ROCHESTER, NY—Version 5.0 of the Kodak Insite prepress portal system offers a series of new features to enhance collaboration and productivity among prepress operators, print buyers, and service representatives. The user interface in the latest version provides a new look, designed for performance, flexibility, and ease of use, and includes a new version of the Kodak Smart Review Proofing Client.
Print providers can use the Themes feature to customize individual elements of the Insite prepress portal’s user interface, such as the header, colors, and contact information. A more personalized experience can be created for users to see the logo, terminology, and other brand attributes of their companies when logging on to their site.
A new Smart Review feature allows pages in a job to be verified for confirmation and review of required changes. The Compare function enables two pages to be viewed side by side, along with a third image that shows all of the differences between the two. Differences can be displayed in a variety of ways, including the ability to zoom in on a page to see particular areas in greater detail.
User roles make it easy to manage how users interact with the system. Roles define a collection of user rights and access permissions that determine what options can be seen in the user interface, the actions that can be formed and what jobs and pages can be accessed. User roles provide a flexible tool to define how different types of customers and users participate in the review, approval, and production workflow.
Other features include the ability to group pages and preview new pages. Enhanced Search features provide various options for finding all work in progress, reducing the time it takes to locate jobs. See kodak.com.
