SANTA ANA, California -- September 29, 2003 -- Markzware, the leading developer of quality assurance applications for the graphic arts and printing industries, is pleased to announce the immediate and latest release of its award-winning FlightCheck Professional, version 5, now with Apple Macintosh OS X support.
FlightCheck Professional is the essential quality control tool for any and all participants in the print and multimedia manufacturing workflow, from creative designers to manufacturing professionals and organizations. As Markzware's flagship application, FlightCheck Professional sets the standard for preflighting and has saved the printing industry millions of dollars since it was first introduced to the market more than a decade ago.
Using a simple drag-and-drop interface, FlightCheck Professional scans a wide variety of file types, including InDesign, QuarkXPress, Portable Document Formats (PDF), PageMaker, Multi-Ad Creator, Illustrator, Photoshop, FreeHand, CorelDRAW and many more. FlightCheck inspects a document using hundreds of available checks. It warns the operator about any potential problems that may reside in a digital file, including font and graphic incompatibilities. This application verifies critical file elements, such as color space and resolution, assuring validity. After verification, FlightCheck Professional generates a detailed report, indicating whether the file has passed or failed the preflight tests and spells out specific problems that must be addressed to ensure that the file will travel onto the next stage of production without error or delay.
