[prMac.com] Toronto, Canada - Zevrix Solutions today announces the release of Output Factory 1.2.1, a feature update to its professional solution to automate printing, exporting and post-processing from Adobe InDesign. Output Factory automates and simplifies workflows of printers, prepress bureaus, design agencies and publishing houses worldwide, and is the major upgrade of the company's widely popular plug-in BatchOutput.
The new version improves processing of InDesign book (.indb) files. Output Factory now exports books as single files consisting of all InDesign documents within the book, as opposite to generating a separate output file for each document. The new feature helps users dramatically streamline and accelerate conversion of InDesign books to PDF and e-books.
"Output Factory has been the single biggest time-saver I've encountered in ten years of print production," says Mike Agate, Head of Production of Which?, Europe's largest consumer rights organization. "With the reduction in head count and efficiency savings, it must have paid for itself 500 times over."
Whether users need to send hundreds of documents or just a single file, Output Factory is a powerful solution to automate InDesign's output tasks. Users only need to select InDesign files, adjust workflow settings, and Output Factory will do the rest automatically. For example, the software can be left printing hundreds of InDesign files overnight, and the completed job can be picked up next morning.
Output Factory offers the following key features:
* Batch processing of InDesign files
* Support for printing and exporting to PDF, PostScript, EPS, Flash and other formats
* Output as single pages
* Save groups of output settings and output to several formats at once
* Update modified links automatically
* Powerful variable output file names
* Layer versioning
* Automatic preflight of InDesign and final PDF files
* Detailed output history
Pricing and Availability:
Output Factory can be purchased from Zevrix website for $169.95 USD (Light version $119.95), as well as from authorized resellers. A trial is also available for download. BatchOutput users can upgrade to Output Factory for $84.97. Output Factory is available for Mac OS X 10.5-10.7 on Intel-based Macs and works with Adobe InDesign CS3-CS6.
