Xitron, an independent developer of RIP and printing workflow software, launches version 6.5 of its Xenith Sierra prepress workflow.
“Sierra 6.5 has been highly anticipated due to the addition of APPE 3.6, Adobe’s next-generation rendering engine,” said Eric Nelsen, Xitron’s VP of Product Development. “The difference in speed and interpretive accuracy, especially with live transparency, is remarkable.”
Nelsen explains version 6.5 of Sierra, by taking advantage of 64-bit processing and large addressable memory space, equates to a nearly 15 percent increase in performance over previous versions of the software.
Xitron explains the new Sierra architecture also provides the framework for driving any high-speed toner press at its full rated speed, which is designed to help coordinate workflows for companies also running offset printing equipment. “It doesn’t have to be one or the other,” said Nelsen. “Nor does the addition of a digital press mean two separate workflows. With Sierra 6.5, all jobs come through this central engine and are rendered appropriately.”
Xitron has more than 300 Xenith installations across the U.S., Canada, Europe, and Latin America. Sierra is capable of driving over 200 different output devices from Screen, Agfa, Heidelberg, FujiFilm, Presstek, Esko, and others.
