Focus Press Printer implements NewsXtreme Cloud


Presteligence, an industry leading software developer and innovator, announces Focus Press Printer, based in Aurora, Colorado, becomes the latest user to implement NewsXtreme Cloud.

The solution

Focus Press Printer reached out to Presteligence and Kodak for a highly automated solution for both its DGM and Didde press lines.

The Focus Press Printer team chose NewsXtreme Cloud with the integrated Commercial Portal for automated workflow from customer job submission to plate output. By streamlining job submission, collaboration and proofing for both Focus Press and their customers, Focus Press Printer can rely on the Presteligence services to efficiently manage the prepress process while minimizing errors, unexpected costs and delays.

Once the files are preflighted, ripped and proofed by the customer, the pages are composed for plates. Based on the predefined schedule, the system knows which pages should be paired together. It will also place registration marks, bender marks, text and barcodes dependent on the template being used. NewsXtreme Cloud supports page pairing and 4, 8 and 16-up imposition.

Commercial customers can now submit, proof and sign off on their jobs before they are automatically moved into production.

With built in preflight and auto correction automation, the customer gets instant feedback if the file is ready to print.

The Focus Press Printers production team is notified when the job has been approved by the customer and is ready to plate.

Forging a new path

While the Focus Press Printer team is new to the world of offset printing, it has an industry leading workflow backed by Presteligence and Kodak. With the robust automated tools NewsXtreme Cloud provides, Focus Press Printer’s production workflow is primed for success now and into the future.

NewsXtreme Cloud offers a host of features

Included with NewsXtreme Cloud are Ink-Miser ink optimization and PDF Corrector. PDF Corrector provides advanced preflight inspection and reporting of common problems such as embedded fonts, color space usage, minimum text size and image resolution conflicts. Ink optimization automatically replaces areas of cyan, magenta and yellow with an equivalent amount of black ink, saving up to 30% of ink consumption.
