Esko releases Suite 14

Esko has started shipping its Suite 14 collection, which covers design through to converting. It includes a number of different modules. WebCenter 14 now supports 64-bit and and uses HTML 5 for the Viewer. WebCenter servers can now interact with each other to even better integrate the entire supply chain.

Suite 14 includes a broader and more sustainable integration framework that includes XML and JDF but also standardises the way third-party solutions are integrated with any Esko component, driving end-to-end automation. Connect allows for easy integration with all wide-ranging third-party solutions as MIS, shipping systems, popular web applications such as Google Maps, or other web portal or cloud-based solutions.

In addition, a series of new colour tasks are now integrated into the Automation Engine to automatically convert brand colours to a fixed ink setting using Equinox profiles, reducing the need for spot colors while reducing overall ink usage.

Suite 14 also gives ArtiosCAD users more realistic 3D visualization when folding corrugated and paper board, setting more realistic expectations for clients when presenting designs.

This update of ArtiosCAD also features a number of improvements for die making manufacturers, such as single-click options for filling a line or path with nicks and configurable options for driving various output devices to reduce the time it takes to get a design into production.

Other improvements include support for Adobe’s APPE3 print engine, FlexProof for simpler proofing and a next-generation layout editor. i-cut Layout+ that is easy to use and compatible with both Mac and Windows.

Suite 14 should be available in July with further details from
