Output Option Highlights
- Mix and match output options: Printer Options M, XL and XXL offer three output options depending on the printer size, making the output options unlimited.
- Extended proofing capabilities: EFI ColorproofXF’s Fiery Option* allows graphic professionals to harness the power, performance and speed of Fiery technology in the proofing process. This feature enables users to print their proofing jobs directly from Fiery-driven devices and to build multi-purpose printer pools to do contract, content and concept proofing and digital print production.
- Ability to export color-managed files: With the File Export Option*, users can achieve a more flexible workflow and export color-managed TIFF and PDF files. With the Gravure Option*, they create separated grayscale TIFFs for digital engraving of gravure cylinders.
Product Option Highlights
- Advanced functionality for specific needs: Spot Color Option* enables users to process and output accurate color proofs of supported formats with spot colors. The Color Manager Option* provides a suite of ICC-based tools for managing color and optimizing the system for the unique characteristics of a well-defined environment, while the Color Verifier Option* assures consistent color quality by measuring and comparing color values.
- Expand services with large-format printing: The Production Option* transforms large-format printers into fast solutions that produce additional services such as poster or banner production for generating new revenue streams. The option provides cutting-edge production features such as expanded step & repeat for easier and quicker pattern creation, and a tiling function, which enables the processing of print jobs that are larger then the printer width. It also allows users to make real-time color adjustments.
