Elpical showcases full Claro image optimization product line at IFRA 2010
Giesbeek, The Netherlands, Wednesday 15 September - Elpical Software, a growing provider of unique image optimization and workflow solutions for publishers, agencies and large enterprises will show its complete Elpical Claro range of automatic image enhancement solutions at the IFRA 2010 expo from 4 to 6 October (Hall A1, booth 1244). Using Claro's Individual Image Analysis technology it is possible to automatically optimize high volumes of images while routing problematic images to operators for manual checking or correction. Close integration into Adobe® Photoshop® and Adobe® InDesign® allows seamless integration at any point in the workflow.
"When thinking about automatic image optimization," comments John de Jong, Managing Director of Elpical Software, "people believe they will have to choose between speed and quality. With the Claro product line that is not the case: its image analysis engine is smart enough to filter out troublesome images so that they can be reviewed individually in Adobe Photoshop. Our plug-in offers convenient side-by-side comparison of the original image and the processed result. It couldn't be easier."
On the Elpical booth, visitors get a personal, hands-on demonstration of the power and flexibility of Elpical Claro. The full product line consists of the following products:
Used by designers, agencies and other small workgroups creating image-heavy or large publications such as catalogs and annual reports, the Claro Layout InDesign plug-in optimizes the quality, crop and size of images with the click of a button, without leaving InDesign.
Highly configurable, Claro Premedia enables hot folder based optimization of high volumes of images. As a true client-server application Claro Premedia has full InDesign integration to allow image optimization in InDesign while off-loading the heavy-duty work to the server running Premedia.
As automation module, Claro Single enables seamless integration into workflow systems such as DFlux, Enfocus Switch or ACCHSH PuzzleFlow for hands-off automation of image optimization.
