and Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG (Heidelberg) today announced that
new MetaDimension RIP and workflow solution optionally can use Enfocus’s PitStop, a preflighting technology.
Heidelberg VP Axel Zoeller explained that his company has been very successful with Enfocus and others when it comes time to develop new products like this.
“With MetaDimension customers can create their individual PDF workflow to their needs thanks to its modularity. Together with Enfocus technology it provides an extremely robust, complete PDF solution,” said Zoeller.
MetaDimension is a PDF-based RIP and workflow system. The technology can use the preflight and auto-correction functionality of PitStop Professional, as well as the automated workflows provided by the hot folder setups in PitStop Server. PitStop Pro provides MetaDimension users with the ability to completely edit the PDF file itself. The addition of the PitStop products is available as an option with MetaDimension.
The companies plan to show off the new system running at PRINT ’01, a trade show in Chicago that runs from September 6-13.
