EFI Launches a New MicroPress Production Workflow Solution
Foster City, CA (Feb. 18, 2009) – EFI, a world leader in customer-focused digital printing innovation, today launched a significantly enhanced version of EFI MicroPress®, its scalable production workflow solution, with easier to use document management tools, a simplified user interface, and enhanced make-ready features to produce complex documents for fast turn-around. EFI MicroPress helps mid-to-high volume digital print environments maximize their current equipment investment by providing a high-performance document production system that streamlines prepress work, automates manual processes, and optimizes engine speed to efficiently produce color and black and white documents.
EFI MicroPress version 8.0 supports the latest industry standard file formats, and is the first EFI RIP with the power to natively process PostScript®, PDF and XPS, resulting in faster, more accurate throughput. EFI MicroPress takes advantage of powerful hardware solutions to support 64-bit functionality, providing production print environments with the fastest, most capable late-stage editing solution available, allowing the highest level of flexibility before final production.
EFI MicroPress’ TrueEdit make-ready module dramatically streamlines workflow and increases productivity by automating manual processes such as hand collating, tab inserting, document renumbering and booklet creation, enabling the set-up of even the most complex jobs in just a few clicks. With version 8.0, TrueEdit now supports more tab options, including bleed edge tabs, tabs with images, background color and 2-lines. Scanning support has been enhanced, simplifying the inserting or replacing of scanned pages in an existing document.
The enhanced OCR support in EFI MicroPress enables the user to choose between different OCR modes, and to have OCR of any region of the page, including tabs. These flexible features are ideal in a fast-paced production environment.
EFI MicroPress 8.0 delivers expanded color features, including support for PANTONE Goe spot colors and four new color set-ups. PANTONE Goe is an entirely new color system from Pantone, intended to complement the world standard PANTONE MATCHING SYSTEM by offering more colors (2,058 in total).
