EFI has announced the new version 6.6 of EFI Fiery Command WorkStation. It delivers a host of productivity and quality enhancements.
“Since the early 1990s, and across millions of installations, EFI Fiery solutions have improved digital print production through both increased productivity and exceptional color quality,” said John Henze, vice president, sales and marketing, EFI Fiery. “With this EFI Fiery Command WorkStation release, we continue to deliver on that promise in a big way, from job creation through finishing.”
A key enhancement to Fiery Command WorkStation in this release is access to EFI IQ, a suite of standard and optional cloud applications that connect people, processes, and print devices. Creating an EFI IQ account is now faster and can be done directly from Fiery Command WorkStation for instant access to production analytics, notification features and more.
Early adopters, including the U.K.-based design and print agency Page Visions, are benefitting from the latest releases and ongoing advancements that Fiery Command WorkStation brings to businesses.
“The latest features delivered in Fiery Command WorkStation make it more than just a pre-press and press operators’ tool,” said Tom Griffiths, Page Visions’ CEO. “Features such as Auto Reconnect, and the ability to manage our Fiery XF servers too means all Fiery Driven printers in the business are always available and can be viewed by all production staff.
“The new Advanced Search with version 6.6 means we are able to get very granular with our job filtering and combine parameters such as stock to be used, product type, scheduled start time, customer, and more, creating production efficiencies. The ability to save these searches means operators share the same filters which delivers operational consistency. Plus, the fact that Fiery Command WorkStation’s stability is rock solid is also massive for us.”
In addition to its new cloud capabilities with EFI IQ for data analysis and metrics, key enhancements in this latest release include:
- More advanced job search capabilities for finding jobs based on multiple search criteria
- A new tool – Raster Curve Editor – that enables operators to perform late-stage color edits to jobs directly from the job properties screen
- Easier editing of spot colors in Fiery Spot Pro while working within other Fiery Command WorkStation applications
- Support for the EFI ES-3000 color measurement Instrument, supporting single-scan measurements in M1 and M2 modes with faster and more accurate readings.
Also coming at the end of February is a new feature in EFI Fiery Impose software – a higher-level integration for the Duplo D-618 automatic finishing device.
