Zevrix Solutions has announced BatchOutput Server 4.2.4, an update to
its powerful output workflow automation solution for Adobe InDesign.
Originally developed for a major magazine publisher in the United
States to free up their operator computers from outputting InDesign
files, the software automates InDesign output by processing files
from hotfolders.

BatchOutput Server offloads printing and exporting to PDF and
PostScript to a central system leaving operator workstations free
from the output process. Under this workflow, production artists and
prepress operators simply submit files to hotfolders that reside on
the network. BatchOutput Server automatically outputs the files from
its dedicated station using hotfolder settings, and will
auto-activate document fonts as well. Operator workstations will
never again be tied up by the output process.

BatchOutput allows users to output InDesign documents as single
pages, update links automatically and compose complex variable file
names. As a powerful workgroup solution, the software offers
customizable e-mail notifications, detailed logs, automatic error
handling and the detailed feedback during processing. Supervisors and
operators can monitor all BatchOutput Server activities from their
stations using the special Monitor application without the need to
walk up to the server station.

The new update improves error reporting of permission and network
related events, and introduces compatibility with Mac OS X 10.6 Snow

BatchOutput Server can be purchased for $699.95 from the Zevrix
Solutions website, http://www.zevrix.com, as well as from authorized
resellers. Trial is also available for download. BatchOutput Server
runs on Mac OS X 10.4.2-10.6, a Universal Binary, and works with
Adobe InDesign CS-CS4. Files can be submitted from both Mac and PC
