Agfa Graphics launches Asanti 3.0 workflow software

Agfa has introduced Asanti 3.0, the latest version of its automated production hub and workflow tool for sign and display printers. It allows for integration with third-party print equipment, MIS solutions and with software like PrintSphere and StoreFront.

“It really is a complete production hub that streamlines the entire workflow from beginning to end,” said Erik Peeters, marketing manager workflow solutions, Agfa Graphics.

Asanti 3.0 encompasses IntelliTune, which automatically analyses and improves image quality by optimising skin tones, for example, or by eliminating noise or staircasing and blurriness. The software upgrade also boasts features such QuickProof, and has a new user interface for tiling huge jobs. In addition, Asanti’s dedicated production dashboard displays all print jobs, the number of prints, status data of multiple engines, ink levels, elapsed time and more - all in one overview.

New to Asanti Color Management is an advanced mode that allows printers to use a wizard for managing colours and shortening throughput time, and it features new white printing options. Finally Asanti 3.0 allows for overruling special spot colours (e.g. brand colors) by dedicated colour alternatives.
