[] Toronto (ON), Canada - Zevrix Solutions today announces the release of Output Factory Server 3, a major upgrade to company's output automation tool for Adobe InDesign. The app automates InDesign production workflows by processing files from watched hot folders. True to its name, Output Factory Server provides printers and publishing companies with conveyor-style industrial output facilities that reduce manual labor and save InDesign operators countless hours of tedious repetitive tasks.

The new version incorporates LinkOptimizer, the company's image workflow automation solution for InDesign, directly into Output Factory Server. Long requested by LinkOptimizer customers, the new version will be able to serve unlimited users on a network from a single installation via watched hot folders. LinkOptimizer users will now take advantage of the existing and time-proven hot folder facilities of Output Factory Server that automate workflows of printers, publishers and ad agencies worldwide for well over a decade.

LinkOptimizer automates complex image manipulation tasks and allows users to reduce the size of InDesign links, convert image colors and formats, run Photoshop actions and much more. And as LinkOptimizer becomes a part of Output Factory Server, users will be empowered to combine LinkOptimizer processing with standard output workflows such as PDF, print, IDML and other formats. For example, the app will provide an option to resize, convert and relink images by LinkOptimizer - and then export the optimized InDesign file to PDF automatically with no further steps required by the operator. All they need to do is drop InDesign file into a single hot folder that invokes the multi-workflow processing.

The final product that combines both Output Factory Server 3 and LinkOptimizer Server will also enable InDesign workgroups to resize and crop images to their InDesign dimensions, convert image link formats, output InDesign layer combinations as single files, send email notifications, perform automatic preflighting, and much more.

Pricing and Availability:
Output Factory Server 3 with built-in LinkOptimizer Server can be purchased from Zevrix web site for $699.95 (USD), as well as from authorized resellers. Trial is also available for download.
