Two newspapers in Pennsylvania have signed recent contracts with New ProImage America:
The Bradford Era is changing its production workflow to locally configured NewsWayX. Edition plans are created in NewsWayX that are updated via changing icons and colors when pages are received and start processing through the workflow. Pages are received into a hot folder, they are then RIPped, imposed/paired, softproofed and — once approved — plate-ready Tiffs are adjusted for Web Growth (Fan-Out) and output to local Screen CTP device. Bradford will also be using ProImage's OnColor ECO SaaS ink optimization service to reduce color ink usage while enhancing quality.
The Courier-Express is also changing its workflow to NewsWayX and will have a similar workflow to The Bradford Era. The Courier-Express will add a proofer to their workflow where RIPped pages will be sent to a local color plotter so operators can view both a hardproof, as well as softproofs of the pages. For a Disaster Recovery workflow, the paper will use ProImage’s Cloud system that can RIP pages and send plate-ready Tiffs from the Cloud workflow system right to local Kodak and Screen CTP devices, with load balancing and color locking between the two.
