Hainburg, Germany (April 26, 2004) -- In response to the increased use of PDF as a print job submission format, CGS Publishing Technologies International has re-introduced its full-featured page editing environment as a professional tool for printers and prepress operators. ORIS PDF Tuner can open any PDF or PostScript file, allowing the user full control over all aspects of a page, including the ability to fix a broad range of prepress errors. Files are then output to one of many available file formats, compatible with multiple RIPs and output systems – regardless of version.
“ORIS has always had the industry’s most robust set of page editing tools,” said CGS spokesman John Parsons. “By positioning the product as we have, we are giving printers the perfect means of coping with poorly-created digital files. They no longer have to waste time and money trying to get a job to RIP, or turn out the way it was intended. ORIS PDF Tuner simply makes it happen.”
“The consensus on PDF as a prepress standard is clear, but even PDF and PDF/X cannot guarantee that a job will output correctly,” said Trevor Haworth, CGS’ head of sales and marketing. “Human error alone costs printers millions of dollars in billing disputes and reprint charges, especially in time-critical environments like advertising for daily and weekly publications. ORIS PDF Tuner is by far the most powerful application for fixing common mistakes in customer-generated files.”
ORIS PDF Tuner, formerly known as ORIS Page, can control every element of a page, including text editing, font control, overprinting, color management and more. Output formats include PostScript, DCS, PDF, PDF/X and (optionally) Scitex and TIFF/IT.
