Offers better ink and toner control
Speedflow 2.5, OneVision's software solution
for securing and improving PDF workflows,
has been modified to allow users to
better control ink and toner consumption
on the output end. The latest version of the
software includes three new features:
automatic detection of ink coverage problems
and ink reduction; rich black removal;
and enhanced automatic gray detection.
Users of Speedflow 2.5 can automatically
detect if ink or toner coverage might
cause a problem during printing. Once a
problem has been identified, users can
apply a TAC (total area coverage) reduction.
The software reduces the amount of
ink in the areas that are over TAC, but
does not touch the rest of the image.
In addition, Speedflow 2.5 allows the
transfer of rich black into pure black,
which can also save on ink and toner. And,
the software's automatic gray detection
has been enhanced. It now allows the
detection and conversion of LAB data in
grayscales (Windows applications often
construct gray from red, green, and blue
instead of CMYK or black).
Speedflow 2.5 is available in Basic
(two modules including Speedflow Check
and Speedflow Edit), Suite (adds Speedflow
Impose), and Cockpit (JDF-enabled)
versions. (OneVision: www.onevision.com)
