US – Electronics For Imaging, Inc. (EFI) has partnered with Canon U.S.A., Inc. to introduce new EFI Fiery digital front end (DFE), the imagePRESS Server D3000, for the new Canon imagePRESS V1000 printer.

This innovative new DFE includes a range of advanced software tools that achieve a new level of color management automation and ease of use that consistently delivers outstanding image quality, streamlined workflows and fast performance with parallel processing.

“Through our continuing partnership with EFI, we are giving imagePRESS V1000 users a faster and easier digital workflow solution for producing direct mail, business cards, booklets, posters and other creative marketing collateral,” said Shinichi “Sam” Yoshida, Executive Vice President and General Manager of Canon.

“In today’s tight labor market, using Fiery technology with the Canon imagePRESS V1000 press can quickly achieve and maintain excellent output quality even with less-experienced operators.”

This Fiery DFE for the Canon imagePRESS V1000 is the first to incorporate Express Media Color Manager and Auto Recal, intuitive set-and-forget automation tools that allow operators with little color management knowledge to produce accurate and consistent color at all times.

Creating a custom profile and calibration set for new media requires no operator decision-making. Plus, the DFE automatically executes recalibration schedules to maintain color consistency.

“In today’s fast-paced business environment, print service providers and in-plant operators are faced with increasing demands for shorter runs and competitive pricing,” said John Henze, Vice President of Sales and Marketing, EFI Fiery.

“This new, higher-productivity DFE – featuring Fiery FS500 Pro system software and our most-advanced workflow tools – offers intelligent automation, preflight, and automated color management capabilities that help ensure that users produce documents correctly the first time, every time, at the lowest cost.”

The new DFE takes advantage of the robust operational improvements of its underlying core Fiery FS500 Pro DFE platform technology – the fastest and most advanced DFE offering from EFI Fiery, the industry’s leading DFE technology developer.

And, with the imagePRESS Server D3000, digital print managers and operators also benefit from the streamlined and efficient control and management capabilities of Fiery Command WorkStation – the industry’s most widely used digital printing job management interface.

The Fiery-based Canon imagePRESS Server D3000 is available from Canon U.S.A. and authorized Canon resellers.
