Kodak unveils InSite Prepress Portal System 7

kodakinsitrportal7a-inThe latest version of InSite is built on HTML5 and eliminates bottlenecks while extending its automation, security and performance capabilities. By removing the requirement for the Java Platform, a third-party plugin, Kodak InSite Prepress Portal 7 now delivers new features including HTML5 system diagnostics and a re-designed HTML5-based Smart Review user interface. The technology helps printers extend workflow automation capabilities while reducing turnaround time and costs by delivering simple, real-time access and collaboration with customers. It’s equipped to securely integrate with Kodak Prinergy Workflow and to support enhanced control over the prepress process. This enables customers, prepress operators and service representatives to submit jobs, track progress, collaborate on changes and review and approve work anywhere, any time.

It gives users additional freedom by providing a real-time, user-friendly experience with the new HTML5-based Smart Review. The system automatically track all activities – including job submissions, change requests and approvals or rejections – and alerts customers and prepress staff of issues for quicker correction and page updates. The removal of the Java Platform requirement is a “significant enhancement, allowing customers to engage with a secure, streamlined platform for managing proofs with reduced technical support. The HTML5 platform delivers a consistent interface across the widest range of platforms and web-browser environments,” said Kodak.
