Ridgefield Park, NJ-based Agfa Graphics (www.agfa.com) announces :Apogee 7, the
new version of Agfa's :Apogee workflow management suite, will be
available for live demonstrations at Graph Expo 2010. Agfa's
solutions can be found in booths 2611 and 844.
This newest version includes :Apogee Impose, an imposition module that relies on live job information rather than templates to perform imposition. Additionally, :Apogee 7 allows print buyers to go beyond the web-to-print screen to create new jobs in the prepress stage with WebApproval.
:Apogee 7 also includes :Apogee Portal 7, the latest version of Agfa's portal for file uploading, preflighting and softproofing that provides advanced functionality for user convenience and automation. Each upgrade contained in the new :Apogee 7 is aimed at making everyone involved in the print production process - from designers to print buyers to the production team - be more productive and responsive to their customers.
Other tools included in Agfa's :Apogee 7 are :Apogee Prepress, a full JDF-enabled prepress production hub that provides increased levels of automation throughout the production environment, :Apogee InkSave for increased ink efficiency and cost savings, and :Apogee Platemaker, which monitors and controls an organization's platesetters, for continuous plate production.
:Apogee Vibe, the engine behind Agfa's digital presses, :M-Press TIGER and :Dotrix Modular will also be on hand. :Apogee Vibe provides high-end industrial printers with automation and personalization tools.
