Modern day OPI (Open Prepress Interface) solutions, such as HELIOS ImageServer, incorporate much more than just OPI image replacement.
Modern pre-press applications like Adobe InDesign are moving to a direct PDF output workflow allowing advanced features like PDF transparency, drop shadows, and embedded XMP metadata. These features are incompatible with today’s PostScript output, but will be fully supported by this HELIOS solution.
DeviceN is needed to preserve spot color information required for a composite printing workflow and for proper PDF generation.
HELIOS ImageServer 2.5 offers complete composite PostScript 3/DeviceN output of all OPI-replaced images which are optimized for in-RIP separation or PDF generation.
