Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG (Heidelberg) has introduced a
special version of its Prinect MetaDimension RIP system for

"Many small print shop owners want a cost-effective
means of achieving an integrated print shop workflow that uses
cutting-edge technology to manage their standard processes
efficiently, without all functions needing to be fully automated.
Our new Prinect tools are the Heidelberg response to these
customers' needs," explains Jörg Bauer, Head of Prinect

The Acrobat plug-In Prinect Imposition Editor offers the user
a comprehensive selection of functions that can be used to
imposition PDF documents in Acrobat. These include setting up the
page format, various folding layouts, definitions for print sheets
and paper formats, and also the handling of marks and information
text. The imposition settings can be saved in JDF format and reused
for reprints or as templates for new jobs. The Prinect Imposition
Editor creates a fully imposed PDF sheet with all marks and
information needed image plates using Prinect MetaDimension 52i. To
further increase functionality and automation, this package can be
enhanced with the Prinect Signa Station impositioning workstation,
which ensures high throughput for all applications and formats.
Prinect MetaDimension 52i offers small print shops an
attractively priced entry into integrated workflow management.
