Kodak has worked with Canon to integrate its Prinergy 8.4 prepress workflow with the PrismaSync print server v7.2 that Canon inherited from its Océ acquisition.
This means that Prinergy Setup can now import the media and substrate library from a Canon press, as well as the device’s properties, so that Prinergy users will be able to define the print parameters for the Canon device as needed and save them for later use. Furthermore, PRINERGY Track records all print jobs on the PrismaSync Print Server, and for queued jobs that were sent from Prinergy, most settings can be changed. Prinergy can also take care of the colour management and imposition
PrismaSync 7.2 supports a range of sheetfed printers including the VarioPrint i-series of inkjet machines as well as the ImagePress C1000VP and C850 colour toner devices and VarioPrint 6000 series monochrome printers.
Todd Bigger, President of Kodak’s Software Division and Vice President of Kodak itself, explained: “Kodak’s goal is to provide customers access to the Prinergy automated production workflow for controlling all their print processes. This connectivity means that Canon production presses can now be efficiently controlled using our industry-leading Prinergy Workflow solution.”
