Software manufacturer OneVision has equipped its prepress package Asura with new features for “automated print file preparation” and “PDF workflow”.
The creation of proof forms and nesting reports are tedious, time-consuming tasks for print service providers. OneVision now provides pre-configured assembly lines and templates that enable automated generation of proof forms and nesting reports, and thus fully automates these processes. The functionality can be used by all Asura and Automation Suite users through the “Proof Forms and VDP” module.
The term “PDF/UA” refers to a defined ISO standard for barrier-free PDF technology, which allows content to be output by screen readers. This standard is mandatory, especially at universities, for administrative purposes and archiving. To ensure the output file complies with this standard, OneVision’s Preflight can now automatically check whether it is a valid PDF/UA document. Incorrect documents will be rejected, while correct files will retain their UA status during output.
OneVision’s Nesting module comes with added functionality. Users can now decide whether elements should be kept together during nesting or not (random distribution of elements on a sheet is thus avoided).
Asura technology is also included in the OneVision Automation Suites for wide-format, label, book, and commercial printing.
