Fiery LLC, the largest independent provider of digital front ends (DFEs), announced the next generation of Fiery® Command WorkStation®, a centralized job management interface that seamlessly connects to all Fiery driven cutsheet, large format, and high-speed inkjet printers to run print production processes. This integration allows businesses to choose the best printers available in the industry now and in the future.
“The latest release of Fiery Command WorkStation 7 helps print rooms gain operational efficiencies with new features that elevate color performance, accelerate job setup, and simplify server settings,” said John Henze, Vice President, Sales and Marketing, Fiery. “With direct integration to ColorGuard, operators no longer need to step out of the Command WorkStation interface to action color process control tasks, including color verification and recalibration. Within one interface, companies can monitor the color quality of multiple Fiery driven print devices to ensure they produce colors that meet customer expectations.”
“As a Fiery ColorGuard user, I’m very pleased to see that the client functions are now built into Command WorkStation 7,” states Nick Fay, Digital Manager for Colortech Inc., an integrated marketing, design, and full-service printing provider in Pennsylvania, USA. “The new Spot Pro enhancements, particularly Variations, will help us better serve our color-critical customer base — and the new Job History feature will help us identify the correct version of a job for reprints.”
