[prMac.com] Toronto (ON) Canada - Zevrix Solutions today announces the release of Output Factory Server 1.0.10, a feature update to its 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.
The new version lets users create large format JPEG images that exceed the file size limitations imposed by InDesign. This improvement has been achieved by using intermediate PDF files as the image source instead of InDesign's direct JPEG export. In addition, the new update lets users embed document's color profile to preserve the original image color values in exported TIFF and JPEG files.
Under Output Factory Server workflow, production artists, prepress operators and designers simply copy InDesign jobs to hot folders that reside on a network. Users can create hot folders for any type of output - for example hi-res PDF, large format printing, EPUB files and so on. Output Factory Server offers the following key features:
* Print and export InDesign files automatically from watched hot folders
* Support for print, PDF, PostScript, EPS, JPEG, Flash, EPUB and other formats
* Supports unlimited users on a network
* Export as single pages
* Layer versioning: output specific layers and their combinations as single files
* Variable output file names
* Preflight files before output
* Automatic e-mail notifications of process stages and errors
Pricing and Availability:
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.
