For many companies in the print media industry today, working with
CtP imagesetters is an excellent means of optimizing their
profitability. But how can Heidelberg CtP and CtF devices be
integrated into existing and future workflows? And how do you avoid
costly and time-consuming conversion of established production
processes? Prinect MetaShooter from Heidelberg is a made-to-measure
solution that provides the user with a whole range of benefits.
Integration into the Prinect workflow, open systems, optimized flexibility and absolute data security make this software a future-focused investment. Prinect MetaShooter uses the reliable TIFF-B data format, the format used for storing the imposed and screened sheet. TIFF-B works like a digital film, thereby ensuring absolute data security and maximum reliability.
One of the key benefits of Prinect MetaShooter is its significantly enhanced performance in the prepress process. While Prinect MetaDimension is able to generate any number of bitmaps when disengaged from the imaging unit, Prinect MetaShooter can output the TIFF-B bitmaps generated by the RIP to the connected recorders. Advantages include better utilization of resources and enhanced plate coordination.
