DALIM SOFTWARE announces the launch of TWIST 7.5, a significant update of its popular and long-standing production automation software. The new features in TWIST extends the software’s reach beyond its traditional print production and image workflows to support media production for the brand enterprise. In doing so, production automation is expanded from business process management to final file processing—from preflight to image handling to video.
TWIST 7.5: Built to work with even more file formats and supporting new image standards
TWIST is DALIM SOFTWARE’s popular and long-standing production automation software. Some of the industry’s most recognizable companies use TWIST to achieve high throughput, reliability and flexibility in demanding content production environments. They gain significant performance with features such as the ability to build an almost infinite variety of processing paths; a very extensive modular feature set; and automation of repetitive tasks such as preflighting, file optimization and conversion, color management, and trapping, to name a few. With its association with noted industry organizations such as GWG, Fogra and IDEAlliance, plus its strategic partnerships with many vendors, DALIM SOFTWARE ensures that the quality of produced files exceeds industry standards.
TWIST 7.5 supports new image file formats that are commonly used by photographers (Raw), retouchers (Adobe Photoshop’s psd) and web portals (png) to improve image handling in design, marketing and ad agencies. All of this adds functionality to file handling for documents for print, publications and image workflows for automation, while overall performance has been increased as well.
And in order to simplify interaction with TWIST workflows, DALIM SOFTWARE is providing the new TWIST Link plugin, which provides an easy-to-use connection to a TWIST media workflow engine, for file processing directly from Adobe® InDesign® and Adobe® Illustrator®. Based on Adobe’s standard PDF export and the DALIM SOFTWARE WEBLINK API, TWIST Link removes the complexity of PDF creation and file transfer with one simple user interface, and sends any document to a selected TWIST workflow. The TWIST Link plugins are available free of charge on www.dalim.com.
TWIST 7.5 is available now.
