Agfa Graphics, Mortsel, Belgium, and Ridgefield Park, N.J., has introduced Apogee Portal 7, the new version for file upload, preflight and softproofing, with greater convenience and automation.
The latest version builds on Agfa’s StreamProof pixel-on-demand technology to provide fast access to reliable soft proofs rendered and color managed by Apogee Prepress. Now fully integrated in the StreamProof viewer, Apogee’s Preflight directs print buyers to potential production problems.
Users can provide Apogee Portal 7 to customers without buying extra client software or licenses. A standard browser and broadband Internet connection are sufficient to access reliable softproofs. Dedicated software tools for calibrating and color managing displays for soft proofing integrate with Apogee Portal.
Intuitive self-service features allow print buyers to define and create new jobs without prepress intervention. Combined with the necessary diagnostic tools it enables greater automation and minimizes printer intervention. An interface based on Adobe Flex-technology provides single-dashboard user convenience and reduces the need to train or support print buyers.
