Electronics For Imaging and Konica Minolta Business Solutions launched a new EFI Fiery digital front end (DFE) to enhance the performance of Konica Minolta bizhub PRESS 1052/1250 black-and-white toner presses.
“This is the first monochrome Fiery DFE to bring the industry-leading Fiery technology to the Konica Minolta black-and-white print engines,” said John Henze, VP, Fiery marketing, EFI. “We are very excited to launch this new offering and give Konica Minolta customers in the in-plant CRD, print-for-pay, and commercial print spaces the ability to integrate their black-and-white and colour operations for a consolidated, more efficient Fiery-driven job-management environment.”
The new EFI Fiery MIC-4150 DFE is built on the latest Fiery FS200 Pro platform. Among a range of features, the new DFE includes Fiery Command WorkStation as a centralized user interface that allows users to manage the monochromatic bizhub PRESS 1052/1250 printers along with Fiery DFEs on colour digital presses in a tightly integrated workflow.
The new DFE also includes EFI’s Fiery Grayscale Calibration, designed to ensure consistent and accurate image reproduction by automatically enhancing shadow details and preserving upper and lower tonal variances.
The optional Fiery ImageViewer for Black and White is a full-resolution raster preview tool that gives users the ability to make black curve adjustments to maintain output consistency between multiple devices.
The optional Fiery Impose and Fiery JobMaster are visual makeready tools that streamline complex tasks, giving users more flexibility in imposition, tab insertion and design, page-level ticketing, finishing, scanning and late-stage editing.
