Kodak has officially launched its Prinergy Workflow 7 software system, with several new features, for automating the printing process. The company explains its new version focuses on automating core workflow functions like job creation, collaboration, file processing, trapping, proofing, imposition and colour management.
One of the new features allows for callas Preflight Profile Integration. Preflight+ allows the integration of callas preflight profiles for improved quality control and reduced manual touch points.
“Our goal has always been to develop technology that is reliable, innovative and flexible, all key requirements for automation,” said Dietrich von Seggern, Business Development Manager, callas software. “We believe that the combination of a versatile client server system, Prinergy Workflow and our pdfToolbox technology will be the right answer for many customers.”
Prinergy 7 also includes what the company describes as layered PDF versioning enhancements, which provide improved error detection and better control over multiple layers of files.
In terms of digital printing enhancements, Prinergy 7 allows for centralized control over digital and conventional presses and equipment to handle the production of all job sizes through Kodak and third-party digital presses and computer-to-plate devices. These new capabilities make it possible for Prinergy 7 to control job ticketing parameters both manually and through Rules Based Automation (RBA) of multiple devices, while monitoring and reporting the status of each alongside CTP devices and proofers.
“Workflow software is a driver of efficiency and productivity and Prinergy Workflow 7 takes those to new heights and enables our customers to better compete in a challenging marketplace,” said Jeff Clarke, CEO, Eastman Kodak Company.
