    Regensburg, 08.03.2017 – The German software publisher, OneVision Software, will shortly be launching a new release of its prepress workflow software Asura. With the launch of this new version, Asura Family 17.1, OneVision Software will offer its customers the option of expanding their prepress workflows with a trapping module. Two different trapping options have been developed for newspaper publishers as well as offset and digital printers that enable printing without unsightly white spaces. With PDF trapping, the Asura plugin PlugCOMMERCIAL-PRINTin is used to generate an additional layer to the original file, which allows the customer to validate the trapping result as needed and, if required, to make manual adjustments. With In-RIP Trapping, trapping takes place during halftone printing, which is performed using the Asura plugin PlugRASTER-HDin and is thus incorporated into the prepress workflow. Read more ...

    Düsseldorf, 14. März 2017 – Im Rahmen eines Workshops stellte Fujifilm am 14. Februar 2017 in seiner Europazentrale in Düsseldorf die neue Version 5 seines Elara-Workflows vor, die der Zeitungsproduktion bislang nicht gekannte Möglichkeiten bietet. Mehrere Teilnehmer aus diversen Zeitungshäusern in ganz Deutschland folgten der Einladung. Die Besucher zeigten sich sowohl von der Leistungsfähigkeit, der Flexibilität und der Offenheit als auch von der Bedienungsfreundlichkeit, der einfachen Konfigurierbarkeit und der Sicherheit des modularen Workflows beeindruckt. Via Internet-Verbindung wurde während des Workshops zu Demozwecken mehrfach live in die Produktion eines führenden holländischen Zeitungshauses geschaltet, das mit Elara drei Druckstandorte zentral steuert und jährlich etwa fünf Millionen Druckplatten produziert. In den Dialogen zwischen den Workshop-Teilnehmern und den Zeitungsexperten von Fujifilm wurde deutlich, dass die bisher verfügbaren Zeitungsworkflows viele Anforderungen der Verlage und Druckereien kaum in zufriedenstellender Weise abdecken.
