    • PrimeCenter Version 2

      PrimeCenter helps wide format digital printers optimize job preparation for printing by increasing operator productivity, saving time spent on layouts and nesting, optimizing nesting and media usage, and increasing the automation of tasks.

      PrimeCenter sits upstream of your RIP station. Schema of Caldera workflow Orders (or “jobs”) are first submitted to PrimeCenter, either manually, or automatically from a web shop or ERP software. At this stage, prepress operators can thoroughly prepare their files with a wide range of advanced options— media parameters, preflighting, cut contours, print bleed, margins, nesting, cutter registration marks, annotations, double-sided printing, and more. Once the files are ready, send ready-to-print & ready-to-cut files to your RIP software to streamline your entire production.

      What's new in Version 2

      Inspect your layouts before production

      From the Print file options module, manually or automatically export a PDF report of your layouts for inspection before production.
      PDF reports include the images, number of copies, media, size, and various metadata to help you save time identifying and tracking jobs.

      New URL in XML job tickets

      HTTP links are now supported as input file paths. You can load distant HTTP files via XML job tickets for easier automation. .

      Preserve job order in nesting

      This new feature gives operators more flexibility in job management. By using specific metadata, jobs can be grouped and prioritized automatically to facilitate the dispatch of customers' orders.


      Fixups in input XML job ticket​

      Operators can now indicate the fixups to apply directly in the input XML job ticket. This improvement grants more flexibility in automated workflows and reduces the number of recipes to manage in PrimeCenter.
