Big Picture

DALiM Software's Dalim DiALOGUE version 3.0 soft-proofing solution runs on Mac OS X, as well as all other operating systems, and is designed as a standalone product compatible with a range of automated workflows. It integrates data-streaming technology with standard Web browsers, enabling users to view high-resolution job files in real time without the need for client software or browser plug-ins.

In version 3.0, users can view; zoom in/out; navigate; place annotations; draw to highlight areas; take densitometer readings; check production parameters; and chat in real time. Version 3.0 also has a new job-approval feature. When it's enabled, users view a set of icons that accompany a document icon, informing them of each document's current approval status, as well as document history and user comments if requested. Once the document has been given the go-ahead, an "Approved" icon appears, informing the printer that the production process can continue. Further actions users can initiate include copying or moving files to another file folder or renaming files while copying them.

Project participants can subscribe to an e-mail list within Dalim Dialogue and be immediately notified of job changes, such as new document versions in need of review, additional comments, or a change in approval status. (Dalim Software: www.dalim.com)
