Xitron announces Graph Expo plans

Press release from the issuing company

Xitron, the prepress industry's leading independent developer and integrator of prepress workflow and pressroom software, announced they will showcase Navigator Elite, Xenith Sierra and KeySetter Connect in Booth 207 during Graph Expo to be held in Chicago, October 3-6. Xitron's prepress and pressroom solutions bring added efficiencies and productivity to printers with the tight integration and seamless operation between the systems in both departments.

Navigator Elite is Xitron's prepress workflow based on the Navigator Workflow Server and the Harlequin RIP. Xitron's Navigator Elite helps prepress operators increase productivity, manage workflow and reduce costs. The client interface allows multiple operators to manage their work from a Windows or Macintosh workstation, while directing output production through one or more Harlequin RIPs.

Xenith Sierra is the premier workflow offering in Xitron's extensive line of RIP and workflow solutions. Based on JDF and the Adobe PDF Print Engine technology, Xenith Sierra is an excellent solution for larger printers who need comprehensive control over every job. Automating prepress tasks with cutting-edge technology, Xenith Sierra provides the tools and power to substantially increase throughput, improve quality, reduce errors, and maximize performance.

Extremely easy to use, all Xitron prepress workflow solutions support more than 250 output devices from various manufacturers including proofers, imagesetters, platesetters, digital presses, and production copiers.

KeySetter is a pressroom workflow solution for digital ink key presetting designed to bring a printer's prepress and pressroom together. The new solution provides automated ink key presetting to a host of press consoles from leading industry manufacturers such as Adast, Heidelberg, Komori, Mitsubishi, Sakurai and Shinohara.
Xitron's KeySetter family of pressroom workflow solutions includes three different options:
- KeySetter Light – produces a simple chart of the ink key settings which can be printed to a printer or saved as a PDF file.
- KeySetter Pro – produces a specific file format for presses that require proprietary format ink key setting data.
- KeySetter Connect – provides the greatest level of automation in the pressroom with a direct connection to the  press console

Xitron offers prepress and pressroom workflow solutions through its network of OEMs, distributors, dealers, and system integrators worldwide.
