Electronics For Imaging (EFI) has introduced two new digital front ends (DFEs), the embedded Fiery E-24B DFE and external Fiery E-44B DFE. The new DFEs are based on the latest Fiery FS200 Pro platform and were launched to drive Ricoh’s print engines, the Ricoh Pro C5200s and C5210s.
The DFEs can process graphically complex files with EFI’s Fiery SmartRIP technology and streamline production with the Fiery Command WorkStation interface. Optional add-ons such as Fiery Impose and Fiery JobMaster or the premium edition of the Fiery Graphic Arts Package allow users to access visual preview and advanced make-ready capabilities or troubleshoot digital designs before printing, respectively.
“With Fiery E-44B DFE, users also get the advantage of EFI’s innovative, proprietary Dynamic HD Text and Graphics feature for accurate, high-quality reproduction of ultra-thin lines and fine details in text,” Vice President of Fiery marketing at EFI John Henze says.
Both DFEs are now available from Ricoh and authorized Ricoh resellers.
