EFI has introduced new version 6.2 upgrades to its Fiery software and Fiery proServer frontends for wide-format inkjet printing, including what the company describes as major improvements in processing speeds for EFI VUTEk printers.
EFI states the new Fiery software and Fiery proServer 6.2 provide average speed improvements of over 60 percent for EFI VUTEk users, compared to previous versions. The software upgrade is combined with EFI-developed FAST RIP technology.
New printer drivers are also available for Agfa, Canon, EFI, Epson, HP, Mimaki and OKI systems in these latest Fiery product releases, which increases the supported printers in EFI’s Fiery offering to more than 700 wide-format printer models. As well, EFI is noting new finishing enhancements that provide smoother integration for cutters as well as faster and more flexible file processing on jobs that feature cut paths.
“Graphics professionals need more than just a RIP to advance their businesses,” said John Henze, VP of Marketing for EFI Fiery, “and the faster processing and automated cut path extraction technologies announced today answer our customers’ need for an integrated, best-in-class workflow.”
A bidirectional job definition format (JDF) link included in these upgraded products provides information about the printer status, job status and consumables usage to EFI’s Midmarket Productivity Suite MIS workflow as well as to EFI Digital StoreFront Web-to-print software.
