XMPie And Xerox Introduce Enhanced Software Integration Between Personaleffect 2.5 And Freeflow Collection
Press release from the issuing company
CHICAGO – PRINT'05 - SEPTEMBER 9, 2005 - XMPie and Xerox Corporation announced they will expand the integration between XMPie PersonalEffect 2.5 and the Xerox FreeFlow Digital Workflow Collection. The enhancements, unveiled today at PRINT '05, provide XMPie customers a streamlined production workflow of variable digital print projects and automated access to prepress and printing management options offered by Xerox FreeFlow production tools.
XMPie software products are featured in the Personalizing for Profit and Agency and Design Services zones in the Xerox booth #1228.
Key enhancements to the Xerox FreeFlow integration include:
1. Broad VI Container support: PersonalEffect 2.5 now supports FreeFlow VI Containers for PPML, PS, PDF, and VIPP print formats, automatically packaging VI streams with all resources (such as images and files) for an efficient, streamlined production.
2. JDF generation: XMPie customers can now leverage JDF compliant FreeFlow components. From within PersonalEffect´s production dashboard (uProduce) XMPie users may now specify JDF production parameters, which will be submitted as a JDF ticket accompanying the print job. These parameters may include, for example, customer information for billing and tracking purposes, finishing information, and file URIs.
3. Direct VDP job submission to Process Manager, Output Manager, and Print Manager: XMPie users can now submit optimized postscript or PDF jobs directly from uProduce to the FreeFlow core management products. This unique integration provides valuable simplification in the workflow management of the print shop, and improves the printer's overall workflow control. For the first time, customers of XMPie and Xerox have an integrated workflow for VDP, from document creation to final production.
4. FreeFlow Application Launching: Personal Effect 2.5 integration enhancements include the ability to launch FreeFlow Print Manager and FreeFlow Output Manager client software directly from within XMPie's production dashboard (uProduce). This unique enhancement provides XMPie users immediate access to all supported digital printers and productions systems from a single XMPie interface and a more effective way to manage their digital print process by leveraging a unified interface.
XMPie continues to expand its support of the FreeFlow Suite, streamlining the creative to production workflow, and allowing Xerox customers to expand their business faster by quickly bringing in more variable jobs into efficient, integrated production.
