[prMac.com] Toronto (ON) Canada - Zevrix Solutions today is proud to announce the release of Output Factory Server, a new solution to automate printing, exporting and post-processing from Adobe InDesign. Developed originally for a major magazine publisher in the United States to free up their operator computers from outputting InDesign files, the software automates InDesign workflow by processing files from watched hot folders.
Under Output Factory Server workflow, production artists, prepress operators and designers simply copy files to hot folders that reside on the network. Users can create hot folders for any type of output - for example, hi-res PDF, large format printing, EPUB files and so on. The program automatically outputs the files from its dedicated workstation using hot folder settings, and will auto-activate document fonts as well. Operator workstations will never again be tied up by the output process. The workflow also ensures that correct output settings will be always used.
Output Factory Server offers the following key features:
* Process InDesign files automatically from watched hot folders
* Support for printing, PDF, PostScript, EPS, JPEG, Flash, EPUB and other formats
* Export InDesign files as single pages
* Layer versioning: output specific layers and their combinations as single files
* Update modified links automatically
* Variable output file names
* Preflight files before output
* Automatic e-mail notifications of process stages and errors
* Send final files to FTP, Amazon S3 and other locations
Output Factory Server also allows for a single set of output settings for an entire workgroup, solving problems caused by inconsistent settings across workstations and dramatically simplifying support tasks.

Output Factory Server can be purchased from Zevrix web site for $699.95 (USD), as well as from authorized resellers. Trial is also available for download. BatchOutput Server users can upgrade for $349.97. Output Factory Server runs on Mac OS X 10.6-10.9 and works with Adobe InDesign CS3-CC.
