Enfocus Instant PDF now bundled with Celebrant Extreme system

Press release from the issuing company

Ghent, Belgium - 21 January 2004 - Enfocus Software, the industry leader in PDF-related software tools, today announced the full incorporation of Enfocus Certified PDF technology in Fujifilm's Celebrant Extreme Version 5.3. By embracing the Enfocus Certified PDF technology, Celebrant Extreme users can efficiently and automatically track changes and preflight status of PDF documents with the highest degree of predictability and reliability. As part of the agreement, Enfocus Instant PDF will also be bundled with the Celebrant Extreme system. Celebrant Extreme is a powerful PDF- workflow system that automates production processes that create and impose print-optimized PDF files for output to proof, film and plate. For more than two years Fujifilm has been bundling Enfocus PitStop as a plug-in and Enfocus preflight technology was integrated through PitStop Library. The newly introduced 5.3 version of Celebrant Extreme integrates Certified PDF technology and supports action lists within the Celebrant workflow itself. Certified PDF is the core technology of Enfocus Software products, providing complete control over PDF files. Equipped with the Smart Profile Comparison feature, Certified PDF files are verified against a PDF Profile with either a different name but identical checks, or with settings that are less strict than the profile used to certify the file. The new version of Celebrant Extreme integrates the PitStop Library, incorporating Certified PDF technology, PitStop Professional, and Instant PDF - allowing flawless creation of printready PDF files. John Davies, Software Business Manager at Fujifilm Electronic Imaging Ltd. is extremely pleased with the new features that are now available in Celebrant Extreme: "Thanks to the newly incorporated Certified PDF technology, we offer Celebrant Extreme users a fast track into the prepress production environment. Using Enfocus Instant PDF, printready PDF files are easily created. When files arrive at the workflow, Enfocus PitStop Library conducts the preflighting along with Fujifilm colour management tools. Running the Enfocus Certified Check to validate and deliver a certified file, we can bypass an entire series of processing stages. It's much easier and quicker than undergoing a full preflight process. The validation of the Certified PDF file is now integrated within a prepress workflow." "Celebrant Extreme 5.3 offers users the most flexibility in format options without compromising features. We have included the full range of Enfocus solutions to offer Celebrant users the opportunity to streamline the production of files. Enfocus has proven to be a true leader in its niche. Certified PDF technology and PitStop Professional are value-added tools that help our Celebrant Extreme workflow users significantly streamline their workflows. We are excited to offer this integration to our customers."
