speed. This provides the ability to split a job and run it simultaneously on multiple engines, effectively multiplying your
productivity by the number of engines within a cluster.
For documents that contain both color and black-and-white

Take Control of Your Color
Demanding print environments require accurate color
controls. MicroPress offers these controls through its
use of global calibration in multi-engine environments,
the ability to adjust curves if necessary, and the capabilities of EFI Spot-On™ to help with matching and
adjusting spot colors.
Honoring a corporate branding identity is important in any
production environment. With the color controls available
within a MicroPress server, accurate simulation of named

colors is no longer guesswork.
With the ability to produce colors the right way the first
time, jobs can get out the door sooner, without sacrificing
color control for centralized management of your production
environment or corporate workgroup.
