FujiFilm XMF

Fujifilm XMF Workflow is a highly capable workflow system based on JDF specifications and Adobe APPE technology.

 

This gives XMF Workflow tremendous flexibility and increased integration capabilities with MIS and other third party solutions that support the JDF specification. XMF Workflow has many “high value” features including the ability to scale the system based on productivity requirements. XMF Workflow is an end to end solution from PDF creation and preflight through imposition to trapping and output maintaining the PDF file format right up to the final rendering stage using the Adobe PDF Print Engine (APPE), interpreter.

XMF Workflow supports both offset and digital presses, including Fujifilm’s J Press portfolio of digital inkjet presses.
The ‘one-screen’ interface allows the user to define proofing and printing workflows, to view job content and structure, and to set up and preview impositions.

Workflow is a crucial function at the heart of any print operation, whether offset, digital or a combination of both. XMF Workflow is a powerful and flexible production hub that is built around PDF and JDF technologies to offer a rich set of capabilities in pre-flighting, color management, imposition and screening for a variety of output devices. These output devices include platesetters, digital presses and portfolio of digital inkjet presses.

 

One of the most comprehensive workflow platforms for managing integrated production, XMF Workflow has been designed to meet the production demands of sheetfed, web, and digital print companies. Based on Adobe’s PDF Print Engine (APPE), XMF Workflow has, from its inception, led the way in combining the creative depth of Adobe’s Creative Suite applications with streamlined print production. XMF Workflow brings together Fujifilm’s expertise in color, imposition, and workflow production to allow printers to increase efficiency and productivity  while maintaining high-quality production at all times

Built for speed and efficiency

XMF Workflow has tools to improve efficiencies throughout your business, handling complex PDFs with ease. Using Fujifilm’s ‘Pure PDF’ implementation of the Adobe PDF Print Engine, XMF Workflow ensures that supplied files can be processed extremely quickly. And, because XMF Workflow uses the latest Adobe technology, keeping up with applications is simple.

 

Built for automation and flexibility

Although easy to use, with a ‘one screen’ production window, XMF Workflow provides complete control and flexibility in production. And, with its JDF foundation, XMF Workflow is able to link easily to MIS systems, reducing job preparation time as well as providing real-time cost data. All the functions  you would expect in a workflow are available in XMF Workflow – pre flighting, trapping, and, of course, color management, all alongside Fujifilm’s advanced imposition functions.

 

Built for digital and offset

The XMF Workflow suite of solutions provides true cross-media capability. With the ability to prepare a PDF for either CTP or digital output at the click of a mouse, XMF Workflow automatically applies the appropriate imposition, color management and screening settings, maintaining data integrity and color consistency throughout. XMF Workflow also allows for sections to be output to digital presses for proofing purposes.

 

Built to help you add value.

Adding new services is key to retaining and gaining business. XMF Workflow enables you to create 3D digital mock-ups, complete with the ability to turn virtual pages in the viewer, showing the effects of different paper types, and allows you to send these as stand-alone 3D virtual proofs to clients. The 3D mock-ups are created from APPE- rendered pages and the production imposition scheme and are therefore as close a representation of the printed product as you can get without actually putting ink on paper. Also, the optional XMF Workflow Remote module adds powerful web browser-based online job submission, previewing, annotation, and approval. This enables you to expand the range of remote services you offer your customers, speeding up job hand-off, review, correction, and sign-off.

 

Built to reduce costs

Not only does XMF Workflow increase efficiency, but it can also reduce costs. Its intuitive, easy-to-use interface requires very little training, saving both time and money. And, its support for unlimited Mac and PC workflow clients allows unlimited imposition clients without having to pay for additional user licences.

 

Built to last

Because XMF Workflow is built exclusively around the latest-generation APPE using Fujifilm’s ‘Pure PDF’ approach, it is considerably more efficient at handling the increasingly complex PDF files that both current and future creative applications will produce. This is complemented by integral JDF support, which delivers enhanced communication between applications pre-press, press, and finishing equipment as part of an information-rich production environment, bringing full visibility of job progress and costs. XMF Workflow is also highly scalable, with the ability to add multiple additional servers to support growing production facilities or customer demand. Together, these factors make XMF Workflow a sound investment in the future of your print production.

The  powerful  Section  Proof  feature  allows  jobs  that  are
imposed for offset press to be split apart and re-imposed
for a smaller digital press automatically.  This is done using
JDF information so there is no chance pages will be in the
wrong sequence from offset forms to digital press proofs.
