Latest Version of KODAK PREPS Software Further Enhances Productivity, Adds Job Ganging Tool for Increased Press Sheet Utilization


Rochester, NY,.- With more than 30,000 copies of KODAK PREPS Imposition Software in use at customer sites around the globe, the release of version 5.3 brings digital and offset printers another powerful capability for the efficient creation of imposition files.

PREPS Software now includes a new ganging feature that arranges job pages on virtual press sheets in preparation for plate production. Prepress professionals can arrange pages of different sizes in a layout and use the step and repeat feature to fill an area with copies of selected pages. The ganging function allows printers to run multiple jobs together on the same press sheet to maximize sheet and plate space.

“The ganging tool in PREPS Software version 5.3 enables much faster arranging of job pages on press sheets, helping save even more time and resources during the complex imposition process,” said Nick Benkovich, PREPS Product Manager at Kodak.

JDF-certified PREPS Imposition Software allows users to impose multiple pages of a publication or newspaper in a logical order so the end product prints and folds correctly. PREPS Software automates imposition, a time consuming and error prone task, and supports POSTSCRIPT, PDF, EPS, DCS and TIFF source files. It works with all KODAK and many major third party workflow systems.

“In our prepress department, we are always pushing the envelope when it comes to testing the capabilities of new systems and software, and we are never satisfied,” said Peter Richetti, Prepress Supervisor for Pictorial Offset Corporation in New Jersey and a new PREPS Software user. “PREPS Software has given us a whole new set of tools to use when attacking our everyday problems. New solutions present themselves, where before we just had to live with workarounds. PREPS Software is letting us do things with layouts that weren’t possible before and, for a printing company, this is a good change.”
