Dynagram releases DynaStrip 5.3

Press release from the issuing company

Quebec, Canada, November 19, 2008 – Dynagram, the industry leader in imposition solutions, announces the release of a new version of DynaStrip, its acclaimed suite of sophisticated imposition software. DynaStrip 5.3, introduced at Graph Expo, now offers better user experience on it’s unique Light-Table interface, new variables for output file names and closer integration with workflow systems.

Enhanced User Experience

DynaStrip 5.3 will significantly enhance user experience when working on the virtual light table. These enhancements aim at more efficiency by reducing the number of clicks needed for the layout creation. These changes include the addition of an Undo function for all actions on the light table such as Add, Edit, Remove, Rotate, etc., and for all object modes.

New Variables for Output File Names

New variables for the customization of output file names have been added to the existing set, for a total of 14 variables. These variables allow for a wide range of system integrations and automated workflows, especially those using DynaStrip Automation edition.

Closer Integration with Workflow Systems

- Agfa Apogee Prepress: DynaStrip 5.3 also includes enhanced support for the creation of imposition templates for Agfa’s Apogee Prepress. Changes include the ability to crop and repeat imported images for marks, and the ability to edit each signature identification before exporting the template. The marks included in the templates are also tagged to be layered on top of the imposition.

- Rampage Systems: Also new in version 5.3 is the addition of custom JDF tags to integrate with Rampage’s Deimpose and AutoGuides features. Operators outputting JDF files to a Rampage workflow can use a new “Rampage“ target from the JDF Option dialog to ensure closer connectivity.

- EskoArtwork Odystar: DynaStrip JT-Flow module (available in DynaStrip Flow edition only) now offers the support for Cut & Stack and Come & Go pagination algorithms in the same automated workflow environment. The two additional settings for Cut & Stack and Come & Go will be available in the imposition gateway of EskoArtwork’s Odystar starting with v.4.0+.

Other changes and fixes have been added to this release. For a complete list of new items in DynaStrip 5.3, please visit the Documentation section of Dynagram website at www.dynagram.com/downloads.
