Friday, December 13, 2002
Kehl, Germany – Dalim Software, the leading developer of innovative and professional workflow solutions, and PDF-PostScript workflow provider Ultimate Technographics today announce that the Impostrip software family (including Impostrip Solo and IMPress) can be fully integrated with the DALiM TWiST and DALiM SWiNG flexible workflow automation solutions. This announcement underscores Dalim Software and Ultimate’s commitment to offer advanced tools to the Mac-based prepress and publishing community worldwide. “Impostrip’s unique client-server architecture provides a strong PostScript and native PDF remote imposition tool,” says Stéphane Georges, Software Product Manager at Dalim Software. “TWiST and SWiNG generates low-res page images for imposition manipulation, while maintaining the high-res originals secure on the server ready for OPI replacement on output. As a result, file movement across the network is reduced and production speed maximized. Our customers now have the freedom to choose a non-proprietary imposition solution from an independent supplier to suit their Windows or Mac platform preference.” “Impostrip with Dalim Software’s Hot Folder and Printing Queue-driven applications are a perfect fit”, says Joanne David, VP Marketing at Ultimate Technographics. “We are glad to see DALiM TWiST and DALiM SWiNG’s ultra-flexible workflows now capable of offering Impostrip with an unlimited number of imposition seats to their customers at no extra cost, insuring production growth without overheads.’’ The industry’s most open, flexible and highest productivity digital workflow, DALiM TWiST is an intelligent solution handling a wide range of complex production tasks automatically. Event-driven reactions can be triggered and determined by a variety of options such as file origin, naming conventions, or absence or presence of certain data such as text or images. The DALiM SWiNG is a suite of workflow automation and management modules that allows users to streamline all pre-press and publishing production processes. It features a set of pre-defined workflows that frees up production time, improves schedules, reduces errors, and ensures consistent quality. Ultimate’s popular imposition family covers all publishing needs starting with the top of the line Impostrip for unlimited users with CIP3 and job ganging for large commercial printers, Impostrip Solo client-server for mid-size printers and IMPress for digital printing and Print on-Demand with high-speed color printers and digital presses. All Imposition products from Ultimate use Hot Folder automation.
