Monday, July 02, 2012

Press release from the issuing company

Xitron, a leading developer of open prepress workflow systems, announced that Jon Zink has joined the Xitron Sales Team as Regional Sales Manager responsible for the eastern United States and eastern Canadian provinces.

Bringing significant prepress software knowledge from previous positions with Kodak, Fujifilm, and Xerox, Jon’s primary responsibility will be to support Xitron’s extensive dealer network through education, training, and sales assistance programs. By helping publicize the wide-ranging prepress software solutions offered by Xitron, Jon’s ultimate goal is to help the individual dealer representatives succeed with their customers.

“Jon possesses a unique combination of technology and sales experience,” stated Mark Eisenschenk, Xitron's President and Chief Executive Officer. “His comprehensive understanding of workflow and color management makes him a welcome addition to our team.”

“Xitron’s cost effective prepress and pressroom product lines are expanding beyond traditional print markets,” stated Zink. “With opportunities in packaging, screen printing, and high-speed digital output, this is a very exciting time to join the organization.” Jon can be contacted at jzink@xitron.com or 920-215-1857.

Among the products that Jon will be responsible for are the Navigator Workflow Server, the foundation for Xitron’s prepress and pressroom workflow products, including the Navigator Direct-to-Film, Navigator Direct-to-Plate, Navigator GPS, Navigator Elite and KeySetter Connect ink key presetting software.

Xitron’s Navigator Workflow helps prepress operators increase productivity, manage workflow, and reduce costs. An intuitive interface allows operators to manage their work from a Windows or Macintosh workstation, while directing output production through one or more Harlequin RIPs.

Inkjet workflows including the Navigator direct-to-film and direct-to-plate workflows driving Epson Stylus Pro 4900, 7700, 7890, 7900, 9700, 9890 and 9900 provide cost effective output capabilities for printers. These workflows are the latest additions to the expanding inkjet-based product offerings from Xitron.

Xitron’s Windows 7 64-bit compatible USB interfaces support Xitron’s full line of workflow products including the Navigator workflow based on Harlequin RIP core technology, Xenith Sierra based on the Adobe PDF Print Engine and Raster Blaster, a TIFF catcher capable of accepting TIFF files from a variety of third-party workflow systems and outputting to any of the hundreds of devices support by Xitron. The new USB interfaces are available for leading CTP manufacturers including Agfa, ECRM, Fuji, Heidelberg and Screen.

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.

Raster Blaster accepts standard 1-bit TIFF files from virtually any prepress workflow. Xitron device interfaces convert the TIFF to the appropriate output format to drive the specific CtP, direct imaging press or imagesetter.
