Agfa Graphics (Booths 844, 2611) is debuting :Apogee Impose, the new rules-based imposition module that is part of the :Apogee 7 workflow management software suite. Instead of using pre-defined templates that must be manually edited for each job, :Apogee Impose software uses all job information from :Apogee 7: number of colors, page size, product part information such as cover, body and insert; and available equipment (prepress, press and bindery) to calculate and propose the imposition scheme.
Agfa :Apogee Impose was developed by Agfa in response to customer input about the difficulty and limitations of having to use thousands of different templates for imposition. :Apogee Impose bases its calculation on actual job composition. A set of production rules results in the same imposition scheme each time they are applied. Any number of rules can be defined, altered and applied for custom jobs.
