HELIOS supports Quark 6
HELIOS Software has updated its server-based image replacement and conversion solution to support QuarkXPress 6, as well as Quark 4/5 (including Japanese versions). The HELIOS OPI TuneUp XTension enables full QuarkXPress OPI workflow support and allows working with foreground and background colorized images as well as DCS-2 images containing spot colors, ensuring proper separation for composite (in-RIP DeviceN) and separated PostScript output or PDF generation using the HELIOS ImageServer image replacement; and the HELIOS Preview XTension allows creating preview files of QuarkXPress 4/5/6 documents. Both are available for free download for ImageServer users with software upgrade service.
Utilizing the XTension, local and remote Web based users can preview QuarkXPress documents from creation to final output, without needing access to the application, documents, fonts, or images. Previews can be viewed via any Web browser using the included Web server CGI to publish directories with document previews. Full remote file viewing, management, and transfer is provided by the optional HELIOS WebShare, for easy and secure remote collaboration, using any Web browser.
These new XTensions are components of HELIOS ImageServer 2.5 (formerly EtherShare OPI). ImageServer includes OPI image replacement, server-based ICC color management, color separation, and proof printing capabilities, as well as server-based image repurposing with conversion of image file format, resolution, color space, and compression, for web and print needs.
