OneVision updates workflow software

OneVision has updated its Automation software to v20.1 with a number of minor improvements to aid workflow. 

The Action List within the workflow management system of Workspace Pro X.

Thus the workflow management tool Workspace gains a new Actions view, which shows the progress of each file and the module that’s processing the data at the time. 

Workspace can automatically route and prioritize print jobs based upon various parameters such as delivery date, substrate or colour to help printers meet tight delivery times. It’s possible to set further criteria for automated processing through the Edit Properties module, such as using the Page Format setting to calculate the physical size of the print jobs, which might then trigger nesting if a defined net area is exceeded.

OneVision has also improved on the Generate Bleed function of its prepress software so that cut lines are created both inside and outside of intersecting cut lines. Meanwhile Asura customers that have taken out the service contract can now download a VDP template editor free of charge, which allows using job parameters as well as external data to create variable data files.

The Inksave feature has also been updated so that it can now automatically reduce the maximum value for primary colours, which should be useful in book and transactional printing, though this does depend on the selected ICC profile and the maximum amount of ink applied. 

Meanwhile the Amendo Extension program, which offers automated image optimization, allows users to overlay and merge images. It can automatically recognize Photoshop channels and use them as masks when using the Merge Images function to merge two images, handy when particular areas of an image have to be optimized, or cut out and placed on other backgrounds.
