Monday, May 23, 2016
Press release from the issuing company
With the Apogee Suite of workflow management products, Agfa Graphics offers commercial printers a comprehensive solution to control all production output from one user interface. The latest version of this workflow software – Apogee 10 – now brings extra features, significant quality improvements, and performance enhancements.
With a wider range of features, improved performance, and a unique cloud-based alternative, Apogee 10 expands on its basic pilars – innovation, interaction, and optimization.
“One of the most important features of Apogee 10, however, is its rejuvenated Digital Quick Strip (DQS) mechanism”, says Andy Grant, Head of Software, Agfa Graphics. “By processing pages separately before integrating them into a placeholder, Apogee and DQS turn page revision into a swift and simple task. And the same goes for updating the press sheet layout due to last-minute job rescheduling. Thanks to DQS, printers’ throughput is higher and output resources are utilized in the best way possible.”
“Apogee 10 allows printers to set up a versioning job based on spot color input files”, Grant explained. “They can also merge different parts of a versioning job onto one single plate to optimize press efficiency. All Apogee improvements aim to meet the ever-growing automation and performance needs of professional printers.”
“Adobe has had a long and successful relationship with Agfa, who pioneered PDF workflow for print production,” says Mark Lewiecki, Adobe Senior Product Manager. “Agfa continues to lead the industry with software and hardware innovation. Agfa customers are reaping the rewards with Apogee and Asanti workflow solutions, which harness the power of the Adobe PDF Print Engine.”
“With Apogee Cloud, we offer printers the same Apogee products and features, only they are hosted by Agfa’s private and secure cloud”, said Grant. “That is a unique service and it comes with many more advantages. There is no need, for example, to provide any local configuration, software installations or hardware expertise. Printers can just leave that up to our Apogee experts and ICT specialists.”
Apogee 10 and all other software solutions from Agfa Graphics will be demonstrated live at drupa2016 Hall 8 under the software cloud.
