Why HP Indigo EPM Preflight Solution?

Enhanced Productivity Mode (EPM) uses advanced color management techniques on suitable jobs to reduce the number of colors required for printing. This significantly increases press speed, ensurse faster turnaround and lower production cost. With the HP Indigo EPM Kit , users don't have to print off a CMYK and CMY versions of the job to visually inspect and determine whether it is suitable for EPM printing. The EMP Kit will inspect and route files for EPM print production automatically. This tremendously eliminates the time, trouble and resources on sorting print ready PDF files to EPM or non-EPM hot folders.

  • Ink Coverage- checks the ink coverage percentage along the page
  • Font-Size and Line Thickness- measures the font size along with fine lines between original and EPM file
  • Color Differences- Checks for amount of black used in the job and Chroma (gray level)
