Optimized data management BackStage already offered a Jobs database: Data copying is no longer required, which eliminates the resulting worries of having to know which file is the master asset and which one was used in which Job order.

Additionally, there is a considerable saving of disk storage space.

For trade shops, a single Job order may be mostly about one design. However, for converters and label printers, Jobs often represent an order of several Products to print. As a result, the converters will get the most benefits from this new tool. For printers ssko data and Job order management is important, the Products tool will bring spectacular ease of use in the daily production.

This new tool in BackStage represents a significant increase in efficiency, time savings and data security, essential for this market sector. Eliminating the need for local file copies, the user interface maps backstabe visualizes the business logic of how prepress production is managed. They confirmed that this new data management tool will deliver great benefits for converters and printers.


It is much easier than searching and copying data throughout the data server. Screen dumps and more detailed information on the new BackStage Products tool can be found in the fact sheet upon request. The new BackStage Viewer is unique in this respect; it supports a wide range of file types, raster or vector. Users can view, analyze and compare files aided by an unlimited zoom function. The product is targeted at packaging and label facilities that conduct prepress QA, including trade and design shops, printers and converters.

Previously, their systems needed a wide range of desktop publishing applications to ekso and check files, but this can now be performed within a single application.

Prepress operators can use BackStage Viewer to analyze versions or variants and thus detect unwelcome differences. They are also able to compare design elements with final repro data, one-up with stepped plate layout and, even, production data with RIPped output.

This application also has a comprehensive channel-matching tool to check files for different separations, and offers alignment tools when the files have assorted horizontal or vertical measurements. It serves so many applications that I will even re-think my QA procedures. This useful tool also fits seamlessly into traditional EskoArtwork ArtPro and Nexus workflows allowing, for example, the comparison of ArtPro one-up files with the digital plate files made by a NexusRIP.

The BackStage Viewer is ideal for all prepress production environments, helping to reduce errors, particularly before files reach the RIP. It provides faster Job throughput by detecting workflow discrepancies upon file arrival, rather than upon output, vastly reducing waste of time, cost and materials.
