Canon Production Printing has partnered with pre-press software specialist OneVision to provide improved operational efficiencies for PSPs using the Colorado roll-to-roll and Arizona flatbed printers.
Michele Tuscano, vice president large format graphics, Canon EMEA, said: “Our large-format printers are getting faster, so customers need a workflow solution to keep up with these increased speeds without compromising on quality. OneVision’s Wide Format Automation Suite provides the solution. Customers can now automate production to run their operations more efficiently, grow their print volumes with confidence and increase profits. Combined with our Direct Sales operations, OneVision represents a new business opportunity for our partner channel as well.”
German large-format PSPs posterXXL and Siepro KG are already working with the system and report that prepress time has decreased and that print-ready files have minimised human error and speeded up turnaround times.
The OneVision software automatically picks up job data, creates print files and checks them against 130 different error criteria, automatically correcting errors identified. Colour management is also optimised.
Automated nesting and data normalisation remove the complexity of handling files, speeding up Rip and print time. The software also automatically generates cut line PDFs for finishing efficiency.
