EFI and Agfa Graphics are offering JDF integration between EFI’s Fiery digital front ends and Agfa’s Apogee 10 system. The connection is designed specifically for print shops with a blended workflow of offset and digital machines; it will enable Apogee users to further automate the distribution of print jobs for the best possible workflow. In addition, Fiery digital front ends report job status data directly to Apogee, so prepress and production operators can monitor job status in real time.

Apogee features include connections to CtP for plate imaging and the ability to split parts of a job, while Fiery users can access HyperRIP job acceleration technology, job prep and color management tools, and JDF templates directly from the Apogee interface.
