Nowadays, to ensure job accuracy especially for pharmaceutical products, pre-press studios have to perform quality controls. To streamline inspection processes, EyeC and HYBRID Software have recently launched the EyeC Driver, a new application that integrates EyeC’s state-of-the-art PDF proofing technology — the EyeC Proofiler Graphic — into HYBRID Software's CLOUDFLOW.
With the EyeC Driver, pre-press studios reduce the time, effort and money spent on quality controls. The integration triggers inspection procedures within the CLOUDFLOW automatically, retrieving job data, files and inspection parameters from the workflow system. Pre-press files are inspected and released automatically if they match the approved artwork. Pre-press operators only have to intervene when deviations are detected. A task appears in their workspace that opens the EyeC Proofiler Graphic for an easy review of discrepancies.
The EyeC software verifies the entire content of pre-press files against the approved artwork. Text, graphics, Braille, 1D and 2D codes are checked in a single inspection cycle. Users can create as many inspection procedures as needed to compare, for instance, pre-press files against customer files, one-up against step-and-repeat files or different versions of a file. They follow consistent control procedures without manual intervention.
"We are glad to integrate our proofing technology into CLOUDFLOW to combine top inspection capabilities with modern workflow processes," Dr. Ansgar Kaupp, CEO of EyeC GmbH, explains. Christopher Graf, Chief Marketing Officer of HYBRID Software adds: "At HYBRID Software, the focus is always on automation and efficiency. Therefore, we are pleased to have developed with EyeC an application that streamlines quality controls and boosts security."
