The Electronics for Imaging, Inc. (EFI) Connect event, print industry’s leading conference, held from January 17 to 20, 2017, at Wynn Las Vegas has attendees from 37 nations, displaying technology advancements, including the debut of the company’s largest soft-signage printer and new LED, roll-to-roll printers offering market-leading productivity.

The conference, which caters to customers’ evolving needs for information related to market and technology trends, features 8 new educational tracks in an agenda of 200+ classes.

EFI is unveiling version 5 of its Productivity Suite end-to-end workflow offerings at Connect. The company is highlighting next-generation EFI Fiery digital front end (DFE) production technologies that deliver uncompromising quality and productivity in digital print production.

During Connect, EFI is announcing its new VUTEk 5r and 3r printers, which are designed to be the industry’s most technically advanced LED roll-to-roll production offerings. Customers can take advantage of fast-growing soft-signage opportunities using EFI’s largest soft signage printer, the 5.2-metre EFI VUTEk FabriVU 520 launched at Connect.

Both new VUTEk printers on exhibit at Connect feature the latest-version EFI Fiery proServer DFE, which gives users the advantage of fast RIPing, accurate, high-quality colour and robust production management. EFI also is presenting a technology demonstration of a new, 65-inch wide EFI Wide Format LED inkjet hybrid roll/flatbed printer at Connect, showing the continuing evolution of the proven, energy-efficient and versatile ‘cool cure’ platform that has become the industry’s most popular choice for production-speed LED imaging.

This year’s conference will help print operations drive margins, increase throughput and eliminate errors and downtime with comprehensive training offered in MIS/ERP workflows and in components covering e-commerce, shipping, fulfilment, scheduling, imposition, planning and EFI’s new textile software offering. The in-depth technical training in 16 educational tracks includes eight brand new tracks, as well as hands-on sessions, that allow attendees to closely target their specific business challenges.

Attendees are gaining new insights into their digital production workflows at Connect with the range of new and updated EFI Fiery DFE products at the conference. The event features the new Fiery NX server and NX Station for fast RIPing and streamlined cut-sheet production automation; Fiery DFE products for wide- and super-wide-format inkjet proofing and production; and Fiery workflow suite offerings that boost productivity with best-in-class tools for document imposition, assembly, late-stage editing, visual make-ready, prepress automation and more.

The newest version of EFI Fiery Navigator on display simplifies the process of analysing daily digital print operations and long-term trends, delivering actionable business intelligence in a customisable, visual dashboard while providing device management capabilities. (GK)
