Enfocus Releases Instant PDF 08

Tuesday, September 23, 2008

Press release from the issuing company

September 22, 2008 - Gent, Belgium - Enfocus continues to enhance Instant PDF, bringing unprecedented simplicity and standards compliance to the desktops of designers and the print production workflow alike. In addition to supporting all the latest standards and design applications, including PDF/X-4 and Adobe Acrobat 9, Instant PDF 08 adds more color management options, improved preflighting, and integration with Enfocus PowerSwitch.

"It can be difficult and confusing for designers to create PDF files for print or advertisements that result in predictable output that is both printable and reflects their design intent," says David van Driessche, Director of Enfocus Marketing. "Improperly created PDF files wreak havoc in the production process and can cause unnecessary aggravation and delays for both the buyer and seller of print. With this release of Instant PDF 08, Enfocus has made it even easier and more worry-free for designers to create perfect, printable PDF files and for printers to benefit from reduced cycle time in the production process."

Enfocus Instant PDF 08: improved consistency, accuracy and efficiency

Enfocus Instant PDF 08 makes producing press-ready PDFs easy for creative professionals. Using award-winning Enfocus Certified PDF technology, it is the simplest and most reliable way to create PDFs that comply with print or advertisement vendors' specifications, including PDF/X-1a, PDF/X-3, PDF/X-4 and Ghent PDF Workgroup industry standards. Designers access Instant PDF 08 from within design applications, including the latest versions of QuarkXPress, Adobe Illustrator, Adobe InDesign and Adobe Acrobat. Standard PDF Queues or custom PDF Queues created by the print service provider can be quickly and easily imported into design software to ensure consistent and accurate PDF generation that meets all job specifications.

With Instant PDF 08, print providers will see a significant reduction in customer service and pre-press operator workload because Certified PDF files are always output correctly from the designer's workstation. With Enfocus Certified PDF technology, the files are flagged as ready for output as soon as they arrive in the inbox.

For print service providers who have adopted Enfocus PowerSwitch to automate prepress tasks, Instant PDF 08 now delivers final PDF files directly to a Submit Point in PowerSwitch, making communication between the designer and the printer even more efficient.

"Also new in Instant PDF 08," adds Mr. van Driessche, "are new preflight checks that correct even more problems during PDF creation, including automatic detection of printer marks, setting the page boxes in the generated PDF file accordingly. In addition, we have embedded the open-source Little CMS color management engine to ensure color consistent conversions for both Mac and Windows. These additions align with our goal of making desktop PDF generation faster, easier and more accurate than ever before, removing stress and headaches for both the designer and the printer."
