EFI has launched its latest Fiery front end for cut-sheet digital production systems. The EFI Fiery FS150 Pro digital front end (DFE) uses EFI’s HyperRIP technology, which uses four processor cores to process print jobs, which EFI claims is up to 55% faster than Fiery-driven presses without HyperRIP.
It has the same features that gained a 100% perfect pass label from VIGC’s PDF RIP Audit. It also boasts a new unique greyscale composite overprint feature that ensures correct monochrome printing of overprints, drop shadows and transparencies.
It includes Fiery ImageViewer, an application that allows users to view full resolution raster data in real time and adjust the final raster output before printing. This now includes the ability to save last-minute colour adjustments so future jobs that require the same type of colour correction can be produced faster.
It should integrate with EFI’s MIS/ERP software, eCommerce/Web-to-Print products and scheduling tools. It uses APPE 3.0, Adobe’s latest PDF-native rendering platform.
The first DFEs based on the Fiery FS150 Pro system platform will be available starting next month. For more information about Fiery DFEs, visit www.efi.com
