[prMac.com] Toronto (ON), Canada - Zevrix Solutions today announces BatchOutput Server 4.2.4, an update to its powerful output workflow automation solution for Adobe InDesign. Originally developed for a major magazine publisher in the United States to free up their operator computers from outputting InDesign files, the software automates InDesign output by processing files from hotfolders.
BatchOutput Server offloads printing and exporting to PDF and PostScript to a central system leaving operator workstations free from the output process. Under this workflow, production artists and prepress operators simply submit files to hotfolders that reside on the network. BatchOutput Server automatically outputs the files from its dedicated station using hotfolder settings, and will auto-activate document fonts as well. Operator workstations will never again be tied up by the output process.
BatchOutput allows users to output InDesign documents as single pages, update links automatically and compose complex variable file names. As a powerful workgroup solution, the software offers customizable e-mail notifications, detailed logs, automatic error handling and the detailed feedback during processing. Supervisors and operators can monitor all BatchOutput Server activities from their stations using the special Monitor application without the need to walk up to the server station.
The new update improves error reporting of permission and network related events, and introduces compatibility with Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard.
Pricing and Availability:
BatchOutput Server can be purchased for $699.95 (USD) from the Zevrix Solutions website as well as from authorized resellers. Trial is also available for download. BatchOutput Server runs on Mac OS X 10.4.2-10.6, a Universal Binary, and works with Adobe InDesign CS-CS4. Files can be submitted from both Mac and PC computers.
