Enhancements to Enfocus Switch 11 enable integration with EFI Fiery XF and Colorproof XF

Enfocus Switch 11

Enfocus has announced that its Enfocus Switch 11 can now be setup to automatically connect to EFI’s Fiery XF or Colorproof XF RIP. This new automation capability will benefit a broad range of professionals involved in large to super-wide format printing such as ad agencies, prepress businesses, publishers, newspapers, packaging companies, full-service printing houses, photographers and print shops. Connection to EFI’s Fiery XF or Colorproof XF RIP is provided through a new configurator which comes standard with Switch 11 update 2 and later versions.

“Our mission is to lead the print industry’s transformation from analogue to digital colour through best-in-class products, technology and services. The integration with Enfocus Switch enables our customers to bridge the gap between their existing workflow and the Fiery's wide format production and proofing systems seamlessly,” says Stefan Spiegel, General Manager of Fiery wide format production and proofing at EFI.

“At Enfocus, we aim to be a world-class software vendor that provides solutions to the broad publishing market supporting end-to-end automation with an innovative modular and open approach," comments Angelo Manno, Global Account Manager Crossroads & OEM at Enfocus. "With EFI as a Crossroads partner, our customers can fully automate their digital print production workflows economically and without the need to manually intervene. This will reduce errors, streamline production and shorten time to market."

Support for naming conventions, metadata, integration with databases, preflighting files, and more, helps customers take full advantage of Switch's Smart Automation features. Processed files are automatically routed to the appropriate RIP and output device for correct printing and finishing. Without any manual intervention, the correct settings for the output device will be used, such as color management, sheet size, rotation, scaling, nesting, tiling, step and repeat, footer, and finishing.
