EFI updates Fiery FS200

EFI has launched the latest versions of its Fiery FS200 Pro digital front end. It includes the Fiery HyperRIP offering, which is powered by EFI’s proprietary ASIC (application specific integrated circuit) with RIPChip technology. EFI claims that it can process print files significantly faster than alternative DFEs. HyperRIP now has a mode optimised for multiple jobs, as well as the previous, single-job mode, boosting processing performance up to 55% compared to the performance without HyperRIP.

The FS200 Pro platform can RIP up to four jobs simultaneously. The new Fiery platform also includes a Rush RIP mode that opens up a fifth RIP to process rush jobs when all four main parallel processors are busy.

It has a new CMYK+ feature set for incorporating expanded-gamut process-colour imaging beyond standard four-color imaging. CMYK+ opens the door to a range of inkjet press technologies that may be capable of incorporating five-, six-, or eight-colour process imaging.

It includes JDF support and will integrate with MIS and web to print systems.

The first DFEs based on the Fiery FS200 Pro platform will be available in Q3.

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.
