Press release from the issuing company

Cheltenham, Gloucestershire – VGI Europe, the sales branch of Xitron serving Europe, Africa, Middle East and India, announced a promotion offering a free inkjet plug-in for Epson or Canon proofers with the purchase of any Xitron Navigator Elite Harlequin RIP workflow.

Navigator Elite Workflow is the premier workflow solution in the widely acclaimed Navigator GPS family of Harlequin RIP workflow solutions. Navigator Elite Workflow includes extensive user-requested capabilities including:

- User controllable job management and ticketing capabilities

"The Navigator Workflow Server software is the foundation of Xitron's prepress automation modules for Harlequin RIPs," stated Eric Nelsen, VGI Europe Business Unit Manager. "The addition of a Xitron Epson or Canon proofing plug-in extends the capabilities of the workflow making it the ideal solution for both proofing and final output."

Xitron's Navigator Workflow Server software helps prepress operators increase productivity, manage workflow and reduce costs. The client interface allows multiple operators to manage their work from a Windows or Macintosh workstation, while directing output production through one or more Harlequin RIPs. Optional workflow modules such as with integrated PDF creation and preflighting, ink remapping; and automated imposition with Dynagram's inpO2, further increase the capabilities of the system. ROOM proofing extends the functionality further, by supporting output on devices from Canon, Epson and other popular proofers. The Navigator Workflow Server also offers ink key presetting capabilities with KeySetter, a series of pressroom workflow solutions to connect the prepress department and pressroom together.

The Navigator Workflow Server is capable of supporting up to five Navigator or other Harlequin RIPs and ten simultaneous users or clients. In the pressroom, the Navigator Workflow Server can control one or more direct press console connections through Xitron's KeySetter Connect digital ink key presetting application.

Xitron inkjet plug-ins being offered in this promotion support a wide array of proofing printers including the Epson StylusPro 4880, StylusPro 7880, StylusPro 9880, StylusPro 7900, StylusPro 9900 as well as the Canon imageProGraf iPF 5100, imageProGraf iPF 6100, imageProGraf iPF 6200, imageProGraf iPF 8100, imageProGraf iPF 9100, imageProGraf iPF 6300, imageProGraf iPF 6350, and imageProGraf iPF 8300.
