Boca Raton, FL, February 28, 2008 - Pitney Bowes Emtex Software, an industry leading provider of enterprise output management solutions, announces the release of Virtual Intelligent Presentation (VIP) and Virtual Document Enhance (VDE) Version 8.7 software allowing print operations to fully maximize their mailstream document production infrastructure. VIP / VDE Version 8.7 is designed to support the sophisticated workflow capabilities of Transactional, Graphic Arts, and POD environments.
With the increasing trend of migrating from monochrome to digital color printing technologies, VIP / VDE Version 8.7 includes comprehensive support for ICC Profiles for full color IPDS and enhancements for PDF workflows, including compliance with PDF 1.7 to support the industry's projected growth in Production TransPromo volumes. Also inherent in this release is the support for the new USPS Intelligent Mail Barcode (IMB) mandate, including dynamic IMB generation, enabling print and mail operations to get a head start on compliance in anticipation of the 2009 USPS deadline.
"Emtex output management solutions continue to expand to support virtually any application to any print device or to digital format. Our transactional customers want to offer value added capabilities like TransPromo, color, and PDF workflow support, while an increasing number of Graphics Arts and POD environments are seeking printer vendor independent output management solutions. With this latest version, we are giving our customers the capabilities to pursue these opportunities," said Ken Renko, Product Marketing Manager, Emtex Software. "The release of VIP / VDE Version 8.7 demonstrates Emtex leadership in continuously developing solutions that link print and mail and will continue to expand our capabilities to drive application and device compatibility, including monochrome and color in both continuous feed and cut sheet."
