This section lists features and enhancements that were added in this release.
CTP devices connectivity (TIFF Direct)
New JDF bi-directional connectivity between Prinergy and CTP devices via XPO or Print Console including support in Device Track. TIFF Direct allows TIFF files to be pre-generated, but also provides a JDF/JMF communication channel between the CTP device and Prinergy. The CTP device communicates its capabilities in JMF format and the values for the different parameters are reflected in the job ticket options per device. Printing progress is monitored in Prinergy Device Track. You get the flexibility of indirect, file-based output, but you also get status reporting that you can track and record via the JDF/JMF backchannel.
For Prinergy 8.2.0 TIFF Direct using Device Track the following devices and Controlled Release (CR) software are supported:
- Magnus 800 with CR 3.1.1+ Update XPO 4.1.1.022
- Trendsetter/Achieve series V with Print Console 5.1
JDF bi-directional connectivity between Prinergy and digital devices
Newly supported DFEs:
- Creo Color Server – IC-314 connected to Konica Minolta AccurioPress 6100/6085, AccurioPrint: 3080/3070/2070/2060
- Ricoh TotalFlow Print Server R-62A DFE, which supports the Ricoh Pro C7200 series digital presses.
DataMatrixSurface marks can now be configured with the same settings as the
DataMatrixPage mark. These new settings can control the dimensions of the mark. [PRINERGY-46106]
