Enfocus it will showcase its Switch automation technology and PitStop family of quality control products at Enfocus booth 2032 at On Demand 2011, March 22-24 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C.
Enfocus executives will be available to provide individualized demonstrations of the latest versions of its modular, powerhouse automation solution, Switch; and new PitStop Connect solution.
In addition, Enfocus Switch will be featured in the Publishing Automation: Latest Tools and Technologies session being held March 23, at 2 pm, in Room 146.
Enfocus' Switch solution lets users automate repetitive tasks, thereby standardizing their work and reducing errors. Switch offers an easy-to-use visual interface to automate processes using simple drag-and-drop, and allows users to easily integrate with other third-party applications.
Switch 09, Update 2: This latest update of the Switch automation software suite includes a new tool for routing Enfocus Certified PDF files, depending on their preflight status. The Switch Update also adds compatibility with the newest features in PitStop Server 10, which was released in October. PitStop Server 10 users can now create Switch flows to not only preflight files, but to also automate transparency flattening - with or without preflighting. Switch 09 Update 2 also adds four new configurators - for solutions from Dynagram, Elpical, ColorLogic and Axaio - and updates existing configurators.
PitStop Connect lets printers and publishers create Connectors to deliver files directly into Switch via an FTP server, including metadata. It also allows them to incorporate Enfocus' bulletproof PDF preflighting and correction technologies to receive PDFs that meet their requirements.
Printers and publishers can distribute Connectors—without incurring additional costs— to as many creative professionals as needed, either via an FTP site or by posting it on a website. The no-installation-necessary Connectors are free to the creative professional, who just drops completed files on the Connector icon for automatic preflight and delivery according to the printer or publisher's specifications. Files are delivered to the printers' FTP or right into Switch.
New in PitStop Connect 09, Update 1: This first update to PitStop Connect 09 allows updating Connectors and live feedback during operations, and is free to all existing PitStop Connect users.
Enfocus PitStop Pro, Update 1: PitStop Pro has long been recognized for its many PDF editing features and user-friendly design, enabling easy management and customization of presets and tools. The feedback Enfocus gathers as part of its 'You first' commitment to customers contributed to the further expansion of these features in PitStop Pro 10, which was introduced in September 2010. Update 1 offers compatibility with the latest Adobe Acrobat X Standard and Pro. It also introduces compatibility with the latest PDF/X-4:2010 and PDF/A ISO standards.
