Toronto (ON), Canada - Zevrix Solutions today announces the public beta release of Output Factory Server 3, a major upgrade to company's output automation tool for Adobe InDesign. Output Factory Server automates InDesign production workflows by processing files from watched hot folders. The software offloads printing and exporting from InDesign to a central system leaving operator workstations free from the output process.
The new version incorporates LinkOptimizer, the company's image workflow automation solution for InDesign, directly to Output Factory Server. Long requested by LinkOptimizer customers, the new version will be able to serve unlimited InDesign users on a network from a single installation via watched hot folders. LinkOptimizer users will now take advantage of the existing and time-proven hot folder facilities of Output Factory Server that automates workflows of printers, publishers, ad agencies, and prepress houses worldwide for well over a decade.
LinkOptimizer automates complex image manipulation tasks and allows users to reduce the size of InDesign links, convert image colors and formats, run Photoshop actions and much more. And as LinkOptimizer becomes a part of Output Factory Server, users will be empowered to combine LinkOptimizer processing with standard output workflows such as PDF, print, TIFF and other formats. For example, the app will provide an option to resize, convert and relink images by LinkOptimizer - and then export the optimized InDesign file to PDF automatically with no further steps required by the operator. All they need to do is drop InDesign file into a single hot folder that invokes the multi-workflow processing.
The final combined product branded as Output Factory Server 3 will also enable InDesign workgroups to convert image link formats, resize and crop images to their InDesign dimensions, output InDesign layers and their combinations as single files, assign variable file names, perform automatic preflighting, issue email notifications and much more.
