Kodak updates Prinergy prepress workflow

Kodak has released Prinergy 7, the latest update to its proven prepress workflow. It’s gained more automation to limit human error, improve time to press, and enable faster and more informed decisions.

It extends the centralized control to now include digital presses and computer-to-plate devices from Kodak and third-party developers. This includes control over job ticketing parameters both manually and through Kodak’s rules-based automation of multiple devices while monitoring and reporting the status of each alongside CtP devices and proofers.

New features include Preflight+, which allows for the integration of Callas preflight profiles. Kodak has also improved its support for layered PDFs, with improved error detection and better control over multiple layers of files making versioned printing easier.

Prinergy uses Adobe’s PDF Print Engine, though strangely this version seems to use APPE 2.6 rather than the current v3. Kodak has said that the next release will use a 3.x version of the APPE.
