OneVision expands pre-press suite with powerful features

The last few months have made one thing quite obvious. In order to emerge stronger from crisis situations, it is essential to be able to rely on automated processes in unforeseeable situations and to intervene flexibly and quickly in print production. Recognising this need, OneVision releases new software for automated print file preparation.

OneVision, the specialist for automation solutions in print data preparation, has expanded pre-press suite with powerful features, which reduce file sizes significantly through image referencing, automatically create hemstitches and designed for dynamic workflow routing and variable data printing. Considering different aspects, when further developing its prepress software Asura over the past months, OneVision has equipped it with three new powerful functionalities.

Reference XObject

In the field of direct mailing or dialog marketing, but also in the production of newspaper supplements, books, brochures and other print products, images are often repeated in files. This causes unnecessarily large file volumes. With the new ‘embed recurring images only once function’, identical images are embedded only once. For all other occurrences, ‘Reference XObject’ elements are being created that reference the embedded image. This allows file sizes to be significantly reduced and processing times of subsequent systems to be accelerated. This has shorten processing times by reducing file sizes through image referencing.

Adding Hemstitches

Automated creation of hemstitches makes printing, particularly large-format printers and sign manufacturers work more efficiently. Hemstitches are mainly important in wide-format and textile production. The new module ‘Add Hemstitches’ adds hemstitches to supplied print data. The print image can be flipped on all sides or white space can be added. The required sizes can be set individually. For double-sided printing, the motif can be chosen between front and back. Print data are therefore perfectly optimised for production requirements.

No time-consuming reprints

Printers send their customers proof sheets of prepared print files for print approval. This is intended to avoid costly and time-consuming reprints. With the improved functionality of the VDP module, colours and fonts contained in the print file can be used as properties. This information can be used in many different ways including for the dynamic generation of proof sheets. In addition, the file properties enable routing within the workflow and hence ensure a dynamic, smooth file preparation.

With the new release, OneVision Software demonstrates again that its now more than 3,000 customers worldwide receive major new features regularly – at least twice a year –that enable printers, publishers and other print service providers to automatically produce error-free, high-quality print files and ultimately increase their job profitability.
