EFI releases Fiery FS500 Pro

EFI has brought out the Fiery FS500 Pro platform to improve digital print productivity.

“As the industry begins a recovery from the recent downturn, print businesses across all segments are looking to invest in solutions that enhance their productivity, reduce waste and shorten cycle times,” said John Henze, vice president of sales and marketing, EFI Fiery. “That’s exactly what this brand-new Fiery platform brings, with advancements that take print businesses to new levels of production efficiency, colour accuracy, and profit potential. We are excited to begin seeing our OEM partners roll out this new platform with the next generation of their digital printers and presses.”

Advanced Fiery features speed up administration and production of print jobs, and includes a new print time estimation feature to help better plan and schedule production resources. It also has more tools available for detecting potential errors in files.

External FS500 Pro servers now come standard with Fiery Preflight, which provides basic preflight checks for problems such as missing spot colours or low-resolution images. For more advanced preflight checks, Fiery Preflight Pro verifies file compliance with industry standards and specifications, such as PDF/X, PDF/VT, PDF 2.0, or GWG (Ghent Workgroup). The visual Preflight Pro Report makes it easy to find file errors. Users can produce higher-quality jobs and personalised prints with a native Adobe PDF Print Engine 5.5 workflow, the default interpreter on external Fiery servers and an option on embedded servers. FS500 Pro enables quick and easy onboarding to the EFI IQ suite of cloud applications too.
