EFI and Canon Europe have announced that the next-generation Fiery platform, System 9 R2, is powering the new flagship Canon imagePRESS C7010VP, C6010VP and C6010 color presses aimed at the high-end production market. The three Fiery servers, named imagePRESS Server A3200, A2200 and A1200, coupled with the new Canon presses, ensure customers the highest productivity and most vivid color reproduction with new color tools, support of Adobe PDF Print Engine v2 (APPE) for pure PDF workflows, and improved JDF integration. The Fiery-driven imagePRESS C7010VP is on display in the Canon stand at Ipex 2010.

The new Fiery technology boasts more than a 30% increase in speed over the previous generation platform driven by new software and hardware innovations. Its new “Spool-RIP-Print Simultaneously” capability guarantees the Fiery server spools, RIPs and prints a single multiple page job or multiple jobs at the same time to ensure maximum throughput and increased productivity.

Fiery servers maximize the imagePRESS engines’ color gamut, and a new Fiery Image Enhance feature improves the output quality of digital photos by applying image specific corrections such as red eye removal, cast correction and tone adjustments. Its automated workflow saves prepress time by eliminating lengthy image editing and file manipulation tasks while ensuring photos look their best.

The new Canon-Fiery combinations will be available in October 2010.
