EyeC and HYBRID Software have expanded their successful collaboration. The direct integration of the web-based artwork proofreading system EyeC ProofText into CLOUDFLOW by Hybrid Software enables maximum efficiency in the artwork creation process.
The partnership with Hybrid Software aims at the joint development of web-based SAAS and on-premise software solutions for the graphic industry. Both companies have been working together on various levels for many years to improve pre-press processes with the help of smart productivity tools. In order to meet the ever-increasing demands of customers, the latest project focuses on the complex process of artwork creation.
To do this, ProofText uses Mako™ Core technology from Global Graphics Software to process PDF documents. Designed as the ultimate software development kit (SDK), Mako Core uses a document object model (DOM) to control colour, fonts, text, images, vector content, and metadata. Through so-called DOM APIs, content can be queried and edited across formats and platforms, and digital documents can be modified. The highly automated, web-based artwork proofreading system EyeC ProofText reliably detects and evaluates deviations within the revision check, including content and font style, within a single process step thanks to an intelligent algorithm.
The combination of the two companies’ technologies enables complete automation of repeat jobs in a fluid workflow. In addition to shorter processing times and the avoidance of costly errors, this ensures that the final product is of the highest quality right from the artwork management process. At the same time, the digital workflow principle optimises quality assurance and saves resources by reducing manual effort. Even with very complex cases, the system combination offers up to 50 % faster performance.
