Electronics For Imaging, Inc. and Canon U.S.A., Inc. announced a new EFI Fiery digital front end, the imagePRESS Server D3000, for the new Canon imagePRESS V1000 printer.
“Through our continuing partnership with EFI, we are giving imagePRESS V1000 users a faster and easier digital workflow solution for producing direct mail, business cards, booklets, posters and other creative marketing collateral,” said Shinichi “Sam” Yoshida, executive vice president and general manager of Canon U.S.A., Inc. “In today’s tight labor market, using Fiery technology with the Canon imagePRESS V1000 press can quickly achieve and maintain excellent output quality even with less-experienced operators.”
This Fiery DFE for the Canon imagePRESS V1000 is the first to incorporate Express Media Color Manager and Auto Recal, intuitive set-and-forget automation tools that allow operators with little color management knowledge to produce accurate and consistent color at all times. Creating a custom profile and calibration set for new media requires no operator decision making. Plus, the DFE automatically executes recalibration schedules to maintain color consistency. These features are currently unique to specific Canon imagePRESS engines.
“In today’s fast-paced business environment, print service providers and in-plant operators are faced with increasing demands for shorter runs and competitive pricing,” said John Henze, vice president of sales and marketing, EFI Fiery. “This new, higher-productivity DFE – featuring Fiery FS500 Pro system software and our most-advanced workflow tools – offers intelligent automation, preflight, and automated color management capabilities that help ensure that users produce documents correctly the first time, every time, at the lowest cost.”
