EFI develops Fiery API

EFI has opened up a new Fiery API (application programming interface) for its range of digital front ends or DFEs. This makes it easier for print service providers to integrate their digital print operations with their existing IT framework to share data and eliminate job-prep process steps.

The Fiery API is free of charge to print service providers for their own use. It’s built on modern web-based technologies such as WebSockets that enable live, bi-directional interaction. It’s based on the REST (Representational State Transfer) architectural style, allowing developers to conduct API commands with simple HTTP methods. So, for example, retrieving job log data from the Fiery DFE requires just a single line of code.

It can link Fiery servers to applications for Windows, Mac, iOS, Android and other platforms using familiar programming languages and development tools. These applications can take data from the Fiery servers, such as number of sheets, media size, media type, and user name. The integrated applications also can control job submissions, job action and print queue management, as well as retrieve live status of the DFE, printer consumables, and processed jobs with raster image previewing.

Users can sign up to license the Fiery API at to http://developer.efi.com.

You can license the articles from Printing and Manufacturing Journal to reproduce in other publications. I generally charge around £150 per article but I’m open to discussing this for each title, particularly for publishers that want to use multiple stories. I can provide high res versions of images for print publications.

I’m used to working with overseas publishers and am registered for VAT with the UK’s HMRC tax authority but obviously won’t charge VAT to companies outside the UK. You can find further details and a licensing form from this page, or just contact me directly here.
