The new Command WorkStation version, to be demonstrated at EFI Engage global online users’ event, gives customers the power to produce higher quality print with fewer mistakes, while ensuring that their EFI Fiery investments continue to deliver exceptional value.

“Since the early 1990s, and across millions of installations, EFI Fiery solutions have improved digital print production through both increased productivity and exceptional color quality,” said John Henze, vice-president, sales and marketing, EFI Fiery. “With this EFI Fiery Command WorkStation release, we continue to deliver on that promise in a big way, from job creation through finishing.”

A key enhancement to Fiery Command WorkStation in this release is easy access to EFI IQ, a suite of standard and optional cloud applications that connect people, processes, and print devices to enable better, data-driven decisions for print businesses. Creating an EFI IQ account is now faster and easier and can be done directly from Fiery Command WorkStation for instant access to production analytics, notification features and more.

As the print job management interface for Fiery digital front ends (DFEs), the new Command WorkStation version 6.6 makes printing more productive and powerful. In addition to its new cloud capabilities with EFI IQ for data analysis and metrics, key enhancements in this latest release include:

  • More advanced job search capabilities for finding jobs based on multiple search criteria
  • A new tool – Raster Curve Editor – that enables operators to perform late-stage color edits to jobs directly from the job properties screen
  • Easier editing of spot colors in Fiery Spot Pro while working within other Fiery Command WorkStation applications
  • Support for the EFI ES-3000 color measurement Instrument, supporting single-scan measurements in M1 and M2 modes with faster and more accurate readings
