Press release from the issuing company
Copenhagen: Cacidi Systems, one of the world's leading developers of software for the design-driven, automated graphic production, today announces a new product for automatic production with Adobe InDeisgn CS4 Server.
The new release in Cacidi Systems' server-based product line is specially developed for optimal productivity in all of the thousands of Adobe InDesign manufacturing companies worldwide. Manual workload for graphic output in its final formats PDF, PS, EPS, JPG and FLASH plus physical printing-out places a strain upon employees' expensive working time unnecessarily, but this can be eliminated with Cacidi Production Server.
The Cacidi Production Server system consists of a server-backend with advanced functionality, whilst the solution is intuitive and logical in setting up and using. Cacidi's Workflow application allows administrators to configure pre-defined rules for advanced automated graphic workflows in direct integration with Adobe InDesign Server.
The following are amongst the software's top features:
• Adobe InDesign CS4 defined PDF, PS, EPS, JPG and FLASH file-format output.
• Direct rule-based print-to-paper output, pre-flighting with full support of Adobe InDesign CS4's advanced pre-flight options.
• Cacidi Workflow – an industry innovating technology that makes it easier for companies to define precise routines for output and delivery through the assistance of unlimited series of actions in one or more interconnected procedure(s).
Furthermore, server side hot folder drag-and-drop of up to hundreds of InDesign files for further treatment plus the Cacidi Close-and-Process plug-in for the client version of Adobe InDesign CS4. This permits that the graphic designers can easily and effectively deliver InDesign jobs to Cacidi Production Server from one Indesign menu point, and automatically obtain workflow styles, which are defined by the system's back-end.
Cacidi Production Server furthermore allows additional page range definition, prefix/suffix file naming, and output of ongoing log-file with comprehensive messages about possible processing errors.
"Cacidi production Server is a result of natural progress in our server product development strategy. We at Cacidi take pride in that we never follow the stream but, on the other hand, is the company that is setting new standards. With this system we are offering thousands of customers worldwide with a real need for optimisation of graphic working processes, total workflow automation at a completely simple or at a very advanced level, depending on the need. Completely in line with the thought behind our additional server-orientated products Cacidi Enterprise Server and Cacidi LiveEditor", says Richard Andersen, CEO.
"Furthermore, Cacidi Production Server is a natural element for the expansion of the solutions of our many existing web-to-print customers, who have already bought Cacidi Enterpririse Server, and who therefore in a standard product get the possibility to join yet another module with great production effectivity to their online document building solutions", he says.
Cacidi Production Server will be released for Mac OS X Server and Windows Server, and the Cacidi Close and Process plug-in for the corresponding client platforms. Guidline prices are $4,000 (€2,690), but please contact Cacidi Systems for further informations on different setups.
