Electronics For Imaging, Inc. and RISO have worked to bring RISO’s latest entry to the A3-format inkjet printing market, the ComColor GL, a printer series that also offers users the EFI Fiery Workflow Suite combined with digital front end print server technology. The new Fiery ComColor Express FS2100C server benefits from the processing power of the Fiery NX One platform, and recently launched FS500 Pro software.
“Our goal continues to be to offer accurate, high productivity inkjet printing to our customers, and our partnership with EFI is critical to achieving that goal in transpromo and other document production applications,” said Andre D’Urbano, executive director, RISO Inc. “Our customers’ ability to add color in traditionally monochrome applications, with higher color quality using Fiery technology, helps users increase their margins providing more-valuable work at minimal cost.”
“Transactional and direct marketing print businesses thrive by delivering large volumes of low-cost variable data output,” said John Henze, vice president of sales and marketing, EFI Fiery. “This new, higher-productivity Fiery DFE offers intelligent automation, preflight tools, and integrated color management that help ensure print businesses are able to produce documents correctly the first time, every time, at the lowest cost, and without requiring extensive user training.”
In addition to faster processing speeds that help print operations generate more print in less time, the new Fiery DFE includes a wide array of workflow tools, including pre-installed Fiery Preflight and Fiery JobFlow Base software that automate the production of ready-to-print files.
The new DFE also includes EFI Fiery’s most advanced security features for secure file erase, data encryption and network protection tools. Additional Fiery Workflow Suite features on the ComColor Express FS2100C include:
- Integration with offline slitter/cutter/creaser equipment that save up to 70% in setup time;
- Automatic application of correct job properties using Fiery JobExpert, which chooses the right color and imaging settings for each job;
- Fiery Preflight software for identification of errors such as missing spot colors, low-resolution images and more;
- Adobe PDF Print Engine support for preview and print consistency, even in transparencies and drop shadows, with direct PDF RIPing without conversion to PostScript;
- Fiery FreeForm Create, a variable-data composition tool that removes much of the prepress labor of personalization; and
- Improved productivity with Fiery Essential Driver, a simple, intuitive way to print documents with just a few clicks.
A Fiery Graphic Arts Pro Package available for the ComColor Express FS2100C helps to identify and correct print production problems with features like Fiery ImageViewer for accurate soft proofs, Fiery Preflight Pro to ensure compliance with industry standards, Fiery Spot Pro for spot color management, and Fiery PostFlight to quickly and accurately diagnose problematic elements. Users can also choose to add Fiery JobMaster-Impose PDF-based make-ready software.
