Electronics For Imaging and San Diego-based Memjet have established a new partnership, bringing EFI Fiery digital front ends (DFEs) to the growing portfolio of Memjet DuraLink digital inkjet production solutions.
The parties say that EFI’s development of Fiery DFE solutions for printers featuring DuraLink technology means Memjet OEM customers will have access to successful and reliable print servers for production-class digital colour printing.
“We have installed a Fiery DFE to drive a seven-colour digital press in Memjet’s headquarters demo centre, and both our team and our partners are impressed with the way the Fiery DFE enables superior colour and image control. It also offers customers advanced job management and the ability to produce versioned and variable print runs at engine-rated speed,” said Eric Owen, General Manager of Commercial Press for Memjet. “Fiery technology, combined with DuraLink’s speed, image quality and reliability, bring tremendous added value to Memjet’s DuraLink partners.”
EFI is offering Fiery DFEs for digital printing presses that incorporate DuraLink printheads, saying the new solution being developed for DuraLink devices is designed to capture the advantages of the EFI Fiery FS350 Pro: colour and imaging, productivity, management tools and connectivity. Plus, the Fiery DFEs for Memjet DuraLink presses will help users make on-the-fly corrections and late-stage colour edits at the DFE for uninterrupted production.
The DFEs will also include EFI Fiery Color Profiler Suite software, which provides colour management tools available for profile creation, inspection, editing and colour quality assurance. Fiery Color Profiler Suite also features G7 System Certification for re-calibration, correct tonality and grey balance, and higher saturated colours.
The Fiery XB hardware configuration for the new DFEs is a scalable architecture that keeps engines running at rated speeds to meet demanding production requirements. Fiery XB consumes all variable-data formats and languages, including PDF and PDF/VT and, for high-volume transactional print applications, it complies with native intelligent printer data stream (IPDS) workflows and is certified IS/3 compliant.
Users will also have the advantage of using the EFI Fiery Command WorkStation interface – print management software that provides continuity across all Fiery Driven digital equipment, including cut-sheet and continuous-feed devices and wide- and superwide-format display graphics printers. The new Fiery DFEs will also give DuraLink device users expanded workflow management efficiencies through automated, bi-directional communication and integration with EFI’s MIS/ERP and web-to-print products.
