Konica Minolta ushers into software-defined printing

AccurioPro software platform offers end-to-end production automation and integrating the best features of in-house and cloud-based software

The imaging & printing landscapes have undergone huge transformation where software not only streamlines the typical chores related with workflow applications, but a hell lot of other possibilities are explored and executed for making every aspect of automation truly sophisticated. In fact, with print service providers (PSPs) aggressively engaged in upgrading as well as adding new services and applications to cater to the next generation demands of customers, the software defines printing regime becomes pivotal for seamless and streamlined business operations. Efforts are also being made for deriving optimum use out of cloud technologies for making the imaging & printing tasks well controlled and nicely managed which defy constraints posed by time and space.
It is this context, which has made Konica Minolta, the leading provider of MFPs (multi function printers) as well as production printing systems, to come out with highly evolved AccurioPro software platform—offering end-to-end production automation and integrating the best features of in-house and cloud-based software. The solution has specifically been tailored for being modular (pay only for the components needed), flexible (integrates with other common graphic arts software), scalable (supports small-to-large operations), and comprehensive (features beyond prepress to incorporate colour management and finishing).
The AccurioPro brings about the JDF (job definition format) making interoperability with existing commercial workflows like Agfa Apogee, Kodak Prinergy, and Screen Equios quite easy. One of the salient features named, AccurioPro Conductor, has been integrated for making the printing tasks centralised and intelligent in terms of better output management. Job specs (via JDF) can be leveraged from a print MIS (management information system) to effectively and efficiently load-balance production across a fleet of digital presses without operators’ intervention. The conductor can also support finishing automation with the possibility for out-of-the-box integration due to a unique JDF converter that eliminates differences between vendors that are often hurdles to integration.
On the other hand, the AccurioPro Cloud Eye incorporated in the solution, is for remote management and administration of colour quality and standards, and is particularly useful for multi-site quality control. The AccurioPro Cloud Eye helps printing businesses in day-to-day colour control, sharing colour data across devices, ICC profile creation, and reporting to ensure devices are within tolerance.
