Fiery unveils Command WorkStation 7 

New features integrated

Digital front-end developer Fiery has announced the next generation of Command WorkStation, its centralised job management interface that connects to all Fiery-driven cut-sheet, large-format and high-speed inkjet printers.

Version 7 boasts a range of new features, including an integrated ColorGuard client, which helps streamline colour verification tasks and track colour quality. Users can now initiate cloud-based colour process control tasks directly in Fiery Command WorkStation without toggling between applications.   

Fiery sales and marketing VP John Henze said: “With direct integration to ColorGuard, operators no longer need to step out of the Command WorkStation interface to action colour process control tasks.  

“Within one interface, companies can monitor the colour quality of multiple Fiery driven print devices to ensure they produce colors that meet customer expectations.”  

Also included is Spot Pro enhancements, which allow users to more easily control how spot colours are reproduced, ensuring conformance to brand owner and industry standards and making fine-tuning, editing, and printing colour variations easier. 

Print Scheduler provides integrated job scheduling and planning, allowing operators to slot jobs into a dynamic 24-hour window to best align with equipment availability and customer deadlines. Job History lets users quickly locate the correct past job for further printing, saving employees time and ensuring accurate reprints.    

Nick Fay, digital manager for US-based Colortech, an integrated marketing, design and print supplier, said: "I’m very pleased to see that the client functions are now built into Command WorkStation 7. The new Spot Pro enhancements, particularly Variations, will help us better serve our colour-critical customer base, and the new Job History feature will help us identify the correct version of a job for reprints.”   

WorkStation 7 also permits customers to sign up for a free Fiery Account, which will enable them to download Fiery software and back up settings and licences. Customers can take advantage of cloud-based production analytics with Fiery IQ to control day-to-day print operations, improve ROI, minimise costs, and boost profits.
