Latest Fiery XF and Fiery Prep-it Software bring greater flexibility and automation
Electronics For Imaging, Inc. has unveiled its newest digital front end (DFE) and workflow solutions for display graphics and industrial printing, EFI Fiery XF/Fiery proServer version 7.3 and EFI Fiery Prep-it workflow software.
Print shops managing numerous wide- and superwide-format inkjet printers and cutters want a single DFE and automated workflow software that can simplify and integrate their operation, reduce operator training, and achieve consistent high-quality color output. Fiery XF 7.3 with Prep-It addresses these challenges by adding the technology that highly productive organizations need.
Fiery XF 7.3 software and the EFI Fiery proServer digital front end (DFE) now have added support for more than 180 new printer drivers from Agfa, Canon, d.gen, Durst, HP, Mimaki, Mutoh, Roland DG, and Teckwin among others, bringing the total number of Fiery-supported printer models to more than 1,200. Customers can also now request a driver for an additional 400+ printers to complete support for their shop’s installed printer base.
This release also includes a new printing mode that can reduce the processing time of jobs that include spot colors by up to 50%. Users can choose between presets that select the highest accuracy (e.g., for proofing applications with certain spot color settings) or highest speed as their priority when processing jobs.
