Trueflow Rite TP: The Ideal Workflow for TruePress 344
Automated Management System Organizes Production Tasks to Drive Screen's Digital Offset Press
ROLLING MEADOWS, Ill. Serving a broad range of customers and applications requires a broad range of
solutions. That's why Screen developed a version of the popular PDF/JDF-based Trueflow workflow
management system specifically for the TruePress 344 digital offset press.
Trueflow Rite TP provides automated workflow management necessary to guarantee the best performance
from the TruePress 344. It contains features that have been developed to prepare files and related information
to create output files for the press.
The TruePress 344 is independent of the front-end workflow. It works with any RIP system that outputs 1-bit
TIFF files, including Trueflow Rite TP. These files are ideal for four-color printing separations. The 1-bit TIFF
data ensures that output will match the intent of the designer, right down to the fonts and image resolution.
Trueflow Rite TP features PDF-based RIP operation, trapping and other basic workflow functions. It easily
handles standard PDF data files. Imposed PDF and PostScript data can be used in job files.
The graphical user interface (GUI) makes operation fast and simple. The GUI offers on-screen previewing and
thumbnail images of page data during and after processing. It also allows users to monitor job progress from any
For output-ready jobs, operators can use Trueflow Rite TP's hot folders to create fully automated workflow paths.
After the folders are created, operators simply drag and drop the job files into the appropriate hot folder. The
remaining steps related to printing a job are carried out automatically.
Screen (USA) will demonstrate the efficiency of the Trueflow Rite TP workflow in booth #3200 at On Demand
Expo, May 16-18 at the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Philadelphia.
