If you’ve come this far, you’re probably wondering how HYBRID Software prepress technologies can unlock your prepress operators’ potential. There are far too many to mention here. But, we can say this:
HYBRID Software prepress technologies utilize a number of differentiators: a pure PDF workflow, browser based HTML applications, ties to MIS via XML and JDF, and features that are typically much more versatile than similar tools.
HTML5 applications are much more open, flexible and powerful. Simply put, HYBRID Software systems can be operated from any web browser. No applets or plug-ins are required. Other apps may require you to physically work from a dedicated workstation, one user at a time. With HYBRID Software, work can be distributed to many workstations—even at home. No need to worry about inconsistent work because companies can set all their preferences, so everyone is operating under the same, standardized set of rules.
Because they are open, distributed, PDF-based systems, they accept print-ready PDF files from all standard graphics applications. And, they can deliver files to virtually any printing, platemaking, or cutting device, while collecting lots of metadata such as job specifications—not possible with other file formats, like TIFF.
With HYBRID Software MIS integration, job specs can be fed automatically from business systems, capturing and returning production data (actual vs. estimated).
