Geert De Proost, director solutions marketing of Esko, said, "In a fast-moving market, we need to ensure our solutions are ahead of the game. With that in mind, we are constantly looking to make improvements to all aspects of our software solutions. They may be large or small, but the aim is the same: we want to make sure that our customers receive the utmost in value for their investment in the Esko software platform and software maintenance.”

Among the key highlight of the update is the inclusion of hyper-modern packaging editor in ArtPro 64-bit and its availability of a macOS-supported 64-bit version.

The new release also features ArtPro+ action lists in the automation engine. 

The newest version of Esko software platform has ensured full compatibility of all plug-ins with Adobe Creative Cloud 2019, including Studio, DeskPack, and Dynamic Content.

He said, “We carefully consider market trends and customer feedback, and these shape many of our improvements. This release is no different. Our overall aim is to ensure customers have the right tools and capabilities to strengthen their efficiency and profitability.”

Another highlight of the update is that the imaging engine now includes In-RIP preparations for viewing. This allows users to control the quality of ripped files on the fly, during the ripping process. This eliminates waiting times and frees up capacity. 

“This is particularly important in high-volume converter and pre-media operations that increasingly need to manage a higher volume of label and flexo short-run, fast-turnaround jobs,” added De Proost.
