Output Factory Server for Adobe InDesign Improves Conversion to Images
Toronto, Canada – Zevrix Solutions today announces the release of Output Factory Server 1.0.13, a maintenance update to its solution to automate printing, exporting and post-processing from Adobe InDesign. Developed originally for a major magazine publisher in the United States to free up their operator computers from outputting InDesign files, the software automates InDesign workflow by processing files from watched hot folders.
The new update addresses several issues related to exported image quality as well as performance and stability:
* A higher PDF version is now used to create intermediate files for converting InDesign documents to images, which eliminate lines that could appear in exported images
* Further improvements in preserving color values in TIFF and JPEG images
* Bicubic downsampling is now always used for creating intermediate PDF files, which solves the issue of rough edges in certain images
* Fixed an issue in which a crash could occur if a modal dialog was open in InDesign during processing
Under Output Factory Server workflow, production artists, prepress operators and designers simply copy InDesign jobs to hot folders that reside on a network. Users can create hot folders for any type of output – for example hi-res PDF, large format printing, EPUB files and more.
* Print and export InDesign files automatically from hot folders
* Export as single pages
* Layer versioning
* Variable output file names
* Preflight files before output
* Automatic e-mail notifications
