  • Process PANTONE® Plus spot colors and Adobe® PDF/X files.
  • Maximize brand impact when you print spot colors, graphics and images by utilizing the PDF 2.0 color features supported by the Adobe® PDF Print Engine.

Boost file processing speed

Looking for a simple growth strategy? Process files faster so you can accept more jobs. Fiery® Accelerated System Technology (FAST RIP) increases throughput by using multiprocessing and parallel processing to enable jobs to spool, process and print simultaneously. Built-in production print capabilities include tiling, nesting, cutting, late color editing and more.

Keep honing your color management skills

Satisfy customers who expect perfect color every time with a solution that uses ICC technology along with advanced iterative spot and process color optimization routines. A dynamically created Dynamic Wedge™ control strip shows a job’s key and spot colors to assist you with color optimization and color calibration. Enable operators of all skill levels to accomplish diverse tasks:

  • ICC profile creation, including multichannel and device link profiles
  • Profile monitoring, inspection, correction and editing
  • Overprint, transparency and gradation controls
  • Maximizing fidelity while maintaining ideal gray balance

Strengthen your digital color printing capabilities

Implementing new technology yourself can shift your focus away from revenue-generating activities. Instead, deliver new or enhanced offerings confidently after our color management experts train your staff and transfer knowledge related to devices, standards, processes and certifications. Engage our professional services team to customize, install and integrate the Fiery® XF to ensure comprehensive control of printers, cutting engines and print/cut devices.
