Global Vision has joined the Enfocus Crossroads programme as a Technology Partner. The first fruit of this will be the Global Vision BarProof PDF barcode verification module, an off-the-shelf tool that smoothly integrates with the Enfocus Switch workflow automation solution.
Enfocus Switch is a modular and open software solution that integrates various systems together into a customized production workflow. In theory these workflows should be able to process files in less time, with less effort and at less cost regardless of who originally created it or the file format used. A visual flow editor helps users create automated workflows from scratch or import predesigned flows from the Enfocus Crossroads community website.
Global Vision provides automated quality control solutions designed for prepress and printers to verify artwork, barcodes, Braille and text to ensure accuracy of components within packaging artwork. According to Global Vision, BarProof is the industry’s first barcode verification module that automatically locates, decodes & grades barcodes in PDF files to provide detailed reports on barcode quality, including bar width reduction and magnification values.
Global Vision will be releasing future configurators for other applications including ArtProof, the first Mac-based artwork inspection solution, to automate artwork inspection for prepress PDF files including booklets.
