Zevrix Solutions has announced the release of BatchOutput Server 4.6, a feature update to its powerful output workflow automation solution for Adobe InDesign. BatchOutput Server completely automates InDesign output workflow by processing files from hotfolders. The software offloads printing and exporting to PDF and PostScript to a central system leaving operator workstations free from the output process.
The new version can automatically write error logs to a text file which is saved in hotfolders along with the processed InDesign documents. It helps users access the error info directly from their workstations.
"BatchOutput Server is an extremely useful utility for a busy production facility or advertising agency", writes David Creamer in Layers magazine, "It can save lots of time - which equates to money."
BatchOutput Server runs on a standalone Macintosh system that has InDesign installed. It allows to sets up workflows for various output needs (including multiple print, PostScript and PDF output options), which are linked to their own hotfolders on the network. Production artists and prepress operators simply submit InDesign files to the hotfolders. BatchOutput Server automatically outputs the files from its dedicated station, and will auto-activate document fonts as well. The workflow also ensures that correct output settings will be always used.
BatchOutput Server offers the following major features and benefits:
* Process InDesign files and books from hotfolders
* Export files as single pages
* Update modified links automatically
* Variable output file names
* Auto* activate document fonts
* Automatic e* mail notifications of process stages and errors
* Automatic error handling
* Detailed processing logs and visual file tracking
* Easy to install and set up
BatchOutput is also available in a single user version to automate printing and exporting from InDesign on individual stations.
