An end-to-end JDF workflow solution with tremendous flexibility and increased integration capabilities, FUJIFILM Workflow XMF provides printers the flexibility and ease-of-use they need to increase their productivity, quality and efficiency. It has been developed to address the needs of today’s printers and the challenges of shorter print runs, increasingly complex jobs and quick turnaround times. During GRAPH EXPO 2010, FUJIFILM Workflow XMF will drive the revolutionary FUJIFILM Digital Inkjet J Press 720.
Utilizing the latest advancements to create an open and scalable workflow, FUJIFILM Workflow XMF is capable of cross-connectivity between a variety of print environments, including offset, digital and wide format. The solution is actually a complete JDF engine that incorporates the most recent Adobe® PDF Print Engine technology and is capable of achieving huge increases in RIP speed and output performance. Workflow XMF’s “pure PDF” technology means that original PDF content is preserved throughout the workflow, with instructions for processes such as imposition stored as JDF data in an associated JDF Job Bag. This clean PDF implementation requires no internal conversions or file “flattening” to carry out job processing.
With FUJIFILM Workflow XMF, users can create and edit impositions live from within the workflow with dynamic templates, easily changing parameters as required. This means there are fewer templates to manage, saving time and reducing the chance of error. Not only does Workflow XMF apply intelligent automation at the end of the prepress process when it allocates jobs to different presses, it applies it at the job input with full pre-flighting capabilities and action list support.
Based on open standards, FUJIFILM Workflow XMF is designed to remain compatible with new print technologies, preserving a printer’s investment in the future. As a printer’s business grows, Workflow XMF’s modular and scalable architecture allows users to increase capacity and productivity and expand the range of services. The workflow solution is suitable for printers with minimal press equipment as well as for larger printers requiring additional RIPs and processing speed.
