Most Advanced EFI Fiery Technology Powers
 Xerox iGen4 PressEFI has  announced that its next generation Fiery platform is now driving Xerox Corporation's iGen4 press. The new Fiery and iGen combination delivers advanced image and colour quality, industry leading workflow tools, and exceptional productivity, ensuring that print providers produce impressive results every time.
 
The EX Print Server for the iGen4 follows the recent successful launch of Fiery technology powering the Xerox Color 800/1000 Presses. The EX Print Server is also based on the new Fiery System 9 R2 platform, boasting a 35 percent increase in RIP speed over the previous generation. The EX Print Server together with the iGen4 Press is one of the most productive and highest quality cut sheet digital colour solutions in the printing industry, creating offset- and photo quality images with exceptional colour from the first print to the last.
 
"Our latest Fiery technology was designed with today's demanding print provider requirements in mind, and we worked closely with Xerox to exceed customers' expectations," said John Henze, vice president of Fiery marketing, EFI. "Driving the blazing fast iGen4 at engine speed, Fiery servers deliver quick document turnaround, amazing colour every time, and automated, intuitive workflows to help customers realise increased productivity, profits and competitiveness."
 
Fiery servers maximise the engine's colour gamut, delivering the most vivid and vibrant colours. The new Fiery Image Enhance feature improves the output quality of digital images by applying automatic corrections to optimise each image individually. Its automated workflow saves prepress time by eliminating lengthy image editing and file manipulation tasks yet ensuring images look their best.
 
Included in the solution is the newest version of Fiery Color Profiler Suite, which gives users the ability to control colour quality at every stage of the printing workflow. The integration of profile making with the iGen4 presses and Fiery Command WorkStation 5 reduces time needed to optimise colour quality while decreasing the possibility for errors, and provides the ability for colour matching of multiple engines in a production environment.
 
Fiery System 9 R2 fully supports Adobe PDF Print Engine 2 (APPE), giving users another choice for end-to-end PDF workflows in addition to the conventional PostScript interpreter. APPE enables integrated PDF workflows for high end graphics content and variable data printing, ensuring reliability and delivering expected results every time.
