Designed specifically for newspaper production, Elara 5 is a scalable, reliable and modular pre-press solution which optimises flexibility, efficiency and productivity.
By far the fastest newspaper workflow, Elara’s powerful RIP can process up to 1500 PDF pages per hour. By factoring in the capabilities of your production equipment, Elara will run production at the highest possible speed, while guaranteeing efficiency, reliability and flexibility.
Elara 5 represents a complete system, from PDF to plate, combining all the tools needed to precisely manage newspaper production pre-press in one intuitive, easy-touse solution. Therefore there’s no need to run separate software to take care of RIPing, pre-flighting, ink optimization etc.
An open architecture enables in-house developers to quickly and easily integrate existing systems if needed, and the ability to combine third party elements with Elara’s own modules allows you to create a workflow tailor-made to suit the intricacies of your own production requirements.
Elara 5 has the ability to support multiple print locations from a single cloud-based solution and is capable of supporting up to fifteen CTP devices, providing in-depth progress monitoring and real-time management information at all stages of the process. And, as all production data is mirrored across multiple servers, this guarantees minimal downtime.
Not only is Elara fully 64-bit but it also offers RGB-PDF support, multi-RIPing and in-RIP ink optimization, as well as built-in imposition modules which enable both PDF and TIFF to be used in a mix-and-match workflow. Elara’s secure External Portal is optimised to receive print tasks from customers.
