Automation and pre-flighting
Asanti optimizes production through specific automation tools (e.g. nesting, tiling, media handling, parameter presets, smart DQS possibilities), automated file intake (e.g. Asanti StoreFront) and powerful pre-flighting. The latter reduces idle time on printers, standardizes processes and avoids errors.
Guaranteeing color consistency and reproduction, Agfa’s intelligent and award-winning color management solution was developed to offer print producers a combination of outstanding print quality and incredible printing speed. It features, for example, calibrated print modes, spot color conversion based on Pantone libraries and patented technology of regularized profiles that ensures smooth vignettes.
New to Asanti Color Management is the support of G7 method to achieve visual accurate colors. This support is part of the integrated color management wizard of Asanti.
Integration and versatility
Asanti’s functionality results in optimal compatibility with other software tools, hardware devices and third-party print production systems. It easily integrates with Agfa’s Asanti StoreFront and PrintSphere, and with the latest Adobe PDF Print Engine (APPE), for example. When it comes to hardware compatibility, Asanti is especially suited for integration with the Jeti Tauro.

What’s more, the latest update of Asanti offers a new user interface for tiling and a specialized production dashboard displaying all print jobs, the number of prints, statuses of multiple engines, ink levels, elapsed time and more.
