Helios Software GmbH
on Friday announced that its ImageServer software has been updated to support QuarkXPress 6. Helios OPI TuneUp and Helios Preview XTensions, two components of Helios ImageServer 2.5, are now available for free download from the Web site, for ImageServer users with software upgrade service. Helios ImageServer adds OPI image replacement, server-based ICC color management, color separation and proof printing capabilities, along with server-based image repurposing, conversion of image file format, resolution, color space and compression.
Helios OPI TuneUp enables full Open Prepress Interface (OPI) workflow support, ensuring proper separation for composite and separated PostScript output or PDF generation. The Helios Preview XTension creates preview files of QuarkXPress documents that can be viewed on local and remote Web-accessible servers.
Both XTensions also support older, non-Mac OS X versions of QuarkXPress going back to the software’s v4 release.
