DynaStrip connects to Hiflex MIS with JDF 1.2 Stripping

Thursday, March 23, 2006

Press release from the issuing company

Quebec, Canada, March 22nd, 2006 – Dynagram, the industry leader in imposition solutions, and Hiflex, a market leading MIS for print and media, announced today upstream connectivity between the DynaStrip solution suite and Hiflex system for the first time! DynaStrip imports JDF files generated by the MIS or estimation software and initiates the creation of imposition layouts. DynaStrip’s JDF import pre-interface extracts JDF 1.2 Stripping parameters found in the file and ensures that all extracted job parameters are isolated from the application or user defaults. The resulting imposition can be outputted in any format, including PDF and JDF. Prepress operators can also validate and complete the missing layout information beforehand, for example, a more precise positioning of the signature, page bleed control, creep adjustment, addition of marks, etc., all settings that are not required for the estimation process but have a great impact on print production and overall quality. Upon a JDF-format output, the imposition information is added to the original JDF file which is then forwarded, along with a PDF marks file, to be executed by Hiflex system. The result: a streamlined, tangible and open collaboration between MIS and prepress, a feature that until recently was a concept rather than a reality. The benefit to users: true means to ensure job integrity at all times. This increased connectivity is also synonym with time saving. No need to create templates, assemblies or pagination. DynaStrip simply processes the JDF file, without any necessary presets. “With this upstream integration, we are one step closer to truly automating the imposition process.’’ says Tracey-Lee Batsford, General Manager of Prepress Solutions at Dynagram.
