Canon U.S.A. Launches Océ PRISMAproduction Version 5.0

Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, today announced a new version of Océ PRISMAproduction®, its fully automated high-performance workflow and output management system for commercial, book, direct mail and transactional printing.

Océ PRISMAproduction version 5.0 features a host of enhancements and expanded workflow management capabilities. From the new InkControl and Print File Enhancer tools to enhancements of existing features, PRISMAproduction version 5.0 helps boost efficiency, improve productivity, increase connectivity, and provide for flexible usability.

“With the launch of PRISMAproduction version 5.0, we’ve raised the bar in terms of output management,” said Mal Baboyian, executive vice president, Canon Solutions America, Inc. “Print service providers now have access to a more robust suite of workflow management capabilities designed to help enhance their creative capabilities while streamlining print shop production management.”

Dynamic Additions

For high precision and transparency of print job calculations, PRISMAproduction version 5.0 includes InkControl, a dynamic new feature which enables customers to estimate job-specific ink usage before a print run. InkControl uses the pixel counting feature in the Océ SRA® MP controller, along with data about actual droplet sizes defined in the job setup, to calculate ink consumption estimates prior to printing. Actual ink usage is reported during production.

Another new feature, the Print File Enhancer, allows Print Service Providers (PSPs) to enhance and/or modify PDF and AFP files through the use of a Graphical User Interface. They can create index information, add barcodes, text or images, insert pages, shift content, or sort print files for postal optimization with just a few clicks of the mouse. This allows for last-minute changes on print-ready files without having to go back to the original application.

Enhanced Automation

Additional enhancements, new to PRISMAproduction version 5.0, include the Pre-Printed Forms Replacement Module, which allows users to use plain white paper rather than pre-printed stocks for forms output. The Pre-Printed Forms Replacement Module generates the form data electronically replacing the pre-printed paper, and controls its use based on settings in the job ticket.

Meanwhile, the enhanced Professional Document Composer (PDC) utilizes a new user interface which provides an intuitive way of imposing files, resulting in the streamlined production of books and personalized documents. The PDC is fully integrated into PRISMAproduction and controlled by the job ticket for maximized automation. This helps eliminate the need to use external third-party software to do the imposing and allows for a fully-automated workflow.
