March 15, 2017: New Fiery Digital Front End for Newest Kyocera TASKalfa MFPs Streamlines Digital Color Print Workflows
FREMONT, Calif., March 15, 2017 – Electronics For Imaging, Inc. (Nasdaq:EFII) announced today the launch of an EFI™ Fiery® digital front end (DFE) for the new Kyocera® TASKalfa® 8052ci and TASKalfa 7052ci MFPs.
“Office workgroups are successfully expanding the range of high-quality documents they can produce in-house, reducing outsourcing expenses by creating their most important color documents with TASKalfa MFPs and EFI Fiery technologies,” said Douglas Cole, Director of Product Marketing, Corporate Marketing Division for KYOCERA Document Solutions America. “Having this Fiery system available for our newest, higher-volume TASKalfa color models allows our customers to do even more with their print without compromising on quality.”
The Fiery Printing System 16 for Kyocera TASKalfa MFPs offers great color and image quality, along with optional tools for automated job submission. Customers can expand their capabilities for personalized printing using the integrated variable data printing (VDP) capabilities of Fiery FreeForm™. Optional Fiery Hot Folder and Virtual Printer features can reduce errors and automate repetitive tasks for all office workers.
The Fiery DFE offers impressive performance, processing complex, content- and image-rich files thanks to Fiery SmartRIP technology for intelligent, streamlined processing of queued jobs. Users benefit from the ability to process and produce professional-looking booklets, brochures, manuals, and flyers in-house and on demand, at a fraction of the cost of outsourcing.
Users also gain improved color results with tools such as Fiery Spot-On™ to ensure the best match for PANTONE® colors. Printing management is easier with Fiery VUE, a certified desktop application for the Fiery DFE that simplifies the process for creating professional-looking print materials such as booklets, sales guides, and manuals in just a few clicks. The application, which can be downloaded for free at www.efi.com/fieryvue, also provides users with an instant 3D preview of the finished product.
Advanced management and superior automation
Fiery Booklet Maker, another automated feature for the new DFE, is a driver-based imposition tool that allows users to print multiple pages of a print job from any application in a booklet style without the need for more advanced imposition programs. And, an optional Fiery Productivity Package gives users the ability to perform advanced queue management tasks, automated job submission and preparation, and last-minute image corrections.
“The Fiery Printing System 16 feature EFI’s latest, most advanced, digital production technology platform – Fiery FS200 system software – for uncompromising performance,” said John Henze, vice president, Fiery marketing, EFI. “Fiery VUE allows TASKalfa users to easily produce professional documents with a visual, interactive desktop printing application and can reduce paper and toner consumption.”
