Venlo, The Netherlands ? Océ, an international leader in digital document management and delivery, today announced the latest improvements to its solution for soft proofing in highly-productive digital print environments. In today's highly flexible and cost-sensitive printing environments, it is essential to have the appropriate application ready in next to no time.
Soft proofing the answer to complexity and cost
"With the increasing demand for full color in almost every kind of application, from statements to complex mailings and brochures, the applications become more complex," said Crit Driessen, Vice President, Marketing and Strategy, Océ Production Printing. "As a consequence, the production equipment becomes more expensive and quality demands increase. These challenges call for one essential part of the workflow – soft proofing."
Océ TrueProof reduces costly reprints and production downtime
Soft proofing ensures the application works on the chosen printer. Application designers fit their applications into a pre-printed form and Prepress specialists safeguard that a complex imposing scheme has the correct recto/verso page registration. Otherwise, costly reprints or downtime of production equipment results. Océ TrueProof provides a solution to overcome these challenges.
