Kodak has released Insite Prepress Portal 9.0 with a simplified user interface, and has also made a number of minor updates to components within the Prinergy Workflow software.
Insite gains a new user interface that should make real-time proofing easier while minimizing errors and removing unexpected costs. Kodak has improved the way that users can navigate through important sections including jobs and pages, allowing users to see a job summary while viewing specific details without leaving the webpage. It’s now possible to customize capability functions in the Preview Preferences, which should make it easier to approve page sets, signatures and individual versions when using Layered PDF Versioning function within the Prinergy workflow. It’s also now possible brand and personalize webpages along with individual customer pages.
In addition, Kodak has also announced a number of minor updates for various modules of its Prinergy Workflow 8.2 on-premise software platform. Thus Kodak has improved the connectivity with its Creo servers, which includes those Konica Minolta devices driven by the IC-314 controller, as well as better support for Ricoh’s Pro C7200 series of digital presses.
Prinergy Device Track complete with Job Ticket Editor gains bi-directional JDF communication with Kodak’s XPO software print console and CTP devices. Kodak has also added Maxtone SX screening for four-colour jobs, which should allow for higher resolution and greater control for packaging jobs.
The Preps imposition software can now be used to edit in template mode, so that templates can be easily duplicated and modified to help users transition from legacy versions of Preps. The Pandora step-and-repeat software with Packaging Layout Automation now offers multi-CAD file support so that items for multiple jobs can be combined on a single sheet layout to make the most of the sheet.
Allan Brown, vice president and general manager of Kodak’s Unified Workflow Solutions, commented: “These new releases show Kodak’s commitment to delivering software solutions that save time and reduce costs while driving superior levels of customer satisfaction. By streamlining the user experience, expanding our digital device compatibility and delivering unprecedented value to the packaging segment, Kodak is pioneering the future of end-to-end Software solutions for industry growth segments.”
