Monday, December 17, 2001
-Remote Operation option enhances workflow and productivity by enabling customers to RIP and queue jobs for multiple printers from a single prepress workstation located away from the print production area Lod, Israel; December 17, 2001 - NUR Macroprinters (Nasdaq: NURM), a leading supplier of wide-format and superwide digital printing systems and consumables for out-of-home advertising, today announced a new software option for its popular NUR Blueboard(TM) superwide digital printing systems. The new Remote Operation software option is designed to streamline workflow and enhance productivity, especially at high volume superwide digital printing sites that operate more than one printer. Users of the NUR Blueboard HiQ and NUR Blueboard HiQ+ models can easily install the new remote operation software on a PC at their own site. The software is used for preparing files for printing (e.g. setting up tiling, sizing graphics, etc.), rasterizing (RIP) them, and then queuing them for output on multiple machines. The "remote" workstation, typically a powerful PC configuration, can be located away from noise and activity in the printing department in an environment more suitable for such tasks. "We are releasing this software option in response to several trends we have noticed at both our NUR Blueboard customer sites and at the sites of other providers of superwide graphics," says Yariv Ninyo, Product Line Manager for NUR Macroprinters. "First, as superwide printing becomes more popular, our customers are being called on to process more complex files that require more set-up, editing and/or RIP time. So they're looking to become more efficient while also handling more work and operating multiple printers at full capacity."
