EFI and Intec Printing Solutions Limited have announced a new partnership with the launch of EFI Fiery digital front end for Intec printers. Based on the newly launched Fiery XF Version 5, the Fiery system will be optionally bundled with the Intec range of digital color printers, extending the already popular range of Intec print systems to offer users new and improved workflow capabilities with color and quality enhancements.
"The combination of the Fiery digital front end and color management workflow and Intec’s range of digital color printing solutions ensures graphic arts professionals and print companies receive a unique print solution offering razor sharp imaging and exact color through a fully customizable user interface and workflow onto a broad spectrum of media creating a total ‘out of the box’ experience," the companies said. "Intec printers are ideal for a wide range of printing applications including short run print production, heavy stock printing, greeting cards, envelope printing, banner and point of sale applications, packaging and much more due to Intec’s unique capability to print onto substrates up to 600gsm/micron thick. This combination offers unmatched productivity and performance."
The Fiery front end streamlines the whole print production process from job creation to printing, through the use of default paper profiles and print verification. Offering a modular software architecture allows users to add advanced color functionalities such as the Color Verifier and Color Profiler Option, meeting the needs for greater color control in the short-run print production marketplace. The Fiery system for Intec printing systems are compatible with Mac OSX and Windows and is available from authorized Intec partners.
“We are incredibly excited about the new partnership with EFI which ensures Intec continues to evolve within an ever changing print industry, keeping us at the forefront of technology," states Ian Melville, managing director at Intec Printing Solutions. “And even more delighted to be able to offer our customers a flexible and scalable high-speed RIP and color management workflow that is the perfect solution for our range of digital printing solutions.”
Toby Weiss, senior vice president and general manager of Fiery products at EFI states, “We value our new partnership with Intec and the ability to bring the market-leading Fiery color accuracy, cutting-edge performance and superior output to Intec customers. Together we can deliver exceptional and unique products to new markets and market segments globally.”
