EFI Fiery is industry’s first JDF-certified digital front end
EFI’s Fiery digital front ends (DFEs) are the first in the industry to achieve JDF certification for digital printing. EFI Fiery System 9R2 and newer servers have been awarded the JDF1.3 Integrated Digital Printing Interoperability Conformance Specification (ICS) certification.
As a result of this certification, Fiery-driven devices from the leading digital print engine manufacturers will be easier than ever to integrate with workflow systems from pre-press all the way to printing, says the company.
John Henze, vice president of Fiery marketing at EFI, said: ‘EFI’s continuing investment to support the latest JDF standards is key to enable all the EFI MIS and web-to-print solutions, plus third-party products, to seamlessly integrate with Fiery digital front ends, making Fiery the preferred choice for commercial printers.’
Customers can use JDF certification as a criterion in product evaluation and purchasing decisions. Buying JDF-certified systems and software should save customers time and money when integrating new equipment into their production workflow – without requiring time-consuming coding of private extensions. Developers also save coding time to cut their time to market.
