Fiery Command WorkStation 7 will be available for free to all Fiery users in the world by October 2023.
- Fiery Impose Integration with Duplo DC-648. Simplify the prepress to post-press setup for high-value jobs that require customized finishing with Fiery Impose, a PDF imposition software, that seamlessly integrates with Duplo’s latest mid-range DC-648 slitter/cutter/creaser finisher. This innovative collaboration automates and speeds up the job preparation. It can reduce setup time for operators by as much as 80%. In addition, Fiery Impose supports the DC-648’s unique ability to finish a job with up to 20 mountain (up) and 20 valley (down) creases in a single pass, totalling an impressive 40 creases.
- Fiery Digital Factory Version 11. Fiery Digital Factory v11 (formerly CADlink Digital Factory) is a software RIP that optimizes the output quality of personalization, customization and specialty print products. Digital Factory, which is compatible with virtually all print devices including direct-to – film, direct-to – garment, UV, Sublimation, Toner Transfer, Wide Format Print and Cut, offers powerful color profiles and production management tools to ensure stunning color reproduction on a wide variety of substrates. This latest release adds Fiery’s Single Pass Highlight White Underbase feature for boosted white ink, creating brighter whites and increasing color vibrancy in a single pass.
The Pinnacle Product Award is given to products that are expected to be on the market by 2023. A highly qualified panel of judges from across the printing industry evaluated the annual contest’s 160+ entries in more than 58 categories spanning analog, digital, output, and non-output technologies.
“One of the things I like best about our competition is that it is juried, and judges are basing their decisions on objective criteria. And with outstanding entries like those submitted by Fiery in the non-output category, they had their work cut out for them,” said Dawn Nye, Program Manager Pinnacle Awards, PRINTING United Alliance.
