[prMac.com] Toronto (ON) Canada - Zevrix Solutions today is proud to announce the release of Output Factory Server 1.2.10, 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 adds support for new image export options during HTML output introduced in InDesign CC 2015. The first option is to copy the original images into the web images subfolder. The second option lets users enter a local URL (such as "images/") that appears in front of the image file. In the HTML code, the link attribute displays the path and extension the user specified. This option is especially effective when users convert images to web-compatible images themselves.
"Output Factory Server is an extremely useful utility for a busy production facility or advertising agency", writes David Creamer in Layers magazine, "It can save lots of time - which equates to money."
Under the 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 different output targets such as hi-res PDF, large format printing, Flash files and so on. The software offers the following key features:
* Print and export InDesign files from watched hot folders
* Supports print, PDF, PostScript, TIFF, EPUB and other formats
* Automatic email notifications
* Export InDesign files as single pages
* Layer versioning
* Variable output file names
* Preflight files before output
* Serve unlimited users on a network
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 $350. Output Factory Server runs on Mac OS X 10.6-10.11 and works with Adobe InDesign CS5-CC 2015.
