Zevrix Solutions announces the public beta release of Output Factory Server, a new solution to automate printing, exporting and post-processing from Adobe InDesign. Developed originally for a major magazine publisher in the United States to free up their operator computers from outputting InDesign files, the software automates InDesign workflow by processing files from watched hot folders. The public beta is available for free download and Zevrix offers 25% discount to qualified beta testers who provide valuable feedback.
Output Factory Server saves companies countless hours that are lost each year because operators have to wait for InDesign to print and export files. With Output Factory Server, production artists, prepress operators and designers simply copy files to hotfolders that reside on the network. The program automatically outputs the files from its dedicated station using hot folder settings, and will auto-activate document fonts as well. Operator workstations will never again be tied up by the output process.
Output Factory Server offers the following key features:
-Process InDesign files automatically from watched hot folders -Support printing, PDF, PostScript, EPS, JPEG, Flash, EPUB and other formats -Export InDesign files as single pages -Layer versioning: output specific layers and their combinations -Update modified links automatically -Variable output file names -Preflight files before output -Automatic e-mail notifications of process stages and errors -Easy to install and set up
Output Factory Server also allows for a single set of output settings for an entire workgroup, solving problems caused by inconsistent settings across workstations and dramatically simplifying support tasks.
