Tiff Pager

Six Major Features of TIFF-Pager

1. Online Zoomable Proofs.

2. Composite Color Proofs.

3. Progressive Overlay Proofs.

4. Tiling for output.

5. ROOM Workflow.

6. JDF Enabled De-imposition – Application or Command Line Interface

TIFF-Pager is the indispensable Swiss Army Knife for either screened one bit TIFF or contone color TIFF files or Barco Len file format at any size and resolution. With virtually an unlimited feature set, TIFF-Pager enables capabilities such as high resolution online proofing, de-imposition of final signatures, de-screening for color proofing, covert to PDF for post rip workflow, and much more.

Creating Online Zoomable Proofs

TIFF-Pager Zoomable Proof

TIFF-Pager is configured to collect, colorize, combine, and generate the special I-Zoom format that can be viewed in any web browser. Color accurate remote proofing of full high resolution “dot for dot” TIFF data in any browser! This seemly impossible feat is not only possible – but very affordable! Proof Accuracy of both content and color insures that what your clients see is exactly what will be printed.


Creating Composite Color Proofs:

TIFF-Pager-2-Composite

TIFFPager is configured to monitor a folder of 1 bit TIFF files and look for job naming characteristics. Collecting a set of files representing a complete job it colorizes the files and combines them into composite color with downsampling as needed. TIFFPager can create output as PDF, EPS, or JPEG at any resolution with high quality de-screening to give color manageable results. Proofing the same screened data that will appear on a plate, TIFFPager maintains the original screening, dot patterns, rosettes, data integrity, color separation, color quality, image artifacts, content, imposition, etc. for proofing prior to exposing plates or running a press.


Creating Progressive Color Overlay Proofs

TIFF-Pager-3-Progressive

TIFFPager can be configured to automatically monitor hot folders picking up 1 bit TIFF files and then to search the file name or internal TIFF Tags to determine the ink represented by this file. Then using an extensive, user editable, table of ink colors it creates PDF files of each 1 bit TIFF that is colorized for the ink. These files then drop into a hot folder for a printer with clear film loaded. Progressive color overlay proofing enables printers to be able to provide proofing for any type or color of stock by mounting overlay proofs over the material.


Tiling of Impositions for output to smaller devices

TIFF-Pager-6-JDF

 

TIFFPager can be used to load multiple 1 bit TIFF files from larger signatures. Then multiple “Output Packages” can be specified for clipping sections of the signatures into smaller pieces, with or without overlaps. These pieces are then output as PDF at full resolution and are ready to expose the signature on smaller devices. Tiled printing, known as rasterbating, allows you to print out a drawing greater in size than your printer can handle.


Post Rip Workflow for Imposition

TIFF-Pager-5-Impose

ROOM “Rip Once Output Many” bypasses the headaches of imposing “application files” and then trying to deal with rip – trap – correction cycles. Instead rip and trap individual pages and let TIFFPager create imposition ready PDF or EPS “digital film” files. These files are easier to proof, easier to correct and easier to impose. Find problems with jobs early and insure that jobs will output reliably and accurately when you are ready.


JDF Enabled De-Imposition

TIFF-Pager-6-JDF

In addition to 1 bit TIFF files, TIFFPager can also work with JDF files from popular Imposition packages and automatically associate JDF and TIFF files sets based on Job, Signature, and Side naming parameters. It then will crop and rotate each ‘Page’ out of the signature, colorize, down-sample and save as I-Zoom, PDF, EPS and/or JPG. Digital proofing based on JDF input to “DE-IMPOSE” imposition signature files created from any workflow, TIFFPager reads the imposition data contained inside of a JDF file to correlate between the ripped signature files and the final cut-out pages to generate pages as PDF or I-Zoom! Guarantee that pages have been imposed in the correct sequence with the correct orientation and correct size.

TIFFPager is the indispensable Swiss Army Knife for either screened one bit TIFF or contone color TIFF files or Barco Len file format at any size and resolution. With virtually an unlimited feature set, TIFFPager enables capabilities such as high resolution online proofing, de-imposition of final signatures, de-screening for color proofing, page composition for post rip workflow, and much much more.

TIFFPager is a fully automated, JDF enabled application that can process up to 16 full res 1 bit or contone TIFF files from most any source, cutting, snipping, folding, combining, colorizing, down sampling and producing single or multiple output files in I-Zoom, PDF, EPS, and/or JPEG format. TIFFPager works with any workflow that produces TIFF files and supports all popular compression schemes. It is able to work with any size and resolution and is extremely fast and reliable. TIFFPager includes its own Folder Watcher feature for automation – and it can be easily integrated into existing solutions using the powerful command line feature.
