Xenith Sierra is the premier workflow offering in Xitron's line of RIP and workflow solutions. Based on JDF and the Adobe PDF Print Engine technology, Xenith Sierra is an excellent solution for larger printers who need comprehensive control over every job, while automating prepress tasks, Xenith Sierra provides the tools and power to substantially increase throughput, improve quality, reduce errors, and maximize performance. Xenith Sierra supports more than 250 output devices from various manufacturers including proofers, imagesetters, platesetters, digital presses, and production copiers.
