EFI Delivers Up To 2X Faster Processing Speed for Superwide-Format Printers with Latest Fiery Release
LAS VEGAS, April 25, 2019 – At this year’s ISA International Sign Expo, Electronics For Imaging, Inc. (Nasdaq:EFII) is premiering new versions of its EFI™ Fiery® digital front ends (DFEs) for superwide-format printers. The newest-version Fiery proServer Premium with powerful GPU hardware acceleration combined with the latest Fiery DFE software, together deliver up to 2X faster performance on EFI superwide-format printers. Plus, this software update supports more than 70 new third-party printers and delivers additional productivity, color management, usability, and integration enhancements.
Fiery power to print even more than before
Thanks to the unique GPU hardware acceleration implementation and the tailored hardware configuration of the new Fiery proServer Premium platform, customers can do more work per shift, and achieve continuous print production — even at their fastest print speeds — to truly maximize their printer investments. This latest offering can process single jobs at double the speed compared to previous Fiery proServers, making it the fastest option available for EFI superwide print producers.
“We continue to enhance Fiery DFE performance to enable our customers to be more productive, get the most out of their chosen printer, and help increase their competitiveness with higher-quality output and better color management,” said John Henze, vice president of sales and marketing, EFI Fiery. “Plus, our latest Fiery Command WorkStation® user interface makes it even easier for customers to take advantage of Fiery DFEs’ powerful features across their entire cutsheet and large-format production platforms.”
New features for better quality, management and integration
Users can now also benefit from a host of new capabilities in EFI’s latest Fiery superwide-format printing software update, which features:
- Enhanced control over tile positioning for optimal substrate consumption, with the ability to enable rotation, positioning, and alignment of split tiles for maximum flexibility
- Improved finishing integration capabilities, including cutting barcodes for Colex cutters
- A new rendering intent for dynamic gamut mapping that produces superior color results automatically.
The new Fiery solutions for superwide-format printing also deliver better data capabilities, communicating advanced device information from EFI printers including ink type, dot size, print mode and halftoning. Customers can further streamline their production workflows by directly importing that data into upcoming versions of the EFI Midmarket Print Suite ERP workflow and EFI MarketDirect StoreFront web-to-print/eCommerce software.
Print professionals can also benefit from using the latest-version EFI Fiery Command WorkStation software to access all Fiery Driven™ printers from a single, user-friendly interface. The updated Fiery Command WorkStation is a native 64-bit application and features HiDPI monitor support, as well as support for Konica Minolta® FD-9 and Barbieri Spectro LFB qb spectrophotometers.
The newly launched Fiery products for superwide-format printing are commercially available now on a worldwide basis. For more information about advanced inkjet display graphics printing using EFI products, visit www.efi.com.
