Version 7.0 of Screen’s Trueflow SE software includes a new Equiosnet application designed to integrate CTP and “digital” (toner or inkjet) printing processes, based on Adobe PDF Print Engine 2.
The company plans to make the upgrade available in early 2010. With its Equiosnet system, Screen is introducing a new approach to its job ticket and imposition engine functions. Initially, this effort focuses on a software module called Equios Pre4m to handle the JDF stripping parameters within Trueflow.
Screen, a division of Japan-based Dainippon Screen Mfg. Co., claims that Equios Pre4m features a new design for better enabling MIS and post-press systems through JDF, as the workflow unites data and process management into a single system before any printing takes place.
