Ultimate Releases Trans/IT, Automated TIFF/IT to PS Converter

Press release from the issuing company

Montreal, Canada, February 19th, 2003 – Ultimate Technographics, a leading prepress workflow software developer, today announced the release of Trans/IT an economic workflow utility that simply and quickly converts TIFF/IT P1 files into composite or separated PostScript files for a prepress workflow. Trans/IT provides significant advantages for prepress environments looking at expanding their operations to support TIFF/IT files – and it provides this valuable business advantage for only $1,495.00. Trans/IT converts files in full auto mode on a desktop or workgroup server with hot folders or by manually selecting the file you wish to convert. Trans/IT’s automated output is accessible to unlimited users over a network and provides output to composite or separated PostScript files that are compatible with any PostScript Level II or later RIP. Trans/IT can also be used as a module in a larger automated PS or PDF workflow. With Hot folder automation Trans/IT can be linked to Ultimate Normalizer for fast and simple Normalized PDF, Ultimate Trapeze Artist for PS or PDF trapping and even connected to an automated template driven imposition workflow with Ultimate Impostrip and IMPress. Robert Dumas, Director of Product Management at Ultimate, says:  “TIFF/IT files have always posed a challenge in an industry that is predominantly working with PostScript and PDF workflow solutions. Although TIFF/IT is immensely popular in specific geographic regions, and some industry specific workflows, production files frequently travel to different shops for re-use, and this posed a problem for operations with PS and PDF workflow software”. He continues “Expanding the capability or our trapping and imposition products with Trans/IT will enable our customers to now handle projects they may have turned away in the past – which in turn provides more economic opportunities for our customers – that’s why we’re in business” Trans/IT is available now from Ultimate Technographics and through graphic arts dealers and resellers worldwide. Trans/IT is priced at US $1,495.00 and a 5-day full function demo is available for download at : ftp://ftp.ultimate- tech.com/pub/Download/SOFTWARE_DEMO/Transit Demo.exe About Ultimate Technographics Ultimate Technographics invented digital imposition just over a decade ago with Impostrip.
