Enfocus app updates
Enfocus today unveiled several updates to PitStop Server, Instant Barcode, and Instant PDF, bringing a number of new features and enhancements. PitStop Server 4.5 now features a completely reworked user interface, due to popular demand, giving users easy access to hot folder setups, files in process, and the comprehensive history log. Using powerful control methods, users can process entire folder in either a hierarchical or flattened fashion. New users can purchase PitStop Server 4.5 for 2500 Euros (~$3700 USD).
Instant Barcode 1.5 (250 Euro, ~$370) allows Adobe Illustrator users to verify, fix, and read barcodes, as well as generate preflight reports in text, HTML, or XML. Users can measure and validate existing barcodes by swiping the mouse cursor over the code, and Instant Barcode will provide visual feedback on the quality of the barcode.
Lastly, Instant PDF 4.1 (300 Euro, ~$450) provides full compatibility with Adobe CS3, allowing InDesign and Illustrator CS3 customers to use the "Save as Certified PDF..." menu option. Files can also easily be sent for print through email, Instant PDF 4.1 features improved email server account settings, making it possible to enter user names and passwords to connect to the server.
