PitStop Server 12
- Manual editing tools such as PitStop Pro are amazingly powerful in correcting last-minute problems in PDF files and making them suitable for production. PitStop Server 12 takes that same power to an automated level; using convenient watched folder architecture, it allows you to automate inspection and correction of PDF files.Automated preflight & correction
PitStop Server automates optimising and increasing the quality of PDF files for different purposes like printing, web, trouble-free viewing on iPad or even long-term archiving. PitStop Server offers significant opportunities to automate your production processes as it brings editing and correction to the next level without requiring user interaction. Embed fonts, convert or remap colours, renumber pages, set correct page boxes, apply stamps, insert cover pages, move, rotate, and scale objects — these are just a few of the possibilities. Built-in transparency flattening options allow you to ensure consistent results when outputting to different devices.
An extensive preflight engine enables you to check for potential problems e.g. font problems, low image resolution, colour issues, etc. Ink coverage problems can be detected while taking transparency, overprint settings, overlapping items and layers into account.
PitStop Server can automatically generate a full preflight report that lists all problems found in your files. You can specify XML or annotated PDF reports as well as the same user-friendly preflight reports created in PitStop Pro.
Preflight and corrections can also be driven by job specific information such as JDF or XML job tickets. Fast and correct linking of the PDF with a customer’s job specific requirements makes your service quicker and more accurate. Enfocus gives your company the competitive edge to work smarter and win more business.Integrate PitStop Server in your workflow
PitStop Server 12 fits seamlessly into Enfocus Switch to provide preflighting and auto-correction of PDF files in a more fully automated workflow. Automatically download PDF files from FTP servers or receive them through email, preflight them and notify your customers of problem files — these are only a few of the extended capabilities Switch brings to PitStop Server.
The CLI (command-line interface) included with PitStop Server 12 allows integration of the preflight and auto-correction capabilities with standard settings wherever needed.What’s new?
