Zevrix Solutions has announcesd Output Factory 1.0b1, a public beta of its new solution to automate output from Adobe InDesign.
Output Factory is an upgrade of the company’s BatchOutput, which automates printing, exporting and post-processing from InDesign. In addition to output of multiple files, single page export and variable file names, Output Factory offers features such as layer versioning, preflighting, workflow presets and processing history.
Output Factory is designed to interact with the Acrobat Pro preflight engine, provide file delivery capabilities and integrate with the Finder. Users can keep working with other programs while Output Factory processes InDesign files in the background. Or they can let it work while they’re on a lunch break or leave it working overnight to output hundreds of documents, and the job will be done when they return in the morning.
Output Factory supports printing as well as exporting to PDF, PostScript, EPS, Flash, INX, IDML, EPUB and several image formats. For more info, go to http://zevrix.com/BatchOutput.php .
