OneVision Speedflow - JDF further automates printing

July 29, 2004


OneVision recently introduced new versions of Speedflow Suite and Speedflow Cockpit, its solutions for commercial printing. The updates offer JDF integration and help customers to further automate and network their printing processes.

OneVision Speedflow Suite optimizes PDF documents for reliable document exchange, imposition, and output in print and media production. Speedflow Suite 2.1 comes loaded with technology and features that allow customers to increase the efficiency of production processes and minimize problems with PDF-based production in the area of commercial and digital printing. Speedflow Cockpit integrates OneVision's JDFnet -- an innovative sophisticated solution for networked print and media production.

The new versions of Speedflow Check and Speedflow Edit now support PDF 1.5 import, including JPEG 2000 decompression. PDF flattening has also been expanded to PDF 1.5 file processing. With the previous release of Speedflow Check and Speedflow Edit, native PDF processing was handled by OneVision's PDFengine. With Speedflow Suite 2.1, PDFengine has been enhanced to provide faster file import and smaller files on output. Furthermore, automated PDF processing has been extended: PDF/X-1a and PDF/X-3 files can be checked and processed. PDF/X-1a:2003 as well as PDF/X-3:2003 files can also be checked and processed in accordance with the new ISO standards 15930-4 and 15930-6.

Speedflow Edit now includes an interaction log providing information about performed operations for production data acquisition. The interaction log can be picked up by Speedflow Cockpit for job tracking and monitoring. Further technological highlights of Speedflow Check 2.1 and Speedflow Edit 2.1 focus on superior support of ICC color management in PDF/X workflows, improved compatibility of file names in heterogeneous networks, and advanced workflow automation.

Speedflow Impose is the first imposition software in the marketplace offering import of JDF-based as well as PJFT-based imposition schemes. Templates from third-party applications can easily be imported via standardized JDF job tickets; JDF export has already been supported since the last release of Speedflow Impose. To widen the scope of application, PJTF-based template import and export is now implemented in Speedflow Impose 2.1 as well.

OneVision's Speedflow Cockpit is the first JDF-enabled PDF workflow control and collaboration tool for print and media production that manages all prepress communication. Speedflow Cockpit 2.0 now deploys the power of OneVision's unique JDFnet -- helping to carry a job from genesis through completion. Via its built-in control module, Speedflow Cockpit facilitates visual job monitoring and tracking within a production workflow on numerous client workstations. In addition, Speedflow Cockpit offers fully automated JDF-enabled imposition.
