Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, is pleased to announce the upcoming availability of the PRISMAsync Print Server Mark 8 for the imagePRESS C10010VP Series, imagePRESS C10000VP Series, imagePRESS C910 Series, and varioPRINT 140 Series. Canon’s PRISMAsync Print Servers have helped print providers and brand communicators achieve great consistency across print campaigns using short-run targeted digital print, and their benefits continue to evolve in this updated version.
As the first DFE-embedded Idealliance G7® Certified System to combine in-RIP G7 calibration with a high-quality embedded color profiler, the PRISMAsync high-performance Print Server offers many unique and intuitive color tools to help users create consistent, predictable, and vibrant output. This latest version introduces yet another significant feature in color management efficiency with the introduction of the new Automated Color Tasks tool that combines multiple color management functions into one single customizable action.
Press operators are now also able to combine press linearization, G7 calibration, and media color profiling of all press-loaded stocks into a single, automated make-ready function, helping to provide high accuracy while labor cycles are reduced and offering users the ability to attend to other critical tasks. Additionally, the PRISMAsync Mark 8 Server offers an Advanced Imposition license option, which provides a new level of workflow flexibility to environments that benefit from more robust page and sheet formatting tools at the press for applications such as direct mail, business cards, and booklets.
Other features such as Job Scheduler and expanded Automated Workflow functionality can help press operators meet tight deadlines and manage a growing number of shorter print runs; while tools such as PRISMAsync Remote Manager, Remote Control, Remote Match and PRISMAlytics Dashboard are designed to support production managers as they work to improve efficiency and increase productivity.
The PRISMAsync Mark 8 Server is currently scheduled to start becoming available in May 2021 for both new installations and customer upgrades on supported Canon imagePRESS and varioPRINT series presses.
