Thursday, September 05, 2013
Press release from the issuing company
In advance of its release at PRINT 13, Enfocus educates users on all but one of the extensive new features coming in PitStop 12
Ghent, Belgium - Enfocus is in the midst of a multi-media education campaign to prepare users for the next release of its PitStop technology. The campaign is introducing the market to all but one of the new features in PitStop Pro 12 and PitStop Server 12. These significant new features enable the most comprehensive checking, correction, and editing of every element within a PDF file - all from within the familiar PitStop interface.
The education campaign is centered on a series of videos, with one debuting every week of 8 leading up to the release of PitStop 12. Then, on September 8, 2013 at 12 pm CST, Enfocus executives will unveil the final feature at PRINT 13 in Chicago, USA, to coincide with the release of PitStop 12 to the marketplace.
The videos are available at: http://www.enfocus.com/pitstop-pro-12.
Customers behind development of the world's industry standard
PitStop Pro, the industry standard for PDF preflighting and editing, is used by 130,000 users worldwide to correct typographic errors, change color spaces and fix dozens of other PDF problems. As the company looked to improve and expand the functionality of PitStop Pro, it turned to this expansive user base for feedback, conducting customer surveys, "Voice of the Customer" interviews, and reaching out to customers via social media and LinkedIn forums.
Fabian Prudhomme, Vice President of Enfocus, talked about customer involvement in the release of PitStop 12: "PitStop 12 is a result of Enfocus' commitment to developing solutions based directly on customers' needs. As a result, PitStop12 has evolved into a simple but extremely powerful 'pocket knife' of technology that can manipulate everything in a PDF, without opening a new application.
"Our commitment to these customers has continued with this education program. These videos and resources are helping our customers - and the market in general - understand the value PitStop solutions bring in streamlining the production process."
Beta site speaks out
Pictorial Offset of Carlstadt, New Jersey, USA was a beta test site for PitStop 12. A company spokesperson said, "We run a fast-paced print environment; so our shop completely relies on PDF integrity and smooth workflow integration. With features like Smart Preflight, image editing, and gradient editing, there is hardly a PDF that can't be fixed using PitStop Pro 12. Most importantly, having the capabilities to do all these things without kicking the file back to the client and slowing down production is invaluable."
New features in PitStop Pro 12 and PitStop Server 12
PitStop Pro 12 includes new editing tools* that let users edit and correct images and blends without having to leave PitStop Pro and go into an external editor, such as Adobe® Photoshop® or Illustrator®.
The new PitStop Server 12 now uses the industry standard Adobe® transparency flattening engine. This ensures consistency with flattening performed externally in Adobe® Creative Suite® or APPE pre-press workflows.
Also available are new Actions and Action List Functions that include:
On September 8, 2013 at 12 pm CST, Enfocus executives will unveil the latest new component of PitStop at a press conference during PRINT 13 in Chicago, Illinois, USA.
