RIP, color management, and workflow for large format print production

Precise, productive, profitable print production

Introducing the Fiery® XF 8 digital front end to your wide or superwide print production is the easiest way to achieve superior color results, gain maximum productivity, and profit from business insights — all with the unrivaled power of Fiery Command WorkStation® digital print job management.

Overview


As a digital print producer, you want the easiest route to the best color and print quality, produced in the least amount of time. Operators need a workflow solution that is adaptable to cater for different job types, and allows them to automate repeat jobs and repetitive tasks. In a successful print facility, you need to be able to deploy both your technology and your workforce as flexibly as possible — plus you need to keep learning curves to a minimum. Fiery XF 8 delivers all that and more to your large format print business.

Unrivaled print job management

Fiery XF 8 comes with a new user experience — Fiery Command WorkStation, the world’s most popular interface for the management, layout, and editing of digital print jobs. It conveniently connects to multiple Fiery servers at a time — whether driving inkjet or cutsheet printers — and connects multiple printers to a single Fiery XF server for truly unified print job management through a single interface. The visual Fiery Job Editor allows you to apply job-specific settings on the fly, or to change properties beyond workflow defaults. The Fiery Job Center delivers unrivaled print job management, with the same power and usability for both Microsoft® Windows® and Apple® macOS® users. Learn more.

Maximum productivity and throughput

Exclusive Fiery Accelerated System Technology (FAST RIP), now available for Fiery XF users, accelerates RIPping speeds by an average of 5 times. The CUDA-enabled FAST Processing Option speeds up file processing further by up to 13 times and an average of 6 times*. Fiery XF 8 has automation levels to suit everyone, and a customizable interface that can be tailored to suit the way each individual prefers to operate. Its award-winning cross-platform client interface reduces learning curves, and creates production efficiencies in mixed-technology print rooms resulting in maximum productivity and throughput. Learn more.

* FAST Processing performance gains are dependent on the FAST Processing level used. Factors mentioned are based on the latest Fiery proServer Premium configuration. FAST Processing acceleration is applied on top of FAST RIP.

Ultimate color, quality and control

Proof-grade color controls and verification mean industry standard compliant color results — no matter the application or product being produced. 100% Fiery-developed color management using ICC technology, combined with sophisticated iterative spot and process color optimization routines deliver superior color. Its screening algorithms are engineered to maximize both print quality and printer performance, providing ultimate color, quality and control, in the least amount of time. Learn more.
