Agfa Graphics has introduced version 8 of its Fortuna printing design software used to secure and prevent counterfeiting and theft. It is designed for use in the highest security printing applications, such as passports, ID cards, official documents, certificates and tax labeling, as well as design vouchers, lottery or event tickets.
Fortuna 8, which was developed in close cooperation with the security industry, includes numerous improvements that facilitate the creation of fraud-deterrent security designs. By streamlining the PDF file generation in Fortuna 8, its compliancy with prepress workflows is increased. This in turn results in further automation of the production process.
“With this new version Agfa Graphics strengthens its position as a reliable partner to many government institutions and private industries worldwide,” said Andy Grant, head of Software at Agfa Graphics. “We provide innovative security design tools that help them stay ahead of counterfeiters.”
Fortuna software features different levels of verification tools, both for the expert and for non-qualified end users who can determine a true product from a fake one. The software includes a graphical base editor, with integrated security features. The software is based on a modular architecture for upgrading.
