June 12, 2003 -- On June 11, 2003 at the Seybold Conference in Amsterdam, Heidelberg announced the launch of series production of the new JDF-based preprint workflow Prinect Printready System. Following extensive field tests and an early production phase, the company has now shipped the initial series configurations to its customers. “With its open workflow systems, Heidelberg is aiming to integrate all processes from prepress to press and finishing in order to make the overall procedure more productive and cost-effective. The Prinect Printready System represents an important step towards achieving this aim and its modular design will be of particular interest also to smaller print shops”, commented Dr. Peter Leu, Head of Product Management Prinect at the Seybold Conference. The new solution is fully modular, in line with the basic principle of Prinect, so that customers can select individual components and add them to the overall system depending on their specific requirements. The Prinect Printready System provides the opportunity to map and automate all the prepress tasks in a freely configurable, digital workflow. Prinergy support continues Heidelberg also announced that service and support for the prepress workflow Prinergy, which was developed in cooperation with Creo, will continue after the expiry of the OEM agreement with Creo in May of this year. However, Heidelberg is also offering very attractive conditions to any Prinergy customer prepared to make the switch to the Prinect Printready System.
