Press release from the issuing company
Gent, Belgium – Enfocus announces it will be exhibiting a full range of new and existing solutions at Ipex 2010, scheduled for 18 to 25 May in Birmingham, UK. Enfocus will be located in Hall 12, Stand C150.
"Ipex is an important show for the European graphic arts community," comments Fabian Prudhomme, Vice President of Enfocus, "and a perfect venue for major product announcements. The Enfocus presence will not disappoint show attendees. Visitors to our stand will have the opportunity to see the latest updates to our popular PitStop and Switch product lines as well as see first-hand our brand-new product that will debut at the show."
The mission of Enfocus has historically been to find ways to connect islands of automation to streamline production and increase productivity, largely focused on the printer and publisher side of the equation. "At Ipex," says Prudhomme, "you will see us expand our focus into the creative community with solutions that will safeguard quality throughout the entire production chain." To this end, Enfocus will be debuting PitStop Connect at Ipex, a tool that enables printers to create Connectors (small desktop tools that require no application installation) containing specific PDF specifications for preflight, which can be branded and unlimited distributed to designer/creative professional customers.
Prudhomme explains that in 2010, Enfocus has a strong growth strategy in place, remaining committed to helping all stakeholders in the graphic arts community to work smarter, not harder, by bringing to market tools and solutions that reduce costs, eliminate errors and save time. "We're here to stay," he says, "and we will continue to play a leading role in PDF, preflighting, and automation for both printers and creative professionals. The primary focus of our tools is to make our customers more competitive by automating their workflow and freeing more time for them to concentrate on their customers as well as be more creative."
To support these efforts, Enfocus is investing in extended R&D facilities with new developers dedicated to the Enfocus mission in parent company EskoArtwork's facility. "This will enable us to bring our products to market faster," adds Prudhomme, "offering our users even more benefits than they already gain from current Enfocus product families such as PitStop and Switch. These are exciting times, and we see our Ipex exhibition as an opportunity to demonstrate the results of our efforts to attendees interested in removing time and cost from the print production process."
Automate, Control and Protect:
Connecting designers, printers and publishers:
Ensure Quality Control:
PitStop Server 09: preflighting and auto-correction tool for high-volume and unattended PDF workflows. Built on the industry-standard Enfocus preflight engine, it checks all aspects of PDF files and detects missing or corrupt fonts, incorrect colors, objects without bleed and much more. PitStop Server 09 fixes those common problems by taking such actions as adjusting the colors of PDF files for a particular output device, and adding stamps, watermarks or background templates. Even more functionality can be unleashed by using Action List support. A true server application, PitStop Server 09 supports watched folders but can also be run using its command-line interface for closer integration.
PitStop Extreme 08: stand-alone high-efficiency PDF editor built from the ground up to allow quick checking and correcting of the even most complex PDF files. Every function in PitStop Extreme's expansive toolkit is targeted for industry professionals working to tight deadlines and need to change text, edit or swap an image, alter page boxes, add or convert separations, or just move and resize elements on the page. PitStop Extreme handles this within a clear, user-friendly interface. PitStop Extreme also incorporates Enfocus' best-in-class preflighting engine and Certified PDF technology to prevent editing errors and safeguard the file.
The initial release of Switch 09 includes the following additional configurators:
