EFI has launched Fiery Central, a modular PDF-based production workflow solution. Utilizing the company’s Fiery digital-print server technology, Fiery Central is designed to increase job volume, decrease turnaround times, and maximize equipment investment. Fiery Central comes in three modular components: Fiery Central Focus, Fiery Central Flow, and Fiery Central Balance.
* Fiery Central Focus, the base module, includes Fiery applications such as the EFI Command WorkStation (CWS) interface, EFI Hot Folders to automate the job set-up process and reduce errors, and EFI Driver to simplify the process of setting up, submitting, and monitoring print jobs.
* Fiery Central Flow offers advanced digital-prepress capabilities in a simple, icon-based solution and features a Visual Workflow to provide job progress at-a-glance. Fiery Central Flow incorporates file conversion, preflight, spot-color management, approval, routing, and proofing processes into customizable workflows that can be edited and managed by users to optimize resources and increase production. It automates manual tasks and provides print service providers with greater consistency and reliability.
* Fiery Central Balance combines multiple devices into a “printer group” for optimized asset utilization. For complex documents, it can route jobs to one or more devices within the printer group for load balancing and maximum speed. Jobs can be split by volume, color/black-and-white, and deployed to the best available engine (or combination of engines).
Several additional options are offered across the three modules. The Compose feature, for instance, allows users to visually assign and communicate page-level attributes and tabs to any printer; the Impose feature allows WYSIWYG display for nearly any imposition scheme; and EFI Scan creates templates for simple, scalable workflows. Additional engines can be added individually to accommodate changing production requirements.
