Electronics For Imaging, Inc. and Konica Minolta Business Solutions U.S.A., Inc announced new EFI Fiery digital front ends (DFEs) for Konica Minolta AccurioPress C7100 Series light production presses.
Compared to their predecessors, the Fiery IC-319 boosts raster image processor (RIP) speed by 40% and the Fiery IC-318L boosts processing speed by an impressive 68%. Print organizations will also be able to take advantage of Fiery HyperRIP performance-enhancing technology (Fiery IC-319 server with eight RIPs, or the Fiery IC-318L server with two RIPs) for uninterrupted print production.
The Fiery IC-319 DFE for the Konica Minolta AccurioPress C7100 is based on the Fiery NX Premium hardware platform and is designed to handle complex, image heavy, or variable data jobs. It includes a complete set of Fiery prepress and makeready solutions to help maximize workflow efficiency, maintain color quality to a set standard, and reduce rework and waste.
“Our customers continue to drive digital printing to new levels of quality and versatility, and with these new EFI Fiery DFEs, we are extending the range of what AccurioPress users can achieve even further,” said Dino Pagliarello, senior vice president, Product Management and Planning, Konica Minolta.
The latest Fiery FS400 Pro software running on the new DFEs provide functionality in the areas of color and imaging, productivity, and workflow automation.
Fiery IC-319 and IC-318L users will also benefit from EFI ColorGuard, a cloud-based color verification solution and winner of the 2019 PRINTING United Alliance Product of the Year Award for software color enhancement. ColorGuard ensures that print systems are operating at their full color quality potential. ColorGuard can drive automated color verification using an optional Konica Minolta IQ-501 Intelligent Quality Optimizer to verify against industry color standards such as G7 or a custom color reference.
“Fiery goes beyond being the fastest DFE by far in the marketplace, and we are pleased to be able to offer Konica Minolta AccurioPress users higher out-of-the-box print quality and more efficient intelligent automation with these new DFEs,” said John Henze, vice president, sales and marketing, EFI Fiery. “Not only will print businesses benefit from enhanced productivity, our solutions will also give users the power to easily get color right every time to make the most of their production printing investments.”
