Enfocus (Booth 246) is demonstrating PitStop Pro 11 and PitStop Server 11, which marks the introduction of 'Smart Preflight & Correction', delivering complete PDF quality control and the ability to fix problems in seconds. It provides users with a flexible solution to preflight and correct PDF files according to their specific production requirements.
While PitStop Pro 11 allows users to enter values specific for each job manually, users enjoy a completely hands-off, new level of automation with PitStop Server 11. This allows users to automate the preflighting and correction of PDF files, driven by job-specific information contained in JDF or XML job tickets.
The new version introduces the concept of 'Variable Sets', a group of variables to be used when preflighting or correcting PDF file. A variable within PitStop Server 11 points to specific information in an XML or JDF job ticket. When the job ticket arrives along with the PDF file, the right values are automatically provided for the preflight check. All customer-specific requirements are checked and corrected without the need for manual intervention. Variables are also supported by Actions Lists allowing job specific corrections. Through the ability to use tickets coming from MIS, web portal or order entry systems, PitStop Server 11 offers significant opportunities to automate high-volume production processes. It allows users to gain competitive edge and win more business. PitStop Server also seamlessly fits into Enfocus Switch to provide preflighting and auto-correction in a fully automated way.
