Kodak Prinergy 8.4 connects with Canon’s PRISMAsync Print Server v7.2

A quick method to set up and monitor print jobs

Kodak Prinergy Workflow system

On 24 February 2020, Kodak announced the integration between its Prinergy Workflow 8.4 and Canon’s PRISMAsync Print Server v7.2. The new integration provides Prinergy users a quick, seamless, and efficient method to set up, control, and monitor print jobs.

With this new connectivity, Prinergy Setup can receive device properties from the PRISMAsync Print Server and import the Canon digital press’s media and substrate library. Prinergy Job Ticket Editor for the PRISMAsync Print Server enables users to define print parameters as needed and save them for later use. Furthermore, Prinergy Track records all print jobs on the Canon’s print server. Most of the setting for the queued jobs were sent from Prinergy to the Canon print server can be changed.

“Kodak’s goal is to provide customers access to the Prinergy automated production workflow for controlling all their print processes. This connectivity means that Canon production presses can now be efficiently controlled using our industry-leading Prinergy Workflow solution,” commented Todd Bigger, president Kodak Software Division and vice president, Eastman Kodak Company.

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.
