PRINT 13 attendees have the unique opportunity to experience some of Enfocus’ brand new solutions at Booth 4743. The leader in automation and creator of the PDF preflight and editing application, PitStop Pro, is showcasing its new Connect 11 product family. Connect 11 solves file problems at designers’ and creative professionals’ desktops—before files are sent for production—saving time, money, and production delays.
The Connect 11 product family is designed to bridge the gap between designers and production professionals. It helps designers deliver high quality files that are correct the first time, thus ensuring the production of high quality PDFs regardless of the document creation application used, or the PDF skill levels at the designer level.
Enfocus Connect is built on a platform that takes the best of proven Enfocus Instant PDF and PitStop Connect, improving and replacing them with a state-of-the-art product family that brings unprecedented PDF creation, job delivery automation, and quality control to the process. Collaboration between designers and producers is easy and consistent. Two versions of the Enfocus Connect 11 product family are available: Connect YOU for individuals, and Connect ALL for service providers or large creative groups.
Enfocus Connect YOU is an affordable, easy-to-use single-user solution that allows anyone to create high quality PDFs from any application, and to deliver them automatically to a production site, with job instructions related to the file included. PDFs are written to preset standards, then checked, corrected, and uploaded automatically with one click. No special operator skills are required.
Enfocus Connect ALL allows print service providers to easily deploy and manage Connect solutions to an unlimited number of outside clients. Connectors can be customized for individual clients, or created for general use functions such as job submission, and distributed to many clients. Each Connector that is created can be tailored to create, verify, and fix high quality PDFs, collect electronic job ticket information, and deliver jobs to a variety of servers such as FTP, HTTP, and Enfocus Switch.
Connector icons can be branded with a company logo or background to personalize the service even more. End-to-end automation is also made possible when combining Connect ALL with Enfocus Switch, offering a seamless automation environment for the graphic arts professional.
PRINT 13 attendees will also see the latest version of Enfocus’ flagship PitStop Pro technology. New image and blend editing and correction features have been added in PitStop version 12, due for release this month. PitStop Pro 12 enables users to fix last minute problems in seconds and improves the efficiency of PDF editing workflows dramatically. PitStop Server 12, the automated PDF processor, can now apply preset image enhancement Actions and also gains the industry standard Adobe transparency flattening engine as well as true 64-bit operations for greater memory access.
The latest in automation, Enfocus’ new Switch 11, version 4, will be demonstrated to attendees. Switch 11 includes support for PitStop Server 11 update 2, WoodWing Enterprise 8, HP SmartStream Production Pro Print Server, and StuffIt Deluxe 15. It also includes a new configurator to control Ultimate Technographics’ Impostrip OnDemand Automation solution. The Web Services Module in the new version has been reorganized and improved to allow easier deployment with customer websites.
