New Fiery DFE for iGen5

EFI has released a new Fiery digital front end (DFE) for Xerox’s iGen5 press. The Xerox EX-P 5 Print Server was first shown at the Print 17 show back in September and is based on the Fiery FS300 Pro platform, that was also unveiled at Print 17.

EFI’s Fiery FS300 Pro comes with Command Workstation 6.

The FS300 platform has a number of features, such as improved handling of spot colours, including the ability to overprint up to 127 spot colours per page. It allows operators to prioritise spot colour edits on a job basis for customers’ specific colour preferences.

It also includes Fiery Color Profiler Suite 4.9, a profiling solution for calibrating a Fiery-driven iGen 5 press for G7 compliance. 

Ragni Mehta, vice president and general manager of Xerox’s Cut Sheet Business, explained: “This partnership with EFI will allow Xerox to capitalise on the ability of White Dry Ink and other specialty colours to increase the breadth of applications that can be produced on the Xerox iGen 5 Press.”

The Fiery Graphic Arts Package Premium Edition includes Fiery ImageViewer ,which allows users to view the ink separation in the raster file to see exactly where white will print, preventing inadvertent errors and reducing waste. 

As with recent Fiery servers, it uses the HyperRIP technology that considerably enhances the processing speed. It also comes with Fiery Command WorkStation 6, a print job management interface.
