EFI Fiery FS300 Pro – the newest Fiery digital front end (DFE) platform to date – is now available for the Konica Minolta AccurioPress line of digital presses, including new AccurioPress C3080 and C3070 series products.
Electronics For Imaging, Inc. and Konica Minolta Business Solutions U.S.A., Inc. jointly announced updated EFI Fiery DFEs offering a range of improvements that help users maximize productivity, minimize touch points and achieve superior colour and output quality.
In addition to the operational improvements that come with EFI’s latest Fiery FS300 Pro DFE platform, customers benefit from the streamlined and efficient control and management capabilities of the new version 6 of EFI Fiery Command WorkStation – one of the industry’s most widely used digital printing job management interfaces.
“The combination of our advanced AccurioPress lineup and Fiery DFEs have proven very successful for our customers,” said Kevin Kern, senior vice president, business intelligence services and product planning, Konica Minolta. “The upgrade to the newest Fiery platform helps ensure that our customers stay on the very leading edge of digital print productivity.”
The new Fiery DFEs support Konica Minolta’s innovative IQ-501 Intelligent Quality Optimizer with Integrated Colour Care Unit, which allows operators to scan colour patches and registration marks in-line for “1-touch” automated closed loop colour control and precise front-to-back registration from the press panel. Using EFI Fiery Colour Profiler Suite colour management software, the Fiery DFEs with supported Konica Minolta engines can be G7 calibrated and matched to GRACoL Colorspace compliance or Fogra PSD level A for the PSO Coated/Fogra 51 reference. Fiery Colour Profiler Suite also supports many spectrophotometers, including the Konica Minolta FD-9.
The newest-version EFI Fiery DFEs, as well as an upgrade kit for previously released versions, are available from Konica Minolta.
