Three Products from EFI
Fiery JDF Connector, AssureProof, and Fiery EXP8000 for Xerox DocuColor 7000
EFI's Fiery JDF Connector is a "creation-to- fulfillment" JDF integration connecting the Adobe Creative Suite 2 Premium Edition to the EFI Fiery RIP. Available for download from EFI's website, the Connector allows the EFI server and customers using the Creative Suite to increase productivity by automating digital workflows using print job tickets with processing instructions.
The company has also recently teamed with Quickcut to produce the AssureProof hardcopy proofing system, which includes Quickcut's QuickPrint software and the EFI Colorproof XF RIP. The system supports inkjet printers from Canon, Epson, and Hewlett-Packard.
In addition, EFI has also released the Fiery EXP8000 color server for the Xerox DocuColor 7000 Digital Press. Aimed at production print-on-demand environments, the workflow will print at 70 ppm, RIP'ing a new file while simultaneously printing another. It includes EFI's Variable Data Printing solution as well as the Fiery ColorWise in-RIP color-management system. (EFI: www.efi.com)
