Fiery SeeQuence JobMaster (Booth 2000) is a new option for Fiery print servers that provides advanced PDF-based job preparation functions. The solution adds WYSIWYG tab insertion, scanning, page editing and page numbering to current SeeQuence Suite imposition and composition workflows.
The JobMaster workspace offers intuitive document assembly, WYSIWYG page-level ticketing, chapterization, preview and editing features. It displays jobs in a page and sheet view, both working together to display media attributes at a glance for quick job navigation and to show how job assembly edits in page view affect the printed output.
The tab insertion function has a WYSIWYG preview that changes dynamically as users program tab ear settings and content.
The scanning function allows user to integrate and clean up hard copy pages inside the Fiery workflow. Using a TWAIN interface, users can make images fit to media size for a uniform appearance on every page; mask out staples, hole-punch marks or page content; de-skew and de-speckle documents; and edit images for brightness, contrast and sharpness.
Users can number pages after creating the job from multiple sources, add page numbers anywhere on the page, skip page numbers to avoid inserts or tabs and include page number templates for predefined numbering styles.
SeeQuence JobMaster comes with Enfocus PitStop Edit for last minute text, spot color or image changes in PDF documents.
Fiery SeeQuence JobMaster launches from the Fiery Command WorkStation user interface. This provides a number of benefits:
- Flexibility: JobMaster can run either on the user’s PC or Mac desktop or locally at the Fiery server.
- Simplicity: Built with the familiar Fiery user interface, JobMaster significantly reduces the operator learning curve.
- Easy deployment: JobMaster doesn’t require a separate server, but runs anywhere Command WorkStation does. This makes it easier to maintain and more accessible to all users in the print facility.
When bundled with Fiery SeeQuence Impose—the intuitive document imposition print software that automates prepress tasks—JobMaster integrates all makeready tasks in a single WYSIWYG application.
