Portland, OR—Tuesday, February 11, 2003— Today, Fusion Systems International announced the Sun Solaris release of DigiPageTM, their powerful ROOM workflow solution. This new platform release further extends Fusion System's product line beyond Silicon Graphics Inc. (SGI) IRIX, enhancing Fusion System's position as the world's leading provider of UNIX PostScript interpreters, screening engines, file management and workflow solutions.
DigiPage ROOM Workflow
DigiPage is a ROOM (rendor once, output many) workflow option that generates a complete set of (production) workflow files. DigiPage allows all work to be rendered only once, including: trapped and screened separations, a down sampled, de-screened color composite proofing file generated from the bitmap separations, and a 72 DPI preview file. Because the color composite proofing files are generated directly from the high resolution (bit-map) separation data, the proofs are an exact match to the final printed work. DigiPage’s unique proofing process prevents errors from reaching film, plates and press by making it extremely easy to catch common production file problems.
DigiPage files can be used independently or in conjunction with any OPI solution or imposition application. Because DigiPage is based on industry-standard file formats, it can seamlessly integrate into, and enhance, any existing prepress environment to provide greater workflow efficiency and complete digital integrity between a low-cost Epson or HP ink jet digital proof and the final printed work.
Fusion System's raster management products provide unparalleled performance through scalable implementations and modular workflow accelerator plug-in technologies, developed internally by Fusion Systems International. Fusion Systems’ raster image processors (RIPs) can scale across multiple processors for accelerated performance of compute intensive functions, such as trapping, screening and color management. A single license can be configured to meet production requirements of several imagesetters, platesetters, digital proofers, or any combination of digital imaging devices.
