Montreal-based workflow developer Polkadots Software Inc., which specializes in database-driven workflow automation for Harlequin RIP technology, signed ECI Graphics as the NEWSflo distributor for Mexico and Central America.
A well-known digital color workflow supplier that has supplied the Mexican graphic arts market for 15 years, ECI Graphics is the Dainippon Screen distributor for the Mexican newspaper market and sought a complete computer-to-plate production workflow to complement Screen platesetters.
Polkadots Software released NEWSflo in 2004, bringing ROOM (RIP-once, output-many) to all levels of newspaper production: ad and page makeup and final page pairing. NEWSflo ensures that the printed version matches a proof, whether Web-based soft proof or calibrated newsprint hard copy, while maintaining a PDF workflow for Internet and archive production purposes.
