Output management of graphics and image files

today, with the development of network and digital printing in full swing, many graphics and image files can be output in a variety of ways after processing. However, each output device has its own color representation method and corresponding output method. Even for the same device, due to different locations or applicable objects, the output image file can not achieve the desired effect to a large extent, and the image output needs to be standardized management

just as the input compatibility needs to be discussed, for output, we should also carefully analyze the different requirements of each output device. However, it is impossible for us to formulate a set of output schemes for each output device, because such solutions have poor adaptability. If we use the output manager to analyze and monitor the output process, we can achieve automatic, high-quality and well applicable output

the output manager developed by Adobe company is to expand each element of the input source by effectively organizing, optimizing and determining the running route from the page to many rip, imagesetter and proofer, so as to realize image reproduction on different devices

the output manager has the following features:

1 Automated workflow management provides customized, print based processing

2. The user-defined sequence can be output in an organized way, and can automatically run according to the process

3. The visual status of the interface can display the status of the printed matter anywhere in the whole operation network

4. The tracking function of the color separation process can ensure that all layers of the printed matter are accurately imaged on the same recording equipment, even if they were printed separately

5. Load balancing allows rip, imaging devices, and printers to be used to the maximum extent possible

6. The page option functions of make-up, make-up, and OPI can improve the production efficiency and ensure the continuity of work

7. An automatic cleanup program reduces the time it takes to repeatedly process files

8. Selective raid and aggregation capabilities reduce the squeeze between potential systems in the production process

9. The large-scale industrial standard structure can meet the requirements of production

the output manager, combined with the aps3850 imaging device series of AutoLogic, can provide a powerful production system. Once integrated into the open system structure of AutoLogic, the output manager can make the output equipment run at full speed to process the printing to be completed

at the same time, the output manager can also drive imagesetters from Agfa, ECRM, Linotype hell, purup, Gerber, Krause and other manufacturers

in addition to adjusting prints between output devices, the output manager can also optimize prints according to delivery time

during file input, the output manager can process the PS, tiff or PDF files provided by the associated application package, disk or remote site. Prints from remote sites should be rip first. In order to ensure that no fonts or graphics are lost by using APS, prints should be proofed before transmission or imaging. The client of the output manager can display the working status of prints. Each print arriving at the output manager is recorded in a related database system (Microsoft SQL Server), so as to ensure that it can run according to the required steps. Management information such as document source, submission time, optimization and target imaging group is recorded in the input process and can be used for output

the monitor of the output manager can display the status of prints and hardware devices. Prints and equipment are represented by images. The color connection between the equipment and the display can display the running route of the printing product being processed. If there is a problem with a system device, the device will be turned off, and the printed matter will be automatically input to other image devices. This production process is monitored through dynamic, controllable and complete sequences, which are related to printing, equipment-based, or can reflect the operation or publication of printing

these sequences can reflect the production process and also monitor the work to be handled. Each sequence displays three states: running, stable and completed. The running status indicates the prints being processed and the prints to be processed. These prints are represented in green. If the number of prints being processed in the sequence exceeds a certain range, the selection range of this setting can be used to improve the feedback rate. Prints can be fixed manually or automatically to wait for output in a stable sequence. The completion status reflects the prints that have been successfully output or voided. These prints will be marked automatically. Before the final output, the printed matter can be input into the pre inspection software of APS for error analysis

by defining production steps, the output manager can optimize the printing products, so as to ensure that the most urgent printing products can be processed first. Optimization can be set manually to enhance the control of imaging input. The event prompter enables the operator to execute the program, describe the language and group the files, which are based on the system or application project

prints can be automatically deleted as required after output. Another situation is that you should help those beyond your ability as much as possible. You can turn to those well adapted automatic removal procedures, such as deleting by pre-defined daily or weekly removal times

as long as it is added to the APS Platform Manager (a comprehensive AutoLogic workflow solution), the page can be controlled in the production process. APS platform manager can provide the visual status of each page, and track each upcoming and separated page according to the target layout required by the user

in the output phase, the output manager can balance the unloading of output, feed back the status of output devices, and ensure that all levels of each page are transferred to the same output device

unloading balance can transfer the same number of prints to each output device: the output manager transfers the same number of layers to each device, and adjusts the hue and some chemical changes or recovers silver on the imaging device

the output manager includes a powerful color separation and tracking capability to ensure that all color layers of a page (even if the printing time is several hours apart) can reach the same imaging device correctly

the output manager can also group the output sources. The rip with faster processing speed can be used for high-resolution final output, while those with older and slower processing speed can be used for low-resolution proofing output. This can make full use of current resources without eliminating the original hardware equipment

combined with APS 32 series imaging devices, the output manager can determine the required rip and imaging devices, make better use of various devices, and make it easier for operators to make decisions

The OPI of the

output manager stores high-resolution images and can exchange graphics during output. On the basis of receiving high-resolution images, it can generate low-resolution image files for us to pray for Malaysia Airlines to meet the needs of the edition workstation. It supports high-resolution image formats, including EPS, EPS with JPEG compression, JPEG (JFIF), DCS 1.0 and 2.0, and 1-bit, 8-bit, 24 bit and 32-bit TIFF 6.0

using the preset function of TIFF view on PC and pict view on MAC, view files can be generated in EPS format

PDF files now play an extremely important role in the output process. The output manager supports PDF files in three ways. Like postscript, the output manager transfers PDF files to the imaging device for fast output. Then, convert postscript to PDF format for fast delivery, document output, network output or other purposes. Finally, the output manager can generate low resolution view files in PDF format. This process takes into account the conversion of PDF files to page output


output manager supports the industry standard of Intel ® Pentium ® hardware platform and can fully meet workload requirements. The output manager runs under the windows operating system and supports all commonly used network protocols. The output manager also supports mirroring software from third parties, documents for security support, or external connections to raid systems

output manager aggregation system technology makes full use of aggregation technology to allocate data and process, thus reducing the extrusion collision in the production process. In case of hardware problems, the rest can still work

output management is a work that integrates various elements in the input and output process. The output manager provides a very important method for output phase control. When outputting images through printers, printers and networks, the development and utilization of a series of high-performance plastics and composites such as low-density plastics, micro foamed plastics and carbon fiber/long glass fiber reinforced composites should be aimed at different output requirements, so as to significantly improve the effect of vehicle weight reduction, adjust the setting of options in the output manager, and achieve the consistency of input and output
