As it marks the 20-year anniversary of the first Fiery digital print server, EFI has launched the next-generation Fiery platform, which the company says increases operator productivity, produces more accurate and consistent colour, and provides stronger variable data capabilities.Named Fiery System 10, the new platform delivers documents faster than ever before, along with the latest system calibration technology to improve colour consistency, tighter integration with the printer's finishing options, and greater flexibility and control, according to EFI.
Toby Weiss, general manager of the Fiery business unit and senior vice president of EFI says, “EFI has been a pioneer in digital print technology for the past two decades, and continues to lead the technology advancement of digital front-end controllers with today's platform launch.
“System 10 is the fastest, most robust ever, and is poised to bring amazing results to demanding customers worldwide. Fiery technology is now the most integrated platform in the industry, with connectivity to business process automation solutions, production workflow systems, and direct mobile printing to deliver a complete solution from creation to print."
Print research organisation InfoTrends says the Fiery System 10 release provides a wide collection of powerful and user-friendly tools for print workflow.
Jim Hamilton, group director of production hardware at InfoTrends says, "System 10 is a demonstration of EFI's continued leadership position in front- end systems for production digital print.”
EFI adds that Fiery System 10 provides advanced capabilities to customers in four key areas: colour, usability, performance and integration.
