EFI and Canon Europe, announced that the next-generation Fiery platform, System 9 R2, is powering the new flagship Canon imagePRESS C7010VP, C6010VP and C6010 color presses aimed at the high-end production market.
The three Fiery servers, named imagePRESS Server A3200, A2200 and A1200, coupled with the new Canon presses, ensure customers the highest productivity and most vivid color reproduction with new color tools, support of Adobe PDF Print Engine v2 (APPE) for pure PDF workflows, and improved JDF integration. The Fiery-driven imagePRESS C7010VP was on display on the Canon stand at Ipex.
“Our recently released Fiery technology was designed with today’s demanding print provider requirements in mind, and we worked closely with Canon to make sure customers’ needs were exceeded,” said John Henze, vice president of Fiery marketing, EFI. “Fiery servers ensure perfect color every time, fast document turnaround, and smooth, efficient workflows to help customers realize greater productivity and competitiveness.”
The new Fiery technology delivers documents faster than ever before for Canon customers, boasting more than a 30 percent increase in speed over the previous generation platform driven by new software and hardware innovations.
Fiery technology performs flawlessly in demanding production printing environments. The new “Spool-RIP-Print Simultaneously” capability guarantees the Fiery server spools, RIPs and prints a single multiple page job or multiple jobs at the same time to ensure maximum throughput and increased productivity.
Fiery servers maximize the imagePRESS engines’ color gamut, delivering the most vivid and vibrant colors. The new Fiery Image Enhance feature improves the output quality of digital photos by applying image specific corrections such as red eye removal, cast correction and tone adjustments. Its automated workflow saves prepress time by eliminating lengthy image editing and file manipulation tasks while ensuring photos look their best.
