibility to create higher-value, personalized documents.
