PrintFactory launches Linux compatibility for workflow software suite

May 09, 2019

PrintFactory has launched Linux compatibility for its workflow software suite, becoming the first software provider to offer a fully-supported workflow solution across the three main operating systems - Windows, MacOS and Linux.

The launch of PrintFactory on Linux offers wide-format printers maximum flexibility in the way they work. For example, if prepress operators are using MacOS or Windows workstations, PrintFactory now enables jobs to be simultaneously processed on a Linux server.

Offering advanced processing power, PrintFactory’s Linux compatibility offers an ideal solution for large format printers looking to cluster applications and RIP files on an industrial scale. The open source platform also supports the direct integration of PrintFactory’s RIP application with large format print devices.

Erik Strik, CEO at PrintFactory, commented: “As a team of former wide-format printers, we understand that every print shop works differently. That’s why we’re excited to release PrintFactory on the Linux platform.

“Whether you’re a Linux enthusiast or prefer to work from Mac or Windows, PrintFactory gives large format printers the choice to mix and match operating systems in a way that works for them. For more industrial applications, Linux is ideally suited to work as a RIP server for true clustering capability.

“The launch is the latest development in our strategy to open up opportunities across the wider dealer network. We’re looking forward to meeting wide-format printers and dealers at FESPA Global Print Expo to share how a fully-compatible workflow solution can support better printing and bigger profits.”

PrintFactory provides all the job preparation and colour correction tools required to optimise wide-format print production. The software’s easy-to-use cloud-based workflow connects multiple devices to enable dynamic production scheduling, status reporting and resource management from any connected computer.

Visit PrintFactory on stand B5-G31 at FESPA Global Print Expo in Munich between 14th - 17th May to discover how PrintFactory can support wide-format printers on their journey to maximum productivity and minimum wastage.
