FirstPROOF Standard is an entry-level but powerful prepress soft-proofing workflow product that allows for easy tracking, viewing and checking of ripped jobs prior to output. When added to an existing Harlequin, Esko-Graphics, Presstek DI or any TIFF-based RIP it provides a significant improvement in proofing jobs before output.
The high-performance viewing capabilities allow users to efficiently navigate around a job, zooming in and out to check the layout and content. In doing so, users of FirstPROOF Standard can check for basic prepress issues before exposing film, burning plates or worse still printing pages, thus saving valuable time and money.
Amongst the many features is the ability to search for a given job (by name), see a thumbnail of the pages in a job, see the overall ink coverage of each separation (with either ‘0%’ or ‘>0%’ indicating a blank separation or one with just crop marks and color bars), view either a composite of the pages in a job or each separation in a page, delete jobs or separations that are blank or contain errors and output jobs that contain no errors.
